Ooh, Lil Wayne brought the street to the set when he sat down with that queen of gangsta culture…Katie Couric. Lil Wayne spent about 11 minutes with perky “Miss Katie”, and let her know what life was and is like for the reigning King Of Rap. Hint: Weezy is a bowling, music journalist who loves him some chronic.
The BET Hip-Hop Awards were held in Atlanta Saturday night, and rapper Lil Wayne, 26, announced that his first son will be born in “a couple of days.” Lil Wayne won Lyricist Of The Year, and announced:
“I got a son about to be born any day now, so shout-out to him. Pray for me”
He also won the MVP of the Year award, beating out Jay-Z, T.I. and Kanye West. He dedicated the award to his daughter, Reginae Carter…who was falsely (fortunately) rumored to have died in an auto accident this August.
Singer Nivea is rumored to be the baby mama, although no confirmation’s been made. She AND Lil Wayne are rumored to be engaged, and both have been seen recently wearing rings on the right fingers.
Weezy’s got the #1 album in the country right now: Tha Carter III, which sold 400,000 copies it’s first day, and has already sold over 1 million. It’s earned the distinction of being the first studio offering since 50 Cent’s 2005 LP The Massacre to sell more than 1 million copies in a single week. The Weezy Nation has spoken!
