Throwback Thursday: Lil Wayne Appears On BET’s “106 & Park” To Promote His “500 Degreez” Album

Lil Wayne Appears On BET 106 & Park To Promote 500 Degreez Album

Similar to the posts earlier this month and at the end of March, I have decided to do another #ThrowbackThursday article for today here on LilWayneHQ.com.

For this week’s throwback post, you can watch Lil Wayne pay a visit to BET’s “106 & Park” television show back in 2002 to promote his 500 Degreez album. He was joined later on by Birdman, Mannie Fresh and TQ.

In his interview, Wayne spoke on why the 500 Degreez project title is similar to Juvenile’s 400 Degreez album name, having the very first sample on Cash Money Records with “Don’t Look Any Further” on his “Way Of Life” single, and more! Have you seen it before?

Lloyd Recalls Lil Wayne Picking Him Up In His Stretch Hummer Limousine & How “You” Came Together [Video]

Lloyd Recalls Lil Wayne Picking Him Up In His Stretch Hummer Limousine & How You Came Together

Lloyd sat down with VIBE last month to appear on their “Then And Now” series and break down the stories behind his biggest hits, which you can watch below.

At the 3:15 mark, the New Orleans-born artist discusses Lil Wayne picking him up after one of his concerts at Mama’s Prime Time in Atlanta in his stretch Hummer limousine and singing his “I’m A G” song word for word to his face, as well as letting him know that this was his favorite song at the current time.

The R&B singer-songwriter also revealed how his “You” single featuring Weezy came about in 2007 after originally having Tango Redd on the song. This involved Hurricane Katrina and Lloyd spending his own money to promote the collaboration on radio stations. He even mentioned Tune sent him his verses for “You” back on the same day that he reached out to him for the feature!

Kobe Bryant, Michael Vick & Reginae Carter Tease Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album

Kobe Bryant, Michael Vick & Reginae Carter Tease Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album

After Floyd Mayweather and James Harden both teased Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V this month, Kobe Bryant and Michael Vick have now teased the upcoming album in exactly the same way.

Mayweather shared a “V” promo image to his Instagram page with a caption reading “#21” and a goat emoji on September 7th before Harden did the same on September 13th with the number “#13” instead.

Now Kobe has posted the same “V” image on his social media with a caption reading “#8” and a goat smiley while Mike also did the same, but his number read “#7” instead. Both of these were uploaded on September 21st.

If these dates and numbers were a bit more planned out, you would think they are counting down to the release date of C5 on Wayne‘s birthday this Thursday (September 27th), which would be perfect for him to drop at midnight on the Friday as this is the day when new albums are usually released.

The numbers are all related to each sports athlete (mainly their jersey numbers), so I guess we will have to wait and see what happens, but if Weezy‘s good friend Chris Paul shares the “V” promo image on his Instagram page soon with a caption saying “#3” then it will certainly get interesting! What do you think the numbers mean?

Lil Wayne Has A Smoking Session With Caviar Bishop From Caviar Gold

Before shooting the “I’m The One” music video with DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper and Migos in Malibu on February 27th, Lil Wayne chilled with Caviar Bishop.

Bishop is the founder of Caviar Gold, which is “considered and proven to be the best cannabis processor in the country”, so it looks like they had a quick smoking session before the video shoot.

You can check out a short clip of Tunechi promoting Caviar Gold and another photo of Tune with Bishop after the jump below!
