    Lil Wayne caused quite a controversy with his choice of words on Future's "Karate Chop" remix last year, causing quite an uproar with a tasteless reference to the brutal murder of Emmett Till. Whether or not it's influenced by the reaction to that particular line, Wayne is apparently trying his best to watch his mouth on his upcoming album, Tha Carter V.

We didn’t know what she actually wanted.”

    Bromances aren't relegated strictly for college frat boys, although you may have that idea in mind. Hip-hop has proved to be the birthing place of many a bromance, some of which have fizzled out over the years, and some of which remain stronger than ever. We got our host Ashlee Ray to break down some of the most notable bromances in hip-hop history, including some of that are no more (Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane) and some that continue til this day (Lil Wayne and Birdman).

    Since the release of We Are Young Money in 2009, Nicki Minaj has risen from femme fatale on the rise after dropping the excellent Beam Me Up Scotty to ubiquitous representative of aggressive femininity. Drake, once Lil Wayne’s fresh-faced protégé, is now the biggest crossover success in hip-hop — not just Young Money. Lil Wayne’s career has been on a slump in recent years, but it if the blogosphere’s inquiry about Tha Carter V’s impending arrival tells us anything, it’s that his word still holds weight.

    Lil Wayne has stated that Tha Carter V will be his final solo album, but fans have been split on whether to believe his claim. The Young Money leader made similar promises before Tha Carter IV was released, yet he's continued to release music since. In a new interview with MTV, Weezy was clear that his claims are to be taken seriously-- unless of course, there's some money on the table. "25 to 35 million would get me to do another solo album after this," he said, adding with sincerity, "I didn't smile when I said that."

    The Future hook is a powerful thing. It can single-handedly make a hit song, it can resurrect a career, it can even show up three times on a fake Carter V tracklist with no one batting an eye. The Future hook can be triumphant, vulnerable, melodic, punchy, sometimes all at the same... ok you get the idea.

Yesterday, one of their old friends from the neighborhood was killed by a police officer, and the two YMCMB rappers feel that there was foul play (on account of the cop) involved.  Weirldy enough, Keith “Magik” Atkinson, had just partied with the Young Money team the night before. He reportedly woke his mother up in the morning to gush about his incredible night, before stepping out to the convenience store, only to be fatally shot five minutes later.
