  • °Jahsehxxx°©

    Em should be dissing himself. He out here cappin at 18 yr old rappers. When as a legend, he let this shit happen. He even had the nerve to diss Wayne. Em you were nice but fuck your last 3 albums.

    • logan k 32

      Wat he say bout wayne

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        He didnt diss Wayne. He said “Lil Pump, Lil Xan imitate Lil Wayne”

    • Nathan Bryant

      He did not dis Wayne. You need to listen again. For a split second I thought he did too, be he raps so fast but he didn’t.

      He mentioned a lot of these mumble rappers that have rap names that start with ’Lil’ and then said: ”imitate Lil Wayne”. Listen carefully.

      This is what he said:

      ”Lil Pump, Lil Xan imitate Lil Wayne”

      • TrukFitNANCY

        What song

    • Nukey

      Em just stated these new rappers are imitating Lil Wayne how is that a Diss?

      • Skrrrt Cobain

        ‘think I’m lyin’ 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    • N.O. Samson

        • Day1_la_laker

          nah

    • Skrrrt Cobain

    • David D

      True

    • Giraffe Boy

      he so trash

    • MuddyCupSavage

    • MuddyCupSavage

      Nah he gave wayne credit for a lot of these new styles

  • 🐐🐐

    C5

  • Wordplay 187

    Would y’all like a mixtape after C5 or do you just want tge album with nothing else attached to it

  • Wordplay 187

    Ik what he said I’m saying like get C5 then a few months later get a mixtape

    • Nijee

      Yeah but Wayne needs to focus on putting out Albums more than mixtapes due to proving to his fans & critics that he can sell music in 2018

  • Wordplay 187

    Truly russ be spitting just he comes off as narcissistic and people don’t like he comes off

  • Nijee

    Wayne probably working on New Album Series with new style & approach similar Carter Series & IANAHB Series

  • Tune

    CV Tracklist guests be like : Drake, Nicki (maybe), Kanye (maybe), Wiz, Vice Versa(no lie), Hoody(maybe), Quavo, Rae Sremmurd.

    • Nijee

      I hope he don’t put Vice Versa on C5

    • BETTER NOT BE

  • Tune

    I want a more other album then CV from Wayne

  • HIDE

    Tech N9ne is independent and sells more than me💔💔😰 why won’t my fans stream me😭😭

    • Day1_la_laker

      he really did

  • Giraffe Boy
  • YMOB SO REAL

    Blood Klot should have made the NC2 cut it’s arguably better than most of NC2

    • Giraffe Boy

      ok

      • YMOB SO REAL

        Ok!!

  • Tune

    36 years is not old.

    • Weezy4prez

      People just think hes old af cause hes been a millionaire for 20 years. Hes been in headlines since grown adults adults were kids, and kids (i consider people up to 25 kids) werent even born or just babies. He accomplished so much at a young age and did it continuosly. Hes a monumental figure in american pop culture history. All that together gives people the impression hes alot older than he is. I mean how many 36 year olds have the accomplishments, accolades, lime light and fame that jes had and carried for that length. Literally almost nobody

      • N.O. Samson

        Well put 👏

  • FLOMETHEUS

    Hol’up. I’ma Listen to Real Quick. Lol

  • FLOMETHEUS

  • THIS WAS A GOOD WATCH

  • Jon Stewart 💳

    Not getting 2k this year. Fuck 2k, made it next to impossible to change your clothes, hair, tattoos in the game efficiently and easily. Fuck them still using the same bum ass servers since 08’ I will not pay these fucks anymore. I’m switching to FIFA

    • The Weeknd

      Looks lit, They’re trying to make it a more player to universe interaction. like all the real life career mode features, workouts, milulti-game rec center, more games at park, more accolade package options, more home and every day life interaction, etc. They trynna make it like an all sports version of GTA

      • Jon Stewart 💳

        They can keep it, I’ll be back for 2k20 when they iron out the bugs for this game

        • The Weeknd

          The bugs are already ironed. 2k18 was the garbage run. This will be legit

  • The Weeknd

    Our great great grand children’s great great grand children will be getting C5 like “wtf”

  • The Weeknd

    Shit dropping next century

  • The Weeknd

    If wayne was smart he would contact 2k and tell them to livestream C5 at park for the debut

  • The Weeknd

    Winter > Summer
    Summer has always been overrated, shit boring af, too hot, too many bugs out, too much drama, etc. Fall/Winter is the world in its prime. Back to school, football/basketball, new iphone releases, new 2k/ madden, new fashion, halloween, thanksgiving, Christmas, new years, snow, good vibes, love, etc

    • 🐐🐐

      Trueee

      • The Weeknd

        All summer got is 4th of july and pool parties….drama ends up happening and ruining both

        • 🐐🐐

          I love winter bruh

  • N.O. Samson

    Imagine if that rumor that Dhea was pregnant last year (or whenever it was) is true, but Wayne just kept it quiet because their relationship is very private anyway

