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.”

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.
Minaj is following in Beyonce and Jay z footprints by releasing a 16 minutes short movie featuring All Things Go, The Crying Game, I lied and Grand Piano.
In the short film Nicki must choose between two relationships after a car accident.

When it came to the topic of her longtime ex boyfriend and best friend Safaree Samuels, Nicki became very emotional. She also shut down rumors she dating Meek Mill and discussed The Pink Print. Read a few quotes below
“My relationship was based off of love,” she said. “And there still is nothing but love there. This is not some person I picked up off the street. This is somebody I grew up with. Like I don’t even know how I’m gonna function without that person in my life. I’ve never lived my life as a famous person without him.”
“I don’t think people realize it’s not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life,” she told Angie. “It is something that I am dealing with publicly and it’s not easy. I’m also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn’t mean the world to me and still doesn’t mean the world to me. I’m just figuring it out.”
“If I wasn’t a rapper, we would have children, be married, and be living happily ever after. And that’s what we’re both sad about because we know that this shit is what did it.”
“It’s just a sad time, because for the first time in my life, I realize everything I thought? It’s changing right in front of my face. I didn’t plan this. It’s just happening. People keep talking to me, asking me questions, and I can’t really answer certain questions because it’s still happening, right now and I’m still goin’ through the motions of like, what am I gonna do? You don’t just stop loving someone, you don’t stop caring for someone, you don’t just stop worrying about them. Especially when you grew up together. And he really, really held me down in the beginning. [He] was the perfect person.”
