Rapper Lil Wayne has released his new mixtape, “Free Weezy Album” or “FWA,” exclusively on Jay Z-owned streaming service Tidal.

The mixtape, which contains 15 new tracks, includes guest contributions from Young Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa, among others. Lead single “Glory” premiered on Tidal in June to celebrate Weezy’s announcement that he joined Tidal as a co-owner.

Lil Wayne’s musical output has been hampered by a scuffle with his label, Cash Money Records. The rapper alleges that his label owes him money, which has delayed his production. As such, he dubbed his January mixtape “Sorry 4 the Wait.”

“FWA” makes good on Tidal’s promise of exclusive content for its users. The streaming service has encountered a few road bumps since debuting to such celebrity fanfare at the end of March. Most recently, the service lost another CEO.
