Lil Uzi Vert Names Mike Jones Among Top 5 Most Influential Rappers

Mike Jones gets his flowers from Lil Uzi Vert.

It’s always interesting when rappers reveal who the most influential voices were leading up to their success. Lil Uzi Vert revealed his influences while being interviewed on The Fat Joe Show on Instagram Live last Thursday night (Feb. 11). Uzi made the appearance, of course, sporting his $24 million diamond forehead piercing. During the interview, he revealed the top five artists that helped make him the rapper he is today. The first rapper he mentioned was Mike Jones.

“The first rapper that I ever learned lyric for lyric was Mike Jones. That’s the first rapper I learned everything lyric for lyric, and I wanted to be like him. I had a Boost Mobile and my mom would give me $15 and I’d get phone cards and shit and I would spend all my money calling Mike Jones’ number ’cause I wanted to talk to him,” he said.

He even remembered the Houston rapper’s phone number and shared it with fans. “I remember the number by heart. Right now, to this day: 281-330-8004. I felt that star power from him. He had that star power.”

As he moved through his list of influences, he mentioned Lil Wayne, whose style he admitted he actually tried to emulate. “I wanted to be Lil Wayne. When I was younger, girls would say I looked like Lil Wayne, so I would run with that. And I would wear the fedoras, and I would wear the tight Polo tees with the skinnies, and wear the Vans and sh*t,” he added. He also said that he ordered a fake piercing off of Amazon, which had a magnet. He wore the fake piercing below his lip every day so that he could feel more like Lil Wayne.

He also praised his aunt Remy Ma, for some of his success. “I got a gangsta aunt and my aunt definitely a little different. She one of them girls from the hood that was the DMX fan and the Remy Ma fan,” he said.

Another rapper that had a major influence on him was Kurupt, who Vert said had that “East Coast mentality but that West Coast swag. He also mentioned Young Thug, who he described as a “mythical creature.”

“This was later in my life. So, I used to listen to I Came From Nothing, I Came From Nothing 2. I used to watch on YouTube when Young Thug used to perform at the little like skating rink shits. The reason that he was such an influence to me was because he was almost like a mythical creature back then,” he said.

He continued on to say that he always knew that Young Thug would be successful. “I actually knew before the public. Not even before the public. I’m not from Atlanta, so everybody out there knew about that man before me. Atlanta and around Atlanta, Georgia or whatever. But, just where I was from, I felt like I was the first person in the fu**in’ world that was listening to him. I felt like that.”

Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne Working On Joint Album Coming 2021

Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne got a joint project on the way.

Just days after finding out that Jim Jones apparently wanted to put hands on Lil Wayne, there is no word that another Dipset top dog has some new material on the way with Tunechi. Un Kasa of the Dipset clan was chatting with Mikey T, The Movie Star on the Report Card Radio, when he made the big reveal that Juelz Santana and Weezy are cooking up.

“They got a whole new album now,” said Un Kasa. “I ain’t hear none of it. I might have heard some snippets before ‘Elz got incarcerated, but they got a whole new album that they supposed to put out together.”

This is not the first time that Lil Wayne and Santana are collaborating. The two have previously worked on official releases such as “Black Republicans,” “Hot Sh_t,” “Rewind,” “Bad Side,” “Nothing On Me,” “Bloody Mary,” and a host of other tracks. The two were also working on a joint project titled I Can’t Feel My Face, which has yet to see the light of day.

According to Un Kasa, he was there for the creation of that project more than a decade ago.

“Him and ‘Elz might have did a few songs together in the same studio but pretty much that whole project was coming through emails,” he mentioned. “Elz would do a verse and a hook, send it to Wayne. No longer than 25 minutes to a half an hour, Wayne would have that sh_t sent back in an email.”

A new version of Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne's "I Can't Feel My Face" album is still in the works ??https://t.co/XmENzMhSxm pic.twitter.com/NPi2QfvbNv

— Lil Wayne HQ (@lilwaynehq_2) February 9, 2021

There are still questions surrounding just why I Can’t Feel My Face was never released. Kana explains that there were no signs that the rappers themselves had anything to do with it being shelved. “I think the reason that album didn’t go–it wasn’t because of the artists or Wayne or ‘Elz,” he explained. “I don’t think they could figure out the business of it.”

While speaking with Joe Budden a few days ago, Jim Jones spoke about Wayne seemingly jacking his hook on their track “Weather Man,” which he then reworked for a verse on Fat Joe’s “Make It Rain.” Jones revealed that it was Santana who ensured that there was no actual beef between him and Wayne.

It’s definitely a breath of fresh air to know that Santana, who was released from prison last year, has some material on the way. Are you excited for what seems to be a reworked effort of the long await I Can’t Feel My Face?

Bobby Shmurda Fans React On Twitter To Trump Not Giving Him A Pardon

Bobby Shmurda is trending amid his name, failing to make the grand clemency list from the White House.

As his last act in office, Trump opted to grant pardons to a list of 140 people, including some rappers who have either been serving a prison sentence or were about to. While some people who have chimed in on the historical event now firmly believe that they have deduced how Lil Wayne was rewarded for advocating for Trump before the presidential election, they cannot fathom why Bobby Shmurda was not considered for the ultimate get out of jail free card.

The GSL rapper has been serving a 7-year prison sentence for drug and gun-related charges and is slated to be released on February 23. For his fans, Shmurda cannot be released too soon, and they had strong hopes for the rapper to join the other pardoned artists like Kodak Black, Steve Bannon, and more get an early release of a full pardon to avoid serving time in prison.

