If anyone has a reason to be happy this week, it’s Lil Wayne — the Young Money head honcho was able to receive a full pardon from Donald Trump just before he departed his presidential seat, effectively clearing Weezy of gun charges he received last year. Whether or not this is a celebratory release, fans now get to check out a new single from Wayne titled “Ain’t Got Time,” which features rising star Fousheé and sees the rapper addressing his legal issues over production from R!O and Kamo:
“Full of vanilla, flyin’ over chocolate mountains, I stare at the Pacific while I’m smokin’ on a kilometer, the feds, they hot on us, one hundred on the thermometer, they raided my private plane, I went got one that’s more privater/
R.I.P. Juice WRLD, wrote that on two cups, cuz pour out a lil’ juice for him, shit gave me goosebumps, n***a been through too much, lookin’ in the rearview to see the future.../”
Last year, Lil Wayne was on an absolute tear musically, delivering a slew of releases including his thirteenth studio album Funeral (as well its deluxe upgrade), Tha Carter V (Deluxe), and — most recently — the third installment of his No Ceilings mixtape series. Hosted by DJ Khaled, No Ceilings 3 was released in two parts, A Side and B Side, making for a whopping 34 cuts and plentiful collaborations with Big Sean, Drake, Rich The Kid, Young Thug, and more. In addition to his own work, Lil Wayne contributed to other hit songs released throughout 2020, including 2 Chainz’s “Money Maker,” A$AP Ferg’s “No Ceilings,” Benny The Butcher’s “Timeless,” Jack Harlow’s “WHATS POPPIN (Remix),” Pop Smoke’s “Iced Out Audemars (Remix),” and City Girls “Pussy Talk (Remix),” among others.
