Lil Wayne Is ‘Lonely At The Top’ But Fears The Bottom

Few artists ever reach the heights Lil Wayne has, and for the Young Money captain, that is both a gift and a curse. And it’s a dilemma that Weezy tackles on “Nightmares of the Bottom,” a new track off the New Orleans lyricist’s upcoming album Tha Carter IV.

After performing the track for the first time during the taping of his “MTV2 Presents: Lil Wayne Unplugged,” set to air Sunday on MTV, MTV2 and MTV.com, the self-proclaimed Martian broke down the song’s meaning. “I mean simply, sleeping at the top with nightmares of the bottom,” Wayne told MTV News’ Sway. “Everybody says it’s lonely at the top. It is lonely, so I dream, though, and the only thing I dream about is being down there with the people that ain’t lonely. Thank God I am alone.”

With eight solo albums and more than 10 million records sold, Wayne has tasted too much success to see his stock dip, so for him, a fall back to earth is a definite fear, he admitted.


“And that’s simply what it is: nightmares of the bottom,” he added before rapping the song’s lyrics: “Sleeping at the top/ Nightmares of the bottom/ Everybody wanna be fly, until you swat ‘em.”

Lil Wayne Unplugged” features Tunechi performing acoustic versions of his already classic catalog and places Weezy in the same class as hip-hop luminaries Jay-Z, Lauryn Hill and LL Cool J, who also took the unplugged stage.

Lil Wayne is an amazing choice for Unplugged as he is at hip-hop’s forefront — leading a new generation of artists whose appeal spans across music genres and playlists,” Amy Doyle, MTV’s executive vice president of music and talent, said in a statement. “Lil Wayne’s skills, influence, and catalog are a powerful addition to the legacy of artists who have rocked the ‘Unplugged’ stage.”

The Game Is Being Sued For Unpaid Fees

Posted: Tuesday – October 13, 2009

The Game is once again in a bit of trouble, this time with his own lawyers. The Cali emcee is being sued by his lawyers for failing to pay close to $35,000 in fees according to multiple reports. The legal firm, Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert (why do law firms always have the longest and most confusing names?) filed the lawsuit in the L.A. County Superior Court claiming that the Game has an outstanding bill on the work they did for his 2007 gun charge case.

In related news, The Game faced five years behind bars for the charge the law firm is suing over but only ended up doing eight days in jail. In the lawsuit the lawyers say that even though they got the rapper off with a “successful outcome,” he still hasn’t paid them for their work. Beyond court, The Game is currently working on his new album. Cool & Dre recently talked about working with Game on his upcoming “R.E.D.” album saying they have recorded almost ten songs already with the California emcee. “Since we have that chemistry, I think a lot of producers could just crack ‘I can’t do nothin’ right now! Like, listen to these beats!’ and we’ll knock out like three, four in one night, one session,” Cool explained.
