G-Eazy Talks Upcoming Lil Wayne Collaboration & Bringing Wayne To Coachella For His First Time

G-Eazy recently sat down with TIDAL’s Elliott Wilson for a virtual interview that you can watch in full below.

Towards the end of their conversation, Young Gerald talks about his upcoming collaboration with Lil Wayne that he calls “a real hip-hop record” and hopes to be released by early summer on his These Things Happen Too album.

The Oakland rapper also speaks on how the song, which is more than probably the “When You’re Gone” record that leaked at the end of 2019, is significant to him and recalls being the person to bring Wayne to Coachella for his very first time!

Lil Wayne Sells His Masters For More Than $100 Million

Lil Wayne Sold His Masters For More Than 100 Million

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne‘s former manager Ronald Sweeney has filed a lawsuit against the New Orleans rapper for over $20 million.

Ronald says Wayne hired him back in 2005 to help renegotiate his deal with Cash Money Records, which we know was also another lawsuit that finally got settled in 2018. However, the attorney claims he only got a few payments for his work and is now suing Weezy for the full cut.

In the suit that was filed by lawyer Ed McPherson, Ronald Sweeney also mentions he was asked by Lil Wayne to fire Cortez Bryant in 2018 over a conflict of interest in a legal dispute about who Drake was signed to. After doing so, Sweeney claims Tez and Mack Maine then conspired to cause a disagreement and anger between himself and Tunechi in which it ended with Tune firing the attorney.

The craziest part of this lawsuit is that Wayne sold his masters to Universal Music Group in June of this year for more than $100 million. Ronald Sweeney is using this to say Mr. Carter does have the money to pay him what he is owed.

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?

Tez also reveals why he doesn’t think Wayne will ever do a Verzuz battle (says Wayne is an introvert), how album leaks happen, birthday plans, and how he missed out on managing Rae Sremmurd even though they were handed to him on a silver platter, due to the big lawsuit against Cash Money Records!
