  1. Sarcastic Sounds, a 20-year-old producer from Toronto, recently chopped it up with DJ Booth for an interview. During their conversation (read below), Sarcastic Sounds recalled how the very first rap song he heard was Lil Wayne‘s “Got Money” single featuring T-Pain. The producer also discussed how he was approached to create Wayne‘s “Mahogany” beat on the Funeral album that involved some help from Mannie Fresh, as well as how he reacted to hearing it for the first time when it leaked on YouTube! What was the first rap song you remember hearing? It was “Got Money” by Lil Wayne, ironically. My brother showed me [the video for] it and some Eminem videos. I thought it was cool that Wayne had a shirt that said “He Raps,” and T-Pain had a shirt that said “He Sangs.” I must’ve been about eight years old. Talk to me about being approached to produce Lil Wayne’s “Mahogany.” That was the career moment for me. I’d always seen myself as a hip-hop producer first and foremost, and making beats for rappers I loved was the end goal. The funny thing is this happened completely separate from my whole lo-fi thing. I could’ve had no records out, and “Mahogany” still would’ve happened. I used to do beat battles when I was younger. There’s a big one in Toronto called Battle of The Beat Makers I had been doing for a few years at this point. The last one I did was when I was 18, and one of the judges was Mannie Fresh. I played the “Mahogany” beat onstage during the battle, and [afterward], someone he was with approached me and said Mannie wanted to meet up. We met up the next day in Toronto and chopped it up for a little bit. A couple of months later, he flew me out to his place in Houston, and [we] made music there for a week. It was a few other producers and me. It was crazy to be with one of the most legendary hip-hop producers ever just eating breakfast [laughs]. After I left, I didn’t hear from him for about eight months. Right before [Lil Wayne’s Funeral] dropped, one of Mannie’s representatives hit me up and said Wayne selected the beat. I tend not to believe stuff until I’ve heard the music. I didn’t hear anything until the album dropped, and I assumed I didn’t make the cut. Then, an hour before it dropped, I got a call and was told my beat made the album. What was your first reaction when you heard the finished song? I first heard the song an hour before the album came out because it leaked on YouTube, and I couldn’t believe it. I heard the lighter flick at the beginning, and it was the most insane shit ever. I was jumping up and down and talking to myself and saying it out loud. I heard the record at the same time as everybody else. It was a completely surreal feeling, and it was the most amazing thing ever.
  2. As promised a few days ago, here is the very first single from 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne‘s upcoming ColleGrove 2 joint album. The song, which is called “Money Maker“, is actually categorized as Chainz featuring Wayne, so I would expect ColleGrove 2 to be similar to the first ColleGrove project with the majority of songs being from Chainz that feature Wayne. You can stream the Playa Pizzle-produced track that samples Guy’s “Piece Of My Love” record after the jump below! What are your thoughts on it?
  3. For #ThrowbackThursday today, here is a Lil Wayne freestyle and interview that he did with Pete Finch back in the early 2000s. During their conversation, Wayne revealed what his very first hustle was, the longest he has ever rapped without stopping, where his “Tha Carter” album name comes from, what made him change as a person, a message for upcoming music artists, if he has any problems with Nas after freestyling over the “Ether” beat on SQ1, and more. You can check out this full throwback video after the jump below that also includes him spitting a verse from his “BM J.R.” song!
  4. DaBaby has took to social media to show what one of his recording studios at his house looks like. The studio includes portraits of the North Carolina rapper’s idols Lil Wayne, Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G., Kanye West, Jay-Z, Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson, Gucci Mane, 50 Cent, Jeezy, T.I., Snoop Dogg, and himself. You can view some pictures and footage of how artist Patrick Hairston painted this masterpiece for DaBaby after the jump below! What do you think of it?
  5. According to UrbanBridgez, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne will be releasing the first official single from their forthcoming Collegrove 2 album this week! We’ve already heard snippets of “Do It Without Ya” and “La La La“, and now the hip-hop duo will be dropping “Money Maker” as the first single this Friday (August 7th). Wayne and Tity Boi also hinted at shooting a music video for this song on the finale episode of “Young Money Radio”. Are you looking forward to hearing “Money Maker” on streaming services?
  6. We have previously seen two parts of Turk‘s interview with Mikey T The Movie Star from Report Card Radio, and now we can check out another part that is all about how he brought Lil Wayne and Kodak Black together. Turk reveals that Kodak was always a big fan of the Hot Boys and he looked up to himself and Tunechi, as well as shares the story of when he reached out to Black after he said he wanted to fight Tune to prove he is the “best rapper alive”. The YNT founder also discussed how Weezy didn’t have any problems with Kodak Black as he jumped on the “Fuk How It Turn Out” g-mix even though he knew Kodak was already on it. However, Turk believes that he has been blackballed as how is he not supposed to win with a collaboration like that?
  7. Yesterday before the Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros baseball game, a new Lil Wayne song premiered on FOX. There aren’t too many details about this track as of right now (it should be released soon), but we do know that it was produced by Monsta Beatz. You check out a MLB promo video that plays a snippet of the record where we can hear the beat and Wayne vocals before it cuts off after the jump below! Are you liking the sound of it?

