Lil Wayne released side A of his “No Ceilings 3” mixtape and it included a nod to 45 himself!
The iconic rapper gave a special shoutout to President Donald Trump in the song, “Life Is Good.” He put out half of the third installment of his “No Ceilings” saga on Friday and absolutely murdered his version of the popular song by Future and Drake. Weezy received mixed feedback when he announced his support for the President before the past election. He picked Trump due to his tax plan and that’s exactly what he rapped about.
As we previously mentioned, Weezy took a turn rapping over the beat for Future and Drake’s song, “Life Is Good.” For his remix, he kept the same melody and cadence but changed the lyrics to make it his own.
In the original version, Drake raps,
“Workin’ on the weekend like usual
Way off in the deep end like usual
N—– swear they passed us, they doin’ too much
Haven’t done my taxes, I’m too turnt up”
Wayne’s version goes,
“Workin’ on my demons, that’s beautiful
Bae off that Reisling, she’s super loose
I’m smoking, she says pass it, she’s doing to much
Haven’t done my taxes, f—ing with Trump”
Lil’ Wayne met with Donald Trump in the days leading up to the election. He said that he was working with the President to develop the “Platinum Plan” but his public support didn’t sit well with many celebrities and fans. Wayne’s recent legal trouble made him a sitting duck for 50 Cent.
Weezy was charged with a felony stemming from an old case where his private jet got searched but 50 didn’t cut him any slack.
“? wait a minute Trump still got 63 days left, call him Wayne. get that fool on the phone. They gonna try to put you in jail for supporting trump. ? ,” 50 captioned a photo of a headline about the case.
Last week, Weezy was officially charged with a felony over a December incident where authorities searched his private jet.
According to reports, The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida charged Wayne with one count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if convicted.
The charge stems from an incident last year where federal agents stopped the private jet Lil Wayne was abord when it arrived at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.
PlayboyPuls model **Melissa Howe, a former flame of the rapper, did an interview with The Sun where she claimed that Weezy rolls around strapped constantly. She went on to explain that it was due to the fear of being targeted like Nipsey Hustle and XXXtentacion.
“When I was dating him, he’d always carry a gun on him, he’d have it next to his bed or on the cabinet and would bring it with him in his car wherever he went.”
“I remember thinking ‘What the hell?’ but he was worried he would get shot because people around him had been getting attacked and killed like Nipsey Hustle and XXXTentacion,” she said. “And he thought he would be targeted like them.”
