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 Catches Legal Break As Judge Postpones Trial

Lil Wayne Catches Legal Break As Judge Postpones Trial

Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has reportedly been granted additional time by a federal judge who has postponed his upcoming copyright lawsuit.

The decision was reportedly made in court yesterday (August 11) afternoon.

A federal judge has agreed to postpone a trial for a lawsuit that accuses rapper Lil Wayne of sampling another artist’s work without permission. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman didn’t immediately set a new date for the trial that was scheduled to start October 26. The copyright infringement suit claims Lil Wayne failed to secure permission to sample folk singer Karma-Ann Swanepoel’s song “Once” on his track “I Feel Like Dying.”

His record label reportedly requested a delay earlier this summer.

Universal Music Group also is named as a defendant in the suit because the company allegedly had a hand in posting Lil Wayne’s song on a MySpace.com page where millions of fans downloaded it for free. Universal had asked Feldman for more time to prepare for a trial.

Weezy filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the “I Feel Like Dying” producer who, he said, was responsible for clearing the original song’s sample.

A lawsuit by the rapper’s lawyers says Rebel Rock Productions Inc., of Coconut Creek, Fla., produced “I Feel Like Dying” and was responsible for obtaining any necessary licensing agreements. Rebel Rock hasn’t responded to Lil Wayne’s claims and doesn’t have a lawyer named in court records. A telephone number listed for the company has been disconnected.

He was originally sued over the track in May 2008.

A lawsuit filed last year against Lil Wayne accuses him of copyright infringement for failing to get permission to sample folk singer Karma-Ann Swanepoel’s song “Once” in his track “I Feel Like Dying.” The song isn’t a track on any of Lil Wayne’s records, but he allegedly sings it in concert and has allowed fans to download it for free on his Web site.


PS: This is a completely different lawsuit to what we posted earlier 😉
