Lil Wayne Visits Patients at Children’s Hospital of New Orleans

Lil Wayne spent the holidays doing good. The rapper brought cheer to patients at the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans earlier this week.

“Wayne visited Children’s Hospital of New Orleans the day after Christmas while he was at home for the holidays,” Weezy’s rep told XXL. “The purpose of the visit wasn’t for any special reason or for publicity. He just had it on his heart to visit these kids in hopes to brighten up their holiday a little more.”

During his visit, Tunechi met a young man named Kiron who was paralyzed after he was shot in the spine.

Earlier this month, Wayne was involved in controversy when Martin Shkreli claimed he purchased his long-awaited Carter V LP for an undisclosed amount.

Tunechi’s camp confirmed that the song Shkreli played on Periscope is from the project, but claim that Wayne has yet to submit his album to Cash Money Records. They’ve since reportedly launched an investigation into how the album or part of the album landed in Shkreli’s hands. The album remains at the heart of Weezy’s feud with his longtime label.

More recently, Wayne also mourned the death of Adam Ziegler, his longtime skateboarding coach. “RIP Adam Z,” wrote Weezy on social media.

RIP Adam Z

Nick Cannon Raps About Hospitalization, Mariah Carey on ‘Ncredible Freestyle’

Nick Cannon bares all in his new “Ncredible Freestyle,” a track about his recent hospitalization due to a Lupus flare up.

Over a sample of Chance the Rapper’s Francis and the Lights and Jeremih-assisted “Summer Friends,” Nick compares this song to Kanye West’s “Through the Wire” and 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’.

“Fresh up out the hospital, I feel so incredible,” raps Cannon. “Real close to death and the feeling so ill, yo.” Later, he complains: “Obama Care so reckless yo / Got us by the testicles / But President Obama was on point like a decimal.”

Outside of rapping about his recent hospitalization, where he underwent five blood transfusions, Cannon also addresses his ex-wife Mariah Carey’s E! docu-series “Mariah’s World.”

“Turn up and snatched my kids from my wife house,” he rhymes. “Outside screaming ’bout ‘never needed your money!’ / Seen the TV show, now that shit ain’t that funny.”

Last month, Nick released his mixtape, The Gospel of Ike Turn Up, My Side of the Story.

Stream Curren$y’s ‘Andretti 12/30’ Mixtape

Delivering his 12th mixtape of the year, Curren$y unleashes his latest effort, Andretti 12/30.

The 12-track project lands just before the new year, marking a prolific and productive year for Spitta, who’s dropped a project every month leading up to this finale.

So, what does his last installment sound like? “It’s like lounge trap music,” he says on the intro. “Lounge room trap music that could be toured at the casino with Wayne Newton.”

Like much of the music Spitta dropped this year, 12/30 features plenty of weed talk. “Hotbox the box Chevy, shit look like an explosion,” Andretti raps on the 2 Chainz-assisted “Pound.” “Two of the coldest ni**as smokin’, rollin’ / Millionaires and we homies / That’s dangerous, you know it.”

With production by 808 Mafia, A$AP Ty, Drumma Boy, Cool & Dre, and Harry Fraud, the tape also boasts guest appearances from Freddie Gibbs, Smoke DZA, and the aforementioned Tity Boi, among others.

Ring in the new year with Spitta’s Andretti 12/30.
