Fans worried about Lil Wayne’s so-called retirement can be “Grateful” for new music.
Just a week after hinting at hanging up the mic for good, Weezy unleashes “Grateful,” a TIDAL exclusive that features Gudda Gudda and production by StreetRunner and Rugah Rah.
“Grateful” allows Tunechi to open up about his ongoing Cash Money feud.
“I been working hard for no prize,” he raps. “I’m still grateful though I show pride / And you don’t see Stunna right next to me / And I won’t see Stunna write checks to me / They can’t put no more Weezy Baby out / That’s that Cash Money vasectomy / I still got love for my enemy / ‘Cause I know it’s tough to be interesting / I know it’s tough to be anything / But be grateful.”
The song also lets him explain his current mind state. “Tell the press I’m not depressed,” he raps. “I just had to press reset.”
Wayne was singing a different tune last week, when he claimed to be “dun” with the music industry. Many supporters, including Kendrick Lamar and Young Thug, have celebrated Weezy’s career following his retirement talks.
For now, be “Grateful” for some new Weezy.