  8. Here is the official music video for a new Lil Wayne song called “Thug Life” featuring his Young Money artists Jay Jones and Gudda Gudda. The video, which was directed by Olivia Cohen and Spanish Mike, was filmed at the Diamond Supply Co. indoor skate park in Los Angeles, California back in February, 2019. There are cameos from Lil Twist, Marley G, Poppy Holden, Yaj, T@, Andre Colbert, Tyreek Morrison, Jereme Knibbs, and Yosef “YoYo” Ratleff! What are your thoughts on the track and visual?
  9. I have chosen a remix of a Busta Rhymes song called “Arab Money” featuring Lil Wayne, Ron Browz, Diddy, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, and Akon for this week’s “Feature Friday” edition. The original version of this Ron Browz-produced single appears on Busta‘s eighth studio album, Back On My B.S., which was released back in 2009. “Calendar say get money everyday, my smile look like iced-out Perrier; Bury me a G and tell my kids that I was, now jump into your grave, do you dig what I dug?” You can watch the music video for the “Arab Money” remix below that was directed by Rik Cordero.

  10. During a new episode of the “Impaulsive” podcast, Jake Paul has revealed that Lil Wayne will be performing live at Mike Tyson‘s comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr. “But in the meantime, you can call me young Roy Jones Jr. fightin’ the drugs and gun charge” The American YouTuber, who will also be fighting on the undercard against former NBA player Nate Robinson, mentioned that their will even be live performances from Eminem and possibly Post Malone. “Like motherfuck all y’all; Mr. Mike Tyson flow, uppercut all y’all; Step into my ring bitches, ding-ding bitches; Click-clack pow-pow ping-ping bitches” Tyson‘s long-awaited comeback exhibition match (he last fought in 2005) against Roy will take place on September 12th in Los Angeles and it will cost $49.99 to watch on pay per view. You can check out Jake give up the news in a video below! “It’s really just gonna be an amazing night. I don’t know… I think Lil Wayne performing, Eminem performing… and I could be wrong here, but I think Post Malone performing. And the list goes on with that by the way.”
  11. I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the 1998 Hot Boys issue of Murder Dog magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today. In his interview, Weezy spoke on Cash Money Records, the Hot Boys, what makes each of the members unique, joining B.G. aka Lil Doogie when he was going by the name of Baby D to create The B.G.z group, their True Story album, and leaving The B.G.z by his mother Cita’s request after he shot himself. Tune also talked about Lil Slim bringing him to Cash Money, his debut solo studio album Tha Block Is Hot, what made him want to first start rapping, New Orleans, school, his daughter Reginae Carter, having a song called “Fuck The World” even though this was a time when he didn’t curse in his music, losing his daddy Rabbit to some haters, how everything changed for him when Rabbit died, and much more!

  12. According to the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA), DJ Khaled‘s “Jealous” single featuring Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and Big Sean was certified Gold last month on June 30th. This means that the Tay Keith-produced song, which appears on Khaled‘s Father Of Asahd album, has been purchased and streamed over 500,000 times since it was first released in May, 2019. Congratulations to everyone involved with “Jealous“! Do you still play the collaboration?
  13. Here is another part of Turk‘s interview with Mikey T The Movie Star from Report Card Radio and this one is mainly about Young Buck‘s time with Cash Money Records. Turk revealed when he first met the Nashville rapper, how Lil Wayne did not like Buck because Birdman used to always make him freestyle everywhere they went, and says he believes Buck is the reason that Wayne started to freestyle because he is a competitive guy. You can check out everything that the YNT founder had to say on this situation in the video after the jump below!
  14. In this post, you can get a behind the scenes look at the music video for Jack Harlow‘s “What’s Poppin” remix featuring Lil Wayne, DaBaby and Tory Lanez. The visual was directed by Eif Rivera and on set was a 24ft telescopic crane that was used for Jack and Wayne‘s scenes. You can view some more behind the scenes photos and footage from the “What’s Poppin (Remix)” video shoot below! Pic credit: Martin Myaka and Urban Wyatt.
  15. Kanye West took to social media yesterday to give praise to Lil Wayne. Firstly, Kanye tweeted “PIANO TRAP LIL WAYNE“ along with some UFO and alien emojis before then tweeting how he believes both Drake and Nicki Minaj should have Weezy open up every one of their albums. You can check out Yeezy‘s compliments for Tunechi on Twitter after the jump below! I wonder when we will next see a Tune and Ye collaboration?
