Heading into the weekend, Wayne premiered his new song on streaming service TIDAL.
Hopefully the retirement talk is fully in the past as Lil Wayne takes to TIDAL to release a brand new song called ‘Grateful’ featuring longtime friend and rapping partner Gudda Gudda and produced by Streetrunner. By the sound of some of the lyrics, it would seem he has left Cash Money but he could just be thinking wishfully. (Hip Hop N More)

Throughout the new song, Wayne takes ample shots at both Birdman and Cash Money.
Earlier this week, Wayne publicly bashed his record label Cash Money during a live concert.
Recently, Weezy talked about rap protégé Drake’s placement in his Young Money artist roster.
“I have this cat from Canada. His name is Drake. I have a female. Her name is Nicki Minaj. She has a cool body and she’s been in a movie or two. I’m not sure if you guys have heard of her, but I think it’s gonna work with her too. I got Cory Gunz, Jae Millz. Other than that, you got me, Hoody and Gudda Gudda in a group called L.A.T. that’s Loyalty Amongst Thieves. And then you got a beautiful woman by the name of Stephanie [Acevedo]. She literally doesn’t have to sing a song because she’s so beautiful. I think the first video is gonna be called ‘Mute.’ We’re just gonna put her on screen and tell her to make a bunch of faces. She’s from Miami. Then you have my homeboy Baby E, little white boy. He is so talented. If I’m forgetting anybody, y’all know what I’m on.” (Q93)
In late August, Wayne publicly ripped Cash Money at a live concert.
