The RIAA Update Certifications For 7 Albums & 23 Singles By Lil Wayne

The RIAA Update Certifications For 7 Albums & 23 Singles By Lil Wayne

It’s about time! Lil Wayne‘s team have finally updated his certifications with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

I have listed the new Tunechi plaques for his albums and singles after the jump below. With “Lollipop” now being at 8x Platinum, I think it has a huge chance to be Tune‘s very first Diamond record.

PS: There has also been an image going around on social media with these new Weezy RIAA certifications, but there are 3 mistakes on it. I don’t know about you, but I hate how people rush to create things for likes and retweets without focusing on getting the correct information first. Then people will retweet without getting the facts themselves and spread more fake news around!

Shanell Talks All About Lil Wayne Rebirth Album & How It Influenced The New Generation Rappers

The latest episode of Ben Barzilai‘s “The Skip Button” podcast, which is all about the music we love to hate, features Lil Wayne‘s Rebirth album.

During the episode, Ben chopped it up with Eddie Montilla (who worked on the songs “Da Da Da“, “Paradice“, “On Fire” and “I’ll Die For You“) about what it was like to work on Rebirth, if he was disappointed with the reviews and sales, and more.

Around the 28:00 mark of the podcast, which you can listen to below, new mother Shanell called in to share what it was like behind the scenes making Rebirth as she worked heavily on the project and share a story of what happened at the end of Weezy and Birdman‘s “Leather So Soft” music video.

SnL also spoke on the Bad Ass Grasshoppers group, hearing the Rebirth influence in these new rappers like Young Thug and Lil Uzi Vert etc, Tunechi not knowing who metal band Korn were before they appeared in his “Prom Queen” video, all of Tune‘s court cases and going to jail was a big part in him putting the guitar down and stepping away from it, and much more!
