Lil Wayne’s long-awaited first post-prison lyrics have arrived online in “Fire Flame,” a collaborative cut with the Birdman, tentatively slated for their next joint LP.
The track, which previously leaked online without Weezy’s rhymes, was posted on Cash Money affiliate DJ Khaled’s We the Best TV blog Monday afternoon (November 15). The Miami-based radio jock alerted the world to Wayne’s lyrical return via Twitter.
“Fresh off my bid, bitch, it’s Lil Tunechi,” Weezy spits over the synth-heavy number; last week, pictures of Wayne’s return to the recording booth emerged from his confidant/videographer DJ Scoob Doo.
“I’m so relaxed, my Gucci flats ain’t got a scratch,” he later continued. “And if you got problems with it, well, I will fix them cataracts/ They say it cost to be the boss, I paid the price including tax/ Bitch, I’m a fire-flame spitter, and to me you n—as wax.”
On the song, Wayne’s verses — the first and last — sandwich Birdman’s lyrics. The closing verse from Wayne features classic Cash Money braggadocio.
“Sitting in my hog, tell my chauffeur, ’To the penthouse,’ ” he spits. “Pockets so deep it’s like my money got to swim out.”
Khaled wrote in a Twitter message that “Fire Flame” will appear on the next Like Father, Like Son album from Lil Wayne and Birdman. The pair released their first joint album in 2006; that project featured the hit “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy.”
Last month, in an interview with MTV News, the Birdman said Wayne would work on a number of projects once he’s released from prison, including his next solo venture.
“He’s in beast mode,” Baby said. “When you put a shining star in a cage, what else can you make out of it? You just put him in beast mode.”
