Rich The Kid and Lil Wayne’s collaborative album is set to drop in a few days. On Thursday (Sept. 23), the “Plug Walk” emcee took to Instagram to announce the title and release date of his upcoming project with the New Orleans star.
“Me & @liltunechi album Trust Fund Babies dropping Oct 1st. Preorder link in bio,” he wrote. Alongside the caption was the cover art, which displays a cartoon of him and Wayne as babies posing in front of wads of cash.
The announcement of the Rich The Kid and Tunechi album follows several teases from the New Yorker.
After declaring the “Lollipop” lyricist “the best rapper alive, he took to TikTok to post a video of him in Weezy’s Miami studio alongside the caption, “What have I & Lil Wayne been working on for so long?” Most recently, amid an Instagram Live session, he told fans that his joint album with the “Seeing Green” rapper would be coming out soon. “When’s the album?” he said in the clip. “Rich and Tunechi album is coming like very soon, in the next 30 days, I feel like yea fuck ’em.”
Wayne has also been vocal about his admiration for RTK, specifically his ability to ride a skateboard. “They got people who don’t be wanting to show they skills for real until they get around me,” the New Orleans rapper once said. “Man, I’m gone expose you. First of all, Rich The Kid — man, the man skate with three watches on. Man that’s just that though.”
On another occasion, RTK posted a photo of him and Tunechi, and told fans that Wayne called him one of this generation’s rap G.O.A.T.s.
The forthcoming Trust Fund Babies project marks the first of three Wayne albums that are slated to come out. Per Mack Maine, Tunechi is also planning to release I Am Not A Human Being 3 and Collegrove 2 with 2 Chainz.
