It hasn’t been a good public relations year for Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, with both men under fire for lyrics that many say crossed the lines of decency. One radio station has responded to the popular rappers and their questionable output by pulling their music off the air.
WUVS -103.7 in Muskegon, Mich. has taken a stand against Rozay and Weezy, speaking against Wayne’s ill-advised use of Emmett Till’s name in a punch line for a remix of Future’s “Karate Chop” single. The station also checked Ross on his alleging date r@pe on Rocko’s buzzing single “YounEEnKnoIT,” as well, in a released statement.
Effective immediately Muskegon’s WUVSlp 103.7 the Beat has pulled ALL Lil Wayne and Rick Ross music from rotation. We pride ourselves on playing music that is non-degrading and non-violent. While we believe in freedom of speech, creative writing and individualism, we refuse to be part of the problem by spreading messages that could harm or end someone’s life.
According to a report from theGrio.com, two major petitions have been launched by activists using Change.org and RapRehab.com as their platforms. Rap Rehab founder and music rights activist Paul Porter addressed the situation in a comment.
“The problem is not only with the content and date r@pe, but the problem is that it goes through a corporate structure,” Porter told theGrio.
Several other stations are said to be following WUVS in pulling the Rocko record from playlists. Lil Wayne’s verse was edited and an apology was issued by his record label.
Rick Ross took some time to address the controversy surrounding his lyrics on New Orleans radio station Q93 and In Flex We Trust got the exclusive video footage. Hit the next page to check out what Rozay had to say about the line around the 4:43 mark.
Like many, Stevie Wonder is not happy with Lil Wayne’s distasteful use of Emmitt Till’s name, but he can’t seem to understand why no one warned the rapper beforehand. Wonder believes that rather than recording the lyrics, found on the remix to Future’s “Karate Chop” record, Weezy’s reference to the slain teen, should’ve never made it to the track.
“You just cannot do that,” Wonder said. “I think you got to have someone around you that – even if they are the same age or older – is wiser to say, ‘Yo, that’s not happening. Don’t do that.’
“Sometimes people have to put themselves in the place of people who they are talking about. Imagine if that happened to your mother, brother, daughter or your son. How would you feel? Have some discernment before we say certain things. That goes for me or any other (song)writer.”
Weezy has been criticized for equating “beating up” a woman’s insides, to the attack received by Till, a 14-year-old killed in 1955 for whistling at a White woman.
Epic Records has decided to pull the track, vowing to re-release the song without the disrespectful line. The label reached out to Till’s family to personally apologize for the song. Wayne however has not yet offered so much as an explanation for what may have been an inability to comprehend how inappropriate the lyric was.
Lil Wayne has signed his 14-year-old daughter Reginae Carter to his Young Money imprint.
During an interview with Rap-Up.com, YM president Mack Maine said that in addition to signing PJ Morton, Torion Sellers and We The Future, the label has snatched up Reginae and expects her to be a “megastar.”
“Wayne’s daughter, Reginae, is actually signed to Young Money now,” he said. “Just expect greatness. She’s Toya [Wright's] daughter and Wayne’s daughter, so that’s a great combination. She’s a star, put it like that. A megastar.”
Reginae was previously a member of the OMG Girlz, a girl group put together by Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Kiesha Miles in 2009. In November, she celebrated her 14th birthday with a skate party attended by Wayne, Lauren London and Nivea.
Her famous father is currently prepping the release of his upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II, releasing March 26th.
Mack Maine Says Lil Wayne’s “I Am Not A Human Being II” Is “Insane,” Updates On Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same”
Young Money president Mack Maine touches on a handful of projects coming out of the camp.
Young Money is gearing up for a busy 2013, with few releases already dotting the schedule.
During an interview with Rap-Up, the label’s president Mack Maine spoke on Lil Wayne’s upcoming I Am Not a Human Being II (March 26th), describing the project as “Wayne being Wayne” and stating that he goes into a different mental space with installments of the series.
“Wayne being Wayne. Greatness. It’s lyrically insane,” he said. “When he does the I Am Not a Human Being, he actually taps into a different part of his brain where he just talks out of his mind and out of this world. So just expect him being Wayne, but more edgy, saying what he wants, a lot of fun, you know, a lot of high energy.”
Mack, who also said that another YMCMB compilation is on the way, touched on the unique cover art for IANAHB II, designed by Kanye West’s DONDA creative content company. He said that while ‘Ye doesn’t have any tracks on the album, Weezy was such a fan of the work he did for 2 Chainz’s Based on a T.R.U. Story that he enlisted his services to design the artwork for the upcoming album.
“Kanye has actually established himself as a designer, and Wayne wanted him on there. We don’t have a Kanye track on there, so we improvised and we got a cover from him,” he said. “He did 2 Chainz’s cover, and we liked 2 Chainz’s cover too. Kanye’s great, he’s brilliant.”
While he said that Drake’s Nothing Was the Same is currently without a release date, Mack revealed that he’s heard a few cuts from the project and that it could drop in the summer. “He’s on the same pace as he always is to drop a classic. He’s like 10 songs in,” shared Mack. “Knowing him, that’s only like 4 songs, he probably won’t keep 6 of them. He’s a perfectionist though.”
Young Money releases have been sparse over the past few years. Last year, the imprint only released Tyga’s Careless World: Rise of the Last King, Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and its addendum Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up.
It looks like Lil Wayne is back in legal hot water over an alleged assault with a skateboard.
