Despite the ongoing legal disputes, assassination attempts and overall bad blood between Lil Wayne and Birdman, the two partied within very close proximity of each other at Drake’s New Year’s Eve party at E11even in Miami last night. Birdman had previously noted that he runs into Wayne all the time at that they remain cordial to each other and these pics from Mack Maine and Drake’s Instagram account seem to bear that out.

Birdman has repeatedly asserted that regardless of what happens with Wayne’s lawsuit against him, Drake will remain legally attached to the Cash Money. On a related note, during Drizzy’s performance, he told the crowd that Views From the Six would be coming “very soon.”

Defining the Visual Style of Southern Hip-Hop (Documentary)

Monday, October 6th, 2014

As teased last week, here’s Noisey’s full mini-documentary on legendary design house Pen And Pixel, the creative team behind some of the most memorable album covers of all time. Co-founder Shawn Brauch speaks on the very first design the company ever produced for a rapper, the creation of Juvenile’s 400 Degreez cover and the coining of the term “bling bling” during the creation of B.G.’s Chopper City In The Ghetto artwork, which is notable because Lil Wayne swears he invented that phrase. Brauch also details how 9/11 and the advent of illegal downloading eventually let to the demise of the business. Fascinating stuff.

How Bangladesh Really Feels About Lil Wayne

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

I don’t fuck with him… and you can print that.

This guy just seems to be full of interesting press bits. When VIBE asked him if he’d be reuniting with Lil Wayne on Carter 4, Bangladesh revealed that he had yet to be paid for his work on Carter 3:

“It’s [Wayne and Baby’s] responsibility to pay [me] because all the money from album sales goes to Cash Money. I get checks from Sony for Beyoncé, checks from different labels for different artists, it just comes to you. You don’t have to call them, sue them and all that junk. This is what you’re owed.”

He continues, “I don’t really give a fuck about [Wayne]. I can’t give a fuck about somebody that don’t give a fuck about my situation, I have kids. In the hood, people get killed for ten dollars. I couldn’t imagine owing someone hundreds of thousands of dollars and just walking around in front of them. I’m so confident in myself, that I don’t need Lil Wayne. There’s gonna be so many opportunities. I can create a Lil Wayne.”

He went on to say what’s on everyone’s minds.

“This is why Mannie Fresh don’t fuck with [Cash Money] because he never got any royalty money. That’s why Baby can go around flaunting this cash, because that’s everyone else’s money… It’s not even Wayne’s fault. Wayne is not getting money. He is given money, he’s not getting money. If Baby gets a million dollars he’ll buy Wayne a Phantom, but that’s in Cash Money’s name. That 14-bedroom mansion isn’t Wayne shit,” he says. “That’s why he have his own company, because he was trying to leave Cash Money and the only thing that would keep him there was [if they] gave him his own thing. But Baby still controls that. All those Young Money artists don’t even know that they not getting royalty money.”

This isn’t the first time this month we’ve heard about producers seeking out their royalties for Carter 3:

And the beat goes on. According to the New York Post, fellow Carter III producer, Jim Jonsin—responsible for Wayne’s infectious lead single, “Lollipop”—filed a $500,000 lawsuit against Wayne on April 20 for missing royalty payments. In May 2009, Dallas production duo Play-n-Skillz also mentioned to a local radio station that they were yet to reap any monetary benefits from their work on Wayne’s third single featuring, T-Pain, “Got Money.”

So Jim Jonsin asked for 500K and Bangladesh wants another half a mil, and these two guys basically made Carter 3 what it was with “Lollipop” and “A Millie.” Baby doesn’t seem to be paying the people that helped him get all that money, yet he found the time to make corny internet videos like this and this over the weekend.
