Lil Wayne drops new single featuring Young Thug, "Bless"

Lil Wayne and Young Thug appear to have put their differences aside.

On Friday, the two rappers, who have somewhat of a chequered history, released their first single together in a decade, "Bless."

Wayne and Thug last worked together on 2014's "Take Kare," which was released as the lead single from Thug, Birdman, and Rich Homie Quan's "Rich Gang 2" album.

Produced by Wheezy, Wayne is expected to perform "Bless" at WrestleMania XL this weekend, according to SEScoops.

Tensions between Wayne and Big Slime first arose back in late 2014 when Thug announced his plans to call an upcoming mixtape "Carter 6."

"Carter VI to X, he did one to five, I'm gonna do six to 10," Thug said.

Though Thug's tape was eventually named "Barter 6," his initial plans appeared to rub Weezy, who at the time was embroiled in a legal dispute with Birdman and Cash Money Records over the release of his fifth studio album, "Carter V," the wrong way.

After Thug had dropped the artwork for "Barter 6" in 2015, Weezy told his fans at a concert in Mississippi not to listen to the project.

"I want y’all to do me a favor and stop listening to songs of [rappers] that pose naked on they motherfucking album cover," he said.

Later in 2015, Thug and Birdman were then named as co-conspirators in an incident which saw Wayne's tour bus shot up in Atlanta. Neither was convicted, but the shooting has since been referenced in the ongoing RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) case against Thug.
