It’s been a long time coming, but mixtape Weezy is back.
There was a time in the past where Lil Wayne he most polarizing figure in rap music. Even if you weren’t a fan of his music, you had to tune in to hear who he called out or what clever punchline he spit. Weezy went through a dry spell, but after his free album drops it’s game on for the New Orleans native.
Wayne has had a strong 2015. All of his guest spots (Tyler The Creator “Smuckers,” A$AP Rocky “M’s”) possessed high quality verses. Weezy then shocked the world by announcing a partnership with Jay-Z on his Tidal music platform. Weezy has immediately put his new platform to use, as he will release his “Free Weezy” album on Tidal.
From a business perspective, the "Free Weezy" album is a smart move. He will generate an unreal amount of traffic to the platform. If this project is up to par with his previous features this tape will capture the attention of mainstream and underground fans across the globe. This album could usher in the rebirth of the golden era in Lil Wayne’s career.
