Lil Wayne’s “Moment”: Hear His New ‘Rise Of An Empire’ Track

Carl Williott | March 7, 2014 8:25 am

After hearing his verse on the syrupy “Senile,” we now get Lil Wayne‘s solo track off the forthcoming Young Money compilation Rise Of An Empire (out March 11). “Moment” is equally slurry, with Weezy managing his manic energy over an atmospheric beat (that murky intro sounds an awful lot like the opening to Kendrick Lamar‘s “Swimming Pools (Drank)”).

The song is a slow burn, as his verses start quiet and gradually gain steam. All in all, a good holdover while we wait for him to finish Tha Carter V. Give it a listen below.
