Just a little while back, before Lil Wayne resolved his issues with Birdman which in turn gave rise to the release of his “The Carter V” album, he was already in the process of putting together another album which he titled “Funeral” as he had earlier shared back in 2016 on “The Nine Club” podcast, “Make sure they know that Funeral is coming soon,” he said. “That’s my music. Get your roses ready. I don’t have a release date, but I have a whole bunch of good news coming soon.”
Well Weezy has brought “Funeral” back to the limelight’s and given hope for an early release as he says the album is done in his latest interview with his friend Wild Wayne from New Orleans radio station Q93. “The Funeral is my next album, I’mma be dropping that by the end of the year,” said Lil Wayne.
When Wild Wayne further questioned if it was close to being done, Wayne said his albums are usually done and that it’s up to the Young Money president Mack Maine to pick some songs, name them and make them ready for release. Listen to the audio below. Weezy has never been shy about not being too involved with the album releasing process as he lets his team handle that part of the business while he focuses purely on making music.
