Earlier this week, we listened to Wayne’s Marvin’s Room remix and now this past Wednesday he’s dropped his new mixtape Sorry 4 The Wait. If you haven’t already copped it already we’ve got it for you here. Lil Wayne raps over popular song beats such as My Last, Racks,Â Sure Thing and even Adele’s Rolling In The Deep. The famous sound of the flicking of a lighter can be heard on the mixtape along with features of rappers Gudda Gudda and Lil B. The mixtape is a gift for fans due to album pushbacks and he makes that clear through his saying of “sorry for the wait” all through the mixtape. What’s your opinion on the new mixtape? Weezy fans are you happy he finally gave you something to listen to while he continues to work on Tha Carter IV? Will you be copping Tha Carter IV August 29th?
“We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”
This is just so surprising being that they are one of the few couples that stay out of the media as far as negative attention goes. I thought this was going to be the Hispanic version of Will and Jada. I’m sure this is going to take a toll on their twins. What do you think are the reasons behind their divorce? You think Jennifer’s getting too involved in her career and forgetting her family?

Just today an angry worker of the MS&L public relations group inside of the Proscenium office building shot 3 of his co-workers. Two of the victims survived with gun shot wounds to their ankle and another with gun shot wounds to their back. This incident took place at about 12:30 today near the intersection of 14th Street and Crescent Avenue in Midtown. This is all types of crazy if you ask me. Cops are now on the search for a black Toyota Prius with a Georgia license plate BUC 2324. My fellow Atlantan’s please be careful out here! I wonder what made the man so upset that he felt the need to shoot his co-workers. I’ll try to post more details about this story as they come out. Do you know any additional details about this story?
We haven’t heard from R&B singer Dâ€™Angelo in a while but we will soon.Â While the singer has endured aÂ lot of hardship over the past few years that include a serious car wreck and arrests for drug possession, it seems he’s back in the game. D’Angelo and Questlove (drummer for the Roots) had a studio session in New York just last night according to tweets from Questlove. READ MORE
While there are tons of bloggers out here on the net, I wanted to take this time out of the day to recognize two bloggers who I respect: Angel Laws of Concrete Loop and Fred Mwangaguhunga of Mediatakeout.Â Both of them are on opposite ends of the blogosphere but there are unique things about them that make them standout.
First off, I want to congratulate Angel on her new book! I went in Barnes & Nobles and spotted her book. I copped 5 copies; one for myself and the other four for close friends of mine who are aspiring bloggers. I love that Angel put out a book to share her journey of blogging and how others can do it too. I’m glad that she recognizes that there’s enough room for all us here on the net. Her book is just a reflection of the positive energy that she puts out into the world. If you haven’t already got your copy of “Angel’s Law Of Blogging” be sure to do so. Congratulations again Angel!
Secondly, I wanted to give my homie and mentor Fred Mwangaguhunga a shout out. He had triplets and working on some big things. Just so yall know Fred is the guy behind the worlds biggest African American blog Mediatakeout.com. His website gets millions of unique views everyday. His website is mainly known for his extreme and bizarre stories about celebrities and other random outlandish ish. Last month he sat down to give Shamika Sanders of the Urban Daily an interview (WHICH IS SUPER RARE!). Check out the video interview here: READ MORE
Mother Monster Lady Gaga was recently egged this past Wednesday. Sounds insane with all of the fans that she’s known for having. Apparently people didn’t like Lady Gaga rolling around the stage in a wheelchair. Gaga used the wheelchair because she had used it previously in her music video for her hit song “Paparazzi” as well as her performance on the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Her Australian fan base was not going for it though and proceeded to throw eggs at her on stage. Luckily, she didn’t get hit with any eggs but her entourage did. Go figure.
This wheelchair issue has really ruffled some feathers too.Â The founder of the quadriplegic advocacy group Life Rolls On, Jesse Billauer, has issued a statement saying “I invite [Gaga] to learn more about the 5.6 million Americans who live with paralysis. They, like me, unfortunately, don’t use a wheelchair for shock value”. Looks to me like she’s pissed off a few people with this stunt. While she’s expressed her love and stands up for the LGBT community it seems as if she’s got no heart for the disabled.
In addition to this, Lady Gaga also got herself into some additional trouble. Her YouTube account was suspended just recently when she posted footage of her appearance on a Japanese television show. Media Interactive ordered that she remove the footage and it was then that YouTube allowed Lady Gaga to use her official page again. Looks like it doesn’t matter if you’re Lady Gaga or the average Joe….rules are rules!
Do you think it was cool for her to roll around in a wheel chair? Do you think fans went over board by egging her?
Wale has just released his song “Bad Girls Club” which features his Roc Nation partner J. Cole. Wale caused a lot of stir for this song on Twitter but only dropped snippets. A video is already in the works for this song with former Bad Girls Club star Natalie Nunn to play the lead. This song will be on his first album to drop from Maybach Music Group. It’s comes as exciting news being that Wale hasn’t dropped an album in a year and half since his Interscope album “Attention Deficit”. Check the song here:
So what’s the verdict yall? Hot or not? You ready for the rest of the album to drop?
No matter how much negative press and/or lies, Chris Brown seems to stay in or around, Team Breezy proved to be devout fans. Today Chris Brown performed for the Today’s summer concert series. Projections for the audience are numbered to be between 18,000 – 20,000 people! The NYPD even had to shut off 48th and 49th streets. All of this mania has lead to Chris’s concert being that biggest concert for the show in all of it’s history. READ MORE
