Lil Wayne Addresses The Roc Nation Signing Rumors + Kendrick Lamar’s First Week Sales Are ‘DAMN’ Good


Did Lil Wayne really ink a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation? Find out what he said about it, plus get into Kendrick Lamar’s first week album sales for DAMN inside…

Lil Wayne had everyone’s tongue wagging when he hinted at signing with Roc Nation back in January and again earlier this month. During a concert in Pennsylvania on April 10th, Weezy announced to the crowd:

“Is it cool if I just say it? It’s the Roc. You know I’m apart of that team now,” then he threw up the Roc’s diamond symbol.

So is the Young Money honcho a Roc Nation artist now?

He clears up the rumors during a sitdown with his friend/”Undisputed” host Skip Bayless that streamed live via Facebook. While an official deal hasn’t been worked out just yet, Weezy said Hov has become a good friend who’s trying to help him any way possible.

“Jay is just a good guy,” he told Skip.“It was nothing but a simple thing. Friend to friend, I just want to help you. Simply. That’s all it was. I just want to help you, man, in any way I can. Right now, he’s just gonna help me in any way he can.”

The “Lollipop” rapper is still under contract with Cash Money, but he’s working to have that resolved as quickly as possible, as we all know.

“We’re still working on that. That’s a situation. But Jay is just a good guy and he just wants to help me. That’s it. He’s gonna be helping me.”

The New Orleans native also shared an interesting tidbit about his mother and Birdman. They went to school together! Who knew?

“Also, she went to school with Baby, who became my boss. She went to school with him so it was kind of like, ‘You’re talking about that guy, my friend from school? You’re gonna be with him and y’all gon’ be superstars? Yeah right. You’re gonna go to school.’ … That’s the best part about it, that it actually came true, and that I was actually able to show her more than she ever thought she’d see.”

Weezy also talked about Aaron Hernandez’s suicide, the current state of Hip Hop, Prince’s death and more.

Wayne also sat down with Skip, Shannon Sharpe and Joy Taylor to discuss Dez Bryant’s comments about race relations. Check it below:

In music news...


Kendrick Lamar’s album sales are DAMN good. Even better than Drake’s More Life.

K. Dot’s DAMN album sold 610,000 copies it’s first week. And guess what? Those sales made the album the highest selling first week of the year, thus far. Nice! Drizzy’s More Life debuted with 505,000 units.

This week’s album sales are a career high for K.Dot, which beat the first week of his 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly. Congrats Kendrick!

Oh, and he’s not releasing any new music just yet, despite what the rumor mill is claiming:
