Oh nostalgia! For true culture lovers, Lil Wayne has finally dropped his highly anticipated project, no ceiling 3hosted by DJ Khaled.
Legends of New Orleans provided us with a solid 20-track project that ran in just over an hour and took us back down a road many of us remember fondly. It starts with a small teaser video posted by DJ Khaled on Instagram.
“The mixtape game seems like a dying art because I was one of the pioneers of the craft and it played such a big part in my career that I felt it was only right to resurrect it,” Lil Wayne told Complex “Also, there are so many songs here I want to kill my way!”
The project offers fans some fun features and guest appearances from top artists such as Drake on “BB King Freestyle” and Atlanta’s Young Thug on “Out West.” He also brought in new members Hoodbaby and Euro. Wayne also recruited Gudda Gudda and Cory Gunz from the Young Money family. In a proud fatherly move, Wayne featured his sons Young Kam Carter, Lil Tune and Young Carter on “Kam,” “FL4M3$” and “Hollywood,” respectively. Young people will not disappoint. It’s easy to see that they were raised by one of the greatest men of all time.
Lil Wayne continues rap’s tradition of “used” beats that were popular before, following two predecessors from 2015 and 2009. For this installment of the series, we hear the New Orleans rapper hop on songs like the late Pop Smokes “Dior,” “Shake the Room” and “For the Night,” Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” and “SICKO MODE” by Travis Scott and more.
Wayne originally announced the project in August 2016, confirming that both no ceiling 3 and Carter VI on the way. Other projects are also rumored, including a new Nicki Minaj album, a collaboration with Juelz Santana on “I Can’t Feel My Face 2,” and even a follow-up to 2 Chainz’s Collegegrove 2.
Last week, Wayne was charged with a felony over a weapon found on his private jet in 2019, and he could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Just a few months ago, Lil Wayne was under fire for his seemingly strong allegiance to President Donald Trump. If nothing else, he stoked the flames with the lyrics, “Work on my demons, that’s Reisling’s beautiful Bae, she’s super loose I’m smoking, she said through it, she’s doing a lot of safe haven” didn’t hand me tax, fuck with Trump”
