It’s been a long 2 years since Lil Wayne released an album. Now it’s here and we can’t be more alive!
Weezy dropped his thirteenth album Funeral on January 31, 2020, and it’s already number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
This is the rap icon’s fifth No.1 album, beating out Roddy Rich’s Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial.
What Critics Are Saying
“Funeral succeeds because it refocuses Wayne’s energy on the basic elements of rap, before building back in that delirious extra layer.” – GQ
“Weezy is back in the booth and cruising, experimenting with an array of styles and a dizzying maze of wordplay.” – Pitchfork
Ingredients That Made The Album
Funeral has 24 singles with features from Big Sean, 2 Chainz, XXXTentacion, Lil Baby, The-Dream, Jay Rock, Takeoff, Adam Levine, O.T. Genasis and Lil Twist.
The eighth track “Bing James” ends with a 24 second moment of silence as a tribute to NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna along with 7 others died in a helicopter crash on January 26.
Wayne shocked the judges on the Season 3 premiere of The Masked Singer. But, we’re convinced everyone at home knew because no one has a voice like his.
After performing Lenny Kravitz’s ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way,’ judges were dumbfounded to find out who was really under the mask.
Watch the shocking reveal below!
Funeral is available on all streaming platforms
