Hip-hop legend Lil Wayne released a collaborative album with Rich The Kid on October 1st, 2021. Titled Trust Fund Babies, this monumental drop follows the release of Wayne’s deluxe version of Tha Carter V as well as the release of Funeral in 2020. This collaboration is proven to be calculated as Lil Wayne has gone on record to say he loves Rich The Kid’s work. With this being said, Wayne is a rap legend and Rich The Kid is relatively new on the scene after dropping his debut full length in 2018. While these two are at different stages in their careers, their sounds and ideas combine to create an instant classic.

Rich The Kid and Lil Wayne Create Classic Sounds On Trust Fund Babies
Trust Fund Babies is 10 songs long with a runtime of about 28 minutes. The project only includes one other MC throughout. Titled “Buzzin,’” the two rappers link with YG, who is another legend on the scene. This track features ghostly keys and synths with a beat that remains fairly subdued until about a minute in. Once the drums kick in, the track transforms into another classic trap banger.
Additionally, another highlight on this project is the track “Admit It.” This song features upbeat production with both MCs soaring over optimistic keys and textures. With Rich The Kid on the hook, the two rappers create a very potent pairing. “Admit It” is definitely going to be an anthem for the foreseeable future.
Trust Fund Babies Marks The Start Of A New Era For Lil Wayne
According to Complex, Wayne doesn’t plan on putting the brakes on anytime soon. This was revealed via an interview with the president of Wayne’s label, Mack Maine of Young Money. Maine said, “Anybody that’s like a Wayne fan, they know that I Am Not A Human Being III is coming up soon. Wayne and Rich the Kid have a project together that’s coming out soon.
