Weezy F sits down with Elliot Wilson for the latest installment in his CRWN interview series. For the first 30-minute segment, Wayne speaks on Tha Carter V, Kanye West, Jay-Z, the “best rapper alive” title and more.
In June of last year, Lil’ Wayne stopped by the set of Jimmie Kimmel Live to promote I Am Not A Human Being II. During his interview he said, “I want to retire after Tha Carter V, which I hope would be my last album.” If you were hoping that he would change his mind you are in no such luck. Read More
Wayne “doesn’t even know what he’s celebrating,” but it’s pretty obvious he got some tough production here from Lee On The Boards. This will appear on the Young Money Rise Of An Empire compilation LP, which drops March 11. Read More
YG drops the official video for the remix to “My N*gga” which features a host of cameos, including Jeezy, Ty Dolla $ign and DJ Mustard. Directed by Motion Family.
Covering a soul standard, Busta and The Abstract team up with famous friends (who don’t actually rhyme on the track). Still it’s a jam for the older folk and some revivalists.

Spitta reunites with Weezy and Birdman for a new track entitled “442,” produced by Monsta Beatz. No idea where this track will end up, but hearing Curren$y and Wayne rapping together once again, certainly is a thing of beauty. Read More
Every few years, there is a shift within a genre that meets the public’s ire or adoration (usually in equal parts). Drake represents a shift in hip-hop towards a spacious sound-scape and nakedly expressive emoting.
The year’s not even over and Drake is at #11 on this list, with $10.5M banked already. King Kendrick ain’t far off his heels with $9M in total. 50 Cent has also tumbled way down this list as compared to a few years ago. It looks like the young guns are taking their official place and not just some “Saved-By-The-Bell-The-New-Class” knockoffs either. Read the full list after the jump. Hat tip to TSS.
