Collaborative albums seem to be the new fad in hip-hop and Lil Wayne seems to be enjoying this trend as he dropped a joint album with the new school rapper Rich the Kid. The rap heavyweight’s latest studio effort is called ‘Trust Fund Babies’ which was announced a week ago on Instagram.
Lil Wayne and Rich the Kid's first-ever link-up was promoted via cover art that was shared on the latter's Instagram profile. While sharing the post with his fans, the young rapper had captioned it as, “Me and @liltunechi album Trust Fund Babies dropping Oct 1st preorder link in bio.” ‘Trust Fund Babies’ is a follow-up to Lil Wayne’s 2020 project called ‘Funeral’. Rich the Kid, on the other hand, had last dropped his EP known as ‘Lucky 7’ in January 2021.
