Lil Wayne and Drake‘s “B.B. King Freestyle“, which can be found on Side A of No Ceilings 3, has been given the stamp of approval from the late blues icon’s estate.
B.B. King‘s estate heard about the song more or less straight away after it was released on November 27th and invited Weezy, Drizzy and Khaled to work on a hip-hop project that will be released by Universal Music Group for a B.B. King biopic.
As well as giving the three of them “a big thumbs up” for the collaboration, you can read exactly what the chairman of the bluesman’s estate, Vassal Benford, revealed to Variety in an interview below!
Gillie Da King and Wallo267 recently sat down with N.O.R.E. aka Noreaga and DJ EFN for an interview on their “Drink Champs” podcast.
Around the 20:00 mark of their conversation, Gillie recalled Birdman once giving him a check that bounced and hearing Lil Wayne‘s diss song towards him, “Problem Solver“, for the first time, as well as why he thinks the issues first started between the two of them and why he responded to it.
Before saluting Tunechi and Baby, the Philadelphia native also wouldn’t reveal if he actually wrote raps for Tune, however, he did say he wrote verses for Cash Money Records. I just want to point out that Gillie has confirmed in past interviews he never wrote for Wayne and it’s public knowledge that he did write for the #1 Stunna… so there you go!
Young Money President, Mack Maine, recently spoke to MTV’s Rob Markman over the phone about Lil Wayne‘s new single “My Homies Still” featuring Big Sean and Wayne‘s beef with Pusha T. He confirms that “My Homies Still” is the first single from Weezy‘s upcoming I Am Not A Human Being II album and that the song was made way before the situation with Big Sean‘s G.O.O.D Music label-mate, Pusha T.
Mack also spoke on what made Tunechi finally respond back to Pusha with a track called “Goulish“. The reason was because Tune was getting fed up of Pusha sending little shots in his recent songs at his artist and friend, Drake. He then went on to compare Pusha T to a fly: “In a nutshell, if a gnat or a fly keep flyin’ around you, eventually you gonna swing and swat it, and just get it out the way. Sometimes you swat it and the gnat dies; sometimes it just go away. You can keep flyin’, just fly somewhere else though. We chillin'”. Macknupid made sure it was known that it is not crew beef between YMCMB vs. G.O.O.D Music too!
