Lil Wayne's "No Ceilings 2" Tracklist Revealed
After hitting us with a trailer to increase the anticipation and excitement for No Ceilings 2 last night, Weezy F returns this afternoon with a tracklist, so we know it's real. The highly anticipated mixtape will serve as a follow-up to the much-beloved first No Ceilings, and thus it's got quite a reputation to live up too. The tracklist is stacked though, so let's hope Weezy didn't spare quality for quantity.

Bryan "Birdman" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams founded Cash Money Records over twenty years ago.

In 2005, former Hot Boy Lil Wayne created his own CMR imprint, Young Money Entertainment. Young Money released their debut album We Are Young Money in 2009, which featured hits like "We Be Steady Mobbin" and "Bed Rock". Following the album's release, solo careers of Tyga, Nicki Minaj, and Drake took off.

Outside of "Senile", and the singles we are already familar with ("We Alright", "Trophies", "Lookin Ass"), the comp is mainly a spotlight for the less prominent artists on the label.

Top 5 Lil Wayne Verses Of 2015
Lil Wayne has had a tougher year than anyone. Carter V has officially reached Detox status, and though he's promised the Free Weezy Album, we're not waiting up at night for that either. The sad part is, none of it seems to be his fault. Today, however, we got "Glory," a brand new Weezy single, premiered exclusively on TIDAL.
A Complete Timeline Of Lil Wayne & Birdman's Beef
Even as little as nine months ago, no one would have really expected Birdman and Lil Wayne to beef. The two Cash Money titans had a bond that seemed more powerful than your run-of-the-mill rapper/CEO relationship, with their father/son dynamic even birthing an album of its own earlier in the 2000s, and a sense of loyalty that seemed out-of-character for Birdman, at least when you considered his relationships with other Cash Money artists.

Today, (Sept. 27) Lil Wayne turned 33, and as a good father should, Birdman wished his son a happy birthday. We expect that he wasn't able to do so in person, though, as the two are still in the middle of a $51 million lawsuit that Wayne first brought against Stunna in January. Though Birdman is content to continue calling Wayne his son, maintaining that nothing can bring them apart, Wayne is yet to say anything that would imply his feelings have changed since he first called himself a "prisoner" of Cash Money.

A History Of YMCMB Label Drama
Cash Money is an indisputable empire, and at the helm, sits Birdman--and, behind the scenes, his brother Slim. In its nearly 25 years of existence, Cash Money has become one of the most successful hip-hop labels of all-time, though many of its living legends look back on their Cash Money days with disdain. When Cash Money and Young Money joined forces, the empire looked to be unstoppable. Now, it looks as though they'll split apart or crumble together. The recent grievances aired by YMCMB's biggest star aren't the first.
