Let Free Weezy ring.

Just in time for the holiday weekend, Lil Wayne dropped his new mixtape “FWA” — previously known as “Free Weezy Album” — on Jay Z’s troubled music streaming service Tidal at midnight Saturday.

The 15-song mixtape comes almost five months to the day the New Orleans rapper first teased it on Twitter.

Lil Wayne has released two mixtapes so far this year.

“The Free Weezy Album…komin soon#FWA,” he tweeted in February.

Weezy announced last month that he became one of several celeb co-owners of Tidal, the paid streaming service owned by Jay Z that has struggled to find masses of paying subscribers.

Lil Wayne tweeted in February this would be a “Free album,” but through Tidal, it’s technically only free to users who sign up for a month-long trial.

Weezy released another mixtape, “Sorry 4 the Wait 2,” in January. The release of his next studio album, “Tha Carter 5,” has been tied up thanks to legal troubles with Cash Money, his former label.

The 15-song mixtape was initially titled "Free Weezy Album" when Lil Wayne first mentioned it.
