Lil Wayne says goodbye to Birdman and Cash Money Records on his gospel-esque new track, “Grateful.” The Young Money leader called the song a “new chapter” in his life and from the sounds of it, Weezy is moving on to greener pastures.
Produced by StreetRunner and Rugah Rah, it’s a stirring track with a gospel choir and trap music-inspired productions. The melody also reminds us of Kanye West’s haunting banger, “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.”
On the song, Tunechi calls out Birdman by name and proclaims to cut all ties from his former label. “And you don’t see Stunna right next to me / And I won’t see Stunna write checks for me,” he proudly raps, adding, “They can’t put no more Weezy Baby out, that’s that Cash Money vasectomy.”
From this song, we can gather that Wayne is ready to move on with his rap career.
Recently, Drake posted on his Instagram page a photo of Wayne and Young Money president Mack Maine wearing OVO gear and posing with the OVO Sound crew. The pic is captioned “The gangs all here” with the hashtag, YMOVO and the numbers 504.
