Trust Fund Babies Mixtape will be available on CD in indie retailers Nov 26th
Lil Wayne and Rich The Kid have unveiled the music video for “Trust Fund.” It stands out as the latest single from their collaborative mixtape, Trust Fund Babies, out now via Young Money Records/Republic Records.
In the visual directed by Mooch [Iann Dior, Trippie Redd], Wayne and Rich The Kid take over a skate park. As halfpipe shredding moves abound, they trade head-turning and hypnotic bars with the airtight chemistry of lifelong friends. The clip jumps between footage of them superimposed on mini-bodies and video game avatars as the frenetic action never stops.
Trust Fund Babies will receive a limited physical CD release at independent record stores nationwide as part of Record Store Day 2021 on Black Friday, November 26th.
Meanwhile, Wayne continues to hold down the game. This fall, he released Tha Carter IV (Complete Edition) on streaming platforms in celebration of the critically acclaimed album’s 10th anniversary. Plus, he has shared a series of captivating visualizers for classic tracks, including “She Will” [feat. Drake], “Blunt Blowin,” “President Carter,” and “Nightmares of the Bottom.” Not to mention, he broke TikTok with his very first post for “Feelin’ Like Tunechi.”
He recently unveiled Tha Carter Singles Collection 7” vinyl box set, featuring 19 of Wayne’s biggest “Tha Carter” series hits on 45 for the first time ever. To commemorate the launch, Wayne dropped the unreleased Tha Carter III era track “Ya Dig” on streaming services via Young Money Records/Republic Records/UMe. The box set comes complete with liner notes and a booklet of rare photos.
Wayne also launched the specialty Tha Carter IV Topps trading cards – making him the first rapper to have his own trading card collection.
Occupying rarified air, he now has the third most Billboard Hot 100 hits of all time with 175 entries, as reported by Forbes. Lighting up one banger after another, he joined Drake for “You Only Live Twice” with Rick Ross from the biggest-selling blockbuster album of the year, Certified Lover Boy, and appeared on “The Ritual” with Conway The Machine from AZ’s critically acclaimed Doe or Die II.
