Even on the day he pleaded guilty to a gun-possession charge
in New York, it seems nothing can stop [artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] from putting out music. With hundreds of unreleased songs in his catalog, two untitled new songs, purportedly from Wayne’s forthcoming No Ceilings mixtape,
In one, he raps over the beat for F.L.Y.’s “Swag Surfin’.”
“I said, ‘T.I. hold ya head, and Mack hold your head,’ ” he raps. “I wish I could, but I can’t say some other names/ I can’t because of the feds,” Weezy declares amid raps that include references having his own island and his family.
“I’m a New Orleans n—a, I don’t take no sh–/ Took the brain off the whip, now it doesn’t make no sense … I love my baby mamas, they get my highest honors/ Gotta take care of them kids, man, I know you heard Obama.”
He shouts out “no ceilings!” at the end.
During the next record, the Fireman freestyles over Gucci Mane’s “Wasted,” touching on global warming, his status at the top of the rap game, and wiping out the competition.
“It’s Young Money, we the f—in’ greatest,” he boasts. “We done put them other n—as on hiatus.”
Wayne asks “Where did the ceilings go?” at the end of his bars.
Earlier this month, Young Money crew member and Wayne’s close friend Mack Maine told Mixtape Daily that No Ceilings was deep in production.
“On his birthday, he was saying, ‘Everyone else is putting out mixtapes, so I gotta show them that I still got it,’ ” Mack said. “And he also said that a lot of beats are coming out that he likes, so, you know, once that happens, he’s gotta put out his own versions to the beats he likes. It’s not fair. It’s not necessary, to me. Like, what are you trying to prove? Let these little dudes have their lane for a few, man. He’s about to come and smash people’s albums.”
Mack has since tweeted that the mixtape was completed, although there has been no word from Lil Wayne’s camp as to when the mixtape is coming out.
In the hours after Wayne’s plea was announced, Rick Ross, Juelz Santana and DJ Drama weighed in with their reactions.