As Twitter reacts to Bobby Shmurda’s absence from the extensive list, fans can’t help but question why he didn’t make the cut. Clemency was also not granted to Suge Knight, C-Murder, Tay-K, YNW Melly, and others. As for Bobby, he was denied parole just last year, while his associate and fellow GSL rapper Rowdy Rebel was approved and consequently released in 2020. At the top of the year, amid the parole board rejecting the early release request, it was revealed that Bobby Shmurda would b granted a conditional release in February.

The hilarious Twitter threads surrounding the rapper seemingly getting snubbed is replete with memes depicting a bemused, disheartened, and even an irate Bobby Shmurda. One fan angrily wrote, “I really dgaf about trump pardoning wayne or kodak….who gives af where is bobby shmurda.” Thankfully, the rapper will be out soon regardless.

Lil Wayne & Kodak Black Pardoned By President Trump In Last-Minute Spree

Lil Wayne and Kodak Black can breathe a sigh of relief today after Trump granted them clemency.

Outgoing President Donald Trump has pardoned over 150 persons and commutations, sources within the President’s administration has revealed in the early morning of his last day in office. Trump spends his final full day in office- January 19, 2021, finalizing his list of pardons, and it turns out that rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black made the list.

According to three CNN news sources, the batch of clemency actions includes white-collar criminals, high-profile rappers, and others but does not include the President, who has been reported as suggesting that he would seek to pardon himself and his children before leaving office. It seems that did not happen after his lawyers advised him against it.

“President Trump granted a full pardon to Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., also known as ‘Lil Wayne,’” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement to the press. “Mr. Carter pled guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, owing to a conviction over 10 years ago. Brett Berish of Sovereign Brands, who supports a pardon for Mr. Carter, describes him as ‘trustworthy, kind-hearted and generous.’”

“Mr. Carter has exhibited this generosity through commitment to a variety of charities, including donations to research hospitals and a host of foodbanks. Deion Sanders, who also wrote in support of this pardon, calls Mr. Wayne ‘a provider for his family, a friend to many, a man of faith, a natural giver to the less fortunate, a waymaker, [and] a game changer.’”

Lil Wayne was a staunch Trump supporter and ally during his election campaign last year, so it comes as no surprise that he was pardoned by the outgoing President. The full list of names was released to the press at approximately 1 AM on the morning of the inauguration. Lil Wayne was facing a gun charge – possession of firearm during a 2019 search of his jet. The rapper’s jet was searched after landing at the Miami airport, where authorities found what Wayne said was a father’s day gift- a gold plated gun as well as marijuana in his bag.

Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done. ?? pic.twitter.com/Q9c5k1yMWf

— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) October 29, 2020

Weezy remains a controversial personality in hip hop and received heavy backlash, especially from the black community after meeting with Trump and declaring his support for the then President and encouraging African Americans- a key demographic in the contentious 2020 election, to vote for Trump.

Controversial Florida rapper Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was also pardoned after he took to his social media accounts to make an appeal to Trump for a pardon in exchange for donating millions of dollars to charity last year.

“Kodak Black is a prominent artist and community leader,” McEnany said in the statement. “He has served nearly half of his sentence. Before his conviction and after reaching success as a recording artist, Kodak Black became deeply involved in numerous philanthropic efforts. In fact, he has committed to supporting a variety of charitable efforts, such as providing educational resources to students and families of fallen law enforcement officers and the underprivileged. In addition to these efforts, he has paid for the notebooks of school children, provided funding and supplies to daycare centers, provided food for the hungry, and annually provides for underprivileged children during Christmas. Most recently while still incarcerated, Kodak Black donated $50,000 to David Portnoy’s Barstool Fund, which provides funds to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Kodak Black’s only request was that his donation go toward restaurants in his hometown.”

According to one source, the pardon does not come at zero cost as the President is expecting to collect later on his favor. “Everything is a transaction. He likes pardons because it is unilateral. And he likes doing favors for people he thinks will owe him.”

Among the people who received a pardon from Donald Trump include Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry O” Harrison, who got his sentence commuted after Snoop Dogg and his allies successfully lobbied the Trump administration.

Lil Wayne Chided By Fans After Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Twitter

Martin Luther King Jr. day feels different this year.

After a summer of nationwide Black Lives Matter protests following several murders of Black Americans at the hand of police, as well as the recent attempted coup in Washington D.C. involving white supremacist groups, MLK’s message of Black liberation is especially significant. Many celebrities have taken to social media to remember and honor the Civil Rights leader, including Lil Wayne, who took the time to acknowledge what King’s legacy has meant for his personal success. “Because he had a dream I am able to live out my dreams,” Wayne wrote.

Weezy went on to express his gratitude for King’s work, adding, “I am forever mindful. Forever grateful. Because he had a dream I’ll never stop dreaming and dreams are forever. King. Forever.” While the words seemed plenty meaningful, followers were quick to point out that the sentiment is not exactly in line with his previous endorsement of Donald Trump, a president who has only stoked the racial divide in this country during his one term and empowered white supremacists to try to overthrow the government. However, many fans argued that Wayne only supported Trump to avoid prison time, considering the one-term president is expected to pardon Weezy, among others, during his final days in office.

While it may be true that Lil Wayne only supported Trump to keep his freedom, many followers continued to argue that his MLK post was inauthentic after having posted selfies with such a divisive figure.

Because he had a dream I am able to live out my dreams. I am forever mindful. Forever grateful. Because he had a dream I’ll never stop dreaming and dreams are forever. King. Forever.

— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) January 18, 2021

“Please keep Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s glorious name out of your mouth AND your typing thumbs,” wrote one Twitter user. “If Dr. King was here today, he would be greatly disappointed in your actions.” Dr. King would have been 92 years old this month if he were still alive.

Please keep Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s glorious name out of your mouth AND your typing thumbs. If Dr. King was here today, he would be greatly disappointed in your actions. He probably wouldn't chew you out because of grace and love, but YOU represent a NIGHTMARE, not a DREAM. https://t.co/mYjI8vUJcQ

Nicki Minaj Hit With $200 Million Lawsuit Over “Rich Sex” With Lil Wayne

The Bronx rapper is being sued over the 2018 hit “Rich Sex” with Lil Wayne after one of Nicki Minaj’s longtime friends is bringing a lawsuit over the song.

The plaintiff Brinx Billions, a New York rapper name Jawara Headley, who has been a close friend of Nicki Minaj for many years, is now suing the superstar rapper for $200 million in damages for allegedly stealing his song “Rich Sex”, and not giving proper credit, according to TMZ.

Brinx claims that he played the song for Nicki and told her it would be a “smash hit.” The song was eventually featured on her 2018 album ‘Queen’ and also featured vocals from Brinx during the intro and outro of the song.

In the song, Brinx can be heard “full blown, run rich, Brinx,” at the beginning of the song. He now claims that he is the sole author/ creator/ composer/ writer/ producer of “Rich Sex” which also features bars from Lil Wayne. However, He says he isn’t credited as the sole author/creator. He also says that his friend Nicki stole some of his lyrics- “it ain’t such a thing as broke and handsome,” being one example. Interestingly enough, Jawara Headley is listed and credited as a writer on the song per ASCAP.

The lawsuit also names Universal Music Group, Lil Wayne’s Young Money, and Cash Money as parties to the claim and wants $200million in damages. Recently, news broke that Lil Wayne sold his masters to Universal Music Group for $100million, and it might also include Nicki’s masters, which would have ‘Rich Sex’ as part of the catalog, hence making Universal Music Group a party to the action.

Brinx, on the other hand, is more than a friend to Nicki. He is reportedly signed to Young Money Entertainment and is Nicki’s second official artist. The rapper who has 46k followers claims on his social media to not be a rapper but “I’m who most rappers claim 2 B.” He has been in the rap game since 2006 but hasn’t received the mainstream success his counterpart Nicki has.

Meanwhile, the Barbs are up and at it! Many took to Brinx’s socials to air their grievance with the Jamaica, Queens rapper. One said, “you’re BROKE. Stop flexing money that you clearly do NOT have.” Another said “flop,” while another asked, “you mad doggie?” referencing one of the lines from Rich Sex, which Nicki asked at the end of the song.

Another person said, “you wake tf up & realize you not winning this case, it’s gonna end faster than the 3 words you said in the beginning of rich sex.”

Others taunted the rapper that music he posted on Instagram was “trash.”

DaBaby Calls Himself And Lil Wayne “Best Rappers Alive”

Are DaBaby and Lil Wayne the Best Rappers Alive?

Fans of DaBaby are familiar with his extreme confidence. He’s definitely never been one to hide all that he’s achieved, so far, like his stockpile of plaques, including Billboard chart placements as well as his Grammy Award nominations. He’s done all of this in a relatively short career. His latest claims though may be his most outlandish. In the studio over the weekend, while working with Lil Wayne, he claimed that he and Weezy are the best rappers in the game to date.

Using Instagram to share his thoughts, he said, “Best rappers alive” alongside pictures of himself and Wayne at Wayne’s Miami luxe studio.

Lil Wayne first joined DaBaby in 2020 when the pair jumped on Jack Harlow’s “WHATS POPPIN” remix. Their efforts were rewarded with a No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Wayne has always expressed his interest in helping the younger generation learn more about the genre. He’s been very vocal about sharing his knowledge as well. Recently he shared those thoughts during an interview with Brett Berish for Bumbu on Friday, December 18, 2020.

He explained why he feels drawn to help out. “Before I stepped into it, they had music everyone looked a certain way and everyone did a certain thing.” He added: “Look at me, now look at music. They all look like me. I love it.”

He went on to say that while he admired that the younger rappers were trying to carve out their own niche they had little understanding of how he became successful and what it truly takes.

“None of them trying to be like me. They’re gonna get some tattoos in they face, a grill, they might put Lil on the front of their names or Baby after it, but they don’t sound nothing like me, they haven’t been through what I’ve been through or they’re not from where I’m from.”

DaBaby has also been trying to do his part to help out others in the genre, especially those from North Carolina. He has a number of rappers on his Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment roster. Whether or not he and Lil Wayne are the greatest in the game is still highly debatable.

Police raiding my spot, they saw it was me and took selfies
Play with them guns, soon as they pop I’m gon’ hit my target
In front of his broad, in front of his daughters, I’m so remorseless
We in Miami in the middle of a pandemic and we on a new beach
Working that salmon, runnin’ that sushi

Lil Wayne hit with federal weapons charge for boarding a plane with a gold-plated handgun

Lil Wayne hit with federal weapons charge for boarding a plane with a gold-plated handgun
“Trump still got 63 days left,” 50 Cent responded. “Call him, Wayne.”

Lil Wayne faces a federal weapons charge after the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida reviewed an incident from 2019, according to a report from TMZ.

