Lil Wayne's album Funeral featured Big Sean, Lil Baby, Takeoff, Jay Rock, Adam Levine, 2 Chainz, XXXTentacion, O.T. Genasis, The-Dream and more.
It almost had two more very notable features. According to Lil Wayne's main guy Mack Maine, Young Thug and DaBaby's features got cut for different reasons.
"On this album, we had two joints that didn’t make it that were just monsters," he told Complex. "We had one with DaBaby, but we had some clearance issues. They should still be collabing soon, whether it’s on Wayne or DaBaby’s next album. But that was dope. DaBaby always gives Wayne his props in different interviews, saying how he influenced him coming up. And Wayne actually f*cks with his flow too. So that was organic. And we had one with Thug. It’s a beast. Thug wanted to do something fresh because he did his vocals in 2017, so he felt like his vocals was a little too old. Wayne does the same thing. Sometimes somebody comes with an old song and Wayne be like, “Yo, let me re-record that, or let me do a new verse.” Actually, all the artists in three years, do mature and grow. Your voice might sound different, your flow might be different. But that joint, it's still a monster.
Wayne and Thug have a checkered history, which involves Thug trolling Wayne and Thugger's possible involvement in the shooting up of Weezy's tour bus.
However, it sounds like the two are trying to work things out.
"Hopefully one day we could figure it out. I’ll figure it out, holler at Thug and his people, and figure out a way that it could still be heard. It’s a monster," Maine said of the Thug feature.
