*Onika, Onika let down your hair! Nicki Minaj reveals her natural hair.
Known for her bold, wacky, pink, and rainbow wigs the self-titled Barbie is flaunting her real hair, in a sleek high ponytail on her Instagram page.
*Paris Hilton, the newest artist on Lil Wayne’s Young Money label, just released a sample of her new song with Weezy in which the two sing about being intoxicated.
Titled “Good Times,” the lyrics include this verse from Wayne:
“I’m f**ked up … I can’t tell you what’s what.
All she know is suck, f**k.
I walked up to a big butt, and asked her ass but what …
Tunechi never slacks without her button up.”
Meanwhile, Paris “sings” the hook:
“I might be a bit tipsy …
but that’s OK ’cause you’re with me.
Are you having a good time?
cause I’m having a good time.”
The complete song drops next week. Listen to the sample below.
*On the heels of losing his endorsement deal with PepsiCo, Lil Wayne has just launched his Spectre by Supra footwear line as part of his endorsement deal with the skating brand.
At the launch party, held at an indoor ramp in Miami over the weekend, the rapper was joined by his manager Cortez Bryant, Young Money president Mack Maine, fellow rapper Bun B, and pro skateboarder Stevie Williams.
“I’ve been rocking this shoe before I even knew what it was, so for me to start skating now and shoe lines start coming at me, it would’ve been only right to mess with the people I been rocking with,” Weezy told MTV.
*Lil Wayne’s apology letter to the family of Emmett Till after crudely referencing the slain civil rights icon in a song was not enough for him to keep his endorsement deal with Mountain Dew.
The Young Money CEO wrote an apology letter to the family of Emmett Till and the Till family responded saying Lil Wayne’s letter was not an apology at all. So, the family continued to press PepsiCo to drop the rapper, with a petition.
Now the soda brand has dropped Lil Wayne.
“We do not plan any additional work with Lil Wayne moving forward,” said a statement from PepsiCo. “His offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand.”
Emmett Till was a 14-year-old visiting his family in Mississippi in 1955 when he was viciously beaten and murdered after being accused for whistling at a white woman.
*On Monday, Lil Wayne made his first public appearance since being hospitalized after suffering a seizure last month.
The hip hop star visited Miami’s Mansion nightclub to celebrate rapper Rocko, reports People.com. Joined by Cash Money founder Birdman, Lil Wayne, an onlooker tells the website, “looked healthy and fresh-faced.”
This time, there was no sizzurp to be found. “He sipped on water while holding court at a VIP table on Mansion’s stage that overlooked the crowd,” the source added.
The rapper appeared to be enjoying the music and was later joined by Busta Rhymes, who was recently signed to Young Money.
*Lil Wayne’s daughter has official joined the family business as the newest member of her father’s Young Money family.
Reginae Carter, 14, has officially signed with the label, president Mack Maine confirmed to Rap-Up TV last week.
“Just expect greatness,” he said of Carter, who previously performed with OMG Girlz. “She’s Toya’s [Wright] daughter and Wayne’s daughter, so that’s a great combination. She’s a star, just put it like that. A super, megastar.”
Maine also named PJ Morton, Torion Sellers and We The Future among his most recent signees.
Young Money, Lil Wayne’s Cash Money imprint and home to Drake and Nicki Minaj, is part of Universal Music Group.
