Lil Wayne Dropping A New Album This Year ‘The Funeral’

It’s no secret that Lil Wayne has been working on his ‘Funeral’ album, with speculation stemming back months. Today Lil Wayne has provided a bit of concrete information surrounding the project and its potential release window. Weezy revealed in New Orleans radio station Q93 that his new album,’ The Funeral’, has been finished for a minute. At around the five-minute mark, Lil Wayne claims that the project will be arriving by year’s end, although he doesn’t specify which month. “You know how it works,” teases Wayne. “My album’s always done. It just takes Mack to come in there to rack up a couple of songs and name them. That’s how it goes around here. I work every day. It just takes them to come in and say ‘let me get these twenty songs, can I have these and name them, and we go from there.'” While it’s not much, it’s still interesting to see a glimpse into the Young Money workflow, as well as some of Weezy’s current studio habits. When asked whether he’s still going off the dome in the booth, Wayne affirms that old habits die hard. “Same formula, I can’t write nothing down, I got way too old to be trying to read something.” He laughs. “I can’t write nothing down, I’m going straight off the top…It makes everything more valid, more valuable.”
