Lil Wayne and Rich The Kid dropped a project together, called Trust Fund Babies. It came out today (October 1). 

For the 10-track tape, it’s mostly Wayne and Rich The Kid. The song “Buzzin’” it features YG. 

As reported on Hot New Hip Hop, Weezy and Rich The Kid spoke with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1. They talked about why they dropped a collab album together. Wayne said, 

“First of all, Rich is like my little bro from day one, me and Rich had been rockin’ for years, and we always said we were going to do something. We might do a song here and there, but we locked it in, got in there, and said we put our mindset and did it. As far as, as much as I gave on that, I do that every time I do anything.”

Then Rich spoke on how Weezy F. Baby inspired him over the years. He said, “Even my inspiration from when I first started, even before I was [making] music, I remember parts of my life where his mixtapes just got me through life. Like where I didn’t know what I was doing, but his mixtapes and his music inspired me to go out there, hustle, and find a way to make it happen.” Rich went on to say, 

“It’s always about elevating to the next level. Watching Tune and how he built his empire. I’m just learning from him. I’m just trying to elevate and learn more, and learn more, and get better at it.”
