Lil Wayne Drops Post Malone, Gucci Mane Collaborations
Ahead of his appearance on “SNL” this evening, Lil Wayne drops a trio of Tha Carter V bonus tracks, which hit streaming services on Friday night.
First up is a remix to “What About Me,” which now features Post Malone. Malone recorded a last-minute addition to the original track, but it didn’t make the album in time. His melodic flow can now be heard on the Auto-Tuned track, which was also supposed to feature Drake, according to the song’s co-writer Johnny Yukon.
Gucci Mane joins Weezy on the club banger “In This House,” which features a sample of Frank Ski’s Baltimore house classic “There’s Some Whores in This House.” Guwop raps about his bad chick and long money (“Ask your bitch ’bout me”), while Tunechi shouts out Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, and Dr. Dre (“I am the new N.W.A”).
Last up is a solo track called “Hasta La Vista.” Over the Tay Keith production (“Sicko Mode,” “Look Alive”), Wayne borrows from the Terminator. “Hasta la vista, baby / Gone!” he raps on the hook.
The bonus tracks follow the September release of Tha Carter V, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and scored the second-biggest streaming week ever for an album.
