Lil Wayne, who recently severed all ties and negotiations with Cash Money head honcho Birdman, gave his first interview since the Nightline conversation where he distanced himself from Black Lives Matter and said he doesn’t experience racism.
He stopped by skateboarder Chris Roberts’ The Nine Club podcast, where they talked about owning Amazon’s Echo Alexa, watching basketball games with Jimmy Goldstein, being fans of the Lakers and Packers, skating, his skate park in Miami and more.
He also announced a new project, Funeral.
“Just make sure you know that Funeral is coming soon,” he said. “I don’t have a release date, but I have a whole bunch of good news coming soon. If you’re a Wayne fan, we bout to hold our heads high.” He also said it’s “already printed up,” which means it could be released any day now.
His Tha Carter V album has been the main driving point of the beef between Wayne and Birdman, so I assume this project will have to get released for free so he doesn’t have to go through Cash Money.
The full interview is just over an hour long, but they start talking about music around the 55-minute mark.
