Yo Gotti Pays Homage To Lil Wayne & Jay Z On His CM10 Album Artworks

This Friday (February 4th), Yo Gotti will be releasing what he says will be his final album as a music artist, CM10: Free Game (Side A and Side B).

With the official covers now released for the CM10 project, Gotti has paid homage to both Lil Wayne and his Tha Carter II artwork, as well as Jay-Z and his Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life artwork.

Gotti is signed to Jay‘s Roc Nation management agency and in the past, he has called Wayne the “biggest realest rapper” he knows plus the “best rapper alive“, so it is only right that the Memphis rapper decided to pay tribute to them for the tenth chapter of his Cocaine Muzik series!

LT Hutton Hints At Lil Wayne Being On The All Eyez On Me Soundtrack Paying Homage To 2Pac

Record producer L.T. Hutton recently chopped it up with HipHopDX for an interview (see below) about the upcoming All Eyez On Me biopic.

During the conversation, Hutton hinted that Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar would both be making an appearance on the film’s soundtrack, which he mentioned would be full of songs paying homage and tribute to Pac:

“Lil Wayne never got to rap with Pac, so in the Pac spirit what kind of song would you create? Same thing with Kendrick, you love 2Pac and you say 2Pac would always be in your music, what does that song sound like?”

The movie is set to be released in theaters on June 16th, so we will find out the answer nearer to that date! Maybe we will be hearing the full track of Weezy‘s “That’s What Niggas Do“?

Marvel Has Paired SpiderMan With Lil Wayne For Their Hip Hop Variant Artwork Campaign

Marvel are reworking various hip-hop album artworks with some of their superheroes for their huge refresh of their classic comic book titles.

The Editor In Chief of Marvel Comics, Axel Alonso, said that the Marvel and hip-hop relationship makes sense because they are both “really big powerful threads of pop culture”, as well as how over the years he has heard plenty of rappers reference superheroes in their music.

One of the hip-hop album covers that Marvel have paid homage to is Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV artwork. You can check out the variant cover that was created by Gyimah Gariba above, courtesy of The FADER!
