Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is heating up everyone’s week with the release of his new remix to fellow hip-hop artist Future’s “Sh!t.”
On the unexpected new track, Weezy F. Baby speaks on his split from longtime mentor Baby’s Cash Money record label.
“I’m bumpin’ Carter V on the iPod / My b*tch mad as hell ’cause it ain’t out yet / She said soon as these ni**as see your new sh*t / They gon’ have to give their styles back,” he raps. He also addresses his highly-publicized fallout with Birdman and Cash Money. “Did my time at Cash Money / Time served and released, but this agent ain’t free.” (Rap-Up)

This week, rap veteran Master P addressed whether or not Wayne could possibly land at No Limit Records
“This is definitely historical,” Master P said in an interview when asked if Wayne could find himself doing more work with him. “We never did nothing [like this,] it’s No Limit 24 anniversary. So we call it No Limit 24k. Anything is possible but Wayne is making good music. I rapped on his record, he rapped on my ‘Power’ record and we’re going to build a relationship. From here, wherever it go – it’s all official over here.” (“Sway In The Morning”)
Keeping an optimistic view, Young Money’s Christina Milian said she hoped Baby and Weezy would patch up their problems last weekend.
“It’s a little difficult,” she said. “I’m on the same record label. I’m on Young Money, so it’s a little difficult when it comes to business. I understand the circumstance for all of them. I think everyone’s trying to work it out and I wish the best. Honestly it’s been an empire that has been built between Baby and with Lil Wayne. You can only hope for the best and big things for the both of them, that they continue this grind that they have. They basically paved the way for people like myself having the opportunity to become successful. I pray it all works out. I know he prays the same thing, nothing but the best.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
Instead of picking sides, The LOX’s Styles P compared Wayne’s situation to his stint on music mogul Diddy’s Bad Boy Records a few weeks ago.
“I know how it feels to be on a label and want to get off a label and not be there. I’ve been in them situations so I know for a fact that you, me or anyone else doesn’t know all of the details. You could just go off of what you, what’s pretty much in front of your face. But that don’t mean you get to see what’s in the locker room.” (VLAD TV)
Young Money’s Nicki Minaj recently suggested the war of words between Wayne and the Cash Money boss likely came from Weezy’s passion to have his music come out.
“Cash Money is blessed, thank you for asking. We are a family and just like in families, we have our moments. But, you know what, I’ve gotten so much closer to Wayne lately. Wayne is his own person. He’s a businessman and whatever decision Wayne makes, I would never in my life speak against it publicly, even if I didn’t agree. So my thing is, and Baby has always been one of my best friends in the game. They love each other and it’s family. It’ll never go to another level. Everybody loves to hype things up but artists are emotional. We are emotional when it comes to our projects and when it comes to our fans and what our fans want and when they want it and sometimes that causes us to, you know, act emotional.” (Power 106 FM)
