Lil Wayne Snuck In A Cash Money Dis On His New Gucci Mane Collab ‘Oh Lord’

The pair reunites to offer up prayers for freedom

Since being released from prison in May, Gucci Mane’s been on a hot creative streak. His second album this year, Woptober, arrives October 17, but until then, he’s keeping up the momentum with “Oh Lord,” a spiritual collab with Lil Wayne.

“Take these shackles off me,” Gucci raps in the first verse over a bombastic beat and haunting keys, further declaring, “I’m a prophet, a legend / I’m not beggin’ / I rather die for my freedom than live like a peasant.”

Weezy swoops in on the second verse, calling on the Lord for help as he cuts ties with his Cash Money family: “I gotta feed the family, but I had to leave the family / I cut off CMB, I’m an amputee / But I never leave Christianity.” Yep, there’s nothing ambiguous about where his loyalties lie. Lord, hear his prayer.

“Oh Lord” appears on the Birth of a Nation soundtrack, which arrives tomorrow and also features tracks from Pusha T, Nas, 2 Chainz, and Meek Mill. The film, which tells the story of Nat Turner’s historic slave rebellion, premieres in theaters on October 7.
