Lil Wayne & RIch The Kid Announce Collab Album “Trust Fund Babies”
Lil Wayne and Rich The Kid have a collaborative album called “Trust Fund Babies” dropping next week.
Lil Wayne is quite possibly the furthest thing from a Trust Fund Baby — he’s been working diligently on his music career since his age was still in the single-digits — but he’s got a new album on the way with Rich The Kid, which he’s called Trust Fund Babies.
On Thursday, the two rappers announced that they would be releasing a collaborative album in a matter of days, revealing the release date and cover artwork for Trust Fund Babies on social media.
“Me & @liltunechi album Trust Fund Babies dropping Oct 1st,” revealed Rich The Kid on Instagram.

The cover artwork shows an animated version of Lil Wayne and Rich The Kid as babies, crossing their arms, and sleeping on a bed of money. Tunechi rocks sunglasses and has all of his signature face tattoos etched on, while Rich opts for a pair of slick gold frames.
Rich’s upcoming album was previously teased on the latest episode of DJ Akademiks’ new podcast Off The Record, during which Akademiks told listeners to expect a new body of work very, very soon from the Atlanta-based rapper. It’s an added bonus that the album is a collaboration with one of the greatest rappers of all time, Lil Wayne.