Federal agents reportedly found a gold-plated handgun and ammunition when Wayne’s private plane was searched upon landing in Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport last December. Now, TMZ reports that the D.A. has charged him with one count possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon (he was hit with a felony gun charge in New York ten years prior). As the site points out, Weezy could face up to ten years if convicted.

Read Next:

In a press statement, Lil Wayne’s attorney Howard Srebnick emphasized that Wayne never weaponized the handgun: “Carter is charged with possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage on a private plane. There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it. There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person. The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Furthermore, Srebnick added that “although the Supreme Court has not yet decided the constitutional question, Justice Amy Coney Barrett recently wrote an appellate dissenting opinion in which she stated that “Absent evidence that he either belongs to a dangerous category or bears individual markers of risk, permanently disqualifying [a convicted felon] from possessing a gun violates the Second Amendment.”

Meanwhile, on Instagram, 50 Cent suggested that Weezy get Donald Trump on the phone to try and sort this out, after he threw his support behind the disgraced president back in October.

The FADER has reached out to Lil Wayne’s camp for further comment.

The original song featured Brooklyn rapper DAFI WOO, but today his verse gets swapped out on the remix in favor of Lil Wayne. The breathless new bars feature a nod to Smoke’s death in February: “Rest in peace to Pop / We here today, we gone tomorrow.” Take a listen below.

Lil Wayne, Tha Carter V (Deluxe Edition)

It feels a bit surreal to be living in a time where announcements about release dates surrounding Tha Carter V are actually borne out, but here we are. Earlier this week, Mack Maine said a deluxe edition of Carter V was coming on Friday, and it’s actually out. There are seven brand new tracks with new verses from Post Malone, 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, and Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan.

Sufjan Stevens, The Ascension

As creatively restless as he is influential, Sufjan Stevens shares his new album The Ascension after leading with the synth-poppy tracks “Sugar,” and “Video Game,” as well as the epic electronic elegy “America.” “My objective for this album was simple,” Stevens said in a press statement, “Interrogate the world around you. Question anything that doesn’t hold water. Exterminate all bullshit. Be part of the solution or get out of the way.”

Prince, Sign O The Times Super Deluxe Edition

A newly remastered edition of the classic album comes with 63 previously unreleased songs. Not a hard sell.

Deftones, Ohms

Since their debut, Deftones have been experimenting within the structures of alternative metal in ways that caused the success of the nu-metal trend to elude them, allowing their catalog to age like wine as a result. Deftones seek to keep the streak going on their new album Ohms.

They’ve brought along with them a rogue’s gallery of hip-hop artists both classic and contemporary: Nas, YG, Rapsody, DJ Premier, Black Thought, Mike D and Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill, Run-DMC, and more.

Yves Jarvis, Sundry Rock Song Stock

Marie Davidson & L’Œil Nu, Renegade Breakdown

Marie Davidson brought her career as a globally acclaimed techno artist to a close after last year’s Working Class Woman, and formed a new band for her reinvention as a singer-songwriter inspired by King Crimson, Laurie Anderson, and 80’s funk bands like Cameo.

Bad Boy Chiller Crew, Full Wack No Brakes

The bassline trio can trace its beginnings to the YouTube comedy videos of members Kane and Clive (GK joined after watching some), so they’ll probably never escape the specter of “Are these white boys having a joke and pretending to be rappers?” A shame, because their debut mixtape is full of impressive lyrics and stupid energy that’s hard to resist.

Troi Irons, flowers, the album

Hailing from Los Angeles, Troi Irons is an independent singer-songwriter and producer who can excel in rollicking grunge (“Flowers”), acoustic folk (“Miss You Now), Coldplay-sized empowerment anthems (“Woman”), and more. One to watch.

A$AP Ferg, Floor Seats II

A surprise Friday release comes courtesy of A$AP Ferg, who shares his new album Floor Seats II. As the title suggests, the energy on Floor Seats II is on par with songs played between plays at basketball games. Features include Lil Wayne (“No Ceilings,”) Nicki Minaj and MadeInTYO (“Move Ya Hips”) and Marilyn Manson, who does some heavy breathing and screaming for his feature on “Marilyn Manson.”

Sango, Da Rocinha 4

Breakout Soulection producer and DJ Sango has always been highly influenced by Funk Carioca, the sound of revelry in the favelas of Rio De Janiero. Da Rocinha 4 is the latest installment of his series paying tribute to that sound. “It is about highlighting the history of Funk Carioca and paying homage to the creation of the funk sound,” Sango said of the album. “With this fourth installment, I wanted to reach out to the community of Rocinha, local areas in Rio de Janeiro and Brazil to give and receive support while I push this North American & South American sound.”

Mack Maine says the original version of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is dropping soon
Potentially just ahead of Wayne’s birthday.

Lil Wayne’s 37th birthday is approaching (September 27) and according to Mack Maine, there’s much to be celebrated this trip around the sun. Ahead of next Sunday’s festivities, Maine gifted Weezy the keys to an shiny amethyst 2020 McLaren 720S — as well as the news of the “original” release of Tha Carter V, which he tells TMZ is due out this Friday, September 25.

Tha Carter V initially dropped back in 2018 after a years-long contractual dispute between Wayne and Birdman. Though Weezy has since moved on, releasing Funeral and teasing the existence of Tha Carter VI, many of the album’s original tracks were left in the lurch. According to keen-eyed megafans, a number of those songs have recently been uploaded to the Shazam database, further fueling speculation that they’re about to see the light of day. The FADER has reached out to Wayne’s team for further comment.

2 Chainz enlists Lil Wayne for the “Money Maker” video
So Help Me God, the new album from 2 Chainz, is coming soon.

By Jordan Darville

September 11, 2020

Beyoncé may not have created adding HBCU bands to rap music, but her live concert film Homecoming brought the combination more recognition and respect. And while we may never get a full-length, studio-quality version of “Everybody Mad,” other rappers are picking up the thread and playing tribute to the music of HBCUs. One of them is 2 Chainz, who today shares the music video for his Lil Wayne-featuring song “Money Maker.”

ADVERTISEMENT

The clip and the song are pure celebrations. 2 Chainz and Wayne turn in rascally sex-themed lyrics over a beat that samples the Human Jukebox, the marching band from Louisiana’s Southern University. The backdrop of all this in the visuals is a bunch of marching bands, naturally, doing their joyful thing. Check it out above. “Money Maker” will appear on 2 Chainz’s upcoming album So Help Me God.

August 27, 2020

A$AP Ferg shared his latest single, “No Ceilings,” with Lil Wayne and Jay Gwuapo, along with its dark visuals.

ADVERTISEMENT

The track, of course, makes plenty of references to the fact that it shares its title with Weezy’s 2009 mixtape and its 2015 sequel. “Like Wayne, I got no ceilings / where’s the ceilings” Ferg raps on the song.

The song serves as a quick follow up to Ferg’s last single, the Nicki Minaj and MadeInTYO-assisted “Move Ya Hips,” which debuted in the Billboard Hot 100 top 20 back in July. More recently, Ferg made an appearance on Nas’ “Spicy,” from his latest album King’s Disease, alongside Fivio Foreign.

Momma said, “What you doin’?,” I’m just cookin’ pot roast
Soon as she turned her back, I winked my eye, though
Your bitch wanna f**k me, so I kill that pussy, John Doe, woah

Skinny corduroy pants is full of guap
And the party is gettin’ crashed, then we on out
Just some Mardi Gras masks-s and some locks, uh
Phone charger wrapped around the opp, yeah
Chrome pointed exactly at his mop, yeah
Somebody yelled, “Action!”, and I shot him
Had their own party splashin’, met a thot, yeah
Her boyfriend passionate, I’m not, damn
My calls get cancelled, never dropped, and I’m Bone Thugs faster than the cops
Styrofoam cups, Actavis and pop and a few prescription passes from the doc
Had a few collision crashes then a stop, yeah
Movin’ soft like a Hardtop
Trap house pumpin’ like the Hard Rock
Pills got me feelin’ like the storage dropped
Credit card pumpin’ when your heart stop
Packs in my broad route, and I’m boilin’ water lookin’ at the clock
It’s the rock

BROCKHAMPTON – STAINS lyrics

[Verse 1: Ameer Vann]
I spent like a year and a half on the Greyhound bus
On the way to see this girl
Take a flight back just to keep my job
Used to fly standby, late to the airport
Where the buddy pass? Stuck in the traffic
Whole lotta hours, real long distance
But I’ve grown since then
Learned to be on my own since then
Marble floor in my brand new crib
This the life that I wanted still
Got a hole and it burn my chest
Mash the chip that’s still in my shoulder
Ain’t a day that I still been sober
These the things that I’m tripping over

[Interlude: Ashlan Grey]
Y’all motherfuckers made three albums
Still talking about the same shit
The one gay, the one selling drugs
The one that’s tryna act like Lil Wayne
What the fuck is this shit man?
Y’all better turn this shit off when y’all get in the whip
When y’all enter my whip, y’all better not play this shit
‘Cause this can go right the fuck off

[Verse 2: Matt Champion]
Now them boys hooked on heroin
Parents always asking like, “Where y’all get it from?”
Rehab poppin’ like when Amy had the single out
Single out the reasons how I quit before I fell down
I used to pick Ameer up
Talk about what’s got us fucked up
We vent ’til the sun up, ay
Hopefully get our funds up, ay
And if I didn’t know y’all
Maybe I would have a desk job
Ticking ’til I off myself…

[Bridge: Matt Champion]
Used to drive around for some hours (oh, ohhh)
Used to get paid by the hour (oh, ohhh)
Now I’m just pickin up my check (oh, ohhh)
Now I’m just pickin up a sweat (yeah)
Used to drive around for some hours (oh, ohhh)
Circle round the block for some hours (oh, ohhh)
Now I’m just pickin up my check (oh, ohhh)
Now I’m just pickin up a sweat (yeah)

[Chorus: Joba]
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby

[Verse 3: Dom McLennon]
I spent like a year and a half feeling sorry for myself
‘Cause I thought love ain’t make sense anymore
If I drank, you would probably see a fifth on the floor
And a hole in the door, rest a few more
Scared of the past I’ve been tryna avoid
From before I was born
Running from the shoes that my grandfathers wore
Tryna pick a better battle I saw on the wharf
Feel the sun in my pores but I still got clouds in my head, now
Rain for a little bit, stay for a little bit
Moved along with my head, down
That’s what momma taught me and I never let them fuck me
When they handed me a dead king’s, crown
Told ’em think of what you doing before I’m the one you’re choosing
I just wanna be a human when I share myself
Hear the things I’m saying and I scare myself, goddamn

[Chorus: Joba]
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby
Be there any minute, I’ll be on it in it baby

