  • Open Letter… Famous (with his daughter Reginae)… vintage reflective Weezy.
  • Snoop and a flip of Dre’s “Xxplosive”. When that dropped… man. Immediate add to the car rotation here in L.A.
  • And then it started to feel long… I’m not the biggest Weezy fan so take it for what it is though.
  • Definitely got the mid-2000s sound a few times too, which for the Ashanti feature… Hey! I didn’t mind!

Weezy returns. How we liking the album so far?

Lil Wayne f/ Charlie Puth “Nothing But Trouble”

On top of his appearance on First Take today, Lil Wayne takes to Apple Music to release his new video for the Charlie Puth assisted single, “Nothing But Trouble”. The song takes aim at IG models and the video cleverly follows suit presenting them as cardboard cutouts. I’m not a fan of the song really, but the visuals at least take it to a higher level. Who else is with me in wanting more of a street single from Weezy tho?

Lil Wayne on ESPN First Take

Lil Wayne made it a trending topic all morning — his appearance once again on ESPN First Take that had many speculating about such actual appearance. Wayne talks softly and he may be construed as aloof, but it doesn’t seem that unusual to me. Maybe it’s because he predicted the Lakers are making the playoffs?

It was about the content of the whole segment for me though and Weezy talked about his beloved Packers losing Jordy Nelson yesterday to a torn ACL, how he became a Packers fan in the first place, his views on Tom Brady & Deflategate, and finally: a rave review of Straight Outta Compton. ICYMI, enjoy up above.

NBA Stars Music Motivation

James Harden, CP3, and Allen Iverson were among the stars in attendance at the NBAPA Player Awards that aired on BET last night (recorded Sunday in Vegas.)

Below, BET put together a classic, but always interesting video asking the above stars and more what they listen to before games. CP3 is pretty set on Weezy, who also performed “Glory” live on stage below, and AI… well, he’s pretty set on a certain artist too and it’s probably one you wouldn’t think of at first. Enjoy!

Birdman & Young Thug allegedly involved in murder plot against Lil Wayne

Ok, I’ve admittedly been off on every little twist in this Birdman/Young Thug vs. Lil Wayne saga. Apparently they (Birdman and Weezy) confronted each other this past weekend in Miami. But this turn of events is too crazy not to inform and write about.

Read the headline again!

Here’s the description and tweets, straight from Miss Info:

On Wednesday night, Atlanta WSB-TV’s Mike Petchenik reported that in an indictment, Birdman and Young Thug conspired to kill Lil’ Wayne, which lead to shooter Jimmy Carlton Winfrey carrying out Thug’s order in that tour bus shooting in April.

The indictment also cites Young Thug’s “Halftime” music video, where Winfrey, a close associate of the rapper, is seen brandishing an assault rifle. In that shooting back in April, Lil’ Wayne’s tour bus was hit with gunfire following a show at Club Compound. Fortunately, no one was injured in the shooting, and Jimmy Carlton Winfrey was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.

Winfrey was known as Thug’s former manager and remained a close friend and associate of the rapper. The new development comes just hours after Young Thug was arrested for allegedly threatening a mall security guard.

Aight guys, this is getting too far. We don’t want this to escalate even more than this (which goes without saying) so hopefully this news, whether 100% true or not, inspires some sort of burying of the hatchet. Stay tuned…
