Lil Wayne

Now that Lil Wayne is embroiled in a $51 million lawsuit with his label, Cash Money Records, his album Tha Carter V has been shelved indefinitely. Therefore, he is turning his attention to a new project: The Free Weezy Album. The rapper told Rolling Stone that he's been putting in 12-hour studio shifts on the new album, which he plans to release for free in March.
     "I'm working on it every day, man," Wayne said. "I guarantee it's going to be something dope. If you don't want a musician being creative, don't get The Free Weezy Album." He also confirmed that Tha Carter V is on ice for now. "It's super-done," he said about recording the album. "Cake baked, icing on top, name on top, candles lit. I would have released it yesterday if I could. But it's a dead subject right now."
     Previously Wayne said publicity that Tha Carter V would be his last solo album and that he was ready to retire from music, but he seems to be having second thoughts. Instead he hopes to spend most of 2015 on tour, and he'd like to do some recording overseas while he's at it.
     "I've thought about [retiring]," Weezy told Rolling Stone. "But for a person like me that bleeds, eats, sleeps and shits music, it's hard to do."

Kanye West sat in on WWPR (Power 105.1)/New York's morning show The Breakfast Club on Friday chatting with the team for almost an hour about a wide variety of topics. After starting with a discussion of his fashion and sneaker lines (during which West said he was "the most influential person in footwear"), the topic turned to the Grammy fallout.
     West admitted he hadn't even heard Beck's Morning Phase before his post-Grammy rant, and ironically heard the Album of the Year for the first time while having dinner at a restaurant with Taylor Swift. However, he primarily reiterated many of his previous thoughts on the issue.
Most notably, West discussed his upcoming album, expected out later this year. He said that while Yeezus was "protest music," the next record is going to about "bars, songs, cookout music that just feels good This album is embracing the music, joy. Being of service to the people. I just hope people like it and enjoy it." He added it is roughly "80 percent done" and hinted at a potential surprise release.
     He also revealed his newest track "Wolves" came from a discussion with Drake about collaborating on an album called Wolves, and while the project is on the backburner, it isn't completely out of the question.

John Legend and Common are now Oscar winners, after the pair won the Academy Award for Best Original Song on Sunday night for "Glory" from the movie Selma. They also gave a powerful performance of the track, and the song saw a 250 percent jump in streaming on music service Rdio. However, Adam Levine and Maroon 5 earned the most Shazamed performance of the night for the piece "Lost Stars," a Best Song nominee from the film Begin Again.

Wiz Khalifa and Iggy Azalea have released "Go Hard Or Go Home," their new collaboration from the soundtrack to Furious 7. The track is available now on iTunes, while the Furious7 soundtrack will be released on March 17. Azalea is rumored to have a cameo in the newest edition of the long-running film series, which arrives in theaters on April 3.

Pharrell Williams is turning the Grammy-winning song "Happy" into inspiration for a book. Pharrell has reportedly inked a deal with Putnam Books for Young Readers for four picture books, starting with one titled "Happy." It will be published on September 22 and will feature photographs of children from around the world "celebrating what it means to be happy," according to Billboard.com.
