Lil Wayne is out of the hospital, according to his Young Money associate Mack Maine.

Mack Maine told his Twitter followers on Monday night that the multiplatinum rapper had left Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, where he had been hospitalized since last week.

Mack Maine tweeted his thanks to the hospital and said Lil Wayne had officially been released and was headed home. He added: “God is great.”

Lil Wayne — who has a history of seizures — was hospitalized last week. A person close to his camp who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation told the Associated Press that a seizure was the cause of his hospitalization.

Lil Wayne suffered a seizure but is recovering, according to his spokesman.

The Southern rapper also reassured fans that he was on the mend. “I’m good everybody,” he wrote. “Thx for the prayers and love.”

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Lil Wayne was sent to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a seizure on the set of a Nicki Minaj video. According to multiple reports, he was released shortly after being treated, though the state of his health remained unclear. On Friday morning, TMZ then reported that Weezy was back in the hospital after another seizure, which prompted false rumors to spread via social media that his prognosis was fatal. READ FULL STORY

Lil Wayne's 'I Am Not a Human II' tracklist revealed: Drake, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz to guest

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.

Lil Wayne surpasses Elvis

Lil Wayne is not only making rap history, he’s making rock ‘n’ roll history: the rapper has surpassed Elvis Presley as the leading male with the most entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Lil Wayne now has 109 songs on that chart with Thursday’s debut of Game’s song “Celebration,” where he is a guest alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa. Of his 109 charted songs, only 42 are led by Lil Wayne; 67 are songs where he is the featured act.

Thursday is the rapper’s 30th birthday.

Presley totaled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958. Presley’s career kicked off before that and several of his songs — like “Heartbreak Hotel” — could not be included in his total number.

The Glee cast has the most Hot 100 entries with 204.

First things first: Lil Wayne is a great rapper (at least, he used to be). What Lil Wayne is not, however, is compliant in a court of law.

A little background: In 2009, Wayne sued Quincy Jones III, son of music producer Quincy Jones (Michael Jackson’s Thriller), over a documentary called The Carter, (via Digital Spy). Now he’s filed a second lawsuit against Jones, claiming the film illegally used tunes from Tha Carter IV. Which brings us to the current debacle: Wayne’s deposition.

Rick Ross and David Copperfield hang out on stage in Vegas -- VIDEO

Rick-Ross

You know that thing when rappers shout out the name of a seemingly completely unrelated public figure in the middle of a verse, making you ponder how it would be to walk in on Robin Williams lecturing Jay-Z  about seizing the day in an empty English classroom or eavesdrop on the Lil Wayne-Bill Gates phone call wherein they discuss the finer points of exceeding baller status?

The Meek Mill-assisted Rick Ross track “Black Magic,” one of several standouts on Maybach Music Group’s recent compilation effort Self Made Vol. 2, has a hook that rhymes: “Poof! There go the car/Poof! there go the crib/Poof! A hundred mil, David Copperfield/David Copperfield, David Copperfield.”

You know where this is headed.

Rick Ross was performing in Las Vegas last night, and revealed in the midst of his set that he had a special guest waiting in the wings: “This is a mother—-in’ icon.  In his field, he the greatest that ever did it.  So, I want you to drop the music at the same time.  Drop the music, let’s go.”

And then, this happened:

Lil Wayne defends pulling Nicki Minaj from Hot 97's Summer Jam

As the controversy surrounding Nicki Minaj’s flap with Hot 97 DJ Pete Rosenberg begins to die down, her friend and boss Lil Wayne has finally stepped out to offer his side of the story.

In case you’ve forgotten, Minaj was slated to play Hot 97′s Summer Jam earlier this month, but Wayne — the head of her Young Money label — pulled her out after Rosenberg said Minaj’s single “Starships” wasn’t “real hip-hop” on the radio.

Things heated up after that, but now after weeks of silence, Wayne spoke to MTV about his decision. “That’s a female,” the “Lollipop” rapper explained. “First and foremost, Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how.”

“As soon as she called me and told me she felt disrespected, I just declined everything,” Weezy continued. “I pulled her from the show because … no person that works with me will be disrespected in my presence as long as I’m on this planet.”
