Hip-hop fans will (hopefully) have an extra reason to express their gratitude this Thanksgiving — Lil Wayne has confirmed that the sequel to his critically-acclaimed 2008 mixtape No Ceilings will be released Nov. 26.

The rapper has recently been performing live freestyles over recent hits “Back to Back” and “Where Ya At” from Drake and Future, which are both intended to be part of the upcoming release. Watch clips of those songs below:
The prolific rapper has already released two projects this year — Sorry 4 the Wait 2 and the Free Weezy Album. The first No Ceilings mixtape was released during Weezy’s commercial peak (“Lollipop,” “A Milli,” and “Mrs. Officer” all hit the Hot 100 the same year). Seven years later, he’s no longer reigning the charts (though his protégé Drake is) and faces a number of extra-musical concerns.
Needless to say, fans have high hopes for this next installment — and anything served alongside stuffing almost automatically has a critical advantage.
