Puerto Rico's Lary Over Brings Debut Album 'El Wason BB' To Miami's Calle Ocho Festival

The Latin trap star kept the "Henny" flowing in the 305.

If Lary Over's name doesn't ring a bell, then it's time to get acquainted. The Latin trap star straight out of Carolina, Puerto Rico has been making a name for himself by working with the likes of Love & Hip-Hop: Miami producer Young Hollywood, Anuel AA and more, since 2015. After his breakout single "Booty Call" with Farruko went viral in 2016, Lary né Raymond Guevara has been putting in work with some of the best names in reggaeton for his debut album El Wason BB, and now it's finally here.

On a Wednesday night (Mar. 7), Lary teamed up with Hennessy at Miami's Blu Martini Brickell to officially celebrate his debut album. After breaking out the Hennessy bottles, Lary hit the stage, with prominent Latino producers such as Maffio and the likes of frequent collaborator Farruko in the crowd.

"I feel good about everything we're doing," Lary told VIBE. "We're in a good place digitally, and I'm feeling great about where my career is heading. It's something new that I'm excited about, and have been waiting on for a long time gracias a papá Dios (thanks to God.)"

But Lary didn't end there. Over the weekend (Mar. 11), the 22-year-old rapper upped the ante by bringing his 14-track studio album to life on an even bigger stage at Miami's revered festival, Calle Ocho. El Wason BB features singles "Sola," "Henny" and "Harley Quinn," as well as other stellar collaborations featuring urban Latin giants Zion y Lennox and reggaeton's newest key players Farruko, Bryant Myers and Brytiago, among others.

"Right now I have all the best producers, Rvssian, Sharo Torres, Yecko and more," Lary said about the album's production. "They're three producers who have had a lot of hits, and I feel that it's an honor to be able to work with them."

Lary may sound like he's strictly dedicated to the rhythmic sounds that reign supreme in Puerto Rico, yet he's drawn musical inspiration from North American rappers like Meek Mill early on in his career. However, when it comes to his introduction to the game, there's only one true inspiration that comes to mind: familia. "My biggest influence right now is my son, all my family, and my wife. They're all inspiration for me to be who I am and where I'm at today."

Judge Sides With Nicki Minaj In Tracy Chapman Court Battle

A judge has sided with Nicki Minaj in her legal dispute with Tracy Chapman. U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips ruled that Minaj’s song “Sorry” falls under the “fair use” and not copyright infringement as Chapman claimed, Variety reports.

Minaj was reportedly unaware that her song, “Sorry,” featured lyrics and a bit of the melody from Chapman’s 1988 track, “Baby Can I Hold You” when it was recorded. She  reached out to Chapman to get permission to use the song but was ultimately turned down. Since she couldn't get legal clearance, the track never made it to the Queen album, but Chapman’s attorneys accused Minaj of leaking the track to Funkmaster Flex. Although Minaj confirmed sending Flex an Instagram message about the song, she denies actually sending it. “I had a change of heart,” she later testified. “I never sent the recording.”

Flex said that he obtained the recording from a “blogger,” not Minaj.

In her decision, Judge Phillips reportedly noted that artists tend to “experiment” with music before they attempt to get proper licensing.

“Artists usually experiment with works before seeking licenses from rights holders and rights holders typically ask to see a proposed work before approving a license,” the judge wrote. “A ruling uprooting these common practices would limit creativity and stifle innovation within the music industry.”

Despite the ruling, the question remains over whether or not Minaj should be held liable for the song being leaked. Last month, Minaj’s attorneys filed court papers requesting that Chapman’s motion for a summary judgment be denied in full.

Big Sean Debuts ‘Deep Reverence’ Feat. Nipsey Hussle

Big Sean delivered his collaboration with Nipsey Hustle “Deep Reverence” on Monday (Aug. 24). The 32-year-old rapper decided to drop the song after  finishing up his highly anticipated Detroit 2 album due out next week.

“My heart and my gut was saying not only do people deserve that song right now,”  Sean tweeted on Tuesday (Aug. 25). “I felt like hearing nips [sic] voice, his presence and the energy of the song itself was needed and deserved it’s own moment!”

A snippet of the song debuted during Hit-Boy and Boi1da's Verzuz battle in April. Sean said that he has wanted to release the song ever since then.

“My label (a few people there, not the whole label) thought it wasn’t smart to put this song out ahead of my album, they told my team I should hold on to it...they still supported my decision in the end tho [sic],” he explained in another tweet.

The record opens with a clever and poignant verse from Nipsey. “F*ck rap I’m a street legend, block love me with a deep reverence,” he raps. “I was birthed in a C-section/Hella cops and police presence, we got opps so we keep weapons. We on y’all block while y’all eat breakfast. A lot of shots, we broke street records. Watch how you talk, I got reflexes.”

On Sean’s verse, he reveals that he reached out to Kendrick Lamar after Nipsey was killed and addresses the alleged beef between him and the Compton MC. Fans also believe that he hinted at  Jhené Aiko suffering a miscarriage. “Should be a billionaire based on the time off I’m not takin,’” raps Sean. “Probably why the sh*t with me got crazy and we lost a baby.”
