    It's almost been a week since Weezy dropped Sorry 4 The Wait 2, shaking up the internets and having stans everywhere claiming Tunechi's back (Tunechi claimed it too). It's a solid compilation of freestyles, with Wayne slaughtering some of the biggest beats from 2014, and although we could very well be sick of most of these instrumentals at this point, somehow Wayne breathes new life into them.

    Birdman may not be able to brag about boolin' in the bondo on the next Rich Gang mixtape, as the Ivy Condo Association is attempting to take the space away from him. TMZ reports that the Cash Money mogul's checks have been bouncing, and he's accumulated $12,500 in unpaid fees for the home. As a result, the Association went to court in November, requesting to foreclose the condo by Christmas.

    Birdman's presence is largely felt when he's around, whether he's shit-talking at the end of a track, or simplyrubbing his hands together in a video, the man leaves a strong impression. Naturally, when he shows up on the cover of a Spiderman comic, he can't help but upstage one of the most powerful supervillains in the Marvel universe with his boss status.

    When Lil Wayne took to Twitter earlier this week to announce the delay of Carter V, it wasn't all that surprising. What was surprising was his vocal frustration with both the label and his mentor/father figure Birdman. Wayne expressed that he wanted out of his deal as soon as possible, but it wasn't clear whether he'd attempt to see the threat through. Performing at Vice's 20th anniversary party last night, Wayne once again touched on his rickety deal, remarking, "I'm fucked up in a bad situation, but I will be out of it soon."

    The story of two brothers who came from nothing, from a city far off the hip-hop radar, and built an empire. But they didn’t do it alone. Brothers Bryan “Baby” Williams (who we now know as Birdman), age 22, and Ronald “Slim” Williams, age 24, wanted to get out of their projects and build a better life for their family and friends in Magnolia and the surrounding Wards. They started off with a very local Uptown roster and began making waves in the N.O. bounce music community.

Although we can assume the mansion was in pretty good shape when he scooped it off the market, he nonetheless decided to do a bunch of renovations on the place. Now the construction company responsible for the costly renovations are claiming that they were not paid accordingly.
