Chamillionare has been gaining his relevance back recently after dropping a new mixtape – Mixtape Messiah 4. The tape is hot and is available for download below. Meanwhile, Chamillionare told HipHopDX in an interview that he respects 50 Cent and Lil’ Wayne as essential artists in the mixtape movement. In the interview, he spoke on 50 Cent’s golden times: “Back in the day, when 50 first came out, he had some real dope mixtapes. Now, it’s more the commercial thing where people say you’re singing a hook or whatever. Back then, he was just jackin’ peoples’ beats and puttin’ them real catchy melodies on a tight beat, and just puttin’ out tight stuff.“ He also feels that Wayne’s hard work is unmatched in the current climate: “He out-working everybody on the mixtape circuit. When I talk to the underground stores out here in the mixtape world, they tell me that Wayne‘s runnin’ it. He’s the most active.” There’s no denying Wheezy and 50′s contributions to rap, and the mixtape game more specifically. Check out Cham’s new mixtape and let us know if you think he deserves to be mentioned with the elite. Chamillionare – Mixtape Messiah 4

I recently read a blurb about sneaker company Supra in Complex Magazine, which told people to not wait for Jay-Z to tell them it’s cool, and to trust that it is. I’ll extend that by saying, don’t let anyone tell you what’s cool, but I’ll suggest which companies are hot right about now. With that being said, Supra was started by professional skateboarder Chad Muska a few years back, and has recently caught fire after Lil’ Wayne was donned head-to-toe in Supra at the BET Awards, and everyone from Nas to Mickey Factz has expressed their love for the brand. As of now, footwear is what they’re primarily known for, and they have models for skaters and for non-skaters. The models include Suprano, Suprano High, Diablo, Skylow, SkyTop, Sport, Cali, Cruzer, Cuban, Vaider and Vulk-Low. All the models come in several color ways and they all have a unique look to them.

After going to a hearing for four counts of possession of drug pariphenalia, one count of driving without a license and one count of marijuana possession in Miami – DMX’s prayers were not answered and he was denied bond. So, X will be staying in jail until October 2nd, at which point he will have another hearing to see if he will be given bond in Miami or shipped to Arizona, where he has other charges pending. What the hell happened to X? Just a few years ago he was on TRL and doing world tours, now it seems like he can’t go a month without doing something stupid, and making sure a cop knows about it. I remember he was planning a gospel album about a year ago – seems like that church music will be held back until he can actually make it to church (on the outside). I would say good luck, but it seems that X wouldn’t like my kind words, perhaps he’d get to barking. And on another note, Wheezy has to be careful before he’s the new X.
Looks like the leak of Swagga Like Us has maddened one of the four artists present. With a one year sentence on the horizon you can kind of understand why Tip is a lil heated about the track featuring himself, Weezy, Kanye and Jigga. The track which has had mixed reviews from fans and the industry was not supposed to be available until late next month according to TI who had this to say on the subject ‘Wait till the cake comes out the kitchen before you eat it. That’s like a kid who sees his toys before Christmas; it takes away from me and from the fans as well.’ Ahh well as we all know the leak is more guaranteed that a hit is these days.
Four of the most relevant and popular hip-hoppers out have come together for a classic track – entitled “Swagger Like Us.” Kanye West, TI, Jay-Z and Lil’ Wayne! This track is ridiculous. Download link below, and let us know what you guys think of this collaboration over an M.I.A. sample. perspective edit: I updated the link, so that you can snag this track. Plus I tossed in a preview link. I’m going to have to disagree with Dan, and say this track is a little dissapointing. I think my expectations were to high after hearing about the existence of this track. Still worth snagging. “S.L.U. (Swagger Like Us)”- T.I. ft Kanye West, Jay-Z & Lil Wayne To Preview Track Click Here
Turns out Beyonce’s lil sister Solange is determined not to be as wholesome as her big sister is. Solange recently recorded a track with Hip-Hop collaborator extraordinaire Lil Wayne for the song ChampagneChroniKnightCap. The song talks about getting drunk and high with a guy and getting her freak on. Solange has insinuated to those who have asked for comment on the song that she only writes about things that she knows about from her own experience. I wonder just how close to home this experience is as Solange vehemently denied rumors that she was in fact ‘involved’ with Lil Wayne last year and yet here he is on such a track as this. One thing for sure is those Knowles girls certainly do like their Carter men.
So DMX was arrested once again yesterday in a Miami Wal-Mart no less. The reason for being arrested was his failing to show up to a Phoenix Court on Wedsnesday to answer to charges of drugs and weapons possession. The glamorous life of a rapper huh, getting picked up in Wal-Mart. Also as we reported yesterday, Lil Wayne failed to show up to court as did Young Berg in New York City for various charges relating to weapons and drugs. Boys will be boys I guess Also in prison news, word is that Remy Ma and Papoose have finally tied the knot. Lisa Raye was arrested after fighting with her soon to be ex husband and driving her car through the gates to the estate, the couple once shared. He changed the locks on her and she decided nothing was getting in her way of getting into her home including a heavy set of gates.
Lil Wayne failed to show up in court this morning in Manhattan to face charges for weapon possession stemming from last year when he was pulled over after performing in NYC. Perhaps he is having issues with his grill or something but whatever ailment it is, it is preventing the Lollipop rapper from driving himself to court. On the real..who drives themselves to court when they have the biggest selling Hip-Hop album in the country so far this year? Lame excuse Weezy…very lame.
OK so it turns out that the situation between Lil Wayne and a New Orleans jeweler has been resolved amicably. Weezy had purchased a ring and a chain costing over $160,000 but had only paid the jeweler $24,000 and had agreed to pay the remainder of the balance off monthly(Obviously on a Cash Money Layaway Plan) Anyhow turns out that the agreement will see Weezy hand back over the $138,000 ring and the reminder of the cash.
Why is it that up and coming rappers often get robbed before they even get their chance to shine? Dap C, out of the UK called on a few associates to help him out with his up and coming track Ma Money. Weezy, Talib and Royce all agreed to feature on the joint produced by London producer Quincey Tones. Anyhow to cut a long story short, the verse Wayne recorded has somehow ended up on a Big Mike mixtape, before Dap C even had a chance to put the track out himself. Where is the love for the unsigned/emerging/new artists man? More to the point who gave Wayne’s verse to Big Mike in the first place. Not cool whoever it was.
