Lil Wayne Reveals When He Will Release Funeral Album & Announces New Partnership With Video Game Company Ubisoft

Similar to every year before “Lil Weezyana Fest“, Lil Wayne phoned into Wild Wayne from New Orleans radio station Q93 a few days ago to promote his upcoming 5th annual music festival that will be taking place on September 7th.

During their conversation, Wayne chatted about the growth of his “Lil Weezyana Fest” as it has changed to a bigger location for this year and it will include a jazz tribute, carnival food, rides and 2 stages at the upcoming concert, as well as how he wants his festival to be up there with the rest of the big festivals, such as Lollapalooza.

Tunechi then went on to list who is on his Young Money record label (doesn’t name Drake) and reveal he will release his Funeral album at the end of this year. He even mentioned that Funeral is done and it is now up to Mack Maine to pick a bunch of songs for the project and title them.

Also in the 17-minute conversation, Weezy discussed what he does to create new experiences, his Young Money Sports agency, Los Angeles Lakers, Green Bay Packers, and announced he has just partnered with video game company Ubisoft were he will be releasing funny commercials and ads for the Ghost Recon Breakpoint marketing campaign!

Directors Talk About Working With Lil Wayne On Set Of Commercials

Directors Talk About Working With Lil Wayne On Set Of Commercials

Complex recently chopped it up with people that have worked with Lil Wayne on set of his commercials to see what it was like working with him.

Sara Gilbert, who is the Public Relations Manager for Sovereign Brands, talked about how Weezy acted as his own director to improve the scenes while on set of the Bumbu ads and the “A Word With Wayne” series:

“It must be from his experience being a professional for all of his adult life. He can hear something and put his own spin to it instantaneously. He might hear something upstairs or down the hallway-[maybe] someone shifted their weight and they have their keys in their pocket. He’ll stop and wait for the noise to clear and then he’ll resume or we’ll take it from the top. He doesn’t miss a stride, it doesn’t throw him off his game. The fact that he self-corrects, he’s directing himself, is amazing.”

Matt Aselton, who directed Tunechi in the commercials for Samsung, spoke on how his crew were unconvinced at first if Tune would be able to act the scenes, as well as how he reminds him of an athlete:
