Here's the cove to 2 Chainz's new album with Lil Wayne, Collegrove.



Just in time for you Tampa Bay area concert goers, Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar released new music last night.

Lil Wayne, who will be headlining Saturday's Wild Splash at Clearwater's Coachman Park, teased fans Thursday afternoon by premiering the single, Gotta Lotta, from his upcoming collaboration with 2 Chainz, Collegrove

Chainz's 13-track album features Weezy on all but five of the songs. The title Collegrove is a mashup of the rappers' neighborhoods College Park (Atlanta for 2 Chainz) and Hollygrove (New Orleans for Lil Wayne). The cover is also a blending of the two men with a the photo depicting Chainz with his eyes close and Wayne's famous tattoos all over his face. 

It's now available on iTunes for $9.99 and here for streaming.

Kanye West announced the Collegrove project would drop today in the middle of a Twitter feud with Deadmau5. (Never change, Yeezy.)

Kendrick Lamar -- headliner at this weekend's Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival -- also released an eight song project in the dead of night called Untitled Unmastered featuring unreleased tracks from the critically acclaimed, Grammy-winning album To Pimp A Butterfly

BBC News reports that Lebron James was actually the impetus for the project when he urged Lamar's manager to share the material via Twitter following the rapper's 2016 Grammy performance. 

Untitled Unmastered is available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play. 

And now you know which albums to listen to on your way to the show. 

You're welcome.
