"You snakes, stop hiding in the grass/ Sooner or later I'll cut it knock the blades in yo ass." Remember that Lil' Wayne line from the timeless classic, "Go DJ"? Well it's time for Weezy to put down the weed and pull out the weed wacker as his neighbors are beginning to complain about the size of his foliage.
According to reports, the grass and weeds surrounding his New Orleans mansion have grown higher than his tube socks, and have become something of an eyesore for this otherwise clean-cut community.
Lil Wayne has been told to cut his grass. The Times-Picayune reports the rapper was cited for high grass and weeds at his 10,000-square-foot mansion in a gated subdivision in Kenner, La., a suburb of New Orleans. The Code Enforcement Department issued the ticket to Dwayne Carter, the New Orleans-born singer's given name, sometime between Feb. 26 and March 2, according to a list released by the city.(Huffington Post)
To be fair, no one has time to cut the grass when you're mobbin' with your goons, wildin' out to Beyonce's "Single Ladies."
In other news ... Drizzy Drake is once again dealing with "Marvin's Room" melee. The song that never died has become the case that pushes forward as the chick heard in the background (you know -- the one on the phone) claims Drake still owes her a few racks.
Rapper Drake thinks the woman who is suing him for royalties from his hit song "Marvin's Room" is entitled to the amount of money she's already received --- zero dollars and zero cents. Ericka Lee -- who provided the voice of the girl on voicemail for the song -- filed a lawsuit last month claiming Drake promised a co-writing credit and split of the profits on the hit song ... as well as claiming Drake sent her texts saying the song was "s**t without you."(TMZ)
Drake insists she wasn't with him shootin' in the gym and therefore, is entitled nothing but a couple Patron shots and a meeting in the bathroom stall. Cold world.
Drake filed his response last week, saying he never promised her a dime and that "she consented to the use of her voice in the song 'Marvin's Room' for no compensation." Drake also says the two never had a romantic relationship, as she claims, and he never threatened her over her complaints about getting paid for the song.(TMZ)
SOHH Watcha Think: Drake's song was wildly popular and mega successful, is shorty entitled to some of that "Marvin's Room" money?
Welp. Looks like today is Young Money Day. Check out this "Stay Schemin" freestyle by Mr. Outta My Lima Bean himself, Cory Gunz.
