The Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings List each year takes a look at the elite group of artists that earn the distinguish of being the highest earners in the genre. This year, the winner that came out on top was Dr. Dre, who easily beat second place finisher Jay Z by a whopping $560 million!
It was only a matter of time before this happened (it actually happened a lot later than I expected). Ever since Justin Bieber first started getting into trouble AND it begin to make headlines, a lot of the blame was shifted to his entourage, mainly brothers Lil Twist and Lil Za.
For this week’s Throwback Thursday video, I grabbed an icon that’s still at the top of his game, possibly even more relevant now then when he first jumped onto the Hip-Hop scene. The one and only Lil Wayne has been making music for the better part of two decades (Weezy is 31), having recorded his first album at age 11 with fellow Hot Boys member B.G.
Chris Brown may be behind bars, but he is still releasing new music. The controversial singer just debuted the official music video for his explicit song, 'Loyal,' featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga (and one random cameo appearance by Usher.) In the vid, Brown shows off his highly impressive dance moves -- and some old-school fashion.
As Paris Hilton has joined the ranks of the YMCMB (Young Money Cash Money Billionaires) record label, it's only right for her to get a starring role in one the latest videos. The song entitled: "Tapout", is off the compilation album "Rich Gang" and features the majority of the YMCMB rooster, sans Drake, who was overseas recording his solo album at the time. The song itself features performances by Lil Wayne, Birdman, Nicki Minaj, Future & Mack Maine.
Lil Wayne doesn't do many interviews. But he engaged in a rare sitdown with Katie Couric for the premiere of the second season of her eponymous show (Sept. 9). In this preview clip, Weezy revealed why dropping out of high school was a good thing for him and why it was his own mama who suggested that he do so.
I received a Facebook message from a loyal listener today:
Seeing Lil Wayne desecrate our nations flag during the filming of his latest music video is beyond acceptable. In my humble opinion, your radio station should consider pulling his songs off the air to show your support for our country.
