  1. Just over a month after going Gold, Lil Wayne‘s latest album, Tha Carter V, has reached Platinum status. This means that C5 has been streamed and purchased over 1 million times since it was first released at midnight on September 27th. Congratulations to Wayne and everyone else involved with the project! Don’t forget, we can also be expecting a Tha Carter V music video to premiere soon!
  2. Later today, Travis Scott will be hosting his first ever annual Astroworld Festival at NRG Park in Houston, Texas. As well as Travis, there will also be performances from Lil Wayne, Post Malone, Young Thug, Trippie Redd, Rae Sremmurd, Metro Boomin, Gunna, Virgil Abloh, Smokepurpp, and more. You can check out the full lineup for this year’s Astroworld Festival, which is already sold out, on the flyer above! Do you think Scott and Weezy will perform “Let It Fly” off Tha Carter V live together for the first time tonight?
  3. Just like on Tuesday night, Drake brought out Lil Wayne once again during the second Miami, Florida stop of his “Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour” on Wednesday night. Weezy joined his Young Money artist Drizzy to perform “Steady Mobbin’” and “Uproar” live for everyone in attendance at the American Airlines Arena. You can check out some footage of the two of them performing live after the jump below! How good would a “Drake vs. Lil Wayne” tour part 2 be? Photo credit: Prince Williams/ATLPics.net.
  4. Earlier this week, Lil Wayne shot a music video for a song off his Tha Carter V album in Miami, Florida with directors and producers Jay Rodriguez, Georgio Rodriguez and JEi4FliX. The upcoming green screen visual will also include a camel after Weezy‘s stylist Marisa Flores shared a photo of herself on set with the animal and a caption reading: “@LilTunechi can we have animals on set all the time”. We know it’s a video shoot for a C5 track after it was confirmed in the Instagram comments by JEi4FliX, who also wrote on social media that “this #musicvideo is one for the #history books”. Wayniacs, what record do you think Tunechi shot a video for?
  5. Lil Wayne – Amen (Pre Fight Prayer)

    After first hearing about this last month, here is a new Lil Wayne track called “Amen (Pre Fight Prayer)“. It is the intro on the official Creed II film soundtrack, which will be available on all streaming platforms tonight at midnight. You can listen to the Mike WiLL Made-It produced song below! What are your thoughts on Weezy‘s “Amen“?
  6. Tory Lanez recently participated in an interview with Vibe Magazine and spoke on his upcoming collaboration with Lil Wayne. After first hearing about it 3 weeks ago, Tory revealed in his conversation that his “Talk To Me” remix featuring Wayne will be released this week. The Canadian music artist also mentioned that it’s the song he is vibing to the most right now! Do you think it will drop tonight? Maybe tomorrow? You’ve been moving steadfastly in the industry since 2014. What song or collaboration would you say is your favorite song you ever put out–or haven’t put out? I don’t know. I don’t know about the best song ever or anything like that. You don’t have one song you vibe with the most? I mean as of now it’s the “Talk To Me” remix I got with Lil Wayne but nobody knows that I have the song [Laughs]. Are you gonna put it out? You can’t say that and not put it out. I’m gonna put it out this week, but I’ve been holding it for mad long so it’s been like what I’ve been vibing to.
  7. At midnight on September 27th until the early hours of September 28th, Lil Wayne celebrated his 36th birthday and the release of his Tha Carter V album with a party dubbed “Wayne’s World” at Hubble Studio in Los Angeles, California. There were plenty of special guests at the soirée including Stevie Wonder, Chris Brown, Ashanti, Big Sean, Trippie Redd, Wiz Khalifa, Chevy Woods, Reginae Carter, Rae Sremmurd, Ray J, Timbaland, Shaggy, Draya Michelle, Trey Songz, Tiffany Haddish, and his Young Money artists. The event let guests eat traditional New Orleans food catered by Trap Kitchen, smoke marijuana, and show off their skateboarding skills on a skate ramp. There were also two goats in attendance at the party to pay tribute to the actual G.O.A.T. himself before he was presented with a three-tier birthday cake. Check out plenty of footage and pictures below!
  8. Last night, Drake brought out his Young Money boss Lil Wayne during a stop on his “Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour” in Miami, Florida. Weezy came out at the American Airlines Arena to perform “Steady Mobbin’” before then performing his “Uproar” single off Tha Carter V live for everyone in attendance. You can watch some footage of the live performance after the jump below, which includes Drizzy calling Tunechi the “Greatest Motherfucking Rapper Of All Time”! Photo credit: Amanda Barona.
