The Lil Wayne vs. Baby Beef

Lil-Wayne-AwkwardAccording to TMZ,  Wayne is suing Baby for $51 million! Not only is he asking for the cash money, he wants a multi-million dollar advance and part ownership of all Young Money recordings as well as split copyright ownership of all Young Money recordings, including Drake’s and Nicki Minaj’s catalogs.

Reportedly, the lawsuit states that the $8 million initially stated came from Baby promising Wayne that money when he started making “Tha Carter V” back in 2013. He was also promised an additional $2 million once he completed the project.

Money is the root of all evil as shown in this relationship between two men who once considered each other father and son. Hopefully this will end in the likes of both parties.

VIBE: Tyga

Tyga7-600x337http://www.vibe.com/article/digital-cover-tyga-king-unchained

There’s been a lot of stress on the crew’s love for Tyga’s space over the years. It was 2007 when Lil Wayne recruited the Compton native to Young Money Entertainment. That was two years before Nicki Minaj and Drake blossomed into the labels big money brands.

His new album to release The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty has been held back and Tyga is not happy. The day after his VIBE cover shoot, he threatened to leak the LP via Twitter if Young Money didn’t give him a release date.

YMCMB president Mack Maine shot back through his own tweet, warning Tyga to take ownership of his shortcomings. Days later, he released “40 Mill,” one of the many Kanye West-produced cuts from his new album. He might now have gotten the attention he was looking for.

I am totally rooting for Tyga! Not only did he go to my high school Gardena, but I like his style and he has proven to be very much so driven when it comes to his future. He’s started his own boxer line called Crisp, see the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CRISPBoxersCo and of course  his clothing line http://www.lastkings.co/

Nicki Minaj and Mona-Scott Young Talk Myx Fusions Moscato Partnership

I am not a huge fan of Nicki Minaj since she turned pop and the downgrading of fellow black women. But, I am a fan of successful Black Women and I am glad she is representing a black success in a positive lens.

Who doesn’t fantasize and dream of the lifestyles these success women are living…? I would love to have all the things Miss Kicki has such easy access to. Just make sure it is done with gratitude, respect for self and others along with authenticity.

Just heard of Nicki’s line which is carried in Kmart, quite impressed with what she said in the Part II of this video.

I will give Nicki this, she is definitely a personality, she has made a name for herself, she had stood out from most music artists and she made her way. She is a story of success. In hopes of this black woman keeping her fans at heart and giving some more of her earlier days hip hop music.

Rick Ross Raps About Committing Date Rape In New Song

Rick Ross Raps About Committing Date Rape In New Song

In the new song, “You Don’t Even Know It,” by Rocko, Future, and Rick Ross, the self-proclaimed boss drops a troubling lyric that shows he knows very little about rape.

Just after he opens his verse, Ross raps:

“Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”

So it’s okay for these black men to brag about about raping women who are too high off of drugs and alcohol to consent to, or not to sex (?)…. What’s sad about this is, some women will keep listening to this ish that isn’t even music, and say, “Hey, this is my song”….

Music that promotes sexism and violence destroys the young minds of our future. When will these artists be put to the shame they deserve?

LiL Wayne top story in the news- Is he worth that slot?

Rapper LiL Wayne has been suffering from seizures for the past few months and has been hospitalized at Cedar Sinai. My sister works at the hospital LiL Wayne is being treated, but is unable to give details due to HIPAA. As know from many sources available to the public, it has overly exaggerated that he was on his death bed.

According to sources, Weezy overdosed on his beloved, very dangerous sizzurp, and is only JUST coming down from the high!

His latest tweet on Mar 15th:
Lil Wayne WEEZY F ‏@LilTunechi
I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.

My question is > How is this headline news?
We’ve got our brothas & sistas dying in the Motherland Africa everyday, but this rapper who has no regard for his black women and fellow black men is on the front line with HIS OWN INDUCED SICKNESS.

His lyrics are full of words promoted to disregard any respect a woman is deserving of.

His latest song: Love Me featuring Drake & Future shows exactly how these men feel and think of when it comes to the opposite sex. I wonder what these women are thinking about, or lack thee of, when being featured in such a music video. Is it something they would sing along to? Is the paycheck enough to make them not think and refuse to stand for woman-hood..?

The song includes lines stating:
Long as my Bi+@he3 love me.
These 304’s got pu$$ies like craters, can’t treat them like ladies.
As soon as i cum, I come to my senses.

See the video and remaining horrible so-called lyric here:

It seems women are still looked at as subjects only suitable for pro-creating and essentially pleasing men. What era are we living in? It’s quite sad most, not all, but most men still have this ice-age type mindset.

When will women, across the world, be looked at as the Queens that they are? Not, body parts to use, misuse, abuse and discard of when a new one comes along…

BLACK MEN, OPEN YOUR EYES AND MINDS TO A HIGHER STATE OF BEING. Treat women as they were your Mother or daughter. Respect for who gives you life, is respecting yourself.

Emmett Till’s family responds to LiL Wayne disrespectful lyrric

Emmett Till's family responds to LiL Wayne disrespectful lyrric

In August 1955, a fourteen-year-old black boy whistled at a white woman in a grocery store in Money, Mississippi. Emmett Till, a teen from Chicago, didn’t understand that he had broken the unwritten laws of the Jim Crow South until three days later, when two white men dragged him from his bed in the dead of night, beat him brutally and then shot him in the head. Although his killers were arrested and charged with murder, they were both acquitted quickly by an all-white, all-male jury. Shortly afterwards, the defendants sold their story, including a detailed account of how they murdered Till, to a journalist. The murder and the trial horrified the nation and the world. Till’s death was a spark that helped mobilize the civil rights movement. Three months after his body was pulled from the Tallahatchie River, the Montgomery bus boycott began.

Over the weekend, Future dropped a remix to his “Karate Chop” track that features Lil Wayne. During his verse, Weezy dropped a disrespectful punchline that used the name of Emmett Till. The family of the then 14-year-old Black boy that was murdered in 1955 in Mississippi for whistling at a white woman is none too happy about said line.

On the “Karate Chop (Remix),” Weezy raps, “Beat that p-ssy up like Emmett Till.”

Rapper LiL Wayne knows his name, and more than likely knows his story. For a fellow black man knowing our history and the atrocities our people have went through, to be able to make a lax statement in a song such as this is a disgrace to any black civil right movement. It’s the lack of respect and common sense that too many young black men & women that is detrimental to any further progress of equal opportunities for us as a people.

I would hope for more when it comes to hip hop artists to tell our story, inspire great minds and be conscious because of our history.
