Lil Wayne Talks Funeral Album, New Generation Rappers, Working With American Eagle & More

Pierce Simpson from Complex sat down with Lil Wayne for a one on one interview to promote his new Young Money clothing line with American Eagle, which Cortez Bryant first told us about last month before we then saw a preview of the collection earlier this month.

During their conversation, which you can watch below, Wayne also spoke on what his favorite piece from his new fashion line is, being shocked that American Eagle wanted to work with him, new generation rappers, TRUKFIT, how the last 18 months of his life have been, his upcoming Funeral album, and more.

While discussing Funeral, Tunechi says Tez Poe has a release date for the project, but he doesn’t want to announce it as of right now and so it’s “coming soon”. Tune even explained that he never records music for a specific album; he just records a bunch of songs and lets Tez pick which ones will appear on the certain project. It is very “rare” Weezy is in the “I’m about to go record this album” mode as it has only ever happened once, which was when he was locked up in jail!

A “Celebration Of Life” tribute concert was held for the late Mac Miller, who died from a drug overdose on September 7th, at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California on October 31st.

During the benefit show that included performances from Action Bronson, Anderson.Paak, Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, Miguel, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Travis Scott, Ty Dolla $ign, Vince Staples, and more, there was a big screen that played messages for Mac from music artists that couldn’t make it.

One of these shout outs that played on the screen was from Lil Wayne at his TRUKSTOP skate park, who shared his memories of Miller and recalled doing their “The Question” collaboration together back in 2012. Wayne also went on to explain the difference between “listening” and “hearing”.
