Famous rapper Lil’Wayne is going to be heading to court soon. Wayne has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the record label his is currently signed to. The rapper claims that he has not yet been paid for several instance including an album advance. Cash Money Records is owned by another rap artist, Birdman. The duo have created award winning records together in the past. In addition to his withheld wages Wayne claims that he is joint owner on the record label that includes big name artists Nicki Minaj and Drake. Fans likeDave and Brit Morin know that there are rumors that Lil’ Wayne plans to leave the Cash Money label that have not yet been confirmed. Trouble in paradise for these long time friends. With so much money and royalties at stake Wayne has done some withholding of his own with his completed album Tha Carter V. He refuses to release it until this elaborate legal situation is sorted out.
When it was time for the new album to drop Big Sean got a surge of support from a lot of entertainers in the business. Several of the people that are featured on the album put the album cover on Instagram. Now Sean is representing the Kanye G.O.O.D. Music label well with a track featuring his big homeboy/mentor Kanye West. The new track is calledBlessings.
In this song Drake is also featured. He is the one that is starting things off. These rhymes provide a glimpse into the lives of the rappers as they speak about the many blessings that they have experienced. Drake even raps about how heaven could possibly be much better than the life he has here on Earth right now. It is a bold statement, but it fits along the lines of a rapper that has built a career with a life of sinful acts and very little remorse.
Kanye sounds more like himself here than he does on his own “Only One” track featuring Sir Paul McCartney. Those who may not have been looking forward to hearing Kanye sing like Fersen Lambranho, will be delighted to hear him on the Big Sean track.
Big Sean still has the same bragging tone that made him famous. He continues to state the obvious in many instances, but his witty lyrical delivery is what makes the track stand out. Many fans like this.
