The recent situation between Young Thug and Lil Wayne is escalating albeit in a confusing manner. Here’s the breakdown: Lil Wayne doesn’t want to be part of Birdman’s YMCMB, Wayne’s highly-anticipated studio album Tha Carter V is put on hold, Young Thug is putting out his debut album entitled Carter 6 in tribute to Wayne, Wayne doesn’t like it and calls out Thug, Thug responds by saying he doesn’t want any problems and reiterates that the newly titled Barter 6 is a tribute to Wayne. Did you get all of that? Good. Now, T.I. decided to share his thoughts on the matter with DJ Whoo Kid. Find out in the clip after the jump.
Still no Tha Carter V, but that isn’t stopping Weezy from dropping new heat. First Lil Wayne apologized by sharing Sorry 4 the Wait 2 earlier in the week and now he’s sharing his much hyped collaboration with Atlanta’s Migos. “Amazing Amy” is produced by London on da Track. Listen after the jump.
Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated Tha Carter V may not see the light of day anytime soon but he’s apologizing to his fans for that with his second installment to the Sorry 4 the Wait series. Featuring Drake, 2 Chainz, Mack Maine, Shanell, and Christina Milian Sorry 4 the Wait 2 has Wayne going over “Sh!t,” “No Type,” “Hot N***a,” “CoCo,” “You Guessed It” and many other recognizable songs. You can stream and download Lil Wayne’s Sorry 4 the Wait 2 mixtape after the jump.
Lil Wayne preps the release of his forthcoming Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape amidst the battle over the release of his (currently) pending Tha Carter V album. And to tease the forthcoming Sorry 4 The Wait 2 mixtape he is sharing a freestyle over Future’s Mike WiLL Made It-produced “Sh!t” instrumental. Listen after the jump.
It looks like Lil Wayne’s current record label issues have resulted in officially squashing his beef with fellow New Orleans hitmaker Master P. The two have joined forces on “Power” a track that is set to appear on Master P’s forthcoming We All We Got album, which drops later tonight. Listen to “Power” after the jump.
Nicki Minaj has shared the official music video to her “Only” single featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, and Chris Brown. The official visuals for “Only” arrives a month after the controversial lyrical video which the Anti-Defamation League accused of promoting Nazi imagery. Naturally Nicki denied the allegations, citing that she would never condone Nazism in her art. Regardless the new visuals showcase all four stars in a relatively ominous setting. Peep the video for “Only” after the jump.
Thanksgiving is here! Thanksgiving is here! But it’s not all fun and games and stuffing your face with food. While we sit comfortably in our humble abode with our loved ones, celebrating with a feast, there are those who go out and make sure to help those in need. Sadly, however, rappers aren’t exactly the first profession that’d cross your mind as being “helpful” as these are merely gangsters, drug dealers, and entertainers, right? Wrong. For example Birdman and Cash Money are participating in their 20th annual Turkey Giveaway this week. And that’s not all, as rappers like Jeezy, T.I., and Ludacris regularly find themselves helping local Atlanta natives enjoy their Thanksgiving as well. So, we here at iHipHop decided we’d attempt to dispel the myths of rappers being careless and lazy, and showcase their good deeds, by assembling a picture slideshow of them giving back on Thanksgiving. Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving!
During last night’s 2014 American Music Awards Lil Wayne was joined by Christina Milian for a live rendition of his new song “Start a Fire.” And it didn’t take long before the audio made its way onto the internet. “Start a Fire” will appear on Lil Wayne’s forthcoming Tha Carter V, which is due out Dec. 9th. Listen to “Start a Fire” after the jump!
Lil Wayne unleashes a new track entitled “Offday” as hip-hop heads patiently await the release of Tha Carter V (coming December 9th) featuring Young Money’s new signee Flow. No word as to whether or not the track will appear on the forthcoming album. Listen after the jump.
Lil Wayne’s fervent fans were hugely distraught when it was announced his forthcoming Tha Carter V album will be pushed back indefinitely but that isn’t something Weezy from dropping new tunes for everyone waiting with baited breath. “Gotti” is being billed as the latest single from the delayed Tha Carter V album and features Weezy and The LOX going tic for tac for damn near five minutes. Listen after the jump.
For the official “About the Money” remix T.I. recruits some heavyweights. Lil Wayne and Jeezy join Tip and Young Thug to complete this Southern hip-hop coalition. Now all that’s missing from this is Juicy J doing some adlibs. Peep the “About the Money” remix after the jump.
The collaboration the hip-hop world has been dying to hear has finally happened. It was only a matter of time that Young Thug, who has admitted on multiple occasions that he is a huge fan of Lil Wayne, would collaborate with his idol. Thugger is such a rabid Weezy fan that he even had plans to name his first album Tha Carter VI after Wayne’s highly decorated album series. Well, here it is: the two rappers meet on “Take Kare,” which is said to serve as the first single from the upcoming Rich Gang 2 album. Listen after the jump.
