Happy Friday! Here are the best things I found on the internet this week.
A while back, a small monkey made headlines when he cavorted around an Ikea in Canada wearing a tiny shearling coat. If you’re like me, you often re-watch the magnificent video and ponder what may have happened to this amazing creature. Ponder no more – Vice, America’s best news source (that’s not sarcasm), brings us the story.
Lil Wayne and Birdman’s recent falling out has been all over the hip-hop news lately: for unknown reasons, Birdman wouldn’t let Lil Wayne release “Tha Carter V,” which made Lil Wayne decide he wanted out of Cash Money and created much conflict between this former inseparable duo.
This tragic separation of Weezy and his father figure has been tough to deal with for many fans, but I am pleased to announce that we can put our sadness on hold: “Sorry 4 the Wait 2” is here. The mixtape is a sequel to “Sorry 4 the Wait,” which was an apology for the delay in releasing “Tha Carter IV.” I’m sensing a pattern here…
Nonetheless, the mixtape features Wayne rapping over some of Turn Down For Clare’s favorite beats, including “Coco,” “No Type,” “Jumpin’ Like Jordan,” and “Tuesday.” While I haven’t given it a complete and critical listen, I’m enjoying it so far and am confident it will be filled with lyrical genius from start to finish.
