Legends never die, with the exception of Lil Wayne’s New Album “Funeral”. Years of built anticipation had fans gasping for air as they were teased via coffin emojis on Instagram. Tunchei welcomes fans to the funeral, literally, through his first song while guests arrive on later tracks. Some of these features include: Big Sean, Lil Baby, Jay Rock, Adam Levine, 2 Chainz, Takeoff, The Dream, Lil Twist, and XXXTentacion. The funeral is here and the house is packed as artists collaborate to pay tribute to Lil Wayne’s thirteenth studio album.
As expected, the album cover is just as versatile as record-breaking hip hop star, Weezy. Written in an Old-English font, the title is superimposed to spell Lil Wayne when flipped upside down. A small but deadly detail fans have begun to notice. While Young Money Records pushes out the album, merchandise is available for purchase on Lil Wayne’s website. Business mogul and artist raps, “Welcome to the funeral, yeah, closed casket as usual.” Welcome back Weezy—stream “Funeral” now.
