Over the weekend, I watched the first portion of The Carter, an unauthorized documentary on Lil Wayne released on the Internet last year. The Carter was originally undertaken with Lil Wayne's blessing, but the rapper later withdrew his support for the film (and sued the filmmakers), ostensibly due to its depictions of Wayne's heavy drug [...]

The cataloging of sexual euphemisms in rap songs continues. This time:
I spent part of Washington's snowed-in weekend sipping bourbon, building an igloo, and listening to one anonymous woman's horrific karaoke rendition of Deborah Cox's 1998 power ballad, "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here."

Invent a bizarre euphemisms for fun and profit. Below, the top ten euphemisms for sex [...]

Wayne doesn't get into the logistics, but that's gotta be a scenario that involves some nonconsensual sex. The original song, at [...]
Katie Couric fell into some pretty serious mom jeans territory last night in her pre-Grammy interview with Lil' Wayne. How nerdy does Couric look compared to Weezy? Let me count the ways:
Have you seen this boy?
Where have you been during all this, Weezy? T.I.'s here. Jay-Z's here. Young Jeezy' s here. Diddy's here. But whither Weezy? And don't say "I've been hustlin'"!
