American rapper Lil Wayne has announced his new album ‘Funeral’.
The ‘Lollipop’ rapper will release his 13th studio album the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Tha Carter V’ – on January 31, 2020.
The hip-hop star shared a clip of what is presumably a preview of one of the tracks on the upcoming LP, on which he spits: “Welcome to the funeral/ Closed casket as usual.”
The 37-year-old entrepreneur has accompanied his new album release with a range of ‘Funeral’ merchandise, ranging from shirts, graphic tees, hoodies and beanies.
In 2019, Wayne whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. supported pop-punk legends Blink-182, and the rapper admitted he had fun playing to a different kind of audience.
He said during the run: “I mean, there’s a huge difference in crowd energy. Those folks they’re there to have fun and that’s not to say that when we go to hip-hop shows that we’re not there to have fun – but you know, we also fly and we don’t wanna get too sweaty, and we don’t wanna look too crazy. You know, we don’t wanna lose our minds. They don’t have none of those restrictions. They wanna look too crazy, they wanna get sweaty and they wanna lose their minds.”
He also teamed up with the ‘I Miss You’ group’s drummer Travis Barker and Rick Ross on the track ‘Gimme Brain’.
Praising the stickman’s “swag”, he said: He said: “Man, Travis, plain and simple, his swag is great.
The features in the 12 track album are quite interesting, as we see the likes of pop singer Halsey, Corey Gunz, Gudda Gudda, Big Sean, Trippie Redd, Nicki Minaj, DaBaby, Lil Baby and Roc Nation boss Jay Z.
Jay and Wayne have shared a bitter-sweet type of relationship over the years. Both have dissed each other in tracks and on stage shows. However, the latter years have seen the two label executives working out their differences, with Jay Z even helping Tunechi out of a tough spot when he needed some extra change for a tax bill.
