While Lil Wayne still waits to declare independence from Cash Money Records, the rapper has dropped a Fourth of July gift for fans: His long-awaited Free Weezy Album, now dubbed simply FWA. The mixtape comes a month after the rapper first announced that he was joining Jay Z's streaming venture Tidal as a co-owner; FWA is streaming exclusively on Tidal. The opening song on FWA is the relentless "Glory," which Yeezy debuted on the streaming service in June after announcing his ownership stake. Lil Wayne Breaks Silence on Cash Money Lawsuit The 15-track FWA features appearances by Young Jeezy ("White Girl"), Wiz Khalifa ("Feeling Right"), Young Money associate Cory Gunz, Jim "CAPO" Jones and Black Uhuru's Junior Reid ("Murda"), singer/songwriter Jake Troth ("My Heart Races On"), "Bitch Better Have My Money" writer Bibi Bourelly ("Without You") and others. "I honestly gotta say that this #FWA album is my best work yet! I won't let u down as a fan," Weezy tweeted in April. "Dis sh!t is a beast! Ok let me get bak 2da booth." FWA arrives six months after Weezy's previous mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait 2, which itself was a consolatory release for fans anxiously waiting for the rapper's indefinitely postponed Tha Carter V. The delayed fifth installment of Tha Carter series is just one of the gripes Lil Wayne has leveled against his record label Cash Money and mentor Bryan "Birdman" Williams in 2015. In February, Weezy sued Cash Money for $51 million, alleging that Birdman had withheld money owed to the rapper. As Lil Wayne continued to fight with Cash Money over his owed money and the release of Tha Carter V, the rapper inked a deal with Tidal to share his FWA as well as potentially perform an exclusive show for the streaming service, a Tidal rep told Rolling Stone in June. While the "Glory" artwork dropped with a Young Money logo on the single's cover, the FWA album art bears no mention of Cash Money or Young Money. Last December, Lil Wayne tweeted "I want off this label" after Cash Money refused to release his Tha Carter V. "I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain't that easy," Weezy wrote. "I am a prisoner and so is my creativity. Again, I am truly sorry and I don't blame ya if ya fed up with waiting for me and this album." In his lawsuit against Cash Money, the rapper contended that the label actually withheld two studio albums. Weezy also revealed to Rolling Stone that he is no longer on speaking terms with Birdman. Inspired by his fight for creative freedom, Lil Wayne told Rolling Stone of FWA, "I'm working on it every day, man. I guarantee it's going to be something dope. If you don't want a musician being creative, don't get The Free Weezy Album." #FWA #TIDAL http://t.co/RMVfmBJQ6M pic.twitter.com/ghGrfgJtOb — Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) July 4, 2015 Related Lil Wayne Not Dropping Lawsuit Against Cash Money Lil Wayne Goes After Ref at Charity Basketball Game Lil Wayne Joins Tidal as Owner, Drops New Song

Kendrick Lamar - Swimming Pools (Drank) songtext

[Hook]
Pour up, drank, head shot, drank
Sit down, drank, stand up, drank
Pass out, drank, wake up, drank
Faded, drank, faded, drank

[Verse 1]
Now I done grew up
Round some people living their life in bottles
Granddaddy had the golden flask
Back stroke every day in Chicago
Some people like the way it feels
Some people wanna kill their sorrows
Some people wanna fit in with the popular
That was my problem
I was in the dark room
Loud tunes, looking to make a vow soon
That I'ma get fucked up, fillin' up my cup
I see the crowd mood
Changing by the minute and the record on repeat
Took a sip, then another sip, then somebody said to me:

[Chorus]
Nigga why you babysittin' only 2 or 3 shots?
I'ma show you how to turn it up a notch
First you get a swimming pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
I wave a few bottles, then I watch em all flock
All the girls wanna play Baywatch
I got a swimming pool full of liquor and they dive in it
Pool full of liquor I'ma dive in it

[Hook]
Pour up, drank, head shot, drank
Sit down, drank, stand up, drank
Pass out, drank, wake up, drank
Faded, drank, faded, drank

[Verse 2]
Okay, now open your mind up and listen to me, Kendrick
I'm your conscience, if you do not hear me
Then you will be history, Kendrick
I know that you're nauseous right now
And I'm hopin' to lead you to victory, Kendrick
If I take another one down
I'ma drown in some poison abusin' my limit
I think that I'm feelin' the vibe
I see the love in her eyes, I see the feelin'
The freedom is granted as soon as the damage of vodka arrive
This how you capitalize
This is parental advice
Then apparently, I'm over influenced by what you are doin'
I thought I was doin' the most then someone said to me

[Chorus]
Nigga why you babysittin' only 2 or 3 shots?
I'ma show you how to turn it up a notch
First you get a swimming pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
I wave a few bottles, then I watch em all flock
All the girls wanna play Baywatch
I got a swimming pool full of liquor and they dive in it
Pool full of liquor I'ma dive in it

[Hook]
Pour up, drank, head shot, drank
Sit down, drank, stand up, drank
Pass out, drank, wake up, drank
Faded, drank, faded, drank

[Bridge]
I ride, you ride, bang
One chopper, one hundred shots, bang
Hop out. Do you; bang?
Two chopper, two hundred shots, bang
I ride, you ride, bang
One chopper, one hundred shots, bang
Hop out, do you, bang
Two chopper, two hundred shots, bang

[Chorus]
Nigga why you babysittin' only 2 or 3 shots?
I'ma show you how to turn it up a notch
First you get a swimming pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
Pool full of liquor, then you dive in it
I wave a few bottles, then I watch em all flock
All the girls wanna play Baywatch
I got a swimming pool full of liquor and they dive in it
Pool full of liquor I'ma dive in it

[Hook]
Pour up, drank, head shot, drank
Sit down, drank, stand up, drank
Pass out, drank, wake up, drank
Faded, drank, faded, drank
