    2014 may have been a terrible year for hip-hop in terms of record sales, but don't let the numbers fool you into thinking the year was uneventful. In this case, the numbers most definitely do lie.

    With "Album Weezy" being put on hold throughout the year (Tha Carter V's now expected to drop in early 2015), is "Mixtape Weezy" soon to return?

  • Cover of 140 Bars Or Less: Tweets Of The Week (December 12)
    Interesting juxtaposition we have in the first two weeks of December. This week saw the release of J. Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive, an album projected to be highest selling hip-hop project of the year while having more than its fair share of aw shucks moments. We're turning up next week, though.
  • Cover of Top 10 Predictions For 2015
    2014 was a relatively quiet year for music. It almost felt like the first half of the year was dedicated to the remnants of 2013 (so we had Young Thug continue to blow up, all the Drake leftovers) and the second half was a build up to next year (we received no Lil Wayne or Kendrick Lamar album, etc).

    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.
  • Cover of Cortez Bryant Says Everything Is "Good" At Cash Money
    With Lil Wayne and Tyga seeming all but ready to jump ship yesterday, Cash Money Records' stacked roster appears to be in danger of losing a few of its hottest talents.  Cortez Bryant (Weezy's longtime manager), however, insists that everything is "good" inside the label.
  • Cover of Tyga Says "The Gold Album" Won't Be A Cash Money Release
    Trouble seems to be brewing among the ranks at Cash Money Records. After Lil Wayne, arguably the label's flagship artist, tweeted his dissatisfaction with the label and its CEO, Birdman, Tyga (who pulled a similar stunt a few months ago) has added fuel to the fire.
  • Cover of Lil Wayne Says Cash Money Is Refusing To Release His Album [Update: Pusha T Responds]
    In his lengthy career, Lil Wayne has rarely (if ever) publicly said anything about Birdman, the man he often calls "daddy," so with that in mind, the tweets he just sent out are shocking.
  • Cover of Lil Wayne Says He's One Of The Few Artists Left Who's "Only About The Music"
    Lil Wayne is supposed to be releasing his new album Tha Carter V on December 9th. Seeing as Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint is due out a week later and is now available for pre-order while Wayne's record is not, we're probably looking at another delay.
  • Cover of Lil Wayne Bought His Daughter 2 Cars For Her 16th Birthday
    Lil Wayne likes to spoil his oldest child, Reginae Carter, and of course her sweet 16 was no exception. Not only did Reginae's party feature a performance by Young Money's first lady Nicki Minaj, she scored two brand new cars (and not cheap ones at that).

    The AMAs had a pretty stacked cast of performers this year, with a pretty wide range of pop, R&B, and rap performances. Lil Wayne debuted a brand new song from the Carter V, which featured the newly Cash Money-signed singer (and Weezy's rumored girlfriend for a time) Christina Millian.

  • Cover of Review: Future's "Monster"
    Part of Future’s appeal lies in a musically indefinable existence. While both Pluto (and the 3D version) and Honest became somewhat of a set template for artists like Travi$ Scott, Future himself is a blend of the past, some not so distant.

  • Cover of Lil Wayne Announces New "Carter V" Release Date, Says The Album Will Have Two Parts
