Because #science #research.
Seriously, Hashtag Important ran the numbers:
Too bad for the Cavs Tha Carter V didn’t come out before The Finals. Also too bad for J.R. because he opted out of that 6 million for this season and still doesn’t have a deal. Pretty fantastic and admittedly a stretch of research though.
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…
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 🙂 ).
Jeezy and Wiz Khalifa amongst the features…
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.
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.
