"Unfortunately, I am being forced to remove Lil Wayne from #TheLetterO track "Loyal to the Soil". Despite my agreement with Wayne, his parent label is forcing me to remove him," Lillard wrote. Though Lillard is well-known for his rapping abilities, The Letter O is his first full-length project. The album is available for purchase on iTunes and can be streamed via Spotify.

Representatives for Lil Wayne and Universal Music Group were not immediately available for comment.
