Lil Wayne: "Carter V Is Ready To Be Listened To"

While speaking with Wild Wayne on Q93, Weezy said when it's the right time, the fans will be able to indulge in what Tha Carter V has to offer.

Lil Wayne's fans have been treated to new tunes from the New Orleans native like his In Tune We Trust mixtape and his past joint project with T-Pain. Now, his supporters are probably rejoicing thanks to news of Tha Carter V's imminent arrival.

While speaking with Wild Wayne on Q93, Weezy said when it's the right time, the fans will be able to indulge in what Tha Carter V has to offer. "Of course you're going to see Tha Carter V. I don't want to put it out the wrong way. Honestly, I can do what I want honestly at any time," he said. "The fans deserve it to be right and that's how it's gonna be. I'm going to make sure it's right. I can drop whatever I want to drop. I keep dropping whatever I want to drop. But I'm not going to give them Carter V the wrong way."

Although Wayne and Cash Money's Birdman's strained relationship has partly involved the project's release, the latter also mentioned Tha Carter V's debut during an interview with Billboard. "You will get it this year," he said. "Me and Wayne will be alright. I'm going to make that work. That's my son and I love him, and we'll make it happen."

During his iHeartRadio interview, the Weezyana Fest creator (Aug. 25), reassured listeners that, "Carter V is done. Carter V on the shelf just ready to drop... I move on and keep it moving and give them what I'm doing right now. But Carter V is ready to be listened to. It's just gotta be listened to the right way. Like I said, I ain't gonna give it to them wrong."

Diddy Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit With Former Chef

Diddy has reportedly reached a settlement with his former personal chef in a sexual misconduct lawsuit that was filed in 2017, NBC Los Angeles reports.

The settlement stems from a lawsuit Cindy Rueda filed nearly two years ago. Rueda was reportedly Diddy's personal chef from Apr. 2015 to May 2016. She accused the Bad Boy mogul of sexual harassment and unfair wages. She claimed that she never received additional pay for extra work hours during her time of employment.

Additionally, she alleged that Diddy requested that Rueda serve breakfast to him and a guest in his bedroom. During those incidents, she said she was forced to see "Mr. Combs and his guest indisposed and engaged in sexual activity." Upon entering, she alleged that he would then yell and curse at her.

In Aug. 2017, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge sent Rueda's case to mediation outside of the court due to the terms of an agreement she previously signed as an employee for Diddy.

The terms or value of the settlement has not been disclosed at this time.

Video Surfaces Of Osundairo Brothers Buying Supplies For Jussie Smollett Attack

A new video of the Osundairo brothers, the two who alleged Jussie Smollett hired them to stage an attack in Chicago earlier this year, has surfaced online. The video shows Ola and Abel Osundairo purchasing supplies that were allegedly used in the attack.

The video, which was obtained by CBS, shows the two brothers stepping up to the cashier's counter to buy ski masks, gloves, bandanas, sunglasses, and red hats that resembled MAGA hats. At one point in the video, Abel pulls his hood over his head, perhaps in an attempt to avoid showing his face on surveillance cameras.
