Finally, some new Lil Wayne music
During the Washington D.C. stop of his Release Partiez tour, Lil Wayne finally revealed some information that Weezy fans have been awaiting for months.
My new album is called F-W-A, and it will be out the 4th of July.
FWA, or the Free Weezy Album, has been teased for most of the year, especially in light of Wayne’s ongoing struggles with Birdman and his record label, Cash Money Records, whom he’s suing for $50 million in back pay, among other things. Wayne’s forthcoming 5th installment in his Tha Carter series, Tha Carter V, has been promoted and given artwork, but since last fall’s news of Cash Money’s hindrance of its release, Weezy has actively tried to explore other options.
One of those options could play a part in the release of FWA. Over the weekend, Wayne announced that he’d just “signed a deal with Jay Z,” leading to speculation that he’d finally broken out of his deal with Birdman, and signed on the dotted line with Jay Z’s Roc Nation label. However, it turned out Wayne was referring to a deal he signed with Jay’s streaming service, TIDAL, making him the newest “co-owner” of the company. Could we be getting a July 4th release of Free Weezy Album on TIDAL? We’ve already seen Wayne drop exclusives on the service. He dropped “Glory,” a 5-minute black-out session, on TIDAL earlier this month.
