Lil Wayne has dropped four new songs out of nowhere, including a freestyle over Playboi Carti’s hit song, “Magnolia.” The New Orleans rapper also shared “Loyalty,” “Mula Gang,” and “Fireworks.” On Instagram, he shared the following note: “Im STILL trying to fight for my Independence but today Im saying Fuk it and giving all my fans some new music! Thanks for being there and patiently waiting while I endure this fight.”
“Loyalty” featuring Gudda Gudda & HoodyBaby
The first track on the YouTube playlist is “Loyalty,” featuring Gudda Gudda & HoodyBaby. Produced by ChefBoy’RT@, the track is built around a busy drumbeat with midi toms, tapping hi-hats, and electronic claps. Weezy takes a backseat to his guests, letting them rock the majority of the song before he comes in and delivers some braggadocios bars.
Next up is Weezy’s take on Playboi Carti’s “Magnolia.” He raps over the funky, synth-heavy beat, “Hollup, I ain’t from the ‘Nolia, but Tunechi still a soldier / And rest in peace to Soulja, ’cause he was real Magnolia.” Playboi Carti is just 20-years-old — we can only imagine his excitement having a veteran like Wayne spit over his hit song.
“Fireworks” featuring Young Jeezy
To follow is “Fireworks” featuring Young Jeezy, produced by the epic Mike WiLL Made-It. Jeezy keeps it melodic and slow-paced, before an AutoTune’d Lil Tunechi comes in singing, “Big house, long hallways / I got ten bathrooms, I can shit all day / I’m the shit all day.”
The last track, “Mula Gang,” features Jay Jones, HoodyBaby & Euro. It sounds like a pretty normal Wayne instrumental — epic, synth-infested, and dripping with bass. Like “Loyalty,” Weezy takes a backseat, letting his guests start off the song with their respective bars.
These four songs come out of nowhere, acting as another signal that Tunechi is not done making music, which many fans worried may happen after a confusing tweet from the rapper last year.
I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I'm dun

As of now, Weezy seems to be happy making new work.
