We're now a few months removed from DJ Mustard's debut album, 10 Summers, which he initially gave to fans for free via Google Play. One of the definite stand-out records was the big collaboration with Lil Wayne, Big Sean, YG and Lil Boosie for "Face Down."

Nicki Minaj Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown "Only" Lyric Video
Nicki Minaj Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown
Nicki Minaj got people talking when she released "Only", her new Dr. Luke-produced single last week, and she'll have people talking once again whn they get a look at the lyric video for the track. While the concept of the song was pretty straight to the point, the "Only" artwork certainly left a few questions unanswered (namely why was Drake dressed in a pope getup?). Unfortunately, the video only raises more questions, such as -- is anyone getting a Nazi vibe from this? Let the thinkpieces begin.

Lil Wayne and Drake are knee deep in their "Vs." tour, and their new video for "Grindin'" (the song which they dropped on the first date of the stint) certainly reflects that.

Lil Wayne's Weezy Wednesdays "Grindin" Preview
After missing a few weeks of his weekly series, Lil Wayne kind-of returns today with the latest episode of "Weezy Wednesdays."

Check out the video above, or don't, you won't really be missing anything.

In it, we see Drake and Wayne popping bottles, blazing up and goofing around on the basketball court. At one point, Drizzy sinks a shot from almost half-court.

Weezy previously said the concept of the song isn't actually about being crazy, but being himself, which people tend to view as crazy.
