In relation to the album, "tha Carter" is interpreted as Lil Wayne's building, crackhouse, or castle as a physical symbol for Lil Wayne's dynasty.
It should also be noted that "tha Carter" was released under the Cash Money Records label and Nino Brown and his clique in New Jack City was known as the CMB or Cash Money Brothers.
Tha Carter, Vol. 2 - Sports Store (886 words)
Tha Carter was built on Mannie's beats and Wayne's newfound flow; Mannie laying the foundation to this complex, and Wayne building from there with his rhymes.
While Tha Carter was a great release, Wayne sounded a bit too comfortable flowing over the beats Mannie produced; changing his enviorment like he did on this release brought out the best in Wayne.
Tha Carter II is Wayne's first album since Mannie Fresh left, and it kinda shows.
