“The Funeral” was first teased by Wayne all the way back in 2016. Yet it was not until today, that we finally are blessed with album number 13 from Weezy. With so many years in the rap game and with expectations always in the upper echelon, every release by Dewayne Carter is intriguing. Having moved past the days when he could push a million album sales in a week, Lil Wayne releases still command our attention just for the fact that we never know which Lil Wayne we will get. While most are still hoping for “mixtape Weezy“, it looks like the technical, lyrically dexterity Wayne is what seems to keep surfacing. With an album boasting 24 tracks, we get a pick of which Wayne we want. Beat selection seems to be Weezy’s achilles heel at this stage of his career, yet some bright spots on the album can be contributed to producers such as Mannie Fresh and Streetrunner supplying the soundscape. Guest features are provided by some of the hottest in the game such as 2 Chainz, Lil Baby, and Take Off., yet it is when Wayne rides solo he really shines. The track “Mama Mia” is a prime example because Weezy literally destroys the instrumental. With “The Funeral” really not being the most cohesive Wayne album ever, it proves that Weezy still has something to say and is not ready to be buried.
