First things first, before everyone complains I am aware this video is over a month old, but now that Lil Wayne news is slowing down again I will be posting up everything that came out around the release of Tha Carter V, which you haven’t seen on LilWayneHQ yet.

On the night that C5 dropped, Chance The Rapper uploaded a video of himself to his social media thanking Weezy for dropping the album and revealed he kicked everyone out of his studio, so that he could have a private listening session of the project.

Chance also thanked Tunechi for getting him his first ever No. 1 single with “I’m The One“, for getting him his first ever GRAMMY award for “Best Rap Performance“, and for teaching him so much. You can check it out after the jump below!

Journalists Tweet Their Opinions On Rick Ross & Lil Wayne’s “Thug Cry” Collaboration

Journalists Tweet Their Opinions On Rick Ross & Lil Wayne Thug Cry Song

Last night, Rick Ross had a listening session for his upcoming Mastermind album. Some of the people who attended this session tweeted their opinions on the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League-produced track off the project, which is “Thug Cry” featuring Lil Wayne.

The good news is that everyone seems to enjoy the song and especially Weezy F Baby‘s verse. One person even mentioned that the verse is the best they have heard from Wayne since Tha Carter, but to me that doesn’t make any sense.

Anyways, we will be able to hear “Thug Cry” for ourselves soon as the collaboration will appear on Rozay‘s Mastermind album that will be released on March 4th. Some other interesting information about the collabo is that it samples Souls Of Mischief’s classic “93 Til Infinity” record!
