At the beginning of 2017, Mack Maine announced a new album from Lil Wayne titled Velvet. That was a pre-C5 era when Young Money was trying to get the album out for the world to hear. Velvet was announced in passing as Mack Maine said, "Wayne also has a dope project called Velvet. We want to get that out." The album has never seen the light of day and while it may materialize in the future, Weezy looks to have moved on to bigger things. Carter V is finally out and as he moves into his next chapter, Velvet may need to take a backseat. Especially considering ten tracks that are reportedly from those recording sessions have leaked online.

According to Complex, some of Wayne's older music surfaced online from the Velvet Sessions, which include a feature from his daughter Reginae Carter. The publication points out that the majority of the tracks originate from the correct era while a few others were never intended for Velvet. Many of the links have been taken down and, for obvious reasons, we can't post them here. They are out there though... you'll just have to work to find them.

Lil Wayne has been subject to leaks for much of his career. He was recently confirmed as a guest on Mike WiLL Made-It's Creed II soundtrack, which will also include appearances by YG, Rick Ross, Kodak Black, and a bunch of others.
