Lil Wayne teases retirement with new album ‘Funeral’ featuring 2 Chainz, Takeoff & more

1 February 2020

Lil Wayne has been in hip-hop’s debate about the best living rappers for decades but the rapper’s reign might be coming to a formal end with the release of Funeral which many believe is Wayne’s last album.

At 24 tracks long, Funeral is a generous offering and houses plenty of new music for fans to take in and enjoy. 

Collaborations on this project include some of the biggest names in hip-hop and trap – Big Sean, Lil Baby, 2 Chainz, Takeoff and O.T. Genasis are among contributors to the project. 

Noticeably absent on the project are artists from the Young Money camp which at its peak included Nicki Minaj, Drake and Tyga. 

Wayne’s protege Lil Twist does make an appearance on the album though and hip-hop fans will remember Lil Twist as one of the youngers attached to the Young Money crew. 

Known for his versatile sound, the project effortlessly moves between genres. We hear R&B on some tracks, hip-hop on others and even country. “Trust Nobody” features Adam Levine and is clearly inspired by Wayne’s Southern upbringing.
