Fiddy might have a point.

In the past few days, since Fiddy Cent booted Young Buck from G-Unit, I’ve heard it put forth that one of the reasons Fiddy may have finally decided to put his foot down is that Buck had the sheer balls to go on stage with Lil’ Wayne at a show he did down in Bumblefuck, Tennessee, or wherever. But I wonder if that’s really the case.

First of all, in case you haven’t noticed (maybe you’ve been fortunate and haven’t been to any hip-hop concerts in the past several years now), “bringing people out” is the hot new trend in live hip-hop these days. I guess these rappers figure one of the ways they can make sure the audience doesn’t feel gypped, short of actually delivering a compelling live show, is to have someone else who’s famous, whom no one expected to be there, to wander out on stage halfway through the evening, grab their nuts and shout a few curse words.

Also, I’m assuming this is yet another one of these teh ghey-ass trends started by Jay-Z, like referring to one’s swagger, or walking around in “button up” shirts with baseball caps and tennis shoes and what have you. I know he’s pulled it himself on many an occasion at some of these Summer Jam concerts that they have in New York. One time he even brought out Michael Jackson. (Huzzah!)

Even if Fiddy was seriously beefing with Lil’ Wayne, I doubt he could give a rat’s ass about Young Buck bringing in a little supplemental income by making a special appearance at a Lil’ Wayne concert. I’ve heard that Lil’ Wayne puts on a god-awful live performance, and I’ve also heard that Young Buck stays broke, since he’s never actually received any royalty checks from his recordings while he’s been with G-Unit. So I’d imagine this arrangment worked out well for the both of them.

But Fiddy’s actually gone on record as saying that he never had any real beef with Lil’ Wayne, and that when he called Lil’ Wayne a prostitute, which I believe is viewed as the source of their supposed beef, he was trying to give the guy some career advice. Lil’ Wayne probably just misunderstood him, both because he’s obviously got some serious issues with sizzurp; and because, let’s face it, Fiddy Cent isn’t the most articulate man in the world.

Which is to no to suggest that Fiddy Cent isn’t brilliant in his own special way, similar to how many retarded people are especially good at math. Clearly he’s onto something, as evidenced by the fact that he actually managed to prevail in family court the other day, while everyone MC Breed to Luke from 2 Live Crew (what year is this again?) was being thrown under a bus. Sean Levert even died in prison behind some child support bullshit. I would’ve addressed it in a post last week, but I was in a middle of a several days-long bender.

It’s a good thing I don’t have any kids. They probably would’ve starved to death, like that poor baby in Trainspotting.

*checks the back room to make sure he doesn’t have any kids*


Never before has it been more clear to me that Lil’ Wayne could use some career advice than when it was revealed, just now, the cover for his forthcoming (right?) Tha Carter III? Assuming this isn’t some CP-time April Fool’s joke, I’m left with no other choice than to ask: Lil’ Wayne, seriously, what the fuck? What ever happened to just posing with your shirt off and your chest all oiled up (nullus), like most Interscope LCD rap releases?

I can appreciate the fact that putting a baby on your album cover echoes Biggie’s Ready to Die, and – to a lesser degree – Nas’ Illmatic, and that purposely trying to insert himself in a league various great rappers from the mid ’90s is one of the reasons that children and people who wouldn’t know from good rap music think that Lil’ Wayne is a great rapper, but come on. That shit’s just laughable.

It would seem amazing to me that the TIs at Universal would even sign off on some shit like that, except for the fact that motherfucking “Lollipop” is somehow managing to climb the charts. So maybe the TIs figure that the best approach with Lil’ Wayne is to let him do whatever the fuck he wants and hope for the best. And who knows? If people actually like “Lollipop,” what’s there to suggest that they’re not set for a colossal payday come this summer?

However, you have to wonder if Fiddy Cent doesn’t have a point with regard to Lil’ Wayne’s career from a business perspective. He might manage to shift a few units this year, which is all the TIs care about, but what else has he done? He’s probably just as popular as Fiddy, Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Snoop Dogg, but I seriously doubt his income is anywhere near theirs.

A few years from now, if he ends up in jail, or if people actually realize that he fucking sucks balls (and obviously I’m not holding my breath for the latter), he’ll probably be kicking himself, wondering what the fuck he was doing all this time. He might want to set the sizzurp down for a minute and work on getting his shit together.

    My opinion is that 50 said that stuff about weesy because fo the fact that wayne was doing all those mixtape and giving away all this free music and the people at interscope convinced 50 that that was a dumb ass thing to do but just like it worked for 50s’ first album its woring for the carter 3. the only big difference is that i doubt if wayne has a contract that will able him to profit off the carter 3 like 50 did his first album. so you might be right he might be kicking his self in the ass after this album or he might ptu him self in a position to become the next hip hop mogul only time will tell. dueces

    Who cares about lil wayne. I am especially tired of hearing about the business savy of a bunch of high school drop outs that can rhyme words together. Jay, 50, and whoever else wouldnt be shit without a true group of educated people pointing them in the right direction. Lil wayne is far too stupid to be takin serious…..have you heard lollipop?

    On that note…i realized that i do not hate that song. I was in hot22 strip club in jersey this weekend….and caught a mean series of lapdances to that song….subsequently, i burned some of that devils lettuce and caught some slow neck in the whip….and wouldnt you know it….shade 45 is on and so is lollipop….great slow neck song.

        dont worry sonny…when you get to puberty, you will understand. Its natural….hair in odd places…your voice will change….and you will notice that girls (more likely men) will cause an unfimilar feeling in you. If you are indeed past puberty, then you simply lack to capacity to understand why a song entitled lollipop would be appreaciated by those of us that like catching dome. Go sit on your middle finger and rub one out to a TLC video….

