On Friday, Lil Wayne’s Funeral album dropped after a four-year wait. Weezy had previously mentioned the project back in 2016, leaving fans hungry for the release. Luckily, he dropped another Carter album two years ago, but now there’s more.
There are plenty of new tracks and several guest stars assisting on the hip-hop project. Fans are getting their first listen to the new album and reacting online to Wayne’s latest music.
Funeral features guests, tracklist
Initially, Lil Wayne mentioned Funeral in 2016, and he said it’d be out by the end of 2019. There was a slight delay, but it seems to have been worth the wait.
The new Lil Wayne album serves as a follow-up to the rapper’s 2018 Tha Carter V, which holds a 72 score on Metacritic. Just like his previous release, Funeral brings in the guest stars to assist with his newest project.
That includes Big Sean, Lil Baby, Jay Rock, 2 Chainz, Takeoff from Migos, and Lil Twist. Additionally, there’s Adam Levine, XXXTENTACION, The Dream, and O.T. Genesis to assist with various tracks.
Wayne’s album is his 13th studio release. It also includes a total of 24 tracks, which several Twitter users pointed out could be a reference to the late Kobe Bryant, who wore the No. 24.
Several of the songs also carry titles related to NBA stars with Bing James and Harden.
Check out the new album’s full tracklist and stream Funeral below with the Spotify player. Lil Wayne has also uploaded all of the songs to his official YouTube channel.
