Young Money APAA Sports Release New Commercial For 2020 NFL Season With A Voice-Over From Lil Wayne [Video]

Young Money APAA Sports Release New Commercial For 2020 NFL Season With A Voice-Over From Lil Wayne

Young Money APAA Sports have released a commercial for the new 2020 NFL season and it includes a voice-over from Lil Wayne.

“It’s time! 2020 has been a year like no other, but it’s time to get back to work and to the game they love. It’s time for the rookies to put on that NFL jersey for the first time. It’s time for some veterans to make their mark in a new city and a new uniform. It’s time for the guys who face diversity in the past, and we know something about comebacks. And it’s time for champions to chase another ring and build that legacy. And it’s time for those who are tryna get that first Super Bowl ring. We know who we are – we are Young Money, Young Mula Baby!”

You can check out the advertisement after the jump below. What are your thoughts on it? The voice-over reminds me of the “What’s G” commercial Wayne did for Gatorade back in 2009!

Lil Wayne Wanted To Stop The Release Of Da Drought 3 To Change The “My Flow Is Nasty Like C-Y-Philis” Lyric Because Of A Spelling Mistake [Video]

Lil Wayne Wanted To Stop The Release Of Da Drought 3 To Change The My Flow Is Nasty Like C-Y-Philis Lyric Because Of A Spelling Mistake

First thing’s first with this interview, all of the blogs are currently reporting that Lil Wayne‘s “Weezy F Baby and the F is for Fenomenal” lyric was a mistake and he wanted to change it when he found out he had spelled the word “Phenomenal” wrong. I fully believe this is wrong. Even though Cortez Bryant says this was the lyric, you can tell he was not fully sure.

When you work out what else Tez says about the bar, such as Tunechi wanting to stop the release when he found out how to spell the word correctly and that it was too late as it had already been put out – “Yes” with Pharrell was actually a leak and has never been officially released. Also the next line after the “Phenomenal” one uses wordplay on “typo” to show Tune knows exactly what he did.

While they had just been speaking about the Da Drought 3 project, I think we can all fairly agree that the lyric Cortez was thinking about was “My flow is nasty like c-y-philis” off the “Ride For My Niggas” aka “Sky Is The Limit” song. If you didn’t know, “cyphilis” is actually spelled like “syphilis“.

Anyway, in this conversation with Andrew Barber that you can watch in full below, Bryant also discusses Tha Carter III Sessions, Wayne‘s mixtape run, how he plans to add the rest of Wayne‘s tapes to streaming platforms, how it has been managing Wayne‘s career (including being a DJ for him), Tha Carter album series, noticing the first commercial shift was the feature on Destiny Child’s “Soldier” single, Wayne becoming a “God” in New Orleans after the Sqad Up tapes, releasing The Leak EP to give Wayne more time to record a whole ‘nother C3 album, and much more.

Another conflicting issue with this interview is the “I Feel Like Dying” convo. Tez calls it his one of his favorite Weezy songs, but reveals they could never drop it officially or perform it as concerts, because they could never get the sample cleared and says they even received an injunction over it. However, the publishers of the song that was sampled (“Once” by Karma) have said on Twitter that this information is incorrect and they would love to clear the track and see it released. So… who is lying?

Lil Wayne Reveals When He Will Release Funeral Album & Announces New Partnership With Video Game Company Ubisoft

Similar to every year before “Lil Weezyana Fest“, Lil Wayne phoned into Wild Wayne from New Orleans radio station Q93 a few days ago to promote his upcoming 5th annual music festival that will be taking place on September 7th.

During their conversation, Wayne chatted about the growth of his “Lil Weezyana Fest” as it has changed to a bigger location for this year and it will include a jazz tribute, carnival food, rides and 2 stages at the upcoming concert, as well as how he wants his festival to be up there with the rest of the big festivals, such as Lollapalooza.

Tunechi then went on to list who is on his Young Money record label (doesn’t name Drake) and reveal he will release his Funeral album at the end of this year. He even mentioned that Funeral is done and it is now up to Mack Maine to pick a bunch of songs for the project and title them.

Also in the 17-minute conversation, Weezy discussed what he does to create new experiences, his Young Money Sports agency, Los Angeles Lakers, Green Bay Packers, and announced he has just partnered with video game company Ubisoft were he will be releasing funny commercials and ads for the Ghost Recon Breakpoint marketing campaign!
