Busta Rhymes invites Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Q-Tip along for 'Thank You' video: Watch it here

BUSTA-RHYMES-THANK-YOU.jpg

What do we do with Busta Rhymes in 2013? It’s been more than a minute since his peak years of mainstream relevance — his first big break came on A Tribe Called Quest’s immortal 1992 single “Scenario” — but 2012′s Year of the Dragon was surprisingly strong, and there are more hits than misses on his Catastrophic mixtape from last year.

The internet has also been fairly excited about his new tag-team tape with Q-Tip, thanks to the single “Thank You,” which lets Busta do his lightning-tongue thing over some groovy old school new soul funk. It features the best Q-Tip verse in years, plus drop-ins from Kanye West and Lil Wayne — both of whom also appear in the spartan but satisfying video that just dropped this morning.

Give the clip a spin below and marvel at Kanye’s unwavering stare during one of Q-Tip’s verses at the 2:37 mark. It’s freaky: READ FULL STORY

Lil Wayne issues statement over American flag controversy

There are plenty of reasons to get mad at Lil Wayne: His attitude toward women is questionable at best, his enthusiasm for recreational substances seems irresponsible, and he put out a rock album even though he’s a terrible guitar player. But the latest controversy comes across like a tempest in a drank-filled coffee mug.

While filming a video for the track “God Bless Amerika” in New Orleans, Weezy was caught stepping on an American flag that had been dropped behind him. The footage, which you can see below, has earned Wayne all kinds of Internet flack.

The song, from Wayne’s latest album I Am Not a Human Being II, features some incendiary rhetoric, including the lines “Damn, military minded, lost and can’t find it/ The stars on the flag are never shining.” Of course, it also features Wayne rapping the lyrics, “B—-, sit on my rocket,” so it’s not exactly a classic protest anthem.

Still, that hasn’t stopped people from getting up in arms about Wayne’s supposed desecration of Old Glory. Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY

2 Chainz arrested for drug possession at Los Angeles airport

Poor 2 Chainz. First he gets robbed in San Francisco (except maybe possibly not, depending on how reliable you believe his tweets are), and now he’s in trouble with the law in Los Angeles.

The rapper born Tauheed Epps and formerly known as Tity Boi was arrested for possession of marijuana and Promethazine (a key ingredient in sizzurp, or lean). The drugs were found in his checked luggage and Los Angeles International Airport, and Chainz was escorted off the plane to get booked.

This is Chainz’ second drug-related arrest this year. Back in February, Maryland State Police detained him for marijuana possession after pulling over his van. (He was ultimately found not guilty.) He should probably commit those TSA guidelines to memory, because he’s going to be spending a lot of time on the road this summer as part of the America’s Most Wanted tour, which features Lil Wayne, T.I., French Montana, Hit-Boy, and G-Eazy.

Lil Wayne releases thank you video for fans, says 'I'm more than good'

Fans who’ve been obsessively Googling to find out the latest status of Lil Wayne’s health can rest their weary keyboards: the Tunechi has offered visual confirmation that he is alive and well.

The rapper, of course, was hospitalized after suffering a series massive seizures in Los Angeles last week. He was released Monday night, but many were still concerned for Weezy’s health. So to put his fans’ minds at ease and thank them for their well wishes, Wayne recorded a video with T.I. to let everyone know all was well.

“I just want to say thank you to all y’all for all your prayers,” Wayne says in the TMZ-obtained video, which was recorded slightly before midnight on Wednesday. “I swear to God I felt that love while I was laid up on that motherf—ing hospital bed. I just want all y’all to know that I’m good — I’m more than good.”

The rapper also included a half-hearted plug for his upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II, which he says “you can go get that s— if you want, or if not, whatever.”

“Also, I’m still going on tour,” he continued. At this point, he beckoned a much livelier T.I. to enter from the wings, and the two excitedly discussed their upcoming plans. Wayne then brought the clip to a close by telling viewers, “Kiss my fist.”

Pucker up and watch the video below:

Now that we’ve seen the DONDA-designed album art for Lil Wayne’s upcoming I Am Not a Human II, it’s time to check out the tracklist.

The official Young Money site has posted the album’s 15-song list, and, unsurprisingly, there are lots of guests on the record (due out March 26).

Among the non-Weezy names are old pals like Drake, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, and, of course, Big Sean on “My Homies Still.” But there are also some lesser-known up-and-comers, including YMCMB’s Gudda Gudda, Detail, and Boo (formerly of the rap duo Boo & Gotti).

And those aren’t the only guests, either. Check out the full I Am Not a Human II tracklist below:

Epic Records taking down controversial Lil Wayne song referencing Emmett Till

Looks like Tunechi was tone deaf on this one.

Lil Wayne’s controversial remix of Future’s “Karate Chop” is being pulled by Epic Records, which acknowledged the offensive lyrics concerning murdered civil-rights figure Emmett Till.

“We regret the unauthorized remix version of Future’s ‘Karate Chop,’ which was leaked online and contained hurtful lyrics,” Epic said in a statement, the Associated Press reports. “Out of respect for the legacy of Emmett Till and his family and the support of the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. … we are going through great efforts to take down the unauthorized version.”

Here are the lyrics that got Weezy in hot water: “Pop a lot of pain pills/Bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels/Beat that p—y up like Emmett Till.”

Till was murdered in 1955 at the age of 14 after being accused of flirting with a white woman. This supposed flirtation prompted the woman’s husband and half-brother to beat Till up, shoot him in the head, and leave his mutilated body for dead at the bottom of the Tallahatchie River.
