Lil Wayne has the number one album in the country this week:
Funeral is the fifth leader for Lil Wayne, and it enters with 139,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Feb. 6, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The album was released on Jan. 31 via Young Money/Republic Records and follows Lil Wayne’s chart-topping Tha Carter V, which was released in 2018.
Travis Barker of Blink-182 has released a new collaboration with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross. It’s called “Gimme Brain” and comes on the heels of the launch of Barker’s new label DTA Records, an imprint of Elektra.
According to Sounds Music Group CEO, Solomon Sobande, Blink-182, Lil Wayne, Lil Nas X, and many more will be featured on the posthumous release from XXXTentacion:
There’s a healthy amount. Tory Lanez and Mavado; there’s a country song featuring Lil Nas X. One of the most surprising is Blink-182 — one of Jah’s favorite bands.
I’m not sure if this is a Travis Barker feature, or if the entire band is on a track, but to say this is disappointing to see would be an understatement.
Blink-182 have officially shared their mashup of “What’s My Age Again?” with Lil Wayne to streaming services. They’ve also posted up a limited edition t-shirt of the collaboration.
I had the opportunity to photograph the Blink-182 and Lil Wayne concert in Columbia, MD. You’ll find the gallery as well as my thoughts on the tour below.
According to multiple reports on Twitter, Lil Wayne cut his set short tonight after only a few songs, said the crowd wasn’t for him, and apparently he may be leaving the tour with Blink-182.
I’ll update this post with more information as it comes in.
Update: A video of Lil Wayne’s speech has been uploaded online. No word official announcement has been made from either Blink-182 or Lil Wayne’s camp so far.
Update #2: Lil Wayne has announced on Twitter that he will not be leaving the tour, writing, “Yesterday was krazy! But I want all my fans to know I won’t be quitting this tour! I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182.”
Blink-182 have announced a new tour with Lil Wayne. Neck Deep is opening. They’ve also changed up their website and shared a mashup of “Whats My Age Again?” and “A Milli.”
