Everything You Need To Know About Lil Wayne’s “Velvet Sessions”

Everything You Need To Know About Lil Wayne Velvet Sessions

Last week, an unofficial Lil Wayne project leaked online titled Velvet Sessions, which I did not post on this website for obvious reasons! The project included 9 brand new Wayne songs, plus “Zero“. The majority of them were recorded for Velvet.

If you recall, Mack Maine announced in early 2017 that Weezy will be releasing an album called Velvet, while a Young Money affiliate also hinted at it dropping last year. However, when another Velvet leftover track leaked this summer titled “Deep Sleep“, we got news that the album had been scrapped and will no longer be released.

There is one beautiful song from the Rebirth era on the project that needs to be released officially somehow called “Little Girl’s Eyes“. It is a record from Mr. Carter about his daughter Reginae Carter that samples Lenny Kravitz’ track of the same title. We actually heard a snippet in September that at first we thought could of been “Famous” off Tha Carter V.

Also on the project is a CD quality version of Tunechi‘s freestyle from the Young Money cypher with Karen Civil TV that took place back in 2015. This song is named “HitMan” and it was recorded for Sorry 4 The Wait 2. The intro on Velvet Sessions, which is called “Where My Old Lady“, includes lyrics from Tune talking about “working hard on Tha Carter V”. Lastly, the outro track titled “Who” is a Dedication 6 leftover.

The songs “Weak” and “Tevin” sample SWV’s “Weak” and Tevin Campbell’s “I’m Ready“. For those of you that have managed to hear Lil Wayne‘s unofficial Velvet Sessions, what was your favorite track off the project?

Kidd Kidd Talks Working With Lil Wayne Back In The Sqad Up Days & Original Young Money

Kidd Kidd Talks Working With Lil Wayne Back In The Sqad Up Days & Original Young Money

Kidd Kidd recently sat down with Civil TV to discuss working with Lil Wayne back in the Sqad Up days, being a part of the original Young Money crew, and if he was ever officially signed to the record label.

“I was never really signed to Young Money or anything. It was more like: ‘Oh you got skills? Cool, roll with us.’ I’ve been around Wayne since like 2002 when we were doing hella mixtapes and shit. The Sqad mixtapes. That was the original Young Money. It was me, him, Gudda Gudda, T-Streets… so yeah, that was big in the South. So when people come up to me like: ‘Yo Kidd, I’ve been fucking with you since the Sqad days’ – that’s when I know you’re a real fan.”

The G-Unit rapper also still has an unreleased collaboration with Weezy called “Ejected” from 2013, so hopefully we will hear that soon!
