Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne displayed his deejaying skills for the first-time heading into 2012 after cutting and scratching at a Miami nightclub on New Year’s Eve.
Footage of Weezy showing off his deejay skills hit the Internet Monday (January 2).
Alicia Keys, Kanye West joined the celebrity DJ club in 2011, and now it looks like Lil Wayne wants to be down. He made his DJ debut on New Year’s Eve at Dream Night Club in Miami, and Weezy’s not bad, but he just gets distracted and starts rapping. (The Urban Daily)
On the other side of the United States, Kanye West got his deejaying on in Las Vegas.
Kanye West had Sin City spinning to his sounds as he celebrated 2012 at a New Year’s Eve bash. The rapper-turned-DJ, who goes by the DJ alias Yeezy World Peace, made his stateside debut on the turntables at the grand opening of 1OAK nightclub at The Mirage in Las Vegas. Partygoers danced into the new year with old school records from Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, mixed with 2011’s biggest hits. He was joined by his “All of the Lights” collaborator Fergie, who hosted the bash, as well as his G.O.O.D. Music family including Big Sean and Kid Cudi. (Rap-Up)
Earlier in the week, speculation developed on Ye’s intent to bank $1 million for a New Year’s Eve party.
After refusing to settle for less than $1 million to perform at a New Year’s Eve party, Kanye West went back on a hunt to land a gig two days before the ball drops. “He doesn’t want to get on a stage for less than a mil,” a source said. The “Watch the Throne” rapper is considering heading west to Vegas to DJ at an Eve bash — but at a much lower rate. (New York Post)
Whether or not Wayne sticks to deejaying, his latest solo albm continues to spin off store shelves.
