Before Lil Wayne’s Carter V album dropped at midnight, reports surfaced on Thursday saying that XXXTentacion would be featured on the album, further building hype for the project even more so. Although we weren't sure it was true, it turns out it was thankfully as the late Florida rapper makes an appearance on track #2 off the album called “Don’t Cry,” which we’re highlight for y’all right here.
Over production from Z3N & Ben Billions, Wayne delivers an introspective record that finds him opening up and addressing his demons & emotion as he discusses many difficult situations he’s endured in life. XXXTentacion on the other hand handles the chorus only, crooning “Don't cry, don’t go, Won’t lie, I fuckin' love you” repeatedly. Wayne evens ends the song by telling the late X to “rest in paradise.” “And XXXtentacion on my motherfuckin' afterlife, Rest in paradise,” Wayne raps.
Take a listen to the highly anticipated collab and sound off in the comments (below). Look for XXXTentacion to be featured on Kanye’s Yandhi album as well, dropping Saturday night.
You’re staring into the clouds
Are they rising or they comin' down
I see death around the corner
And the U-turn sign's lookin' like a smile
What do I do now? Who gon' find me, how?
Nowhere to turn but around and round
Just another nigga that done lost his head
No, a fucking king that forgot his crown
I am not number one, it's true
I'm number 9-27-82
Color blind, even if I may be blue
A lot on my plate, name my favorite food
- Lil Wayne
