Lil Wayne is up to something.
On Friday (April 3), Wayne revealed that he has a special project in the works to Instagram. “Got somethin special komin real soon! Y’all stay safe and healthy out there !! - Socially distant Tune,” he wrote alongside photos of himself sitting on a couch. Shortly after his post, fans shared their thoughts on what the potential project might be. Some believed that the New Orleans native is gearing up to release new music. If the prediction is true, it would serve as the follow-up to Weezy’s Funeral album, which released to streaming platforms in January 2020.
Throughout his career, Wayne has found ways to keep fans on the edge of their seats. Last month, the 37-year-old spoke about his decision to appear on “The Masked Singer.”
“I always hear everybody that does the show always talk about being how it is being behind the mask and all that,” he said about his experience. “And how they feel by not being seen and having to go throughout a few days or whatever being, you know, all that stuff. I didn’t get that feeling. Only thing I felt under the mask was, like, it was heavy. It was all good but I still didn’t understand being behind the mask and feeling something different. I didn’t get that feeling.”
He continued, “I’ve been watching since the first episode, because the first episode, when it came on I knew it was T-Pain. Because of that I told [Mack Maine] to call them. I told him ‘Let ‘em know I’m a huge fan’ and I wanted to get Nicki on there. Tell ‘em I would love to get Nicki on there. And it came back like, ‘Man they want you on there.’”
