Drake And Chris Brown Show Their Loyalty To Lil Wayne Amid Retirement Speculation

Drake and Breezy may not get along, but their respect for Lil Wayne is the one thing they can agree on.

Hip-Hop has been in a state of shock after Lil Wayne took to Twitter to hint at what many have assumed as his retirement. Weezy has been embroiled in legal woes with Birdman and Cash Money for quite sometime that has left him as he describes "defenseless" and mentally spent.

Amid the news of Wayne's emotional state, Chris Brown and Drake both took to social media to show their support for their friend with heartwarming and encouraging posts. Brown unapologetically called many of today's artists Wayne's "students" and matter of factly stated that it was the Young Money QB who inspired him to live his life and helped mentor his career.

Drizzy also stood by his boss and mentor. After bringing him out in Philly for his Summer Sixteen tour, Lil Wayne graced the stage yet again with Drizzy as the tour made its way to Houston. Footage from the concert shows that his love for H-Town is unwavering, but he's truly done with Cash Money. 

Shortly after his performance, Drake took to Instagram to pledge his loyalty to the man who took a chance on him and gave him his start.

R. Kelly And Sony Music Agree To Part Ways Amidst Sexual Misconduct Allegations

R. Kelly and Sony Music have reportedly agreed to part ways amidst a slew of sexual misconduct allegations, according to Billboard. This comes a few weeks after the airing of the explosive documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which chronicled the musician's highly-discussed history involving teenage girls and women.

A source reveals to the publication, "Kelly had been signed to Jive since the beginning of his career in the early 1990s, and when Jive became part of Sony BMG, he became part of the Sony umbrella. He has been under contract at RCA, a Sony subsidiary, since 2012." Protests calling for Sony to drop the Pied Piper of R&B took place outside of the company's Manhattan offices on Wednesday (Jan. 16).

After the debut of the six-part docuseries, which aired over a span of three days in early-January, several former collaborators of Kelly, including Chance The Rapper, Celine Dion and Lady Gaga, have removed their songs featuring the singer-songwriter from streaming services. Kelly is reportedly under criminal investigation in both Georgia and Illinois and is said to be a direct result of allegations made in the Lifetime documentary.

"Allegations against Kelly have been around for over a decade, and he was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008," Billboard continues. "But they have resurfaced repeatedly in recent years, with the latest arriving this month. Kelly has repeatedly denied all allegations of misconduct."

Future Says Russell Wilson Needs To Be 'A Man,' Does Whatever Ciara Tells Him To Do

Future is not holding back in a new interview featured on FREEBANDZ Radio via Apple Music. The "Crushed Up" rapper discussed his new album The WIZRD with host Big Bank Black, and things got tense when he was queried about the mother of his son, Ciara, and her relationship with her husband, Russell Wilson.

“[Wilson] do exactly what she tell him to do!" Fewtch said in reference to the NFL player. "I feel like he not being a man in that position. He not tellin’ her, 'Chill out with that on the Internet. Don’t even talk to him [Future]. I’m your husband! You better not even bring Future’s name up!’"

He continues by saying that if he was still with Ciara, bringing up an ex's name in conversation wouldn't even be part of a conversation.

"If that was me, she couldn’t even bring his name up,” he continued. “She know that. She couldn’t even bring her ex's names up. I don’t care what they gave you... Don’t bring their names up in an interview! No! Don’t give that sh*t no energy. It’s about me, whatever, I’m taking care of everything, I'm a thousand percent. I live by a different kind of rules.”

"You know I'm taking care of my kids, what's the real issue?" he continues. "Y'all get married, and [Ciara] was like "I want you to meet Russell now," man, y'all already done did all the damage." However, he did give Wilson his props for helping his son learn how to play sports, and he doesn't look at that negatively.

Future and Ciara have not had an amicable split. They have gone back-and-forth with their words on social media and attempted to settle a custody battle for the four-year-old son, Future.
