Lil Wayne Re-Releases “No Ceilings” Mixtape On Streaming Platforms With New Version Of “Kobe Bryant”

Lil Wayne Re Releases No Ceilings Mixtape On Streaming Platforms With New Version Of Kobe Bryant

A year after first hearing about this, Lil Wayne has now added his classic No Ceilings mixtape, which is nearly 11-years-old, to all music streaming services.

Unfortunately, the following songs could not be cleared so they have been left off: “Ice Cream“, “D.O.A.“, “Poke Her Face“, “Run This Town“, “I Got No Ceilings“, “Pop That“, and “Sweet Dreams“.

For some strange reason, Drake is credited as a feature on “I’m Single” when he is not on it and Shanell is listed as a feature on “That’s All I Have” when it is Zipp. However, Weezy has made his new version of “Kobe Bryant available as the outro on this project as promised.

You can view the new artwork and stream Tunechi‘s No Ceilings tape after the jump below. No Ceilings 3 next!

Later on in their interview at the 1:08:20 mark, CWC revealed that her signing to YM was one of the main reasons why Wayne sued Birdman.

Chanel West Coast then told the story of when Young Mula accepted an award at the 2014 BET Awards and all of them went on stage, she knew then that Minaj didn’t like her as she walked in a different direction from them all.
