The Lil Wayne case is all over the streets now so I guess I qualify to speak on it a little bit. First let me provide the setting for you, Atlantic Station where the situation occurred is one of the newest, upscale shopping, dining and entertainment venues in the city.
According to a couple of reliable sources in attendance, the situation went down down like this. A hotel liason was summoned to Weezy's room for a hotel repair and claimed to have spotted a little over a pound of weed in the room. From there, the hunt was on.
When the police finally caught up with him all they found was a piece of an already sparked blunt and some prescription pills. The pills were a violation because they were not in his name. If you have ever needed to pick up a prescription for someone else let alone yourself, then you already know the scrutiny you face.

These are not serious charges, some other MCs in the city wish they were facing these minor infractions considering the cases they have picked up over the past few months. No need to mention their names and beat a dead horse. That's 1/2 of the problem with hip-hop now, we glorify the bad and alienate the good. Damn bloggers... LOL.
But anyway, if you were wondering where the pound of weed went? It was never found. So it appears to have been a fabrication to get the chase going, either that or we have a police duo or a maintenace worker chinky-eyed, running around smelling like purp?
So, basically this does not seem as major as it's being portrayed all over the news. Jus, hurry up and get back on on them mixtapes Weezy -- we don't care how old you aint. Just keep spittin that real pimpin because whatever you were smokin when you made The Carter II..., keeeep smokin it.
NOW BACK TO OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING....
Blackberry Molasses''''...Is this the same cat? I forget sometimes.
But check out the new single from Bobby Valentino, "Turn the Page" produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. It's his first release from his forthcoming release Special Occasion, which drops September 19!
Truthfully, the track is cool! But that outfit, playa'?
And what about the silent battle between the two lead crooners of two of the most respected labels in the city? With Sleepy Brown's album dropping around the same time, it will be interesting to see who moves more units. We already know that Sleepy's debut track "Margarita" is killing it as we speak.
I don't know but personally.... give me Sleepy and "Me and my baby in my Cadillac" in the daytime and Bobby V.'s ballads for the late-nights.
(I've gotta throw Grand Hustle's Governor and Rashad in the mix too. They're next to make waves)
Big ups to the new Atlanta R&B movement.
