Today is a nostalgic day for many as Lil Wayne has officially dropped his 2009 mixtape, No Ceilings, on streaming services.

Weezy's 11-year-old effort began trending on social media on Friday (Aug. 28) after people saw that the release was finally available on digital streaming services as of midnight this morning. When it dropped in 2009, it was able to be downloaded via DatPiff. Nonetheless, despite the exciting moment and folks taking virtual strolls down memory lane, many people are pointing out that the new release is missing nearly a dozen songs from the original tracklist.

"No Run This Town, Ice Cream Paint Job, or Sweet Dreams (among others) man I don't know if I want this," one Twitter user wrote. "Mfs are gonna be like "No Ceilings overrated" cuz they're hearing a version without 3 of the top 5-6 tracks."

Another said, "No ceilings without Ice Cream, Watch My Shoes, DOA, or Run This Town. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂."

Lil Wayne's No Ceilings mixtape consisted of numerous remakes of pre-existing hit records such as "Ice Cream Paint Job" by Dorrough Music, Lady Gaga's "Poker Face," Jay-Z and Rihanna's "Run This Town" and "D.O.A." by Jay-Z. Neither of the four aforementioned tracks appear on the new streaming release of the tape, likely due to clearance issues. Meanwhile, some of the original songs have been renamed on the newly released version like "Throw It in the Bag" and "Banned From T.V."

It's also worth noting that the cover art is different. The original tape features five varying images photoshopped together of Lil Wayne performing. On the new cover, there are three forward-facing photos and one side profile of Wayne, all doing different poses.

The 12-song rerelease does, however, feature Wayne's song dedicated to NBA player Kobe Bryant, who was killed in a helicopter crash back in January. The track, titled after the basketball legend, was performed by Weezy F. Baby at the 2020 BET Awards in June.
