Lil Wayne Speaks On Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, Lil Weezyana Fest, Fatherhood, DJ Jubilee & More

Michael Smith recently chatted to Lil Wayne on his ESPN Radio podcast called “His & Hers“, which you can listen to below, about the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, what he lost from the natural disaster, his hometown New Orleans, and how he is dealing with his current court cases.

Weezy also talked about the New Orleans Saints, his upcoming “Lil Weezyana Fest“, confirms that he will be bringing out DJ Jubilee and more surprise guests, as well as that he will be performing songs off the Hot Boys album Get It How U Live!! like “Block Burner” and “Neighborhood Superstar“.

Before they wrapped up the interview, Tunechi discussed being a father to his 4 children, what they are all into, how it is having a 16-year-old daughter, and what he likes to do with his kids. I have to personally say that I think it’s so cool Tune‘s oldest son is into his soccer and got Cristiano Ronaldo‘s approval. Maybe one day we will see Dwayne Michael Carter III playing for Manchester United FC haha!

TIDAL Confirm They Will Be Streaming Lil Wayne’s “Lil Weezyana Fest” Exclusively

TIDAL Confirm They Will Be Streaming Lil Wayne Lil Weezyana Fest Exclusively

TIDAL have confirmed they will be streaming Lil Wayne‘s upcoming 1st annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” exclusively that will be taking place from 7PM at Champions Square’s Bold Sphere Music in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 28th to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

It was first speculated that Jay Z‘s streaming service would be streaming the music festival, but that was put under question when Birdman filed a lawsuit against TIDAL claiming they didn’t have the rights to release the Free Weezy Album, or any other Tunechi music.

Even though the lawsuit is still open, it has not stopped TIDAL from confirming that they will be streaming the “Lil Weezyana Fest” for their registered users, who will be able to see Weezy reunite from the former Cash Money Millionaires: Mannie Fresh, Turk, and Juvenile!

Are Lil Wayne & Birdman Attempting To Squash Their Beef?

Lil Wayne & Birdman Attempting To Squash Their Beef

Yesterday, Birdman uploaded the photo above to Instagram with a caption reading: “4Life LFLS YMCMB“. With that caption, it seems like Baby is telling everyone Weezy will be his son for life, which is what he basically said throughout his interview with Angie Martinez too.

What’s interesting is that Mack Maine also uploaded a picture of Birdman and Tunechi together for “#ThrowbackThursday” on his Instagram page (see below). Do you think these are hints that Baby and Tune are wanting to make peace and squash their beef?

I wouldn’t normally make a post about something like this on LilWayneHQ as it could very well be a reach, but it has been a slow few days for Wayne news!

Lil Slim Talks Introducing Lil Wayne To Birdman, Cash Money Screwing Him Over & More

Lil Slim Talks Introducing Lil Wayne To Birdman, Cash Money Screwing Him Over & More

Shawn Setaro from The Cipher interviewed Mikel “Lil Slim” Pettis for just over an hour in a podcast last month about Cash Money Records, releasing 3 albums on the record label, introducing Lil Wayne and Juvenile to Birdman, how he first came across Weezy, growing up with Juvie, and plenty more.

If you didn’t already know, Lil Slim was one of the first music artists to be signed with Cash Money before he left the record label, because they also didn’t pay him what he was owed. He even told a few stories in the conversation about how CM took advantage of their New Orleans artists, as well as when he first realized that they are a unreliable business.

During the interview, Slim explained why he decided to introduce a 10-year-old kid to Baby as that was Wayne‘s age at the time. He also revealed the understanding of the meet was so that Tunechi would be Slim‘s artist on his own record label. However, Slim says that Cash Money went and signed Wayne up behind his back, told Tune to stay away from him, and how to this day Wayne still doesn’t know this story.
