NLE Choppa X Lil Wayne 'Ain't Gonna Answer,' Brimming with Classic Cash Money Allusions

NLE Choppa collaborates with Lil Wayne on their fresh single and music video, "Ain't Gonna Answer," masterfully blending homage to Weezy, Cash Money, the Hot Boys, "Back That Azz Up," and beyond.

The track ingeniously incorporates the iconic "What we doing? Makin' money/What they doing? Hatin' on us" chorus from Wayne and Baby's "Stuntin' Like My Daddy," while also nodding to the lesser-known Tunechi gem, "Private Dancer." The Zaeim-helmed visuals channel Carter II vibes with a Hollygrove sign and subtle nods to the "Fireman" video. Choppa even invoked Tha Carter III and IV's album art in some promotional material on Instagram earlier this week.

"Ain't Gonna Answer" joins the ranks of NLE Choppa's recent releases like "Champions," "Mo Upfront," and "23," all slated for his forthcoming April 14 album, Cottonwood 2. The project features an impressive roster of guest artists, including Pooh Shiesty, Rod Wave, and DaBaby, marking Choppa's first full-length release since January 2022's Me vs. Me. Cottonwood 2 will serve as the official sequel to his debut album, Top Shotta.
