Lil Wayne Out of Jail: That's Weezy

4 November 2010 2:29 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

We aren't huge hip hop fans here at More Horror, but you might here some 50 cent or Lil' Wayne playing in the office from time to time. It's being reported that rapper Lil' Wayne will walk free from New York City's infamous Rikers Island prison Thursday morning.

Wayne (Weezy) served eight months on a weapons charge, and his friends are reportedly planning an "elegant, extravagant" evening of celebration and strippers to welcome him home. We imagine they will be getting 'krunked'.

Anyone who purchases "Def Jam Rapstar" at a Best Buy between October 12 and October 19 will also receive a free copy of Lil Wayne's ninth album, entitled "I Am Not A Human Being."

Despite Lil Wayne's current incarceration, "I Am Not A Human Being" will be his second album released in less than a year, and fans of hip-hop will undoubtedly appreciate the two-for-one deal they're getting with the game and the album.

Who Is the "Barbie" Nicki Minaj?

21 July 2010 12:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The following post is from SSMagEditor, who posted it on the OnSugar blog Stimulation Status. Nicki Minaj is, what many would say, the female version of Lil Wayne. She is what I would say well on her way to being a recognized force among both her male and female peers. With her witty punchlines and animated face she has the ability to make new listeners want to know who she is and where she came from. Onika Maraj is her birth name, she was raised in Jamaica Queens, New York. Despite what the naysayers may think she isn't your typical rapper, she has taken a page out of the Missy Elliot handbook and sings as well, in order to stand out among the other female rappers in the game. Before signing to Lil' Wayne's Young Money label she was already a force to be reckoned with in the underground circuit. »
