Frenzy Friday. The weekend is practically here and while we're all waiting on the 15th to turn up, Drake and Lil Wayne are banking $3,000,000. Easy. That's not baby money, but speaking of babies, looks like there's a small update on Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa's child. Big news? Not as big as Big Sean possibly taking a swipe at Game. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Young Money

We've all come to expect Drake and Lil Wayne as millionaires. No where close to billionaires, but when you can add an extra zero to your bank account, no one seems to be complaining. But aside from touring and album sales, how can they be making so much money? Celebrity Networth has the inside on their quiet $3,000,000 hustle:

Drake, Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne

Have you ever wanted to know how much artists like Lil Wayne and Drake make in royalties from streaming their music on Pandora? Yesterday, Pandora's CEO Tim Westergren used a blog post to shed some light on how much his company is paying artists each year, from the most popular to the relatively obscure. The purpose of his blog post was to promote internet radio as a viable source of income for musicians, at a time when the music business in general is struggling to survive. Here is how much a sampling of popular and lesser known artists are making per year off Pandora's streaming royalties: Lil Wayne - $3 million Drake - $3 million Coldplay - $1 million Adele - $1 million Wiz Khalifa - $1 million (Celebrity Networth)

$3 million off Pandora alone? Is that even legal? Give it up to Lil Wayne and Drake, as long as they keep making their radio bangers, they're guaranteed spots on Forbes. No wonder Lil Wayne won't quit making music. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Proof's In The Pudding

There's no telling when we can expect to see Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa's child brought onto this Earth. If we were gamblers, we'd guess that it'd all be taped and turned into a reality television show. But instead of having to wait for the post-birth, Media Take Out has the inside on what the baby's sex is:

MTO WORLD EXCLUSIVE: We Know The SEX Of Amber And Wiz' Baby . . . And We Have PROOF TOO!!! October 12, 2012: Amber and Wiz are having a . . . . BABY BOY!!! According to their registry - which calls for a BLUE bassinet and a "CROWN PRINCE" crib - the two are preparing for the birth of their son. AWWWWW . . . we can't WAIT until he's born. (Media Take Out)

For some reason is seems like we all kinda knew that they were having a boy. You can only keep so many secrets these days. Any guesses on what they'll name the little cutie? Cam Jr? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Let The Games Begin

It's no wonder that Big Sean and Game haven't collaborated as of late (have they ever?), especially when you think about that mini-beef that Game started, dissing Big Sean for rapping about Benihana serving won tons back in 2010. But could Big Sean have finally, kinda, sort of, responded back in his own witty way? All Hip Hop Rumors has more:

A few weeks ago, Game announced that he was going to name his upcoming album, Jesus Piece. Well, in a recent interview with XXL Magazine, Big Sean revealed that he had just recorded a track entitled "Jesus Piece" for his upcoming sophomore album, Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player. The new track features Nas and was produced by No I.D. Check out what Big Sean said about the track below: "It's a classic hip-hop song. We don't just talk about Jesus pieces in general, we talk about Jesus pieces and the impact they had around the time in our life when we got our first Jesus pieces, or when we saw our idols with their Jesus pieces." So, did Big Sean steal this idea from Game, who had previously announced that Jesus Piece was going to be the name of his fifth studio album? Can we expect a Game diss towards Big Sean in the near future because of the duplicate name? (All Hip Hop Rumors)

In Sean's defense, he's never really tried to embrace any type of beef. If anything, he just makes incredible music. But could this be more intentional than any of us could think? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip blogs.
