Lil Wayne Featured in ‘Need For Speed’ Mobile Update
A consolation to Lil Wayne fans patiently waiting a Cash Money resolution, EA has released the new trailer for their Need For Speed: No Limits mobile update, and sure enough, Weezy appears both in voice and character. Gamers can drive as Wayne, tearing up highways with reckless abandon.
Wayne is no stranger to the video game world, announcing in June that he was working on his own titled Sqvad Up. Wayne posted a teaser to Instagram, a still image showing himself with a skateboard, a voiceover from the rapper saying, “Welcome to Hollygrove, my town. Sqvad Up coming soon!” Little else is known about Sqvad Up, though Wayne's appearance in Need For Speed could point to a potential partnership with EA.
The mobile racing game is available on Android and iOS.
Musically, Wayne just released "Running Back" with Wale, and has reportedly been working on a number of projects. He posted a photo to Facebook earlier this month with the caption “CV. Funeral. D6. Young Money” leading some top believe that he has multiple drops planned for the year. What's more, Mack Maine said shortly after that Wayne has an album titled Velvet that they are eager to release.
With CV looking like it's still on ice it seems Wayne is getting busy elsewhere. Peep the Need For Speed: No Limits trailer up top, Wayne giving new meaning to lyrics like, "Hop in that thin and murk off, swerve off."
