Lil Wayne is Larger than Life, covers XXL

Wayne gives a powerful interview in the July/August 2011 issue of XXL. In his interview Wayne speaks on his retirement while he is still on top, and his expectations of Nicki M. and Drake. Lil Wayne is still busy preparing for the release of "The Carter IV", talks of wanting "Justin Timberlake to jump on a track and why not "Justin Bieber".

Peep excerpts from Weezy's interview

"I’m bowing out still on top, I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘Nooo!’ I ain’t leaving out this b*tch when y’all be like, ‘Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.’ Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, ‘F*ck!’ Yeah, n*gga, I’m gone.

What is good about me is that I’m an interesting muthaf–ka. I’m Dwayne Michael Carter period! Whether I’m a rapper or not, I’m interesting. And that’s what my album’s gonna be about: me and how interesting I am."

What he expects from Drake and Nicki M.

I expect to eat, and eat well. I expect [Drake] to be a lot more successful than he has ever been. I mean, this guy’s a superstar. He is the definition. That’s what I told y’all before he was: ‘That’s the definition of a superstar.’ And like Nicki, he’s only breaking ice. He has yet to be who he’s going to be. I’m banking on them. On him wanting to work with "Justin T, and why not Justin B.

“That’s my little homie now,” Wayne says of The Biebs. “He texts me every night asking me to do his damn song. That’s my nigga, but I can’t do it. Like I said, I don’t want to fuck his shit up. But like I said, I want to work with Justin Timberlake. That boy got a voice; that boy can sing. He needs to come back right there on Tha Carter IV.”

Just Who Is Odd Future??

All of the recent twitter beef between Chris Brown and Odd Future has left all of our readers wondering "Just who is ODD Future?" (See Tweets below). Here's what I know so far. Odd Future consist of leader 19 year old "Tyler The Creator", who claims there are at least 60 people in the group including "Frank Ocean". Any Whoo!!!! I think I'm finally starting to believe that rap wars/beef are ignited to give artist the attention they need in order to claim their fame. I say that because all of the attention this Twitter beef has brought to the media forced me to take a listen at Odd Future's single they recently performed on the Jimmy Fallon Show "Sandwiches" and I must say I was frightened....... SMILES

A friend of mine "Raze the Shadow" also a new rap artist mentioned that Tyler has a type of Lady Ga Ga affect on rap music that will certainly keep him a kite. I have to say that dude "Tyler the Creator" is very talented, a lyricist like non other. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of him.

Listen to Tyler the Creator's "Yonkers" below....I'm feeling this one!!

UPDATE: Everyone can let their kids, animals, and plants outside again, the beef has ended between Chris Brown and Odd Future!! HA.....

S/O To "The Game" for diffusing the pointless beef.

Missy Elliot Revelas Health Battle!!

It’s been six years since we heard from Missy Elliott. Where has she been? Well, the rap artist has been diagnosed with the incurable disease - GRAVES. You may ask...what is that? It's an incurable autoimmune disorder caused by an overactive thyroid. The disease makes it very difficult for Missy to complete her daily task. She told People Magazine:

“You live with it for the rest of your life," she said to People. “I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad – I couldn’t even use a pen. I couldn’t keep the brake down [while driving] and I almost crashed.”

Wikipedia describes the disease as "an autoimmune disease where the thyroid is overactive, producing an excessive amount of thyroid hormones (a serious metabolic imbalance known as hyperthyroidism and thyrotoxicosis). This is caused by autoantibody (TSHR-Ab) that activate the TSH-receptor (TSHR), thereby stimulating thyroid hormone synthesis and secretion, and thyroid growth (causing a diffusely enlarged goiter). The resulting state of hyperthyroidism can cause a dramatic constellation of neuropsychological and physical signs and symptoms."

Next week, Missy Elliot will open up about her experience with Graves as well as many other subjects including her the sexual abuse she endured as a child in a new episode of VH1's Behind the Music. In addition, she speaks in the latest issue of People. Missy explains the details surronding how she was diagnosed with the disease. While driving her vehicle in 08 she says: "My leg was jumping, I couldn't keep the brake down and I almost crashed." Elliott went on to describe how her nervous system became so spastic, she couldn't even hold a pen to write music -- a devastating moment for an successful artist! How does she feel today? Missy says

"My thyroid is functioning, so I haven't had to take medication in about nine months. [But] you live with it for the rest of your life."

You can hear more about this disease on VH1 Wednesday, June 29th at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Finally, when asked why share her story; Missy replied, "I felt that I would be able to help other people," she told PEOPLE magazine. Well we missed you dearly Missy and we are VERY happy you are feeling MUCH BETTER!!!