  • B

    Bol, why do you hate Wayne so much? I can’t believe anyone is acutally surprised that Lollipop is a hit… he used the formula and got it right (even down to his gay ass dance moves…) I’m no fan, but you can’t say the boy doesn’t have talent… The album cover is kinda cheap/wtf/gay tho.

  • Dip Set City

    Lil’ Wayne was just out her in Dayton. Brought out the Birdman for a couple songs. I heard it wasn’t that bad of a show

    he gotta do something better than himself for a cover it would look to much stillmatic. with that being said the carter 3 will be no where near classic so thats a bad idea. like the shawty lo album cover look just like jeezy’s first album cover. at least wanye sounds nothing like nas can’t say that about shawty lo the first song on his album sounds like it should be on jeezy’s 3rd album mwhahahahahah

  • Chicago G

    Wayne may not be that bright or even that great of a rapper but he has hustle so let him live if he wanna sip lean all day and make corny radio songs that’s him… He may not have 50 cent money but i’m sure he’s highly compensated, and what the fuck is this blog about anyway his lyrical ablity or his paper?????

  • What’z Crackin

    I think lil weezle gets alot of undeserved criticism with his music. a lot of the shit he put out is horrible unlistenable but every once and while through syrup and coke and whatever else hes on he’ll spit some hott shit on the mic . You also have to love the fact that wayne got his buzz and his career going again through his music and not some wack ass hiphop beef so I give respect when respect is dew. and the album cover like it people will pick it up and wonder WTF is this guy thinking? and buy the CD

  • Macdatruest

    Lil Wayne needs career advice? Dr. Dre and Eminem need career advice! When is detox coming out? When my kids have kids, but then again, people are already convinced it’s the greatest, even though compared to other producers, Dre isn’t even a factor anymore. And who the fuck wanna hear a white boy rap about suicide, mising his daughter or beating his mother? Eminem subject matter is wack Fiddy, if all these other rappers is. And why are we hating Wayne? Because magazine’s like bitch ass XXL and faggot ass hot 97 didn’t have to make him hot, or he don’t got a ignorant gimmick with every release. He got his fans the old fashion way- by making his music and letting the lame ass nobodys get caught up in the “Wide World of Rap Life” yall niggas need to keep jaggin’ off to diss records and let whoever still wanna make MUSIC and not headlines do that shit and stop hating. Fiddy just lame, shit Vanilla Ice did ten mil out the gate he lame too. And I bet he hate Wayne too right now cause a bright future is priceless

    • EReal

      Because magazine’s like bitch ass XXL and faggot ass hot 97 didn’t have to make him hot, or he don’t got a ignorant gimmick with every release.




      GTFOH if you think Wayne isnt a gimmick, and you talk about Dre and Eminem?

      How old are you again?

      Besides, Wayne just got his wig pushed back again, any more delays and Carter III WILL BE DETOX. *SMH*

  • Yaw

    *checks the back room to make sure he doesn’t have any kids*




    he is the perfect example of a battle rapper(nice lyrics, bad song writing) honestly, wayne is at his best when he just gets a beat and rap str8 with no hook. but its funny because he dodging 50 cent like a game of dodgeball. he is supposed to be the best rapper alive right??? well live up to it. don’t say you are the best at something and get pussy when its time to prove it. the fact is wayne has never battled anyone?? 50 cent isn’t even a lyrical dude so it should be easy right?? I think wayne plays it safe because he knows he is an easy target in a battle. kissing men in the mouth, paying niggas to fight for him in school, niggas taking his car and he just standing there, getting punked at wal-greens, gettin his ass whipped at the palace movie theater. its sad when u dont get respect from ur own hood. yea all my new orleans people know about that shit. i dont care how big u become u cant escape ur past even if u pretend it never happened. and thats some of the reasons that wayne won’t battle anyone, studio gangsters can’t speak the truth.
    You can’t compare the discrimination of blacks to homosexuals. We were born black, those homosexuals had a choice to reject the homosexual spirit thats operating in them. But they allowed themselfs to be decieved by the serpent and his homosexual perversion.

    And its called Hip Hop not (Homo Hop).

    Why the fuck are people STILL referring to Lil Wayne as one of the best rappers?

    Wasn’t indie rap supposed to be on the rise?

    I would kill to see any of these mainstream kids battle someone like Esoteric.

    fucking mtv…

  • EffYou

    LOL@talking about other rappers subject wayne talks about anything other than pussy,money,n drugs..Shit the Carter 3 keeps gettin pushed back just like Detox does..I heard carter 3 got pushed back AGAIN
    Yall Wayne fans act like the never aint NEVER spit no wack shit..Yall keep makin excuses for that corny ass lollipop song..He’s already got a major buzz,so that excuse “he did it for the bitches” is dumb as hell..I’m sure he’ll do numbers,based on his hype,but the carter 3 probably wont even be better than the carter 2

  • Kid Wave

    Who the fuck is “Fiddy Cent”? Other than your gay ass and all you media fucks, nobody calls them. Shit, he doesn’t even call himself that. Every interview or track he’s on, he goes, “IT’S FIFTY!” I don’t know where you get the Fiddy thing from, but that shit is annoying, STFU

    yeah….Tha Carter II was cool & a couple of guest features were cool since then too but everything after that is horrible

    • nellz

      dedication 2 was a good mixtape..a few mixtape tracks here n there…but for the most part ur right…his mixtapes prior to tha carter 2 were so much better…and wayne puts on a good live performance..especially when he gets into his older shit.
