A few days ago, Miami Heat took on Los Angeles Lakers at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida. You can view a photo above and a photo after the jump of Lil Wayne sitting courtside at the game eating some popcorn.

Also after the jump, you can view some footage that has only just surfaced online of Tunechi backstage at the 2011 BET Awards from June 26th last year.

Video: Lil Wayne Vibing Out At 2011 BET Awards Rehearsals

I wasn’t sure whether to post this or not, but I figured most of you would find this video funny 😆 Above, you can watch some footage of Lil Wayne, Drake, Mack Maine and Lil Chuckee arriving to the 2011 BET Awards Rehearsals. You can see Tunechi try and light his cigar a few times with Dhea sitting next to him in a golf cart, and then go through the metal detectors dancing with his Dre Beats on jamming out to most probably a song off Tha Carter IV.

Video: Lil Wayne Says New Single “How To Love” Gives Him Goose Bumps x More

Above, Lil Wayne speaks about his new single “How To Love” with Sway when the two sat down after the taping of Weezy‘s upcoming Unplugged special.

“I can tell you that I’ve never had a single like it, and it’s an amazing song. It’s an amazing song. When I listen to it I get goose bumps,” Weezy said. “And I feel like the song is gonna take me somewhere that I’ve never been musically.”

Tunechi, who recently extended his I Am Still Music Tour through September, is looking to diversify his live show, and “How to Love” would help him do that. “You know that if you come to a Lil Wayne show two years from now, you already know that ‘I’m gonna get rap — some of the best rap — I’m gonna get some guitar, I’m gonna get some singin’, I’m gonna get some dancin’, I’m gonna get some old-school music, and I’m goin’ to a show tonight.’ And I think that’s where this song is directing me to.”

For Birdman Jr., rap just isn’t enough anymore. “I am a musician, and a few years back, I noticed that I wasn’t just a rapper. And I noticed that I didn’t want to do this just to rap,” he said before clarifying his point. “I do want to go down as one of the greatest rappers of all time, but I also want to go down as one of the greatest musicians of all time.

“When you think about it, Tupac is just known as a great rapper; Biggie is just known as a great rapper, Jay-Z — just known as a great rapper,” he continued. “I want to be known as that rapper that turned it all the way up and became the face of the music.”

Actually, Wayne looks to epitomize the word one day. “When they make a billboard and put whoever they gonna put up there to define the word ‘music,’ I wanna be there.” – MTV

After the jump, you can watch videos of Detail speak on producing “How To Love” (says Weezy recorded the song in November 2010), Rick Ross chat about his great relationship with Lil Wayne and the John” single, and Birdman talk about Tune‘s Tha Carter IV album (says he thinks it will be one of the best albums in history).
