Video: B.G. Talks Arrest, Daiquiri Shops

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

BG describes his most recent arrest after leaving the daiquiri shop in New Orleans. I’ve never been to NO but I might have to go after this interview. Where else can you get a drink at a drive thru window???

“They waited for me to leave the daiquiri shop and they accused of us making a turn without using a turn signal and that was they proper cause to pull us over, and when they pulled us over they found 3 guns in the car. As of right now none of them are mine… One of my homies tried to take all the charges but they wouldn’t let him because they figured he was doing it for me.”

Word, I gotta get down to N.O.

Video: Lil Wayne Would Love To Be Prince In Purple Rain

Monday, June 8th, 2009

Here’s some information on Wayne’s new movie with Forest Whitaker:

Lil Wayne got a huge laugh out of watching Forest Whitaker perform “Di– in a Box” during last week’s MTV Movie Awards. That’s definitely a moment he didn’t expect form his “Hurricane Season” co-star.

“I just finished shooting a movie with Forest too. He’s a very serious guy,” Wayne said after the show in Universal City, California. “I just spoke to him before he went out there, and he was like, ‘You did good in the movie.’ Then he goes out there and sings that. I’m like, ‘Wow.’ ”

Hurricane Season comes out later this year. The movie centers on a high school basketball team in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. “Everything was wonderful, and just doing it in New Orleans, it being a true story, and just contributing in any kind of way, it was great for me.”
