Lil Wayne Addresses Cash Money Records Feud On “Sh!t” Remix

Yesterday (January 13) Lil Wayne gifted fans with a new track off of his upcoming Sorry 4 the Wait mixtape.

Within the track, which is a remix of Future’s Honest album single “Sh!t,” Weezy addresses his controversial situation with Cash Money Records.

In between a slew of punchlines, Weezy raps “Did my time at Cash Money / Time served and release / But this agent ain’t free, word / That’s just word on these streets / But that shit is old news, that shit yester-week /
I’m just focused, focused on my expertise.”

The lyrics stem from Wayne’s public outcry to be released from his longtime label, Cash Money Records. Just last month, Wayne took to Twitter to address his concerns with Cash Money.

“To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it,” he tweeted.

“I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy,” he continued. “I am a prisoner and so is my creativity. Again, I am truly sorry and I don’t blame ya if ya fed up with waiting 4 me & this album. But thk u.”

While Wayne’s new lyrics aren’t exactly derogatory, they do serve as evidence his contract situation is still on his mind.

Safaree Samuels Says He Helped Nicki Minaj Write Her Raps

A very public breakup — centered around The Pinkprint album — has placed Nicki Minaj and her former boyfriend Safaree Samuels in a position where they’re sparring with one another via social media and press appearances.

Today (January 13), Safaree stopped by Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club to speak openly about his relationship with Nicki and why things seem to have crumbled.

“That was my soulmate,” he says about their once-discreet relationship. “Me and her were calling all the shots.”

Safaree also explains that their relationship originated in a group they both belonged to called The Hood$tarz. When things didn’t work out, Nicki decided to go solo and SB supported her.

“Every time it came to writing raps,” he says, “it was me, her and the beat. It got to the point where the respect was gone. I’m the one who packed my stuff and left.

“Everyone around her works for her,” he continued. “I was being treated like an employee instead of her man.”

Nicki’s rumored relationship with Meek Mill was brought up and DJ Envy asked Safaree if he was the one that introduced her to Meek.

“Yeah,” he replies. “But if that’s who she decides to move on with, it is what it is. I’m not mad. I’m not bitter. If I wanted to make it work, I could’ve made it work. She can take a picture with whoever she wants, she can get married tomorrow and be pregnant the next day I will wish her the best, but when you try to pull me down and discredit what I’ve done for you, that’s what’s weak to me.”

Safaree emphasized to the hosts that the “respect was gone.” So, when he heard the harsh lyrics on Nicki’s track “Only,” he says that he was numb to it.

“As far as the ‘Only’ song, that’s something on the outside people take as disrespect,” he says. “Maybe, I’ve been dealing with it for so long, it seemed like the norm to me. I got numb to it.”

Although it appears his ex has moved on, Safaree says he’s not trying to rush into a new relationship.

“I need to learn myself right now because I lost myself, so I’m trying to build myself back up,” he says. “I’m getting used to being around people again.”

French Montana Discusses Lessons Learned From Khloe Kardashian Relationship

French Montana recently spoke with XXL’s Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Satten for an interview that appeared in the publication’s winter 2014 issue.

During the conversation, French detailed his upcoming album Mac & Cheese.

“Mac & Cheese is like my baby,” French says. “It’s the first [mixtape] I put out right after we did Coke Wave, me and Max B. Mac & Cheese really stands for soulful music. So if you see the title and you’re already a fan of my work, you know I’m coming with epic music.”

French also revealed that he has between 90 – 100 songs already recorded for the album. Every day, he says he’s been listening to tracks, narrowing them down and learning new things.

French has also had to fend off relationship rumors for the last few months. His public courting of Khloe Kardashian covered tabloids everywhere, but dealing with the reality TV star has definitely taught him a lesson or two.

“What I learned about relationships on this side is that they last longer when nobody knows your business,” he says in the Q&A. “I’m very private when it comes to me and Khloe. Khloe is an amazing person, one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life.”

His Hip Hop relationships have been profitable. Fortunately, there are a lot of rappers French calls friends.

“Definitely Puff, Ross, The Weeknd,” he says. “I mean, there’s a lot. The whole MMG family.”

French has worked with each of the artists he named. When asked about who he still wants to collaborate with, French named several choices outside of Hip Hop.

“I would love to work with Coldplay, Taylor Swift,” he says. “Max B again.”

Christina Milian Addresses Lil Wayne & Baby Rift

With news of a rift between Lil Wayne and Baby tearing apart the Young Money camp late in 2014, the prospects for the release of the New Orleans rapper’s Carter V are still at stake as the label looks ahead to 2015.

Offering up her own take on the divide, fellow Young Money artist Christina Milian chimed in when asked by the Hollywood Reporter about the situation on the red carpet for the recent premiere of the TV series Empire.

“It’s a little difficult,” she said. “I’m on the same record label. I’m on Young Money, so it’s a little difficult when it comes to business. I understand the circumstance for all of them. I think everyone’s trying to work it out and I wish the best. Honestly it’s been an empire that has been built between Baby and with Lil Wayne. You can only hope for the best and big things for the both of them, that they continue this grind that they have. They basically paved the way for people like myself having the opportunity to become successful. I pray it all works out. I know he prays the same thing, nothing but the best.”

Brooklyn-based independent label Coalmine Records has announced the signings of emcee A La $ole and emcee/producer J57 and projected a mid-March delivery for their collaborative album.

Brooklyn’s A La $ole was on both Pro Era’s Peep: The Aprocalypse and The Shift.

“I first heard of J57 when Joey Bada$$ first cut that Big Poppa $wank (Swank Rock) record,A La $ole said of his initial exposure to the producer’s work. It sent me back to when I first discovered my love for music, so I was instantly amazed by the production. Ever since then I wanted to work with him and now it’s actually mind-boggling that we are now putting together this masterpiece.

“I’ve been down with/working with Joey Bada$$ for a couple of years and steadily watching the Pro Era movement,J57 said. A La $ole was the next Pro I wanted to work with because he’s a phenomenal lyricist. The project came together organically due to our mutual respect for each other’s craft. I know A La will be the next big thing and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

The album is untitled at present, and the release date has not been confirmed, save for a projected mid-March delivery,per Coalmine Records CEO Matt Diamond.