So Everybody is aware that Jay-Z is Beyonce's new manager-RIGHT?! If you dont...YOU should!!  she has publicly said he was BUT I can see JIGGA a mile away!!  Matthew Knowles did such a good job, many people people were skpetical of Jigga. Despite the fact that he has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and received thirteen Grammy Awards.  Bottomline- JAY-Z is BRILLIANT! His new marketing campaign for Beyonce's CD is!  Think about it, in preparation for next weeks BIG album release; Beyonce has aired a music video on American Idol gaining MILLIONS of viewers, leaked an album AND released 2 official singles(The Best I Never Had and Run The World-Girls) that are getting MAAAD AIRPLAY BTW!!! AMAZING marketing strategy!! Nobody has ever released a video on American Idol.  Personally, I cant wait until next week.  With all the HYPE... I feel like WHERE IS THE CD? I know I'm not alone and for that....JIGGA HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!

SN: I remember back in the day Destiny's Child open for Goody Mob at Grambling State University! It had to be 1997 or 1998 even; They got BOOOED! Can you believe it? The crowd open their umbrellas,turned their backs and BOOOED them like crazy. All because they wanted to see GOODY MOB!! NOT NOW Beyonce has POWER and Ce-lo have to jump hurdles and spit fire to get his award winning song "Forget You" on the radio. Hmmmph Funny how things change!!

Did you know Jay-Z serves as co-brand director for Budweiser Select and collaborates with the company on strategic marketing programs and creative ad development. YES INDEED, he provides direction on brand programs and ads that appear on TV, radio, print, and high-profile events. No wonder this dude is worth 450 Million!!  This DUDE does it all!! The 822 just want to say CONGRATS- You've Done It AGAIN JIGGA!!

MTV Did A Track-By-Track Listen Party. Read their reviews below.

Beyonce-new album

Beyoncé - '4' Track By Track Review 1+1 -FULL SONG

This is the perfect opener to Beyoncé 's fourth studio album, displaying Queen B at her best. Produced by Knowles and The-Dream, the guitar heavy ballad exposes a more vulnerable side to Bey as she pleads "make love to me". A classic stripped-back slow jam from the diva.

I Care

With it's throbbing beats, this Beyoncé and Jeff Bhasker produced tune proves why Bey is still the best in the business. Her vocals are flawless as she belts out notes we didn't even realise were possible.

I Miss You

Knowles has teamed up with Frank Ocean to pen this heartfelt ballad - produced by the Single Ladies star herself along with Shea Taylor. Her vocals are once again on point, as she delivers the track with raw emotion.

Best I Never Had-FULL SONG
We love this tune over at MTV and were more than happy when Queen B picked this track as her next single. Guaranteed to be a hit, this song reveals a more ferocious side to Beyoncé, with it's faster pace and aggressive piano backing. It's powerful, emotional and most of all, we can't get it out of our heads!

Party feat. Andre 3000

Produced by Kanye West, Knowles and Consequence, Beyoncé picks up the pace on this dance-floor filler, which is reminiscent of the music she was making with Destiny's Child back in the nineties...but of course, with that Sasha Fierce edge. Featuring the recognisable rapping of OutKast star, Andre 3000, this track is bound to be a monster hit. Oh, and Kanye even lends his vocals for a quick verse. A stand out tune on the album.

Rather Die Young

Beyoncé gets all mysterious on us with this dark, yet enchanting ballad. Produced by Queen B and Luke Steele, Knowles sings about dying young and leaving a legacy, even name dropping tragic actor James Dean at the start. Its eerie yet mesmerising, as Bey once again shows off her stunning vocals.

Start Over

This stonking and dramatic track has a rather futuristic feel, as it opens with electric and enticing beats. Produced once again by Beyoncé and Taylor, Knowles shows off that big voice of hers, leaving us wanting more from the lady herself. We are hoping this is a single.

Love On Top

As soon as we heard this track, it screamed 'classic disco', making us want to chuck on our dancing shoes &nsp; hit the floor. Produced once again by Queen B and Taylor, it's catchy, more uptempo and differs from the rest of the album, showing Beyoncé's versatility. Very Jackson 5. We like!


This track samples the Boyz II Men song, Uhh Ahh, and sees Beyoncé teaming up with the likes of The-Dream, Taylor and Wayna Morris to write the song. It's faced-past, original and bound to be a massive tune in clubs across the globe. A refreshing break from the slower part of the LP.

End Of Time

Beyoncé yet again hooks-up with The-Dream for this track, as well as UK based DJ Switch, who is best known for his work with M.I.A and Santigold. The beat builds throughout the song, giving it a memorable sound and it's insanely catchy. Guaranteed to fill a dance floor near you soon.

I Was Here

Penned by Diane Warren and produced by One Republic's Ryan Tedder, Bey gets all reflective on us with this track, as it's about leaving a legacy. With it's simple backing music, the song really shows off Knowles' flawless and beautiful voice, singing lyrics like "I was here and will never be forgotten". A standout song on the album, we wont be forgetting Queen B in a hurry.

Run The World (Girls) FULL SONG

The first single to be taken from 4, Beyoncé explores a mixture of musical genres on this experimental track. Using a sample from Major Lazer's Pon de Floor, with the likes of The-Dream, Switch and Diplo playing a part in it's production. It's explosive beats and chanting chorus are bound to go down well at Glasto, although after listening to the whole album, we feel Queen B has so much more to offer.