This incredible, it’s inevitable
You don’t trick these folk, talkin’ ’bout things that you would never do (true)
Feds did a sweep in the A, they took the squad away
I was sellin’ bags at Irene, right where my mama stay
I ain’t never had to fabricate, auntie been locked up from ’88
I’m the bomb, watch me to detonate, I’m the best rapper up out the A
Used to sell bags, now I graduate, I got the trap on my resume
I got the crib with the pool and the lake and the gate with the yard, that’s too big to rake
Turned up a notch and I elevate, I got a new album on the way
Rappers or go to the league, what I’m really sayin’ is that ain’t the only way

[Chorus: Derez De’shon & 2 Chainz]
I ain’t asked nan nigga for nun, I took the harder way (I took the harder way) (yeah, tell ’em)

Lil Wayne – Drowning Lyrics

[Intro: DJ Drama & Vice Versa]
Dedication
Rest in peace Fredo Santana
Say that she used to be a lifeguard

[Chorus: Vice Versa]
So much fake love, I been drowning, drowning
Pop me a perc, in my zone and it’s timeless, timeless
I’ve been so hot, tell a nigga come find me
Been at the bottom, look down and I bet you gon’ see diamonds
So much fake love, I been drowning, drowning
Pop me a perc, in my zone and it’s timeless, timeless
I’ve been so hot, tell a nigga come find me
Been at the bottom, look down and I bet you gon’ see diamonds

[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
Don’t ask me for shit but this blunt or this dick
Fake love in the air, love bugs turn to ticks
That’s more than enough, Pink Floyd in the cup
Burr, I always pick up, ‘less she callin’ my bluffs
Smell it like a [?], light it, hit it
Mix it with some molly now we gettin’ scientific
Bought another house just to put more pots to piss in
Bitches got they hands out, I shake it like we just did business
This just business, wait
Oh my God, I’m drowning in her kidneys, she like (ooh)
I just listen and the higher notes she hit it
I know I sound like a grisly and the cocaine look like crystals
That’s that white girl, call her Chrissy, hol’ up, listen, see
You fuck it all up
You put that wall up
You feelin’ yourself, but I can’t hate
‘Cause you got that soft touch, okay
You standin’ in rain and drippin’ it
You lookin’ for change but penny pinch
You swallow your pride, I’m sippin’ it
You dryin’ your tears, I swim in ’em
6 shit

[Chorus: Vice Versa]
So much fake love, I been drowning, drowning
Pop me a perc, in my zone and it’s timeless, timeless
I’ve been so hot, tell a nigga come find me
Been at the bottom, look down and I bet you gon’ see diamonds
So much fake love, I been drowning, drowning
Pop me a perc, in my zone and it’s timeless, timeless
I’ve been so hot, tell a nigga come find me
Been at the bottom, look down and I bet you gon’ see diamonds

[Verse 2: Vice Versa]
I’m off the codeine [?] in my cup
Robotic coupe while I’m pullin’ up
Was feelin’ down so I spiked my cup
Was in need of you so I hit you up
Hollywood, I’m in a loft
Catch a plane, Randy Moss
[?] ’em off, [?] ’em off
Fuck the law, what’s the cost?
Please don’t be [?] on me, ooh get the snakes on me
[?] what’s the cost? Get ’em [?], get ’em off
Pop a perc I take off
Got a bitch [?], then she claim she from [?]
That bitch a liar, though
Say she a rider, bro
Say that she also a model, bro
Say that she used to be a lifeguard, savin’ you
You don’t see me drownin’ hoe

[Verse 3: Marley G]
Marley don’t shoot ’em, but I still keep a chopper on me
Trap in silence, if they want you know that I’m a-
Niggas hatin’, debatin’, don’t wanna see me prosper
My flow is ill as fuck, niggas better call a doctor
[?]
Back in the G I was flippin’, runnin’ through the projects
In the backyard with Tune ballin’ in a pair of Balmain’s
Last time I bought my bitches, I swear I love ’em all, mane
I be high as fuck, I be fly as fuck
My bitches is nasty, fuckin’ her from the back, she callin’ me daddy
With two in Miami, all for the family, do it for granny
I go with my move, nothin’ to prove
Droppin’ Choos, wearin’ jewels
Couple thou’ on the shoes
Shawty wet like a pool
Bitches see me and they drool
We don’t [?]
YM, never lose
It’s my time, no snooze
It’s my time, no snooze
YM, never lose, yeah

[Chorus: Vice Versa]
So much fake love, I been drowning, drowning
Pop me a perc, in my zone and it’s timeless, timeless
I’ve been so hot, tell a nigga come find me
Been at the bottom, look down and I bet you gon’ see diamonds
So much fake love, I been drowning, drowning
Pop me a perc, in my zone and it’s timeless, timeless
I’ve been so hot, tell a nigga come find me
Been at the bottom, look down and I bet you gon’ see diamonds

[Outro: Lil Wayne]
The craziest place I’ve ever seen a Lil Wayne tattoo on someone is… you ready? So, I’m ’bout to explain it, um… inside the lips of their pussy. Um, that’s just the craziest place. So like, even when you see the pussy, she can show any man her pussy, he won’t see it. She has to literally open her pussy up for you to see the name. Shout out- shout my homegirl, that’s my homegirl, one time for her. I love you, girl. What’s the craziest place I haven’t seen a Lil Wayne tattoo is when people come up to me and say “You know I got your name on me, but, like, I can’t show you right now ’cause I’m in work,” or, “I can’t show you right now ’cause,” whatever. You ain’t got my fuckin’ name on you, shut the fuck up

Lil Wayne “Dedication 6: Reloaded” Mixtape: Listen

Lil Wayne debuts his new mixtape Dedication 6: Reloaded with 20 more bangers.

