Rich The Kid has been a slept on heavy hitter in the game for quite some time now. Since his mixtape days in the mid 2010’s, the Atlanta rapper has applied endless pressure and he just turned it up a notch. Linking up with the living legend Lil Wayne is probably one of the best things to happen for his career — simply because Weezy is a (if not THE) goat and anything he touches is golden. What makes this collaboration even more special is that Tunechi actually asked Rich The Kid to do an album with him. Clearly, Rich is doing something right for a rapper of Wayne’s stature to reach out. Today (Oct. 1), the two rappers join forces for the release of their new Trust Fund Babies album.
Earlier this year, Young Money president Mack Maine took to his Twitter Space to announce that Lil Wayne had three new albums on the way — with Trust Fund Babies being the first up to the plate: “Anybody that’s a Wayne fan knows that I Am Not A Human Being 3 is coming up soon. Wayne and Rich The Kid have a project together that’s coming out soon. Collegerove 2 with him and 2 Chainz – we still call him Tity Boi. It’s a lot of music Wayne’s working on.”
Once the news broke, fans worldwide rejoiced because who doesn’t want new music from one of the greats? This has been quite a year for the Young Money general by the way. From top notch records to memorable features, Weezy seems to have tapped back into his mode where he’s a shark that smells blood when it comes to the music. A lot of people have doubted his greatness even as of today, but the New Orleans rapper continues to prove the naysayers wrong.
Tap into RTK and Weezy’s collab and appreciate greatness.
