Article: LiL Wayne To Retire?

With his popularity and success still at a supreme zenith, is it really close to the end for the man who will have the number one album in the country? Back in the July/ August issue of XXL magazine, Lil Wayne declared that he was retiring soon to spend more time with his children.

“I’m bowing out still on top,” Wayne said during his interview for the cover story. “I’m bowing out still on top,” he says. “I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’ I ain’t leaving out this bitch when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’ Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Fuck!’ Yeah, nigga, I’m gone.”

“…Nah I’m fuckin wit y’all man,” he would say later. “Y’all know a nigga ain’t going nowhere till he bout 31. By 31. I’m gone by 31 shawty.”

Obviously none of his fans want to see Wayne leave the game, but what does his Young Money family think?

“As far as that retirement goes, I don’t know what he’s talking about,” YM President Mack Maine told XXLMag.com. “I’m not trying to hear that… I mean technically he can. We paved the way where Young Money the brand is gonna be so big. And he’s done so much where he can just tour. But I know his love and passion for the music…. I also know he has love and passion for his kids and family and he sacrificed a lot of this life we living. So at 30, if he says he wants to hang it up and be a family and a businessman, I wouldn’t be mad at it. He’ll be like 18, 19 close to 20 years in the game. And [have put out] that many albums. He’ll be a vet at a young age. It’s not like we’re gonna need to put out albums, it’s just the passion. Can you walk away from it?”

Well luckily, listeners still have a few years for Weezy to change his mind. As for now, reports are putting the first-week numbers for Wayne’s Tha Carter IV (released August 29) as high as 900,000 copies sold. He also has two songs on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. “How To Love” is currently number seven while the Drake assisted “She Will” debuted at number three just last week. —Shaheem Reid xxlmag


Music News: Lil Wayne Disses Jay-Z On New Track ‘It’s Good’


Weezy has told Vibe he doesn’t expect any repercussions from the song…

Lil Wayne has hit out at Jay-Z on new song, It’s Good.

The track, which features Drake and Jadakiss, is thought to be taken from Weezy’s eagerly anticipated album Tha Carter IV and sees the Lollipop hitmaker diss Jigga.

It’s Good opens with the lyrics: “You who are rich and whose troubles are few/ May come around to see my point of view/ What price the crown of the king on his throne?/ When you’re chained in the dark all alone.”

Jadakiss then spits: “I’m as real as they come, I follow the rules/ I’m still in the hood, but I probably should move/ Made enough money, I don’t f*** around/ I just felt they needed me, so I stuck around.”

Wayne’s fellow Young Money star Drake then raps: “Please pardon my brother/ He’s just angry at you n****s who don’t have your heart in your rap s***/ And got too f***in comfy, cause we still f***in hungry.”

Weezy then seems to take a swipe at Jay’s verse on Watch The Throne tune H.A.M, rapping: “Talkin’ about baby money, I got your baby money/ Kidnap your b****, get that how much you love your lady money. I know you fake n****, press your brakes n****/ I’ll take you out, that’s a date, n****.”

The 28-year old rapper has since addressed attacking Jigga on the song, telling Vibe magazine that he doesn’t expect to fall out with the Empire State Of Mind hitmaker.

Wayne revealed: “I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did. I know for a fact music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction.”

He added: “I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen before I even say [something on record]. I do know what will happen. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”

ARTICLES: LiL Wayne Should Change Single From “How To Love” To “How To Steal”

Weezy’s legal troubles continue to stack up, as another emcee accuses him of jacking a beat.

Lil Wayne’s smash hit “How to Love” may land him in hot water, as the beat was allegedly stolen.

According to TMZ, rapper Rich Rick filed a lawsuit earlier this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming that he purchased several master recordings between 2006 and 2008, among them the beat to “How to Love,” from producers Drummer Boyz.

Rick claims that Drummer Boyz pitched the same beat to Wayne in November 2010, which Wayne acquired in exchange for a 35% royalty agreement.

Rick is suing Wayne, Drummer Boyz, and others for breach of contract, fraud, and other claims.

The claim finds itself at the bottom of a laundry list of lawsuits aimed at Lil Wayne. Among them are numerous producers, including Jim Jonsin, Bangladesh, and Deezle, all of whom have claimed Wayne didn’t pay them for their beats.~HIPHOPDX


Music News: NICKI MINAJ FIRES DIDDY AS HER MANAGER by Latifah Muhammad


Nicki Minaj wants to take her career to the next level and she doesn’t want any help from Sean “Diddy” Combs. Minaj was rumored to have signed a management deal with Diddy sometime last year, but it looks like she’s skipped out on the hip-hop mogul and has gone with management company Hip Hop Since 1978 instead.

XXL.com is reporting that the Queens native fired Diddy because he wasn’t “hands on enough,” and signed with the management company owned by Gee Roberson and Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua. Ironically, Roberson and Joshua once worked on Lil’ Kim’s 2005 debut, ‘The Naked Truth,’ when they were employed as A&Rs for Atlantic Records. Kim and Minaj have been engaged in a verbal beef for the last year or so, with the brunt of the blows coming from the Queen Bee, who feels that the 26-year-old jacked her style.

Past history aside, Minaj’s new representation has a pretty good track record, which includes managing Kanye West, Young Jeezy and her Young Money family members Drake and Lil Wayne. According to sources, despite her new business decision, her relationship with Diddy appears to be in tact as the two parted ways amicably.

This is the most recent shake-up in Minaj’s management team, but not the first time that she has hired and fired people on her team. The rapper was originally represented by Debra Atney, mother to Waka Flocka Flame, whom she fired in 2010.