  9. Lil Wayne has been announced as a headliner for 97.9 WJLB’s “Big Show 2018” along with Yo Gotti, Moneybagg Yo, BlocBoy JB, Tee Grizzley, and Sada Baby on December 27th. The concert will take place from 7:30PM at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan just after Christmas. Wayne is expected to perform songs off his Tha Carter V album. If you wish to attend the show, tickets will go on sale this Friday (November 16th) from 10:00AM at Ticketmaster and the Little Caesars Arena XFINITY box office!
  10. First things first, before everyone complains I am aware this video is over a month old, but now that Lil Wayne news is slowing down again I will be posting up everything that came out around the release of Tha Carter V, which you haven’t seen on LilWayneHQ yet. On the night that C5 dropped, Chance The Rapper uploaded a video of himself to his social media thanking Weezy for dropping the album and revealed he kicked everyone out of his studio, so that he could have a private listening session of the project. Chance also thanked Tunechi for getting him his first ever No. 1 single with “No Problem“, for getting him his first ever GRAMMY award for “Best Rap Performance“, and for teaching him so much. You can check it out after the jump below!
  11. Both Birdman and Young Thug have asked a Cobb County State Court judge to issue a gag order in the lawsuit involving them with the Lil Wayne tour bus shooting in Atlanta back in 2015. For those who are unaware, a gag order is a legal order by courts or governments that keeps information from being made public. Baby and Thugger want to silence Alvin Lewis, and stop him and his lawyer from speaking to the media about the case. Lewis was the driver of Tunechi‘s tour bus on the night when it was shot up by Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe. He is currently suing Stunna, Thug, Peewee, Cash Money Records, and Young Money over the incident, and believes that the shooting was “gang-related.” According to The Blast, the judge has yet to rule and the case is currently on hold. Right now, Roscoe is behind bars after being sentenced to 10 years in jail, but the lawsuit is about to reopened after new evidenced surfaced, which could expose Birdman and Young Thug for having something to do with trying to kill Weezy!
  12. Seconds before performing “Can’t Be Broken“ off Tha Carter V on “Saturday Night Live” together (November 10th), Halsey got a tattoo on her lower bicep that was handwritten by Lil Wayne. Taking to social media, Halsey shared a photo of her new ink that has the words “sins” and “forgiveness” along with a scale, which was done by artist Jonathan Valena aka JonBoy. The tatt is a reference to Tunechi‘s “on my Libra scale I’m weighin’ sins and forgiveness” lyric from his “She Will” song featuring Drake off his Tha Carter IV album. Halsey revealed that the inspiration behind her new tattoo is from her and Tune both being Libras and share the same astrological sign – scales. She even brought up a tweet up that she wrote back in 2014: “I’m a libra and so is lil Wayne and that’s all you’ll ever need to know about me.” You can check out what Weezy drew for the New Jersey singer and songwriter which she got inked right before their “SNL” live performance after the jump below! What are your thoughts on it? Photo credit: Rosalind O’Connor.
  13. Lil Wayne appeared on “Saturday Night Live” last night to perform 2 songs off his Tha Carter V album and to also participate in a skit. After being introduced by host Liev Schreiber (see below), Tunechi performed “Can’t Be Broken” with special guest Halsey and “Uproar” live with Swizz Beatz. For the “Permission” skit, Weezy rapped with the Booty Kings (Chris Redd, Kenan Thompson), Uncle Butt (Pete Davidson), and Future about how much they love women and their consent!
  14. As a surprise, Lil Wayne has released 3 brand new bonus tracks on iTunes from his latest album, Tha Carter V. One of these songs is “In This House” featuring Gucci Mane, another one is “What About Me” featuring Post Malone, which was initially supposed to be the case instead of Sosamann, and the final one is “Hasta La Vista“, which is produced by Tay Keith and is different than this version we heard earlier this year. You can stream all 3 new Weezy records after the jump below! What are your thoughts on them?
  15. A couple of days ago, Vice Versa released their Backwoods & Big Shots mixtape online that is hosted by DJ $keme. Throughout the tape, the Young Money duo’s boss Lil Wayne can be heard talking. The songs that Wayne appears on are: #1 at the beginning, #3 at the end, #8 at the beginning, and #10 at the beginning. You can listen to Poppy Holden and Yaj‘s new Backwoods & Big Shots project after the jump below! What are your thoughts on this latest tape from the YM camp?
