Lil Wayne is easily one of the most down to Earth rappers… With success comes hate and there are a lot of people that like to hate on Weezy. Although he’s not my favorite artist, I make damn sure I listen to all of his material when it drops. You see him everywhere, he’s with Skip Bayless on ESPN winning the Skippy Awards, he does bowling for charity with Chris Paul and Nelly, he’s touring all the time, he doesn’t sleep much, and here he is after a show doing a drop in at the Stakepark of Tampa… dope. Obviously the “Sorry 4 the Wait Mixtape” has been out for awhile and you should have that already… Weezy stays in the hip hop news all the time – in fact, he’s getting sued for $15 million for allegedly stealing the smash hit song “BedRock”…
Lil Wayne Drops in at SkatePark of Tampa, Florida (Video)
Here’s what they had to say about the footage:
“After I left at about 4am this morning while Weezy and crew were still skating, Porpe stayed behind to take care of them and close up the Park. He filmed Lil Wayne saying some nice words about Skatepark of Tampa plus some footage of him dropping in at the Bowl. That sure looked like a fun 5am session. Thanks for stopping by, Wayne. Thanks for filming and shooting photos, Porpe. More photos at skateparkoftampa.com/weezy“… Click here to read more.. »
Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame are going to finally release the “Ferrari Boyz album” on August 9, 2011 despite the fact that on the recent Gucci Mane Writing on the Wall 2 mixtape he says that it will be in stores on August 2nd. Either way, I’m just glad that this album is going to finally see the light of day and isn’t going to be pushed back again. I plan on writing a full length review of the album when it drops so I’m not going to go into too much detail as of now regarding the project. Just know that this was a project I have been looking forward to for a long time now and I’m pretty jacked up to know that it’s going to be released. UPDATE: Check out my Ferrari Boyz album review!
Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka – Ferrari Boyz Album Artwork (Official)
If you have been following Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, and 1017 Brick Squad, then you know this is going to be a huge release. They have some crazy production from Southside a.k.a. Southside on the Track. As of now, you can check out the Waka Flocka Flame Du Flocka Rant mixtape and hear the songs “Mud Musik,” “Young Niggaz,” and you should have already heard “Ferrari Boyz” which is their title track. Plus the song “She Be Puttin On” is already on iTunes for purchase and it leaked on the internet a long time ago. Click here to read more.. »
Roscoe Dash has been one of my favorite artists in the game since I heard him back in 2008 and I was immediately impressed with what I was hearing. He’s from Zone 4 Atlanta and has really made a huge impact on hip hop music since his emergence. Initially, I got him mixed up with the trio of Travis Porter, who have a similar sound, but they are distinctly different if you listen to both groups (which I do).
Roscoe Dash – Ready Set Go Album Artwork
Anyways, it’s been a lot of fun to see an artist like Roscoe Dash go from not really having much to his name to getting on tracks with Kanye West, Waka Flocka Flame, Big Sean, Juicy J, Wale, B.o.B, Three 6 Mafia, and Soulja Boy (which you probably knew from the “All The Way Turnt Up” track). Travis Porter stole the “All The Way Turnt Up” track from him and promoted it under their name so people were really confused as to whose track it originally was – it was Roscoe Dash’s track (so if you’re a total noob and have your version by Travis Porter, please leave this website now and stay ignorant).
What’s Up with the Roscoe Dash Ready Set Go (Pre-Album Promo Mixtape)?
I wanted to let you all know that the Roscoe Dash “Ready Set Go album” promo has been floating around the internet for awhile now. I’m honestly not sure why some people are calling it the “Ready Set Go mixtape” because it’s really more like a promotional album. I’m not sure if he even intended for it to be released, but it’s been out for awhile now and being the huge fan that I am, I got a copy a couple years back. Since I was absolutely pissed off that his album was never released, I pretty much had been playing the promo album as well as his old mixtapes for the past year or so and they really haven’t gotten old at all.

As many of you know, the Royce Da 5’9” “Success Is Certain album” is up next for him. The album is scheduled to be released on August 9, 2011 – so it may be competing with the “Watch The Throne album” for sales if that happens to be released when rumor has it. Anyways, in case you didn’t already go out and pick up a copy of the “Hell: The Sequel album” that he did with Eminem as their old school Bad Meets Evil duo, you should probably get that first. So what can we all expect from the Success Is Certain album though? Is it going to be packed with classic tracks?

1. Legendary (feat. Travis Barker) 2. Writer’s Block (feat. Eminem) 3. Merry Go Round 4. Where My Money 5. ER (feat. Kid Vishis) 6. On The Boulevard (feat. Nottz & Adonis) 7. I Ain’t Coming Down 8. Security 9. Second Place 10. My Own Planet (feat. Joe Budden) 11. I’ve Been Up I’ve Been Dow
As you already should know, the new Kanye West and Jay-Z “Watch The Throne album” is the next most anticipated thing in the world of hip hop music. They released H.A.M. (Hard as a Motherfucker) back in the day and now the project is finally going to see the light of day. Anyways, the official project will feature a total of 10 tracks and will be able to be purchased on iTunes as well as through other outlets sometime this late summer. The official project is rumored to be scheduled to have an early August release date, but you and I know that tons of rappers set a release date or give their fans an idea of when it’s going to be released and then push the album back. UPDATE: Read my official “Watch The Throne album review.”
Watch The Throne Album Art (Official)
I don’t think that they’re going to pull a Dr. Dre move with this one (e.g. never release their album), but I wouldn’t be totally shocked if for some reason they decided to push it back. Below is the official track listing and above is the official Watch The Throne album artwork. I personally wasn’t that impressed with the artwork, but am not going to complain either, I don’t think it’s “bad” per se, but just looks like a fairly elegant design. I was more impressed with Kanye West’s artwork for “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” as well as the artwork for the single “H.A.M.” Click here to read more.. »
Here’s the entire interview that went down with Jim Cramer from CNBC’s “Mad Money” on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show.” I really like how Jon Stewart wasn’t afraid to call out the financial advisers for certain networks like CNBC. I do think that it is unwise to watch financial shows for advice, esp. given the current economy… I don’t trust any of those TV fiends with mah dinero. And honestly, I think the majority of financial advisers are MUCH WORSE than Cramer. Somebody’s gotta take the heat though. Good interview here by Stew – hit the JUMP (below) for Part 2 & Part 3!
A new album by J. Dilla is coming this summer on Nature Sounds and is set for a June 2nd 2009 release date. The album will be executive produced by Dilla’s mom, Ms. Yancey a.k.a. “Ma Dukes!” Read below for additional information that was shot my way!
By now most everyone is familiar with the story of musical legend J Dilla. The quiet, prolific producer collaborated with everyone from Eryka Badu to Common to Janet Jackson to Prince. Dilla was just beginning to capitalize on his cult status when he sadly passed at age 32 due to Lupus-related complications. Jay Stay Paid is a 25 track collection of unreleased Dilla beats mixed and arranged by Pete Rock. While mostly instrumental, “J$P” also offers a few guests vocals from artists that Dilla worked with or admired including Black Thought of The Roots, MF DOOM, and M.O.P.