Weezy released Dedication 6 in December and a month later he released the part two of the album hosted by DJ Drama making it the latest addition to his Gangsta Grillz mixtape series. Drama and Lil Wayne teamed up in 2005 for the launch of the series and since then we’ve seen six installments and now sign that they will ever end the production. D6: Reloaded is the latest addition to the saga.

D6R comes with 20 songs including a track with Drake “Family Feud,” Rich The Kid is featured on “Don’t Shoot Em” and Juelz Santana came through for “Bloody Mary.” Elsewhere on the project you will also find remixed for $AP Ferg’s “Plain Jane,” Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang” called “Groupie Gang,” and Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna’s “Loyalty” called “Weezy N Madonna.”

Lil Wayne and DJ Drama brings forward a variety of guest artists for each installment in the Dedication mixtape series. Over the years we’ve seen the likes of The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, T.I., J. Cole and more jumping on the project. For the first half of D6, Weezy tapped some of his Young Money comrades, Gudda Gudda, Euro, Cory Gunz, and HoodyBaby, for some guest verses.

While he has been dropping mixtapes, we’ve yet to get a full album from Lil Wayne for years after Cash Money shelves his long-awaited Tha Carter V project. Last year he filed legal documents asking a judge to dissolve Young Money or appoint a receiver to oversee the operations but Birdman objected to the move and file a counter as he moves to block Weezy from disbanding the iconic label they founded 15 years ago. Wayne has a pending lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money for $51 million. That case has been ongoing for the past three years.

Those stunner man bussin’ like dollar man, it’s evident
These hoes love me, they say my dick is they medicine
Cosby spikin’ gelatin, still pushin’ and peddling
Settling never I’m like DiCaprio in the Revenant
Still whippin’ and stretchin’ it
2Pac Ambidextrous
I’m a beast, a dog, I see that money I’m catching it
You hoe throwin’ it at me, I’m catchin’ it
Don’t text me go check your bitch
You don’t wanna get me outta my element
From a tenant into [?] order my residence
Phones still clicking I feel like a receptionist
Like I’m extra-terrestrial
My life’s a fucking movie, boy don’t get yourself edited
I’m like Steph at the free-throw that piece blow, I never miss
Taught your girl how to whip it good now she a lesbian
You can level up, still won’t be on my level then, that’s level 10
These niggas hot, I must be kettle then
They don’t want the steam but I know you want the tea
That’s your bitch when she only fuck with me, ’cause I’m ballin’ MSG
Roof missin’ all this whippin’ I need two kitchens
Fuck the DA I ain’t never been no school pidgeon
Won’t catch me in no club unless my tool get in
Be smart cause bounce he a fool with it
[?] say it’s on, seven-eleven with it, that’s 24/7 with it
Wherever whenever with it
Your momma gon’ need a Church with a Reverand in it
Just pray it’s a heaven in it and hope that they let you in it
Boy I expose the truth in guys, cross me and get crucified
War’s on, that bazooka rise, niggas get neutralized

(Verse 2: Lil Wayne)
Suicide, this is suicide
Tell ’em seek and you will find ’cause Imma lose my mind
Kick a nigga ass then give him my shoes to shine
It’s do or die, I come from where we used to crime
The Uzi-9 more important than the school supplies
The pools is dry, my niggas and the food is fried
The news is lies
The pigeons is to spook the fly
The rules deny
All the tuckers goons is mine, that’s Tunechi slime
They kill you ain’t gon’ do the time
We unify, Young Money revolutionize
The new design, we had to leave the flukes behind and super-size
The numbers through the roof and sky
Don’t look, too surprised with the lines we makin’
Moves and strides, groves and vibes I’m too alive
These hoes need to be supervised, they put on a cute disguise you grooms is blind
She get dick in the Uber ride, Number 2 with fries, I’m pimpin’
Now who am I? I’m who and why, I’m rude and kind
My cars a computer, rise I’m cruisin’ by
Smokin’ blunts Rubin size
You fools can try, these tools getting utilized, you euthanize
Prrp, skrrt, shoot then drive, now who survive
We comin’ back to rewind
I’m usually high, sippin’ on a Houston wine
Feel humanized, I want my throne to recline
Jackie Red, Julie Blonde, they cuban fine, I bruise their spine
I leave and they snooze till 9
Superglued to the grime, my crew my tribe
These bitches try to divide, we too defined
Got the drugs to provide the coolest highs
The green is green and the white with the blue is ice
The syrup in the juice collide, the two combine like suits and ties
Magic, poof
Goodbye

Lil Wayne Responds To Paternity Suit “I Am Not The Father” Of 15-Year-Old

Lil Wayne has responded to a paternity suit involving a 15-year-old and he is making it clear that he is not the father.

Keiotia Watson filed a paternity lawsuit against Lil Wayne in 2015 claiming that he is the father of her 15-year-old son, Dwayne, a name she gave him after his alleged father. She claimed that she slept with the rap icon back in 2001 and got pregnant. In her suit, she asked the court to name Lil Wayne as the father of her child and order him to pay her child support.

Lil Wayne pretty much ignored her case and she filed a default judgement and won, which means that Weezy would be required to pay her child support of $5,000 per month starting January 2016. Wayne is also required to cover the child’s medical and school expenses. The “A Milli” rapper is now responding to the paternity suit and one thing he is making clear, he is not the father of the teenager,” The Blast reported. He also claimed that Watson is lying because he never slept with her.

Wayne is also arguing that he was never made aware of the child until the lawsuit, so he was never given due process to investigate whether or not he is the child’s biological father. The rapper also claimed that Watson fraudulently obtained the judgement against him by lying and deception. “I am the loving father of four (4) children, all of whom I provided support for since birth. Up until now, I have never been involved in a child support case,” Lil Wayne said in his legal docs.

The Dedication 6 rapper added in his response to the suit that while he was residing in New Orleans in 2001, his schedule required him to travel out of town extensively. He said he did not acknowledged Dwayne Brown as his child and says its not possible that he is the father. Bottomline is, she wants a new trial and wants the suit dismiss.

The Weeknd Severs Ties With H&M In Scathing Tweet Amidst Racism Scandal

The Weeknd is the latest celebrity to sever ties with fashion company H&M over claims of racism.

Twitter erupted in anger on Monday after H&M posted an image from an ad showing a black kid wearing a hoodie with the words “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle Gym.” Folks started calling out the fashion brand for the racist gesture and The Weeknd, who has been doing business with the outlet for over a year now, quickly condemned the brand in a scathing tweet saying he will immediately stop doing business with them.

“Woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo. I’m deeply offended and will not be working with H&M anymore,” he wrote on Twitter along with posting the questionable image. The R&B singer, born Abel Tesfaye, started working with H&M last year by promoting gears from the fashion brand before he started collaborating on different pieces through his own XO brand. Sources close to the singer has indicated that he will continue to release new lines from his XO brand without a retailer behind it or through possible new partnership.

The Weeknd also currently has a partnership with Puma and his gears have been selling out fast. As for H&M, the company has since released a statement apologizing for the ad while vowing to get to the bottom of what really happened. “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top,” H&M said in a statement (via USA Today). “The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States.We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

Since the news went viral, the company has been getting hammered by celebrities and fans alike who are showing no mercy on social media.

Birdman Moves To Stop Lil Wayne From Dissolving Young Money

Birdman is pulling all the stops to prevent Lil Wayne from dissolving Young Money Entertainment.

Back in October, Lil Wayne filed court documents asking the courts to appoint a receiver to oversee the operations of Young Money pending the outcome of his lawsuit against Cash Money and Birdman. Basically, Weezy want Birdman to stop cashing checks off the backs of his YM artists, so he is asking a judge to either appoint an independent party to oversee the day-to-day operation or to liquidate the company.

Birdman wants neither of the above and has asked his lawyers to move to stop Lil Wayne from dissolving the label they both co-founded almost 15 years ago. Sources say the Cash Money honcho is furious that Weezy is trying to terminate the label which he calls an iconic brand in hip hop. He feels like Weezy is being vindictive and is only doing it to hurt his bottom line.

Dancehall HipHop previously reported that Lil Wayne filed a lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money for $51 million. According to the New Orleans rapper, Cash Money owes him $8 million in advances for his shelved album, Tha Carter V. He claimed in his legal docs that he is also owed royalties and a cut off the profits from artists he brought to the label like Nicki Minaj and Drake. He also wants the judge to relieve him from his contract with Cash Money Records claiming that the label breached the contract by refusing to pay him his album advances.

Birdman has since shelved the Carter V album and there is no signs that the project will ever see the light of day. The rapper/music exec wants nobody to be appointed to man the operations of Young Money or the label dissolve and that makes perfect sense since it’s YM artists like Drake and Nicki Minaj are currently making the bulk of the cash for Cash Money.

How Drake Cleverly Ended Meek Mill Beef On “Family Feud” With Lil Wayne

Drake may have just made a bold move to end his beef with Meek Mill.

The rappers have been beefing since 2015 when the Philly rapper fired off some tweets about Drizzy using a ghostwriter to pen his raps. Little did he know what was to come after that rant on social media. We’ve since learned that he did it because Nicki Minaj broke up with him and he wanted to get back at her. Of course, Drake emerged the victor from that feud using two fiery diss track including the Grammy-nominated single “Back To Back” and it took Meek days to respond with a diss track that earned him even more Ls.

Since then, both Drake and Meek Mill did their own interviews where they both admitted that they might never be friends ever again and their feud may just turn out to be forever. On Friday, Lil Wayne drops his new collaboration with his protege, “Family Feud,” and Drizzy used the opportunity to extend an olive branch of the sort to his foe who is now incarcerated on a 2-4 years prison sentence for probation violation.

“I need my paper long like “A Milli” verse, Or, too long like a sentence from a Philly judge, F**k is the point in all the beefing when we really blood, Nobody wins when the family feuds, ni**a,” Drake raps in his lengthy freestyle verse. In another line, he hinted that he isn’t really calling a truce, but nevertheless, he is sympathetic towards Meek Mill over his unjust sentencing. “But this isn’t all about calling truce, I’m still dishing out verbal abuse, That sh*t could get re-introduced if somebody got something they urging to prove, ni**a,” he continues to rap.

Since the height of their beef in the summer of 2015, both rappers have been taking subliminal shots at each other in their songs, but this is the first clear signs that they could make peace. Drake also took a jab at Donald Trump on the “Family Feud (Remix)” as well as stated that he wishes he could fix Lil Wayne beef with Cash Money/Universal Music. “Ayy, tell me if TD bank is approving loans, I’m thinking about paying Wayne what Universal owes, My ni**a spend a lifetime going platinum and gold,” Drizzy raps.

Do you think Drake and Meek Mill will make peace anytime soon?
