Lil Wayne’s recording career appears to be in some sort of contract purgatory right now, what with the release of the Tidal-exclusive album FWA and then Cash Money, his old label, suing Tidal.

One song we can hear is “Pour Up,” which, as Billboard reports, will appear on DJ Raj Smoove’s forthcoming The Greatest DJ In The World mixtape.
