In our new music roundup Lil Wayne disses Birdman in a Young Money Cyper, Ameriie drops a new single called “Out Loud” and Dawn Richard has a video called “Projection.”
In a new 13-min film, Lil Wayne introduces the next generation of Young Money stars in a rap cypher set to the beat of Lil Keke’s H-town classic “Southside.”
The “Next Up” cypher stars Lil Twist, Hood, Euro, Flow, Cory Gunz (son of Love & Hip Hop NY star Peter Gunz), Gudda Gudda, and of course Lil’ Wayne. But here’s why you’ll want to want the entire movie, Lil Wayne comes for Birdman hard.
In the midst of a few bars about Biggie and Tupac, you’ll hear this “I sing ‘Dear Mama’ to my dear mama and sing ‘Hit ‘Em Up’ to my daddy bitch ass.” Ouch….
Umm…once a dude from the projects of New Orleans calls you a “bitch ass”, we don’t think there’s a way to resolve the friendship. SMH…it’s obvious that the two have not resolved Wayne’s $51 Million lawsuit against Cash Money. Now we’re wondering if their father/son bond is irretrievably broken? Sounds like it…
In new singles…
Ameriie is back with another buzz-worthy cut. Although we haven’t heard much from the songstress since her single 2014 “Mustang” , she’s got another track on deck for the radio…..the dance-friendly single “Out Loud.” Fans will notice that the song is heavy on percussion, much like her break-out single “1 Thing.” Could this be the jam to put her back on the map?
Also, she’s reportedly still working on the long-delayed disc Cymatika, Vol. 1 and also has an additional album coming down the pipeline named BILI (a nod to her 2007 album Because I Love It). There are also rumors of an EP coming soon. We’ll keep you posted….
In new videos…
Dawn Richard next effort from her critically-acclaimed album Blackheart in the Monty March-directed clip “Projection.”
In addition to the black-and white clip, Dawn is hoping to spark a social media frenzy. She’s asking fans to submit their own Vine covers of “Projection” using the hashtag #ProjectYou. She plans to repost her favorites. Also, we’ve learned that she’ll be at SXSW in Austin on March 19 and headline a show at London’s Jazz Café on June 2nd.
