Lil Wayne Sued For Failing To Pay Lawyer $300,000 Mar 15, 2016 at 11:14am
Just when Lil Wayne seemed to be righting his often capsized ship, a story like this one comes out. According to the NY Daily News, Lil Wane owes one of his lawyers just shy of $300,000. That isn’t an insurmountable sum for Lil Wayne, but its enough for the Michael B. Kramer to file a lawsuit against his former client for failing to pay up.

After the excitement of new projects from Kevin Gates, Future, Young Thug, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, and Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz, we seem to have hit a bit of a lull three months into 2016. Views From The 6 is (hopefully) in sight for April, and A$AP Ferg and ILoveMakonnen both should have new material out in the next few weeks, but March is definitely looking like a down month for hip hop's upper echelon.
Kendrick Lamar's "Untitled Unmastered" Goes No. 1
Kendrick Lamar's "Untitled Unmastered" Goes No. 1 Mar 13, 2016 at 08:08pm
Kendrick Lamar's surprise compilation album untitled unmastered. tops this week's Billboard 200 chart. According to Nielsen Music, the album moved 178,000 equivalent album units (and 142,000 pure album sales) for the week ending March 10.

Review: 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne's "ColleGrove"
Review: 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne's "ColleGrove" Mar 8, 2016 at 04:50pm
Of all of Lil Wayne's post-Hot Boys frequent collaborators, 2 Chainz was the best choice to tap for a joint album. Who else fits so effortlessly alongside him? Like Father Like Son is certainly an underrated relic of the past, but you'd be hard-pressed to convince anyone that Birdman could ever hang with Weezy lyrically, at any point in either of their careers.

We got an extra day of February this year, and while there aren't quite as many brand new tracks on that week's top ten list as the one that preceded it, we still got over 50% turnover.

Last night was a memorable one for hip-hop heads. Thanks to LeBron, TDE let loose a project of Kendrick Lamar album throwaways, which is sounding better than just about any album since the one they didn't make it onto. Hopefully untitled unmastered. didn't steal too much of the spotlight away from the album that came soon afterwards, a joint release between two legends -- the worlds of College Park and Hollygrove, both neighborhoods essential to the hip-hop landscape, joined together for a triumph the whole south can get behind.

Other than some resurfacing beefs (between Young Thug and The Game, and Rick Ross and Birdman, respectively) and the beginning of what is sure to be another drawn-out, highly-publicized Kanye West album rollout, it was a relatively quiet week, especially as far as full-length releases went.

Remember, as recently as a few months ago, when we all were all speculating on the inevitable decline of Cash Money? Then, Wayne and Birdman partied together on New Year's, and earlier today, Mannie Fresh put out a collab between himself, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, and even Baby, and damn, that 9th ward sound is alive and hot as ever.

After the Kanye-inspired chaos of last week, the past seven days have been relatively tame in the rap world, with the twin titans of last weekend (TLOP and the substantially less interesting Grammy awards) still dominating the conversation. Spillover aside, we got solid new projects from French Montana, Kirko Bangz, Yo Gotti, Young Dolph, TM88, and Gucci Mane/Honorable C-Note, but no Slime Season 3 just yet.

It's no secret that Mannie Fresh is partially responsible for some of Lil Wayne's most classic material, and from the looks of it, we should be getting some more collabs from the Cash Money all-stars in the near future.Wayne and 2 Chainz are getting ready to drop their own collaborative project, ColleGrove in the very near future, and looking at Fresh's Instagram, he seems to be involved in the project in some way or another.

As soon as the "If Young Metro don't trust you, I'ma shoot you" drop appeared in the middle of Kanye's MSG performance last week, an audible "Damn..." came from the crowd seated in the theater with me. 'A Ye and Future song?!', we all asked ourselves, struggling to calculate just how many flame emojis we'd have to use when describing the track to those who missed the listening session. That little soundbite was indeed Nayvadius Wilburn's voice, but the verse that followed was not, though it might not have been until after the show concluded that you realized it.
