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!

Busta Rhymes Arab Money Remix Feat Lil Wayne, Ron Browz, Diddy, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain & Akon

I have chosen a remix of a Busta Rhymes song called “Arab Money” featuring Lil Wayne, Ron Browz, Diddy, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, and Akon for this week’s “Feature Friday” edition.

The original version of this Ron Browz-produced single appears on Busta‘s eighth studio album, Back On My B.S., which was released back in 2009.

“Calendar say get money everyday, my smile look like iced-out Perrier; Bury me a G and tell my kids that I was, now jump into your grave, do you dig what I dug?”

You can watch the music video for the “Arab Money” remix below that was directed by Rik Cordero.

I previously posted up Lil Wayne‘s full conversation with Eminem at the weekend, and now we can check out the rest of episode 3 of the “Young Money Radio” show on Apple Music that took place on May 8th.

Throughout this radio show, Wayne revealed he is working on a new song with hip-hop group Griselda (not the 2 Chainz one), he is a fan of Killer Mike, he has a collaboration on the way with Jack Harlow called “2K“, and he wishes he could of done a song with the late Pop Smoke.

Tunechi spoke with special guest Kevin Durant about COVID-19, how often he records music, and when the two of them are going to do a track together, as well as also chatted with Nav about not being allowed in Toronto with his criminal past, The Weeknd and XO, musical influences, wanting some new beats, and mentioned he just got done being on tour with Limp Bizkit… but it was actually Blink-182 he went on tour with lol!

After speaking with Jack Dorsey, who is the CEO of Twitter, Weezy chopped it up with Swizz Beatz about battles on social media, wanting to record a 10-song project over Swizz‘s beats only, buying the Iron Man crib, and shared a story of something that happened while on set of their “Pistol On My Side” video shoot at the TRUKSTOP!
