Calboy has recruited Lil Wayne for his latest single, “Miseducation.”
The song’s title pays homage to Lauryn Hill’s iconic debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and even samples “Ready or Not” by her ’90s group The Fugees. Calboy also references the elusive rapper on the song: “Feed your soul like Lauryn Hill and some Wyclef / Pray to the Lord, He give me guidance in the right steps.”
“Miseducation” dropped alongside a Shomi Patwary-directed clip, which tells two parallel stories of success and tragedy. Calboy plays himself in the visual, which tracks his rise to fame, contrasted with a tale of another man who falls victim to street violence. Wayne also makes a cameo in the clip.
Prior to “Miseducation,” Calboy released his Long Live the Kings project last year. On the other hand, Lil Wayne was recently granted clemency by former President Donald Trump and released the song “Ain’t Got Time” soon after.
