    Chance The Rapper's success seemed to happen overnight. Even the anticipation over his Acid Rap project seemed to culminate only a week or so prior to its release. Since then, he's appeared on Lil Wayne's Dedication 5 mixtape (contributing what was arguably the best track), and toured with the likes of Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

    Busta Rhymes recently revealed his long-awaited Cash money debut would be a sequel to his 1998 classic, Extinction Level Event: The Final World Front. We've already heard his take on the twerk trend with Nicki Minaj, but according to Busta, he's got plenty of other big features up his sleeve.

    Vinyl was once an inseparable part of hip hop culture, but as technology has advanced, the format has naturally fallen out of favor (even in the DJ world). Universal Music is making an effort to give collectors another (or in some cases, first) chance to own some of genre's seminal albums on wax. The label's intention with the project is to “spotlight iconic, genre-defining albums” from the past releases of Def Jam, Interscope, Priority and Virgin Records.

    Mixtape Weezy-- somewhat of a legendary title that continues to be cited as the rapper's hungriest and most engaging form. With the release of Dedication 5, the discussion about this particular brand of Wayne was rampant once again. Was Mixtape Weezy back? or was D5 just more of the same recycled punchlines we've been hearing from his last few releases? A consensus was not made, and seldom is with Wayne-- and most certainly will not be made with this list.

    Right around the time Lil Wayne's Dedication 5 dropped, Pusha T tweeted out a message that seemed to be directed at Wayne. “I think it’s safe to say, you really lost it…” read the Tweet, and was apparently clear enough for Young Money rapper Jae Millz to respond. In an interview with DJ Envy, Pusha finally clarified what the tweet meant, as well as touching on his work with Kanye West, and the possibility of a new Clipse album.

    Lil Wayne did a very memorable interview with Katie Couric right around the release of Tha Carter III back in 2008, and this Monday, he'll be joining her once again on her talkshow (hopefully he'll refrain from calling her "Miss Katie" this time). A few clips from the show have been posted online, revealing excerpts of his sit-down with Couric , in which he talks about dropping out of school, as well as his prison experience.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of anything ever uttered by Drake). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions. Keep in mind, these are the most noteworthy lyrics of the week, not necessarily the best. Also, it's hard to get everything right - if you notice any errors, don't hesitate to let us know in the comments section. Lines we're not quite sure about will be bolded.

    There was a time not too long ago when Lil Wayne was widely considered the best rapper alive. Since 2009's No Ceilings, Lil Tunechi has left fans scratching their heads and wondering what happened to the once dominant Mixtape Weezy. All that mediocrity recently caught up to the Young Money star. Tunechi wasn't nominated for this year's MTV VMAs or the BET Awards. Instead of complaining, he went to twitter to apologize to his fans and pledged to work harder from there on out.

    Surprisingly enough, Lil Wayne hasn't received any nominations at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, which was also the case at the BET Awards earlier in the summer. The New Orleans emcee has been fairly lauded in the past, but he won't be involved in either ceremony at all this year.
