Video After The Jump
Lil Wayne was a recent guest on The Nine Club with Chris Roberts. Near the end of the hour-long interview the Young Money Records CEO, made a surprise announcement about a new musical project.
"Make sure they know that The Funeral coming soon," Wayne said. "I don't have a release date, but I have a whole bunch of good news coming soon."
Wayne was reportedly close to settling his $51 million breach-of-contract lawsuit with Cash Money Records until he big upped Roc-A-Fella Records during a recent concert.
The shout out offended Birdman, who cut off negotiations. It's unclear if talks are moving forward again or if Wayne is working on a different avenue to get his music out.
"If you are a Wayne fan ... I know we've been going through a lot of tough times right now. But if you are a Wayne fan we're about to hold our heads high real soon," he assured.
