Lil Wayne Funeral Album Has Been Nominated At The 2021 GRAMMYs

The nominations for the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards, which will be airing on January 31st on CBS, were announced yesterday and Lil Wayne‘s latest album, Funeral, earned a nod.

However, it is not Wayne that earned the nomination; it is art directors Kyle Goen and Alex Kalatschinow, who are the designers behind the official artwork for Funeral.

In the “Best Recording Package” category, Funeral will go up against other art directors for their work on Coldplay’s Everyday Life, Grouplove’s Healer, Caspian’s On Circles, and Desert Sessions’ Vols. 11 & 12 projects.

Do you think Kyle and Alex have a good chance at winning the “Best Recording Package” award? The name flip on ‘lilwayne’ and ‘funeral’ was dope!

An Art Student Helped Pay Her University Fees By Making A Custom Necklace For Lil Wayne

Since his 36th birthday, Lil Wayne has been spotted rocking a new custom necklace with an 18-carat yellow-gold pendant in the shape of his face on it.

It turns out that this pendant, which features 2 white diamonds for Wayne‘s tear drop face tattoos, was gifted to him for his birthday from a close friend. You can get a better look at the chain after the jump below.

A 29-year-old art student named Joy Bonfield-Colombara was struggling to pay her £9,500.00-a-year course at the Royal College Of Art university in London, England and considered on dropping out until she received an e-mail from one of Weezy‘s close friends.

Joy revealed to the BBC that she had 2 – 3 weeks to create the pendant in time for Tunechi‘s birthday and after selling it to Tune‘s friend for “thousands” of pounds, the money she earned was used to help pay a “chunk” of her course fees so she could carry on at university! What are your thoughts on the piece?
