free-weezy-lil-wayne-thatgrapejuice

Lil Wayne is aptly declaring his independence on Independence Day.

The rapper, who has been in a legal wrangle with Cash Money label head Birdman in recent months, has taken to Jay Z‘s TIDAL to release what he’s christened his most prolific effort yet – the ‘Free Weezy Album.’

Interestingly rolled out as a stream (rather than a purchasable LP), the project looks to be the fruit of the “deal” Weezy announced he made with Jigga last month.

And while there’s no one yet on the long-awaited arrival of ‘The Carter V,’ Wayne’s newest collection of songs is already generating bountiful buzz.

Cover Star: Brick City Belt Janet Jackson Jam ‘No Sleeep’

After a brief rest on the bench, Cover Star returns this week with British outfit Brick City, who tackle Janet Jackson‘s seductive comeback cut ‘No Sleeep’

How did they fare? Hit ‘PLAY’ below to find out [cover commences at 0.48 mark]

While it was telling at points that the group had – per their own admission – just learnt the track, they still turned in a commendable rendition.

Their harmony driven delivery served up a fresh take on the simply sung song and actually has us salivating at the prospect of Janet garnishing with similar sounding adlibs when performing it live.

Kudos!

It’s a good time to Nicki Minaj right now.

As her ‘PinkPrint’ release has passed the Gold mark in the U.S. and etches closer to platinum, the rapper/singer/songwriter is also set to shine on the big screen via the third installment of the Ice Cube-led ‘Barbershop’ franchise.

Now, as if that isn’t enough to celebrate, all eyes are now on her as she has notched her 65th Hot 100 hit with the Meek Mill & Chris Brown-helmed ‘All Eyes On You.’  The chart triumph sees the rapstress slide in just a few steps closer to leading the pack of “most Hot 100 entries” by any female…of any genre (only Taylor Swift & Aretha Franklin have more as we reported here).

Elsewhere, charts reveal Swift isn’t the only country diva at risk of seeing her Hot 100 record threatened. For, in addition to setting a new chart record this week, Bruno Mars‘ monster hit ‘Uptown Funk’ is just two weeks away from upstaging Leann Rimes‘How Do I Live’ in a big way.

Did You Miss It?: Lil’ Scrappy Suffers Backlash After Slamming Caitlyn Jenner/Transgender Community

(photo source)

While the world gets ready for the 2015 ESPY Awards and the courage celebration of famed athlete turned reality star Caitlyn Jenner, there’s one person she shouldn’t expect to get a standing O from on July 15th ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Lil Scrappy.

The ‘No Problem’ hitmaker has quite the problem on his hands after a recent interview with our buds at VladTV saw him go all the way in on the transgender community – namely Jenner – when he proclaimed:

 ”For the world of young kids, for the world of young little boys, stick to what you were made to be. If you got a penis, be a penis,” he said.

Citing racism as part of the reason Caitlyn has been so accepted, Scrappy continued:

”No Black man can stand up and say, ‘You know, my whole life I felt like a woman, but I was just holding it down for my kids and my b-tch.’ We say that sh-t, n—gga, we’d get assassinated– by us [other black people]. We [black people] don’t play that sh-t.”

See the interview below that has the LGBTQ community and supporters in an uproar:
