Lil Wayne has his lawyers working over time to get him off of his long time label Cash Money. Lil Wayne has placed his beef with Birdman on wax. Check out his lyrics below.
“Tha Carter gon’ be late so I cooked up a tape,” he says in the intro, “The garden’s full of snakes so I had to escape.”
“Who kept this shit together? Nigga, me, that’s who,” he raps in the opening bars, “Who was there when niggas left? Nigga, me, that’s who / Cash Money is an army, I’m a one man army / And if them niggas comin’ for me, I’m goin’ out like Tony.”
“Now I don’t want no problems, I just want my money,” he adds in the verse before referencing his alienation from the label:
“Birdman Jr., more like Ugly Duckling.”
The remaining duo created a kickstarter campaign on Monday January 19 to fund recording their fifth and final studio album. Fans helped TLC more than reach their goal of $150,000 in just two days. At the time of this writing, TLC has over $185,000 in pledge money. Pop star Katy Perry contributed $5,000. TLC hasn’t recorded an album since group member Lisa “Lefteye” Lopes lost her life.
Check out their kickstarter video below
Here’s where TLC says the money is going
Every penny we raise during this campaign will go towards MAKING this final album together with you! The initial goal of $150,000 will go towards a writing session in the studio with a producer and engineer. The money beyond that will go to booking music producers, writing sessions, mixing sessions, recording sessions, and SO much more.
The donations come with rewards. For example donations of $500 will receive autographed lyrics for “Waterfall” and a special thank you note. A pledge of $2500 will get you into the exclusive listening party once the album is complete. If you drop $5,000 you get to choose a slumber party with either Chili or T-Boz. In case your wondering, Katy Perry didn’t claim her reward of a sleepover.
If you don’t want to spend your tax return money you can donate less than $10.00 and get to preview a exclusive kickstarter remix.

This week has become a battle of the bikini bodies between Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian. It all started when Amber Rose attempted to brake the internet by releasing sexy photos in a very revealing bikini from a Miami balcony.
Kim Kardashian not to be outshined by Rose uploaded photos of herself wearing a fur bikini against a snowcovered backdrop.
Who won this battle?
Snoop Dogg’s oldest son Corde aka Spanky Danky became a first time father to his new born son Zion. A proud grandpaw Snoop announced the news on Instagram
“Zion. Wit his uncle and dad. Can’t wait to meet u baby dogg!! My 1st grandson!! The saga continues”
Snoop 2nd oldest son 17 year old Cordell Broadus is gearing up to play college football. Broadus is the star wide receiver for Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas, the No. 1 ranked high school football team in the country.
“The other schools I’m most interested in are TCU, West Virginia and Oregon State,” Broadus said. “I think I will visit all of those schools after my season is over. Those schools are showing me a lot of love along with ASU. I want to learn as much as I can and then make my decision.”
“These the type emails I turn down. F-ck JAYZ Sh-t real out here #AboutBillions What the f-ck is 40 million for 5 years ha somebody go tell JAYZ to suck my d-ck with a elephant tongue WE GOOOOOD!!!!!!” Adrian wrote on Facebook after receiving a 5 year $40 million offer from RocNation. Instead of having his lawyers serve RocNation with a counter offer, Adrian went into attack mode and unleashed some very harsh remarks.
Tmz sports interviewed the high profile boxer and this what he had to say…
“I mean, you know, they sent an email whatever,” Broner said. “You know, Jay Z didn’t do it literally. They shot the email or whatever, I wasn’t happy with it. The capacity of the contract was $40 million for five years, that’s just bullshit…Like I wanted to tell him, and hopefully this get to him, stop sending your workers to come talk to me. I’m a boss, man. Bosses talk to bosses.”
Many felt Adrian made a wrong decision by turning down the offer.
“I mean, it is what it is,” he added. “At the end of the day, I felt disrespected. If you gon’ come to me and tell me that I’m gonna fight two times a year getting $8 million a year for five years straight. You got me fucked up. I’m not old. I’m scheduled to fight four times this year.”
“I mean, I don’t want to shoot no numbers out there,” he said. “Like I wanted to tell him, and hopefully this get to him, stop sending your workers to come talk to me. I’m a boss, man. Bosses talk to bosses.”
Adrian received an email from his friend boxing champion Floyd Mayweather because he felt Adrian was out of line. Adrian has offered an apology to Jay Z and Rihanna. Read below
“One of the main reasons why I was wrong was, you never invite another man to another man’s private part. That’s just ridiculous,” he said. “I was caught up in the moment, and I wanna apologize to Jay for that. I’m a man at the end of the day, and I’m wrong, and I can admit when I’m wrong.”
“I never should’ve said ‘Forget Rihanna.’” he said. “I said it in a more explicit way, but I just wanna say I’m wrong to the public. I’m sorry and if Jay wanna talk to me, you can get in touch with me and holla at me, we’ll talk about it. I just had to get it off my chest as a man. Cause my big homie… he really called me and told me I was wrong. It was only right I come forward. 100.
Rapper 50 cent even chimed in and said “That wasn’t a good idea to say that. 40 million, he should take it,” 50 Cent said to TMZ.

Today – New Years Day, 2015 – one of the most powerful and unexpected music collaborations in modern history has been released exclusively on the iTunes music store: “Only One.” The single features the undeniable talent of two musical and cultural icons: Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
It will be the first publicly available recording from what has become a prolific musical collaboration between these two legendary artists.
In early 2014, Paul McCartney and Kanye West first began working together in a small bungalow in Los Angeles. The process that would result in “Only One” began with a simple brainstorming session between the two: With McCartneyimprovising on the keyboards and Kanye vocally sketching and shaping ideas in a stream-of-consciousness riff.
When they played back the recording afterward, something remarkable happened. Kanye sat there with his family, holding his daughter North on his lap, and listened to his vocals, singing, “Hello, my only one . . . ” And in that moment, not only could he not recall having sung those words, but he realized that perhaps the words had never really come from him.
The process of artistic creation is one that does not involve thinking, but often channeling. And he understood in that moment that his late mother, Dr. Donda West, who was also his mentor, confidante, and best friend, had spoken through him that day.
“My mom was singing to me, and through me to my daughter,” he said, astonished.
The small group in the room kept listening: “Hello my Only One…just like the morning sun…you’ll keep on rising till the sky knows your name.”
To some, Kanye’s insight didn’t immediately register. But then he explained: The name Kanye, which his mother had chosen, means “only one.”
And then it dawned on everyone there: Something powerful and undeniable had occurred through the power of music and of letting go. A message had been passed down through generations.
And so it is that there was only one song that could be released first from this groundbreaking collaboration: “Only One,” an anthem of positive reflection, hopefulness and joyous celebration to usher in a New Year.
There is only one you. There is only one life. And there is only one 2015. “Only One” is available exclusively on the iTunes music store in 119 countries exclusively for one week. Enjoy. And Happy New Year.
