Early Wednesday evening, Lil Wayne dropped four new tracks on his YouTube page. Most notable among these is a freestyle over Playboi Carti's hit "Magnolia."

You can hear that, along with the three other songs, below. They are "Loyalty," featuring Gudda Gudda and HoodyBaby and produced by ChefBoy'RT@; "Mula Gang" featuring Jay Jones, HoodyBaby, and Euro and produced by R!O, Kamo, and Kaliphat; and "Fireworks" featuring Young Jeezy and produced by Mike Will Made-It

The "Magnolia" freestyle finds Wayne in a reflective mood, looking back on his arrest and incarceration and even paying homage to long-departed New Orleans rap legend Soulja Slim. He also hints (again) at a potential release for his new album, and mentions his recently announced alignment with Roc Nation. "Wait for Carter V to drop," he rhymes at the end of the track. "It's the Roc." 

Wayne put out an Instagram message explaining that he was giving out the tracks for free to thank his fans.

"Im STILL trying to fight for my Independence but today Im saying Fuk it and giving all my fans some new music!" he wrote. "Thanks for being there and patiently waiting while I endure this fight."
