Less than a week after Lil’ Wayne’s unreleased single “Lets Ride” featuring Sean Kingston leaked online, fans of the New Orleans rapper have discovered almost an entire album worth of unreleased Weezy tracks on SoundCloud.
On Saturday (January 11), a dozen unreleased Wayne records surfaced on SoundCloud. The leaked playlist is called Lil’ Wayne: Lost Grails. The songs were uploaded to the account of SoundCloud user Roadside Surgery. By Tuesday afternoon (January 14), the playlist was reduced to 10 tracks.
The unreleased songs were uploaded to the indie streaming platform with Japanese titles, making confirmation of a Lost Grails tracklist difficult. However, translated song titles from the playlist include “Kidnap Cupid,” “Jungle,” “Lost The Holy Grail,” “Heavy World ,” “Bipolar” and “Class” featuring Mack Maine & Kidd Kidd.
Without knowing the source of the leak, it’s nearly impossible to pinpoint exactly when the songs were recorded.
Weezy’s cadence and hints dropped throughout the playlist — including a shoutout to his 2013 album I Am Not A Human Being II and a verse about signing Amy Winehouse’s autograph — suggest the leaked tracks aren’t recent recordings.
Tunechi is no stranger to leaked music. At the height of Wayne’s career, notable Hip Hop DJ’s often leaked entire mixtapes of unreleased tracks online without the artist’s consent.
These recent Wayne leaks are being uploaded ahead of several new official Lil Wayne projects.
The platinum-selling artist partnered with ESPN for a new sports-themed track called “Playoff.” The song, which features Poppy J, Corey Henry and The Treme Funktet, debuted on Monday (January 13) during the LSU and Clemson National Championship game.
In an interview with New Orleans radio station Q93, Weezy confirmed his next album Funeral is complete. Wayne has yet to announce an official release date for the project. Rumored guest artists include Lil Baby, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and Gudda Gudda.