  • N.O. Samson

    What if the rumor that they got married is also true? 🤔

  • 🐐🐐

    😂😂

  • 🐐🐐

    Wonder when the next time we gone see wayne and stunna together

    • N.O. Samson

      C5 release party

  • N.O. Samson

    Reach

  • N.O. Samson

    Nah, C5’s coming soon remember!…or so they say 🤷🏾‍♂️😂

  • N.O. Samson

    When I saw the photo, Wayne or YM didn’t come to mind, I didn’t think anything of it, but it makes sense I guess

  • N.O. Samson

    Dunno. Kanye? That’s the first person I thought of, but even that I don’t agree with tbh. I just think it’s a metaphor or whatever cause of the A/B side album

  • N.O. Samson

    “When the counter offer is lower than what we deserve…”. What offer? If you put the two quotes together, @deadlyeffect might be on to something here 🤔

  • N.O. Samson

    Or maybe I’m just reaching myself

  • The Weeknd

    Wayne is done, he didn’t obey the commands from the powers that be. It’s not a coincidence that he’s losing mainstream recognition and being obsolete from “the top”. They break you down slowly until you’re all done, then they push u to the side once worthless

    • N.O. Samson

      Facts. I been saying this. People keep saying it’s Birdman but there’s more to it than that. Same with Nicki

      • The Weeknd

        Facts it really goes deep, Birdman paid his price, wayne refused, so did nicki

        • 🐐🐐

          Only thing that can save wayne is C5 that’s the reason I think he hasn’t dropped it he’s scared to drop it because the rest of his career is riding on it he probably think it’s great you should if your an artist but he probably thinking about how we will accept it as fans

          • The Weeknd

            He’s losing confidence every year, it’s getting disgusting at this point. He’s so little and shifty nowadays. He’s not humble like that just because. Old wayne didn’t give a fuck, he carried himself like a God, nowadays he doesn’t take care of himself, he’s way too humble, no longer hungry or dedicated and lets two yes men run his entire label.

            • 🐐🐐

              He can definitely get it back with C5 his whole career depends on C5

        • N.O. Samson

          Facts

      • The Weeknd

        Look what nicki going through rn, it’s something she didn’t do right, the “top dogs” pulled the plug

        • N.O. Samson

          Yep. You even have labels like Atlantic trying to persuade/pay other female rappers to diss Nicki, and labels trying to make their own Nicki etc. This Nicki hate came outta nowhere all of a sudden, there’s a reason for that (the industry). What do you think they wanted them to do that they didn’t? I wonder why all of YMCMB is suffering apart from Drake 🤔

          • The Weeknd

            These artists are all assigned with different sacrifices and tasks to follow through with that are given to them from the elites trying to rollout their agenda. Most artists do what their told because they are puppets but a few like Wayne, tupac, etc rebelled and they ended up with hell to pay

            • N.O. Samson

              100%. I agree. And the artists that spoke out either ‘fell off’, ended up crazy & got addicted to drugs and/or ended up dead. I wonder where Nicki & Wayne’s career is gonna go from here & if they will make the sacrifices etc eventually. Nicki already seems angry at the industry & is insulting/talking about people

      • Day1_la_laker

        foh wit that bs. aint no “powers” my nigga

  • The Weeknd

    Those 2012-13 seizures were his warnings, he still didn’t comply so they pulled the plug on his career

  • The Weeknd

    Everything went downhill after the seizures

  • The Weeknd

    C5 not coming out until wayne does what he’s supposed to do for “them”

  • 🐐🐐

    Lmao

  • The Weeknd

    We used to see this nigga wayne with a new bitch every week, bad ass thick red bones lol now he be posted with white teenage skaters

    • Crip Curry

      Dude get off that legal shit you’re smoking, there’s no “powers” controlling Wayne’s career. He fell off because of his label situation. He’ll be back soon.

      • The Weeknd

        -sleep sheep

    • Patrick H

      Real.

  • 🐐🐐

    Yeezy sneakers underrated

    • Patrick H

      My fav song off the first D6 mixtape.

  • 🐐🐐

    No lie wayne career is on the line with C5 he tying to make this as great as possible he’s really sitting back and making sure it’s perfect and as a fan that’s all you want you want your favorite artist to be on top ian even rushing C5 anymore ik it’s gone be 🔥 because it has to be big facts

    • The Weeknd

      D6 gave him some reload power but it just wasn’t enough to make the spark. He just not giving us that signature weezy f baby feel anymore

      • 🐐🐐

        All on him at this points as fans all you can do is wait

  • 🐐🐐

    Fuck saving wayne career this this can save Ym too

  • 🐐🐐

    I hate when niggas be like y’all gay for worrying about wayne dreads or his style niggas don’t understand his dreads and the way he dress changed the rap culture I hate seeing this nigga with blonde dreads 🤦🏽‍♂️They was straight when he first had em but now they horrible and he needs a new stylist

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

    Y’all on bath salts.

  • N.O. Samson

    I know what THEY don’t wanna tell you

  • Dwaynewayne

  • Dwaynewayne

    I wonder if anyone ballsy enough to drop same day as Wayne

  • Dwaynewayne

    Would be dope if Wayne did a listening party for c5 on tidal somewhere in the middle of nowhere , and rocked up with his crew and dhea with birdman and CM…would be legendary.

    • Patrick H

      Dhea <3
