Cash Money Records president, Maine reassures fans that Lil Wayne’s album, Tha Carter V will be released during the first quarter of 2015:
He’s touching up the album and about to start another special project for the people. I can’t give a definitive date. I can just say first quarter for sure. … It’s coming out. Don’t get it twisted like it’s not coming out.
The rapper is sued by the previous owners of YoungMoney.com for their site name back. Wayne owes a balance of $250,000 on the purchase of the domain name and the contract states payments must be made on time which are now past due. The site’s original use was for young entrepreneurs to make and manage their money.

It’s just basically like some old Addams Family-type, trailer-park trash and Wayne is just like in these different houses going crazy.

Minaj releaseHigh Schoolft. Lil Wayne music video from her album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up, directed from Benny Boom.
Wayne said we had to kiss for the video. He was like, one thing that’s going to sell it is if we really kiss. I’m like, ehh. Not only is he my boss, but he’s also like my brother. It’s very weird because I’m just used to Wayne making fun of me, and all of Young Money boys making fun of me, so every time they yelled “Cut!” I was just being picked on.

Birdman releasesYU Mad video featuring Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne from the album Bigga Than Life. Directed by Gil Green the video features minaj dressed as the female version of Lil Wayne performing with Wayne and Birdman. Birdman:
Nicki gave me that song. She called me one day like, ‘Stunna, I got a record for you I think you would like. I jumped on it and put my son on it. I liked it from the start. Working with Nicki is just special anyway and I felt good about it, so we rocked with it.
Lil Wayne gives and interview with GQ’s Claire Hoffman about his plan to retire at age 35.
Basically, I have been doing this for eighteen years. That’s reason number one. I have accomplished all that I have set out to accomplish and more. Also, I have a label, and I’ve only put out two artists [Drake and Nicki Minaj]. I have a lot more work to do, and it’d be selfish to not focus on being the boss and focus on their projects.
But the main reason is my kids, my children. Now, if I thought I’d be selfish to my artists, imagine what I think I would be doing to my kids. I have enough money that they don’t have to ever do anything—which, they will do everything, ’cause they ain’t getting shit. Six [more] years, I can do this Lil Wayne thing, and my boys will be about 7 and 8 years old. And man, it’s all about them then. You know, whatever they’re doing. Sports. Whatever they’re into. That’s where I am. I’m at every game. I’m the dad with the hat on. The jersey. That’s me.
