Robin Thicke Recalls Witnessing A Bank Robbery That Inspired “Shooter” With Lil Wayne [Video]

Robin Thicke Recalls Witnessing A Bank Robbery That Inspired Shooter With Lil Wayne

While on the “The Kelly Clarkson Show” recently, Robin Thicke recalled a bank robbery he witnessed that ended up inspiring his “Shooter” collaboration with Lil Wayne.

Robin tells Kelly Clarkson that when he was 18-years-old, he was inside a bank when some guys with masks and guns entered and robbed the place. He wrote a song about this experience titled “Oh Shooter” for his debut studio album, A Beautiful World.

Years later, Wayne put his own spin on the “Shooter” track and added it to his Tha Carter II album, which Thicke says he ended up getting a Grammy Award for it. However, I think he is getting mistaken with Tha Carter III album. Check it out below!

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!
