Lil Wayne Just Signed To Roc Nation
After being estranged from Cash Money Records for over two years, Lil Wayne has found a new family with Roc Nation.
Wayne fans have been desperate for his long-awaited album Carter V. However, the New Orleans rapper has been embattled in a lawsuit with his former father figure Birdman to the tune of $51 million dollars. As a result, his new music was held hostage in the process.
Nevertheless, it looks like Weezy F. Baby fans are finally getting what they want. At a recent performance at Slippery Rock University in Western Pennsylvania, the former Hot Boy announced to the crowd that he had signed with Roc Nation. He said, “Is it cool if I just say it? It’s the Roc. You know I’m a member of that team now.”
While this is obviously a super dope move for Wayne’s career, it does come as a surprise to many. Wayne’s relationship with Roc Nation leader Jay-Z has been fairly complicated in the past. The two MC’s have worked together on hits like “Mr. Carter,” “Swagga Like Us,” and “Hello Brooklyn.” However, in Jay -Z’s 2011 song, “H.A.M.”, the Brooklyn MC rapped, “I’m like really half a billi’ nigga, really you got Baby money / Keep it real with niggas, niggas ain’t got my lady money.” It was an obvious diss to Birdman. On his song “It’s Good” that same year, Wayne clapped back on behalf of the Cash Money founder with the lyrics, “Talkin’ ’bout Baby money? / I got your Baby money / Kidnap yo’ bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.”
For now, all of that drama seems to be in the past, and with Lil Wayne on Roc Nation’s roster, we could finally see the explosive return of one of the mot prolific rappers in the past twenty years.
So when is Carter V going to drop?
