    As previously announced, Weezy F. Baby took the stage at tonight's American Music Awards to debut his brand new Carter V single "Start A Fire." Featuring a chorus from Christina Milian, the track centers on a relationship between the former member of the Hot Boyz and a "hot girl" that catches his attention. The preview was just over two-minutes in length, so we can assume that a third verse either from Wayne or Christina will make its way onto the studio version.

Aside from all of that, Ye has also reportedly been busy executive producing forthcoming albums from Tyga and French Montana. If history is any indication, it’s safe to assume that we should have a lot of good music (no pun intended) to look forward to within the next few months.
