The Rockwilder-produced song appears on the Young Money President‘s This Is Just A Mixtape, which was hosted by Don Cannon and released back in 2009. “I’m too fly, can’t stay up in my bat cave; Hello, say goodbye when the Gat wave; Hold on to your surfboard when the Gat wave; Homie, you can be deleted like backspace; I’m comin’ through like a fax page” You can listen to “AK-47” below.

  9. Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz – Downtown

    Here is another Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz leftover from their collaboration album, ColleGrove, from back in 2016. We previously heard “Everyday Drug Music” and “Big Ballin’“ yesterday, and now this new song that has surfaced online is called “Downtown“. You can listen to the ColleGrove duo’s “Downtown” collabo after the jump below! What are your thoughts on it?
  10. Yesterday, T-Pain took to Twitter to announce he has an upcoming collaboration with Lil Wayne after Wayne has sent him new vocals. The Tallahassee music artist then took to Instagram to share a text message he sent to Weezy thanking him for the verse and telling him he “killed this shit”, as well as that he will be using it as the outro on his forthcoming album. Pain also mentioned to Tunechi that the world wants a new T-Wayne collaboration project from the both of them to which Tune replied saying: “I’m with it whenever u ready! I’m here mane!! They need MUSIK”. Would you like to see and hear a T-Wayne II album?
  11. LeBron James recently took to social media to show himself listening to Lil Wayne‘s Da Drought 3 mixtape in his car. In the clip, which you can check out below, the professional NBA player can be seen bumping Weezy‘s “Get High, Screw The World” song and rapping along to it. This is not the first time that Bron has done this, because in 2018 he was spotted jamming out to Tunechi and Kendrick Lamar‘s “Mona Lisa” collaboration, as well as playing old Tune songs while getting tipsy off wine! PS: Swipe right on the video above to see more!
  12. Two new 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne collaborations have surfaced online titled “Everyday Drug Music” and “Big Ballin’” that were both produced by Mannie Fresh. The “Everyday Drug Music” song was recorded for Tunechi and Mannie‘s upcoming joint EDM project (hence the title of of the track) and “Big Ballin’” is a leftover from Tune and Tity Boi‘s collabo album ColleGrove. We first heard a preview of the “Big Ballin’” record, which samples Big Tymers’ single of the same name, back in 2016 and Chainz can also be heard saying “ColleGrove” at the start of it. The third verse from Weezy sounds unfinished, but hopefully the full official mastered version is released soon!
  13. The co-producer of “Uproar“, Avenue Beatz, recently chopped it up with XXL all about his work with Swizz Beatz on Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V single. Avenue spoke on sampling G. Dep‘s “Special Delivery“, if he expected “Uproar” to be as big as it is, and getting Weezy to rap over the beat after he said that he didn’t like it on “Green Ranger” off Dedication 4. Also in their interview, which you can read after the jump below, the producer discussed his first time meeting Tunechi, co-producing Tune‘s “Glory” song off the Free Weezy Album with Angel “Onhel” Aponte, and plenty more! XXL: “Uproar” had such a great response. Were you prepared for it all? Avenue: Nah, I don’t think anybody expected it to be as big as it got. Even as far as the dance challenge. Yeah, I’m from the Bronx, so you know, that’s all we know. Nobody could have pictured it coming back how it did. It seems like the culture’s damn near back [laughs]. How did you and Swizz put your personal touch on the “Special Delivery” beat? I always knew as a kid I had the record in the stash. Like, the original “Special Delivery” [sample]. So we just reconstructed it—tried to gather the same feeling that it was before. The drum part is easy. That’s the science part as far as making it knock, but the drums we just made sure it was enough for people to dance to, you know? Bring the dancing back. Swizz is a legend. I’m aspiring to be one as well and the old making-the-beat-to-change-the-game, we got a billion of those. We just wanted to capture the dance aspect of it ’cause that was the ceiling point of the culture at the time. How did y’all get Wayne to rap on the “Special Delivery” sample? On “Green Ranger” he said he wasn’t fond of it. Yeah, I read about that. I had no clue