In a recent report from LA Weekly, it appears that Los Angeles promoter Alfredo Marino is preparing to sue Weezy over a reported assault. Marino claims that in May 2012, a member of the YMCMB rapper’s entourage hit him over the head with a skateboard.
Marino recalls that he saw Wayne and his entourage skating in Los Angeles, and approached them with the hopes of getting his picture taken with the rapper. After repeated requests, Marino says that Wayne became angry and ordered one of his bodyguards to attack him.
“I was star-struck,” Marino told LA Weekly. “I was like ‘Cool, cool, cool!’…[his bodyguards] started tripping and saying, ‘I told you that Lil Wayne does not want to be bothered.’ I told them I have taken pictures of tons of people and I just want to show my friends that I saw Lil Wayne. They started calling me a ‘groupie’ and I said, ‘I ain’t no groupie’…Lil Wayne had enough, I guess, and he rolled up on a skateboard and he said, ‘Alright motherfucker, you want to take a picture like a groupie? Like a little bitch? Like a little girl? Is that what you want?’”
He continued, “I couldn’t believe he was telling me this. I actually started laughing. I didn’t take it seriously. I told him I just wanted a picture and that I’m a promoter. But he said, ‘I don’t want to hear that shit. You’re nothing but a groupie bitch to me.’”
It was following this exchange that Marino says one of Wayne’s entourage picked up a skateboard and hit him over the head with it, knocking him unconscious. He was later treated at a nearby hospital for a concussion and vertigo.
“Honestly, I’m not trying to be a millionaire for getting smacked over the head,” Marino said. “I want him to realize that there are fans out there, tons of fans out there and this is the way he’s going to treat them?…I’m a big Hip Hop fan, and I loved Lil Wayne’s music. Now I hate his music. But I’m kind of like in the zone that everywhere I go I see Lil Wayne. I see him on TV. I hear him every damn day on the radio. I can’t get away from this guy. It disgusts me.”
In an earlier report from DX, Wayne was quoted as having told Marino that, “Don’t you know all it takes is a word and these motherfuckers are going to fuck you up?”
This isn’t the first time the rapper’s entourage has been accused of assault. Last year, Weezy’s bodyguards were accused of attacking a photographer in Miami while the rapper was skating.
Young Money rapper Lil Wayne will no longer have to worry about a lawsuit filed against him by promotion company Red City Entertainment now that the lawsuit has been settled outside of court.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit made on behalf of Red City Entertainment claimed that the rapper slept through what was to be a concert appearance in the Bahamas back in 2009. Those from the promotion company also stated that they gave Lil Wayne $432,000 for what was supposed to be his appearance at the show.
Legal documents attained by TMZ state that the case was settled on January 8, 2013 and was then dismissed. It is unclear what the specific details of the settlement between Lil Wayne and Red City Entertainment are.
Red City Entertainment’s lawsuit against Lil Wayne serves as the latest legal woe the rapper has faced since he lost his The Carter documentary lawsuit late last year against Quincy Jones III.
There are lots of viewers not tuning in to watch Nicki Minaj on American Idol, and one of those people just happens to be Lil Wayne. Weezy hasn’t watched his Young Money protégé on the Fox singing competition.
“Actually, I’ve never watched it,” Wayne admitted during a Trukfit meet-and-greet at a New Orleans Macy’s store, Friday (Feb. 1).
Minaj knows that her boss won’t be interested so she’s warned him beforehand. “When I talk to her she’s always tells me, `You don’t wanna watch that, you’re not going to be into it.”‘
From the sounds of it the New Orleans native has been reading the headlines about Minaj and fellow judge, Mariah Carey. The two don’t get along, are often visibly irritated in each other’s presence, and have argued in front of the cameras–more than once. “She knows me. ..It’s kind of like a catfight where they be going back and forth type of thing, I’m not into all that,” he added.
“The talent on that is pretty good I heard, though.”
Wayne is among the many stars in his hometown for the Super Bowl. Last night, the father of four performed at the GQ Super Bowl show amid the likes of celebrity audiences members including Kate Upton, Victor Cruz, Terrell Owens, Terry Crews, and Hayden Panettiere. The weekend has also found the Young Money leader participating in the Direct TV Celebrity Beach Ball (which apparently got a little awkward), and showing his support for an I.M.P.A.C.T. New Orleans charity event.
Lil Wayne has announced the dates for his upcoming 2013 European arena tour featuring opening acts 2 Chainz and Mac Miller.
The tour, which features 15 performances in 10 different countries, kicks off on March 8th at Ireland’s 02 Arena. Throughout the trek, Weezy and company will make stopes in Marseille, Berlin, Stockholm and Paris. The venture concludes on March 27th at Amsterdam, Netherland’s Ziggo.

Though it’s unclear when, if ever, Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana’s I Can’t Feel My Face will be released, the two emcees will be working together in another capacity.
In an interview with MTV’s RapFix Live, the New York emcee revealed that Wayne will be executive producing his album.
“I went out to Miami to chop it up with Wayne. I actually asked him to executive produce my album, Born to Lose, [Bult to Win],” said Juelz.
Despite the gravity of the move, Juelz didn’t make a big deal out of the situation: “It’s big to me, and it’s a beautiful thing, but Wayne is like my brother. So I knew once I asked him to do it… I’m sure if I woulda went to Cash Money, I coulda went to Cash Money, but that wasn’t… The best thing to do is to reach out to him and figure out how we can still make it the best thing possible, and I figured ask him to executive produce my album would be a great thing. He agreed to it, so that’s gonna be coming up [soon].”
