    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."

    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.

    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.

    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. Regardless, Weezy is starting the promo tour, appearing on the cover of Nylon this month, for which the cover and a few choice quotes have been revealed. Read what the YM leader has to say about his work ethic, his dependence on weed, and his dedication to music below.

    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). Wayne's daughter earned herself a BMW SUV as well as a Ferrari GTO. No word on whether she can actually drive these things. Reginae's mother, Toya Wright and her husband Memphitz were also in attendance. It's not clear whether or not they contributed to the luxurious gifts.

    Lil B delivered his first lecture in 2012 at NYU, which generated a lot of attention, and inspired some very thoughtful pieces. Most of all, Lil B's words were sincere and uplifting, which is why the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (which happens to be ranked as the number one university in the world) asked him to speak to students this week.

    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. Elsewhere, Nicki Minaj delivered the first full televised performance of "Bed Of Lies", which she teased during her hosting gig at the AMAs, while Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea did their best to reel in their "Booty" performance for the primetime crowd.

    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.

    Kanye West has been juggling a lot as of late. He’s been raising his fashion-forward and absolutely adorable daughter, tearing down numerous Fashion Week shows, designing his capsule collection for adidas and putting the finishing touches on his as-of-yet untitled seventh solo album. 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.

    Weezy may not release material quite as often as he did back in the late 2000s, but don't get to thinking he isn't in the studio every day. Releasing a new "PSA" for disappointed fans who were eagerly anticipating the October 28th release of Tha Carter V, the Young Money head honcho claimed that so much material has been recorded for the new project that it won't fit on a single album. Rather than package everything as a double-disc, the project will instead be released in two parts.

The rapper seems to poised to outdo that with the announcement of her upcoming Pinkprint release, "Only" which will hit iTunes Tuesday, and boasts a stacked cast of features, to say the least.
