Lil Wayne Sued For Threatening To Kill His Bus Driver

 Lil Wayne

 

Lil Wayne is facing a new lawsuit –for allegedly threatening to kill his former tour bus driver Mark Jones, and causing him emotional distress.

Jones, states the problem started during the Buffalo stop of Wayne’s tour when he pulled over to get gas. This apparently enraged Wayne who began to start cursing because the refuelling stop delayed the trip to get the hotel. So he began to threaten Jones making him afraid and continue driving without refuelling. Jones claims that the rapper continued to curse, threatening to unload his pistol and kill him.

Jones is suing Wayne for false imprisonment, assault, and emotional distress. Jones was hired to drive Wayne and his crew around for his 2014 summer concert tour.

It is not the first Wayne has been hit with legal issues. In July 2007 he was sentenced to jail after a concert in New York. Wayne was charged with once count of criminal weapons possession and one charge of criminal possession of a loaded weapon.

In 2010 he faced another legal issue. An Arizona judge sentenced Wayne to three years’ probation stemming from his 2008 arrest in the state over drugs and firearm possession charges.

Lil Wayne is also currently in the middle of a lawsuit, suing Cash Money Records after claiming he was a ‘prisoner’ at the label after refusing to release his long-awaited album Tha Carter V.

Miami Beach Police were alarmed after an apparent hoax call, reporting four people had been shot at Lil Wayne’s mansion.

The department reassured that this was the case as they tweeted, “Unfortunately this appears to be a ‘swatting’ call.”

A spokesman for the Miami Beach police department, Ernesto Rodriguez confirmed that they had received a call around 12.40pm ET from an anonymous male who claiming he had shot four people at the Young Money star’s home.

Rodriguez stated, police searched the home and no locations of a gunman or any victims were encountered.

The department posted another tweet saying the department handles all calls seriously, “‘swatting’ is a possibility but MBPD does not take chances when responding to these types of calls.”

Weezy is said to be okay as it was reported by his label that the hip-hop star wasn’t home during the shootout. A tweet posted  by YoungMoneySite reads, “Wayne is okay. Wasn’t home during alleged events.”

Lil Wayne is yet to comment on the alleged shooting.

Lil Wayne Squashes Feud With Justin Bieber’s Manager Scooter Braun

Lil Wayne And Scooter Braun

Lil Wayne has squashed his feud with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, according to TMZ. After a video was released of Lil Wayne threatening Scooter, it appears the rapper has forgiven and moved on.

TMZ reports, Weezy and Scooter have resolved their feud with other. After hearing that Scooter called fellow Young Money rapper Lil Twist a ‘bad influence’ on Justin, Lil Wayne vented over the situation.

The video in which Lil Wayne appears in can be seen saying: “I heard this b**cha** n***a Scooter talkin’ s**t about my little brother.”

However it seems that the two have put their differences aside and are moving forward.

Phew. The beef couldn’t have been too serious since Lil Wayne and Young Money Entertainment recently forgave Justin for his N-word scandal.

When two videos of a young Justin making racist jokes and saying the N-word appeared questions were raised whether his pal Lil Twist at Young Money Entertainment would stand by him.

Regardless the controversy, Lil Wayne and Young Money forgave Justin. TMZ reported: “Everyone on the label has interacted with Bieber extensively and there has not been a hint of racism on Justin’s part.”

Mack Maine, President of Young Money Entertainment, told the website: “the majority of Justin’s crew is black, and, ‘Bieber does not have a slave mentality. He treats his people with respect.’”

Chris Brown and Justin Bieber Collaborate on New Song

Justin Bieber and Chris Brown confirmed that they were working together on a new single dedicated to their fans when Bieber posted a picture from the studio captioning it: “Studio, me and CB did 1 for the fans.”

The troubled singers who have been caught up in their own share of controversy previously collaborated on Next 2 You for Chris’ 2011 album F.A.M.E.

According to HollywoodLife.com, a source tells the website it was the first time the pair have been reunited since Chris’ release from jail.

