Lil Wayne ‘Free Weezy Album’ (Stream)

Surprise, surprise. Here’s a new Lil Wayne album and it’s actually out in full! No, it’s not Tha Carter, but this Free Weezy Album is just that via TIDAL (or the stream embedded below 🙂 ).

Free Weezy Album release date

Lil Wayne’s long-awaited album is finally upon us. Well, barring a push-back the week or day of. I’ll believe it when I hear it, but the man himself is plotting a July 4th release date, as said below. Time will tell soon enough if we’ll have some new Weezy for the summer.

Lil Wayne signed a deal with Jay Z

UPDATE from Lil Wayne’s Manager: “When Wayne was speaking about the partnership with JAY Z, he was speaking about his new deal as an artist owner with TIDAL.”

I just signed a deal with my motherf*cking idol JAY Z!!!

That was Lil Wayne at last night’s KMEL Summer Jam, and now the speculation begins about what the deal was about. Quick thoughts point to Roc Nation given Wayne’s long troubles now with Birdman and Cash Money, but it’s more likely Weezy’s referring to TIDAL since “Glory” was just released exclusively there. Stay tuned.

ICYMI: 2 new Lil Wayne remixes

DJ Khaled f/ Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, & Big Sean “How Many Times”

By now, it’s pretty much a given how formulaic a new DJ Khaled single is, and today, so is the video. The self-aware DJ Khaled presents another ridiculous 30 second skit that I can easily see Aziz Ansari’s Tom Haverford character loving and then the video proceeds to showcase the ladies while the other 3 artists do their thing with Khaled minimally shouting again on the hook. Even the hook (by Brown) and verses (by Wayne, Sean, and Brown) are formulaic also — nothing new really from any of em except a little bit of a lazy flow from Sean and a combination of Future and Migos from Breezy. *shrugs* Not my style but it’ll be summer’s style for sure.

Lil Wayne & Papi rap “HYFR”

ESPN’s Highly Questionable has been money with the rap guests all year and this time, Lil Wayne joined Le Batard, Bomani Jones, and Papi out in Miami.

There are no sports opinions from Wayne on the interwebs just yet, but we do get this great outtake of Weezy and Papi rapping HYFR, substituting coughs for swear words. I got a good chuckle outta this. Hope you do too:

TBT: Rap City’s Biggest Freestyles

Here’s a fresh #TBT post for ya as I just caught wind of The Concourse’s rundown of Rap City’s Biggest Freestyles. They caught a ton of legends in or just approaching their prime so this is a fun trip down memory lane.

Included below: Backpack era Kanye, throwback jersey era Wayne, and whom this format was tailor made for: bandana era Eminem (with D12, R.I.P. Proof).

I just included those 3 — The Concourse has Snoop, T.I., Luda, Dipset, and even Destiny’s Child amongst others.
