The rapper dropped the tracks yesterday evening ahead of his SNL performance

Rapper Lil Wayne shared three new tracks hours before he performed with Halsey and Swizz Beatz on Saturday Night Live.

The tracks include an updated version of ‘What About Me’ from his latest album, ‘Tha Carter V’ with a new added verse from Post Malone. He also shared ‘Hasta La Vista’ and ‘In This House’ – a collaboration with Gucci Mane.

The three songs are bonus tracks to Tha Carter V, but have not yet been added to the album on streaming services.

Following this, the rapper appeared on Saturday Night Live and performed first with Halsey on ‘Can’t Be Broken’ and then later with Swizz Beatz on ‘Uproar’. You can watch both performances here:

Shortly before the show began, Halsey revealed that she a tattoo on her arm that Wayne had designed.

Recently, Wayne has shone light on a number of factors concerning his new album, Tha Carter V, in a revealing new interview.

Speaking to journalist Elliott Wilson for the “CRWN” interview series earlier this week, the American rapper said that he “didn’t know who XXXTentacion was” until he heard the late rapper’s feature on his song, ‘Don’t Cry’.

Wayne said that XXXTentacion’s inclusion on the album was fellow rapper Mack Maine’s idea, and that he only realised who he was after wrapping up the song.

Tha Carter V, Wayne’s twelfth studio album, was in legal limbo since 2015 but was finally released in September. Among other topics, Wayne also revealed why Drake’s appearance on the record was scrapped.
