Lil Wayne has announced the winner of his “Social Wave For Change” contest with TIDAL, which was a contest for undergraduate college students to take part in by uploading a photo or video on social media of themselves completing a community service act.

The winner was the University Of Louisiana At Lafayette, so that means Weezy will be coming to the university to perform live for all the students on campus that helped donate nearly 7,000 bottles for those affected in Flint, Michigan.

Tunechi will put on his show at the University Of Louisiana At Lafayette next month in April, which will also be streamed live on TIDAL. You can read why Tune decided to do this contest and also see which schools made the final round from all submissions below!

Denzel Washington Mentions Lil Wayne & His “Lollipop” Song In His Commencement Speech At Dillard University [Video]

Denzel Washington Mentions Lil Wayne & Lollipop In His Commencement Speech At Dillard University In New Orleans

Actor and filmmaker Denzel Washington delivered a commencement speech to students graduating at Dillard University in New Orleans, Louisiana on May 9th.

What’s funny about that is during the beginning of his speech, Denzel was asking someone if they can spit like Nas or Jay Z, but then realized he was in Louisiana, so he changed his choices to Cash Money and Lil Wayne.

“Can you spit? A little bit? Nas or Jigga? No, no, we in Louisiana… Cash Money All Stars? Lil Weezy? Not “Lollipop” though, not “Lollipop”!”

You can check out this cool clip out after the jump below. It looks like Denzel Washington isn’t a big fan of Weezy‘s “Lollipop” song haha!

Lil B Discusses Chilling & Working With Lil Wayne

Lil B Discusses Chilling & Working With Lil Wayne

Over the weekend, Lil B took part in a lecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology university in Cambridge. When it was Q&A time, one of the students in attendance asked B who he had a close connection with in the music industry.

Lil B answered Lil Wayne, Mack Maine, and Diddy before telling a story of how at one point in his career he was hanging around and chilling with Wayne years after he had put Weezy on the cover of one of his projects back in 6th grade.

If I were to guess, I would say this time was around when Tunechi was recording his Sorry 4 The Wait mixtape. If you don’t recall, Lil B was featured on “Grove St. Party” off that tape. You can read exactly what B said about Tune below!
