Lil Wayne Gets Love From New Orleans Rap Artists

Posted: Saturday – November 6, 2010

Before he was conquering the mainstream music world, Lil Wayne was engrossed in the local New Orleans hip-hop scene, and making a name for himself as a member of the then bourgeoning Cash Money army. Today, Weezy is hip-hop phenomenon, pushing units and influencing culture with his peerless swagger. Despite his outsize fame, local hip-hop stars recall that Wayne still shows love to the artists of his hometown where it all began.

Just days after Weezy’s release from prison, MTV News trekked to New Orleans and caught up with local duo Partners-N-Crime, who stayed on the hip-hop grind with Wayne and onetime battle MC, Mack Maine, now president of Young Money. The rappers recall knowing Wayne as artists on a rival hip-hop roster.

“When we was coming up in the game, Wayne was a little bit younger than us. We was on a label by the name of Big Boy Records, at the time, and he was with Cash Money Records. And really, to be honest with you, both of the labels kinda had a little rivalry thing going on” Kango Slim said. The label, which was once home to fellow New Orleans hip-hop veteran Mystikal, maintained a competitive relationship with the Cash Money camp.

“At one time, we all never did look eye-to-eye to each other ’cause it was kinda like a problem between both of the labels,” he said. “But as we grew older, things [began] to change, we began to gel with each other more and become more of a friendship.”

Mr. Meanor said that after Cash Money, which began to dominate the hip-hop charts with bass-heavy offerings from spitters like Juvenile and B.G., hit big, the drama between the labels calmed down and Wayne reached out the Partners to team up on a track.

“Once Wayne got kinda on, we did a song with Wayne called ‘We Do What We Want To,’ which was on our last album, called We Are Legends, [2009]” he said. The MC recalled the track hinted at the rock and roll vibe Wayne would champion in his later music.

“We call it rock-hop ’cause it’s a hip-hop song with a rock twist to it and Wayne did it. It was kinda right before he started doing the Rebirth and that kind of music, pretty much,” he added. “He did that song with us and the relationship been good pretty much from that point. Much love for Wayne, [we're] happy he home.”

The MCs are glad to see Wayne as free man today, but they were also amped a few years ago when Wayne looked out for his hometown homies.

Wayne came back after he had done blew off with the Cash Money thing, reached back to us and told us, ‘If y’all had a song for me to do … I’m a do it,’ ” Kango Slim said. “He did just what he said, and from then on we’ve just been friends ever since and making things happen.”

The MCs also reflected on one of the perks of being down with Wayne: a hometown discount.

“At that time, that’s when Wayne was charging $30,000 for a feature,” Mr. Meanor added. “Big shouts out to Wayne for the love on that because he saved us 30 grand and gave us a hot feature.”

Lil Wayne Busted For “Music Contraband” Behind Bars

Lil Wayne was busted at Rikers Island Prison Monday morning after officials found him with “music contraband.”

As previously reported Wayne’s stay at the prison is being documented, with a prison guard being fired for “spying on him” in previous weeks and a visit from Diddy being heavily scrutinized.

Now Weezy reportedly was caught breaking the rules after sneaking in a MP3 player, a charger and headphones.

According to The New York Daily News, Weezy was found with the contraband around 8 a.m. Monday morning.

After being tipped off by another prisoner, officials found a charger for an MP3 and earphones hidden in foil and a bag stuffed in Lil Wayne’s trash.

A source tells the paper that a subsequent search found another inmate in the same wing with the accompanying MP3 player but still have no idea how Wayne got the banned items.

Wayne and his companion will be charged with an infraction for contraband.

No word on what effect, if any, this will have on his sentence.

Marijuana Smell A Selling Point For Lil Wayne Condo [Video Included]

Posted: Monday – February 22, 2010

As Wayne prepares for his jail bid, one thing is apparent and that’s’ that the Cash Money/ Young Money train won’t stop.

Before he goes in, Wayne is on record to film at least 20 videos that will feature him alongside other artists as well as his Young Money and Cash Money crew.

As Hip-Hop Wired previously reported, Lil Wayne took a visit last week to the dentist for a list of procedures including 8 root canals in preparation for his sit down.

In a recent interview with British radio personality Tim Westwood, Weezy discusses his upcoming The Carter IV album as well as his label roster which includes Nicki Minaj and Drake being about their business and making sure the label propels while he’s on hiatus.

Wayne also spoke on the reports that he was having a hard time selling his Miami condo because of the aroma of Mary Jane throughout the building. Wayne stated,

“The only part about it not being true is the having trouble part. We not having trouble selling it but all the other stuff is true. We not having trouble with that. That’s actually a [selling point]. The people that are coming into look at it like that more about it. That’s like walking into Bob Marley’s crib and you still smelling weed and his bed still messed up and fool still on the table. You like leave all that shit. I want to buy all that shit. I’m like of them niggas now.”

Peep the footage below as Wayne speaks on his last days of freedom.
