Lil Wayne appearances are about to be in again, and with the interview with Katie Couric being the most watched video on the site these past few days, Weezy of the Week may be back…

Number 7 was the best.

(update: old video was deleted, it’s been re-upped and should work fine now)

Just saw this on Nation’s Twitter, and it’s already up on Nah Right. Video leaks for the win.

This is the much “heralded” Grammy interview Katie Couric conducted with Lil Weezy. The trailer may have gotten us a lil too hype if you ask me…

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Just when I thought Weezy of the Week may be in its last days, it’s been resurrected. And he ain’t even dead! (c) Huey Freeman.

Katie’s faces at certain points in this video are too much. This interview is going to be great. Like Steelers winning the Super Bowl great.

DOWNLOAD: Drake - Unstoppable Remix (ft Santogold and Lil Wayne)

Here’s a leak from Drake’s upcoming mixtape, So Far Gone. That mixtape should be hitting the internets soon, like in-the-next-few-weeks soon. If you haven’t seen the artwork for the mixtape either, that’s the presumed cover-art above. “Unstoppable” was produced by Diplo (Santogold and Diplo together? Shocking).

With any justice, of all these rappers on the cusp on blowing up this year, Drake will be one of them. It doesn’t hurt to have Weezy cosigning you when he’s in his prime either.

See if you can catch my favorite line. I’ll give you a hint: it’s about everyone’s favorite 90’s sitcom starring Fred Savage’s younger brother.

Did Weezy really just make Skip Bayless and the talking heads on ESPN look like anyone can do their job?

Weezy called it for the Cardinals, Steelers, Ravens, and I’m pretty sure he got the Eagles too.

…and he ain’t even dead.

There’s a Lil Wayne documentary currently wrapping up that is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. The Carter, is filmmaker Adam Bhala Lough’s chronicle of a day in the life of Weezy. It’s being billed by the Sundance Festival’s PR department as “an in-depth look at the artist… proclaimed by many as the ‘greatest rapper alive.” The film will feature the usual one-on-one interviews and commentary by Dwayne’s closest friends.

Cool, I guess. Weezy’s fine by me, but he never struck me as the most interesting rapper to shoot a whole film on. I don’t like to offer idle criticism either, so I made a top 3 list of my own “must-see rapper docs.”

1. Sean Price - All I had to see was this, to know I need to see more.

2. Joe Budden - We already get Joe Budden TV, so this isn’t required… but I’d watch it. Plus, give us more footage like this, and you have a winner.

3. Jim Jones- He’s drawing out a plan to be the next big thing, Dame Dash follows him around, and he’s entertaining as hell. Who in the Dipset isn’t (wasn’t…?)?

Lil’ Wayne & DJ Drama - Dedication 3 (mixtape)

In one of my Weezy of the Week columns back when I was writing at UGHH, I said that we were in a golden age of Wayne and Weezy of the Week, and now I feel like the ending of that era is upon us. Not because Wayne’s done anything different, but he’s a superstar now. The non-hip-hop following public looks to Weezy as the face of rap (deserved or not), and nothing I can write about here is really news to anyone.

I don’t break Weezy stories anymore (not that I ever did), but before he was the cross-over hit he is now, he was that Louisiana rapper we all loved, or loved to hate. He was also the king of the mixtape circuit for god knows how long.

That’s where this fits in. The Dedication 3, the end-all-be-all of mixtapes that DJ Drama and Weezy have been cookin’ up forever, is upon us. I don’t know if I’ll hear this everywhere I go- from the suburbs of Scottsdale, AZ to the bodegas in East NY- but if I do, I’ll feel like Weezy of the Week did one last service in helping bring it to the masses.

(Props to illRoots for a good download link with the full mixtape)

As I’m watching the VP debate and trying to eat solid food for the first time in days, that quote came across my screen from Miss Info’s blog.

Apparently part 3 in the “Swagger Like Us” phenomena is going to come from Lil Weezy, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana. And that’s their version of the hook: “All These Other Rappers Jack Swagger from Us.”

I love rappers.

And Miss Info also said that the track “Swaggerjack from Us,” will be on Jim Jones’ latest album, droppin’ Dec 9 (didn’t he just release an album?).

I’m not even super into this song to begin with, but in a weird way, I actually really want to hear this.

I’m a little late with this, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s pretty dope. Weezy is apparently going to be a guest blogger for ESPN.com. In his first installment, he writes about the teams he likes and the NFL. I’m not sure how I feel about him droppin’ Ben Roethlisberger though.

T-Wayne played football as a kid and I bet you can’t guess which position he played.

I grew up playing football. Believe it or not, I was a fullback. When I was nine, ten, eleven, I was a great blocker. I knew how to block real good and the other kids didn’t.

Download: Korn/Slipknot- Weezy’s “Got Money” Remix

This track is kinda hot, I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t feelin’ it. On a slow ass weekend, this definitely is one of the few things to stand out. It’s funny this popped up too, cuz I was just going through albums I bumped when I was younger, and I definitely put in Korn’s Issues yesterday.

I’m not sure Slipknot had anything to do with this track, unless they did the instrumentals, because it’s just Korn’s frontman Jonathan David singing, with the autotune no less.

For what it’s worth, there’s no such thing as “rap-rock” anymore if you ask me, because everything’s a hybrid these days (which is awesome).

Shout to illRoots for this.
