P Town Moe I Aint Heard Of That Freestyle Feat Lil Wayne

8 months later, here is the latest Lil WayneFeature Friday” installment on LilWayneHQ.com; this time it is a feature for P. Town Moe on his “I Ain’t Heard Of That” freestyle over the Slim Thug single produced by The Neptunes.

A lot of you may know this Wayne verse as “Young Money N*gga” from when it appeared on the unofficial Hurricane Se7en/Secret Weapons version of The Suffix mixtape back in 2005.

Thanks to research from Martian Master, we now know that Tunechi recorded this as a feature for fellow 17th Ward rapper P. Town Moe, who Tune had previously worked with before in 2004 on “Where I’m From” off The Prefix tape.

“Understand that your titles don’t impress me; I know I’m the best ’cause the 17th respect me”

You can listen to the full “I Ain’t Heard Of That” freestyle below.

Lil Wayne On The Red Carpet At The Vibe Awards In 2005

For #ThrowbackThursday today, here is some footage of Lil Wayne on the red carpet at the 3rd annual Vibe Awards in Culver City, California back in November, 2005.

Tunechi walked the red carpet backstage with his current girlfriend at the time, Trina, and his Young Money artist at the time, Curren$y. He also did an interview with Fonzworth Bentley from E! and gave a shout out to Christopher El Bueno from Dashboard Entertainment.

At the end of the #TBT clip, which you can watch down below, Weezy announced his next single off Tha Carter II would be “Grown Man“. I’m not too sure what made them change their mind as we all know that “Grown Man” was never made into a single even though I personally think it would have been a great choice! Would you of liked to see it as a single?
