New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Lil Wayne continues his fire and fury with a new single called "Vizine." The track stems from lifestyle brand Ethika Inc's upcoming RGB mixtape, and finds the GOAT contender living up to his reputation; it would appear that Wayne's lyricism has only sharpened with age, and the punchlines that emerge from his mouth continue to defy expectations. If there's ever been a rapper that can make you stop and marvel at the sheer cleverness of it all, it's Weezy. Such is his way, and "Vizine" is no exception.
The bounce-driven track allows Tunechi to flow about everything from Sam Rothstein to pill popping. He even takes a possible jab at former mentor Birdman, who was recently hit with a $12 million foreclosure.
"It's a cold world, I got an ice grill," he raps. "No one man should have all that power, if he can't afford to pay the light bill."
Elsewhere on the 4-minute track, Weezy avoids any pity ("I never feel like poor me / I'd rather feel like the old me") and offers multi-syllable rhymes ("Never been monogamous / Never been monotonous / Never been anonymous").
"Vizine" is off the second installment of Ethika's RGB Mixtape series. It follows the first installment, which dropped in February 2017 with appearances by Meek Mill, Lil Durk, and 21 Savage, among others. Rich the Kid and Lil Skies' "Creepin" is also slated to appear on the project.
Wayne is coming off last year's Dedication 6 and January's D6: Reloaded. His Carter V album remains in limbo due to his Cash Money lawsuit, but Birdman
recently guaranteed it would be out this year during an exclusive interview with Rap-Up.
