Watch Lil Wayne in Hilarious Skit With Future, Pete Davidson on ‘Saturday Night Live’
While it wasn’t quite a Donald Glover turn, Lil Wayne made the most of his appearance on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” performing two songs and contributing a long guest verse to “Permission,” one of the show’s trademark hip-hop comedy clips.

In “Permission,” the show’s Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd play the Booty Kings, a fictional rap duo performing a standard hip-hop booty anthem — but with a twist. After the pair approach some women in a club, they accept the denial cheerfully and without pressing.

“Wait a minute, you’re just gonna respect our wishes?” one of the women says.

“Hell yeah, times have changed!” they reply. “We’re on some new respectful stuff.”

The song continues with lyrics like, “Shake that booty … If you wanna” as the pair wonder whether they can use the word “hoes.” Guest verses from a low-tuned Uncle Butt, Future and Lil Wayne follow.

Quavo Exposes Nicki Minaj Fling With "Huncho Dreams" Rap

Quavo Exposes Nicki Minaj Fling With
Nicki Minaj gets a special shout-out on Quavo's new album, Quavo Huncho. Unfortunately, Minaj probably would have preferred he didn't mention her at all. "Huncho Dreams," produced by DigitalNas and Murda Beatz, is being regarded as Quavo's response to Minaj's "Barbie Dreams," in which she calls out male rappers ranging from 50 Cent to Lil' Wayne. In the single—which Minaj says is not a diss track—she raps, "Somebody go and make sure Karrueche okay, though / I heard she think I'm tryna give the coochie to Quavo / They always wanna beat it up, goon up the p---y / Man, maybe I should let him auto-tune up the p---y." In response, Quavo exposes Minaj and their long-rumored...

All of 2017’s Best Music, Ranked

All of 2017’s Best Music, Ranked
Damn. it was a good year for music.

It didn’t always feel that way, though. While Kendrick Lamar’s aforementioned fourth studio album -- which hit like a meteor on the Friday before the rapper’s monster set to close out Coachella -- much of 2017 was defined by growers rather than out of the gate jams and much of the summer passed without a bona fide “Song of” said season. (Barely. More on that in a second.)

Really, it's only on looking back at the cavalcade of "Best Of" lists that footnote every year that you realize how full of noteworthy sounds 2017 in particular was. And now, with the nearly ubiquitous acceptance of streaming as the primary method of song consumption, not only is the roster of artists who find both large audiences and critical acclaim more diverse and democratized than ever, but the entire idea of a publication-determined "Best Music of the Year" feels almost silly.

Khalid Reflects on His ‘Whirlwind’ 2017 & What It Will Mean to Take His Mom to the GRAMMYs (Exclusive)
2017 has been quite a year for Khalid.

The 19-year-old performer kicked things off strong in January, when his breakthrough single, “Location,” hit the Billboard R&B Top 10. Two months later, the song’s remix -- featuring Lil Wayne and Kehlani -- was released, along with his debut album, American Teen. In August, he won Best New Artist at the VMAs. By November, he was a Grammy nominee.

“This year has most absolutely been one big whirlwind,” the artist, born Khalid Donnel Robinson, recently told Et. “I try to take all of my experiences in and not take anything for granted. It’s really hard for me to pick and choose highlights because everything has been so incredible!”

It may be tough for him to pick a standout moment from a year that looks more like a best-of reel, but one highlight has to be the singer calling his own shot when it comes to the GRAMMYs. On the morning