about him and Cole using it; I found out afterwards. I was just like Wow, okay. Cool [laughs]. You just never know. It’s a perfect example of stepping out your comfort zone. And he did so and look what it’s doing for the people. And for him, you know, that’s crazy. What was Wayne’s response to it all? I got to see him at SNL and he seemed overwhelmed. But you know, it’s Wayne. He ready for all this, man. That was your first time meeting him? Yeah, that was probably my first time meeting him. I been around. I was [a] young boy, been around for a long time. I’ve seen a lot of people in passing but that was the first time I actually got to see him in person for real. You do his “Glory” beat too? Yeah, that was me and my good friend Onhel; Angel Aponte. We’ve known him for a long time—this industry is like a [fraternity] [laughs]. You never know who’s who, how long people known each other and where they know people from. [Wayne’s] engineer is also family with our circle, ’cause we all family. But his engineer for the past 10, 12 years, he’s a good friend of mine and he produces as well so he kinda reached out to me at that time and was just like, “Yo, Wayne need that shit that’s not that generic shit, but that shit.” I just sent what I had and I was surprised he picked that one, too. We had another one before that, I believe, but you know the technology nowadays, it allows you to just catch a vibe with people without even really bein’ around. You get to really reach your full potential that way. Did you let Wayne know that you were the one who produced that song when you met him? Nah, nah. It’s SNL. I gotta respect the relationship—Swizz is big brother, you know? There’s a lot of boundaries people like to step in this business ’cause everybody is out for self at the end of the day. And you know I understand the person I’m with—it ain’t no industry thing with him. He came in with family and people that care about him. And you gotta respect that as such. Because if you disrespect that you’re disrespecting everything. Ez Elpee seemed upset about his beat being sampled for “Uproar.” Have you spoken to him about the track at all? I don’t know how the business is being handled. I know everybody got a lawyer and Puff is family, so I didn’t know anything was said about it. I just know I looked up to him, too. You know Ez Elpee, I was a kid coming up to that. I’m 31-years-old, so I’m just happy to be here. Do you remember listening to “Special Delivery” when it first came out? Hell yeah. Did it have a really big impact on you growing up? Yes, yes it did. I was a DJ at 12 years old. I owned that on wax. So you were playing it in parties at a young age. Yeah, at the little junior high school parties—I was doin’ a lot [laughs]. “Special Delivery” was one. Everybody wanted to hear “DooDoo Brown” back then but “Special Delivery” made it to where the kids my age can get involved with what’s goin’ on, Harlem Shakin’ and all that.
  14. Lloyd recently stopped by Hot 107.9 radio station in Atlanta to chop it up with Stuey Rock and DJ Kash from The Durtty Boyz in a video that you can check out below. Before their interview began, Lloyd and The Durtty Boyz chopped it up backstage and discussed various subjects. One of these things included the R&B singer-songwriter revealing how he ended up on Young Money‘s “BedRock” single instead of Omarion after Lil Wayne had fell out with him. Later on in their conversation while talking about Wayne‘s “Uproar” record, Lloyd mentioned that he would love to do exactly what Swizz Beatz did to Tunechi, which was send him every beat/song he has ever worked on because he just wants Tune on his music. The New Orleans-born music artist even said that Lil Wayne can kill any song with any subject matter. For an example, he used a song that was about his little sister who died at a young age by saying Wayne could kill that song too. Lloyd also added that Weezy could get on any track and rap your own story better than you!
  15. For a stop on his mini “I Ain’t Shit Without You” fan appreciation tour with TIDAL, Lil Wayne put on a live show at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia on December 19th. I will be posting up footage from all of the 4 concerts on this tour soon (I was on vacation when they took place), but for now, we can see some dope pics from the ATL stop. You can check out the photos of Wayne performing live at the Buckhead Theatre after the jump below, courtesy of Tenzin Sherab! Photo credit: Tenzin Sherab.
