From Rikers Island To The Carter: DJ Scoob Doo Talks Lil Wayne's Homecoming

When you think of the of people closest to Lil Wayne, only a few names outside of the Young Money Cash Money family come to mind. Weezy’s tight knit circle is impenetrable; teflon. Making the exception for hollow tips, few are able to get past his outer layer and inside to the core of Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter.

Upon his release from Rikers Island on Nov 4th, 2010, there have been only a handful of cameras fortunate enough to capture the Martian. However, the most personal moments in Wayne’s homecoming were caught by close friend and unofficial videographer DJ Scoob Doo. As a part of Weezy’s inner circle, Young Money’s resident cameraman took VIBE from Rikers Island back to the Carter.—Mikey Fresh

 


 

VIBE: Can you reveal you current location, Scoob?

DJ Scoob Doo: Right now, I’m on the 3rd floor of The Carter, working non-stop and as you know The Carter is located in Miami now.

So you're filming for Nino Brown 4 already? People are still waiting for Part 3.

You’re one of the few people who got to see the masterpiece. I actually got to show Wayne the Nino Brown 3 DVD after he got out of jail. I can’t wait for it to hit the streets.

The moments you capture with Wayne are so candid. What do you think is the best part of filming with him?

I’d say just seeing the reaction of Wayne being extra happy and joyful and being able to catch all that. Somebody like Wayne, he doesn’t let a lot of people around him. So it’s harder to catch historic things that he does. When I have the cameras around him, it’s not like he’s acting or changing what he does. My footage is real moments in his life.

What was Weezy’s mindstate like before he went in?

I think life was moving so fast for him before he went in that he knew what he was doing but there were other things occupying his mind. So for him to see what he did before he went in was priceless.

Can you take us through what it was like on the day he was released?

Everybody thought he was coming out of the regular exit, just like any other inmate. And the gates would open like in The Shawshank Redemption, but it wasn’t nothing like that because Wayne is such a high profile person.

How did it really go down?

There were some measures taken to avoid a riot from all the people gathered outside of the jail and move him out of Rikers unknowingly. People were still at the jail after he left because he went out a special way. I think it was the first time they allowed something like that. Wayne had his Maybach come and get him from inside the jail. Once that happened, we all met him at an undisclosed location and that’s where the family was waiting for him. Really, closed off from the outside world.

Incoming Attorney General Letitia James Planning Investigation Of Donald Trump And Co.

Incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James is planning a sweeping investigation of Donald Trump, his family and anyone associated with the president.

While speaking with NBC News, James said she will use every corner of the law to look at any illegal activity committed.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well," James said.

Specifically, James will investigate any illegal activity associated with the president's New York real-estate holdings, including the 2016 meeting with a Russian official at Trump Tower and any government subsidies he's received.

"We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” the Democratic attorney general said.

After James announced her forthcoming investigation, Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen will face the music for lying to Congress and violating campaign laws. Cohen faces four years in prison.

Petty is a registered sex offender in the state of New York and did a seven-year stint in prison for manslaughter. In conjunction with Petty, there has also been a discussion about Nicki's support of her brother Jelani Maraj, who was convicted in 2017 of child rape charges. In Palmer's report on the Queen artist's current beau, it seems like he's only reporting the news, Deadspin notes. The news site published a video of the actual report where Palmer discusses the matter with co-host Alicia Quarles.

Here’s what the next two weeks look like on the @latelateshow! Seeing the year out with a bang x x x

A post shared by James Corden (@j_corden) on Dec 10, 2018 at 5:17pm PST

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.
