New Orleans, LA – Lil Wayne is getting closer to dropping his next album, Funeral, but he has some other irons in the fire as well.
According to a recent interview with New Orleans radio station Q93, the rap veteran has just partnered with video game company Ubisoft to release funny commercials and ads for the Ghost Recon Breakpoint marketing campaign.
Elsewhere in the interview, Weezy talks about the upcoming Lil’ Weezyana Fest, its new location and this year’s performers. He also touches on the current Young Money roster and promises Funeral is coming soon.
“I’m gonna be dropping that by the end of the year, ” he says. “You know how it work. My album’s always done. It just takes Mack [Maine] to come in there to rack up a couple of songs and name them. That’s how it go round here. I work every day. It just take them to come in and say ‘let me get these twenty songs, can I have these and name them, and we go from there.'”
He adds he still spits all of his lyrics “off the top.”
“Same formula, I can’t write nothing down, I got way too old to be trying to read something,” he explains. “I can’t write nothing down, I’m going straight off the top … it makes everything more valid, more valuable.”
Funeral serves as Wayne’s follow-up to the highly anticipated Tha Carter V, which was released last September.