The source says: “They talked about how they admire and respect one another and how they are going to put all of their time and energy into this music. They’re both sick of being distracted by the outside world and are both getting back to the basics.”

In the meantime, it appears Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and Lil Wayne have put their differences to a side. Last month, Wayne was seen insulting Scooter in defence of his protégé Lil Twist.

According to TMZ, they have put it behind them, drawing it up to a “huge misunderstanding.”

J. Cole Apologises for Autism Lyric

J Cole

J. Cole has confessed to a mistake for a lyric referring to autism in a collaboration track with Drake. The rapper has issued a sincere apology for the offensive lyric on his blog Dreamvillian in which he states, ‘You deserve medals, not disrespect’.

On the Drake supported song, Jodeci Freestyle, the Roc Nation star raps: “I’m artistic, you ni**as is autistic, retarded.” The lyric has caused outrage and anger amongst his fans, which Cole has said to have prompted complaints.

In the letter on his blog, Cole explained that an apology was ‘necessary’ after the reactions of his fans have expressed towards him.

Cole is not the first artist to cause controversy with his lyrics. Lil Wayne lost an endorsement deal with Pepsi in May because of a lyric making a crude reference about Civil Rights figure Emmett Till. Furthermore, Rick Ross was also dropped after Reebok cut ties with him after a lyric in which the rapper appeared to condone date rape.

Read his heartfelt apology below.

Autism Speaks

Recently there’s been a trend that includes rappers saying something offensive, only to be attacked for it in the media and pressured to apologize. I have to be completely honest and say there’s a part of me that resents that. I view rap similar to how I view comedy. It’s going to ruffle feathers at times. It’s going to go “too far”. I do not believe that an apology is needed every time someone is offended, especially when that apology is really only for the sake of saving an endorsement or cleaning up bad press.

With that said, this is not the case today. This letter is sincere. This apology IS necessary.

In a recent verse on the song “Jodeci Freestyle”, I said something highly offensive to people with Autism. Last week, when I first saw a comment from someone outraged about the lyric, I realized right away that what I said was wrong. I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough to say something so hurtful. What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better.

To the entire Autism community who expressed outrage, I’m moved and inspired by your passion, and I’m amazed at how strong you are as a unit. I have now read stories online from parents about their struggles and triumphs with raising an Autistic child and I admire how incredibly strong you have to be to do so. It’s touching. It also makes what I said even more embarrassing for me. I feel real shame. You have every right to be angry.

To anyone suffering from Autism, either mildly or severely, I am sorry. I’m bound to make mistakes in my life, but in my heart I just want to spread Love.

I want to educate myself more on Autism, and I’ll gladly own my mistake and serve as an example to today’s generation that there’s nothing cool about mean-spirited comments about someone with Autism. People with this disorder and their loved ones have to go through so much already, the last thing they need is to hear something as ignorant as what I said. I understand.

To the parents who are fighting through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger’s Syndrome; to all those overcoming Autism. You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology.

Much Love

-Cole

Lil Wayne Announces ‘Tha Carter V’ Is Final Album Before Retiring From Music

 

Lil Wayne has announced he will be retiring from music after he releases his album The Carter V. The Young Money boss is currently working on his tenth album I Am Not A Human Being II and will release the fifth installment of Tha Carter series after.

When asked what fans will be expecting after his next record, Wayne told MTV News: “It’s like a Carter V”.

When he was asked why he doesn’t just re – title his next album release I Am Not A Human Being II as part of Tha Carter series, he said: “Because I know y’all want me around for a little bit, and Carter V is my last album. Man, I’ve been rappin’ since I was 8 years old. I’m 30 now, man. That’s a long time, man.”

The rapper admitted that he sometimes loses his passion for music, which he then turns to focus on other projects such as his Trukfit skating clothing line.

He explained: “When I love to do something, I’m fully focused on it and it only. And music sometimes is not that ‘it.

“I signed my contract at 11, I went platinum at 14. I’m 30 now. Thank God I haven’t put out an album that hasn’t went platinum. To just keep it goin’ like that, I think not only am I being greedy, I’m fooling myself to think that it will continue to be that great.”
