Teasers/previews

DJ Khaled has shared several teasers on his Instagram account. In the first, Khaled announced the upcoming mixtape and said, “They always try to put a ceiling on our greatness, so we took the fuckin’ ceiling off,” in the beginning of the clip. After playing back a few bars of the track from the studio, Khaled said, "'No Ceilings 3', Lil Wayne, that tape coming soon. Last time me and Lil Wayne connected on a mixtape, it was called 'Suffix'. I got the call. He said, 'Part three, No Ceilings'." Watch the teaser on Instagram here or via the Twitter post below.



 

In the following teaser, Khaled teased a snippet of the Drake collab. While waving a lighter, the producer said, "'No Ceilings 3'; there’s a record on there with Lil Wayne and Drake. This shit is serious."

The Mack Maine-produced single, which has no confirmed title as of yet, features Wayne and Drake's vocals. Over jazzy synth and a strong hip-hop beat, Drake spits lines in a fierce flow. “The blues is now kickin’ in and dinner is three Michelin. I don’t eat red meat but still got beef sizzlin’. Know that I need discipline. I keep singing for all these hoes. They keep listening,” he raps at the beginning of the track.

Wayne's vocals can be heard further in the clip, with lyrics like, "Everyone got their glass out, let’s drink to Weezy. Every (N-word) that stare me down just came to see me."

Move on to another teaser and Khaled shared a gif of the mixtape's cover art with three featured pics. Each artwork is designed with a graffiti tagging theme in red and black. Check out the teaser below.



 

The upcoming Wayne-Drake collab will see the rappers coming together for a project in three years, following their joint appearance on Nicki Minaj’s 2017 track 'No Frauds'. Both Wayne and Drake have spoken about reuniting before on Wayne's radio show in spring. In one episode, Wayne said, “Something about me and Drizzy’s songs that we do together; we are both perfectionists. So, it’s not like you send me a joint [and] I’m going to throw a verse on there. We got a standard we got to live up to; we got a track record and a legacy we gotta always protect."
