Lil Wayne's Remix To 'Old Town Road' Leaks

It will be no surprise next week when Lil Nas X finally breaks the record for the longest-running No. 1 one the Billboard Hot 100 in history. "Old Town Road" has been inescapable for months, and thanks to remixes featuring guest spots from Billy Ray Cyrus, Young Thug, Mason Ramsey, and RM from the K-Pop supergroup BTS, nothing is gonna stop this horse from riding.

There's also a new remix in town. The Lil Wayne feature on the hit song has been leaked onto the Internet.

"Ooh, she got that honky-tonk, I met her on 'Farmers Only,'" Tunechi spits. "She ride me, say 'yeehaw Mayne,' call me 'Lil John Wayne.'"

“They sent it to me and I did it as an official remix,” Weezy said last week of appearing on the track. “I’m not sure if they was gonna use it.” In his version, he replaces Ramsey and raps alongside Thugger, Cyrus and Lil Nas X.

"When you break that record, make sure it’s not a record to you," Wayne continues in his interview, where he gave the 20-year-old advice on how to stay afloat in the music industry. "Make sure you don’t even realize it nor recognize it at all. Put that in your head that someone else broke that record and you want to break their record. Plain and simple. Because I can’t even tell you if I was No. 1 on the charts because it never mattered. The only thing that ever should matter, bro, is your next song."

Is Chris Brown Having A Son?

Is Chris Brown having another baby? According to sources close to the entertainer, the answer is yes.

TMZ reports the 30-year-old singer will welcome his newest bundle of joy in the fall with ex-girlfriend Ammika Harris, who is allegedly pregnant with a boy. This will be Harris' first child and Brown's first boy. The Indigo artist is already a proud papa to his 5-year-old daughter Royalty who he had with Nia Guzman.

While Harris and Brown aren't together, the two are reportedly co-existing well and appear to have a handle on their forthcoming co-parenting.

News the former couple was expecting made its way to the Internet in June. However, fans raised a suspicious digital eyebrow when Brown commented on one of Harris' photos a month prior.

"Yup," he wrote. "BM bad."

BM being short-hand for "baby mama."

The same company that owns Monopoly, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Power Rangers, and thee Mr.Potato Head now owns the famous (and infamous) west coast record label Death Row Records.

Hasbro Toy Company purchased Entertainment One multimedia company, which also reportedly has a music division. According to Rolling Stone, E One's music label earned more than $30 million in 2019's first quarter. Six years ago, Entertainment One purchased Death Row's catalog for $280 million.

In a statement, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner expressed his excitement about owning the beloved and respected record label.

“The acquisition of eOne adds beloved story-led global family brands that deliver strong operating returns to Hasbro’s portfolio and provides a pipeline of new brand creation driven by family-oriented storytelling,” he said.

While Death Row records has gone down in history as one of hip-hop's most successful and influential labels, it's co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight has fallen from grace.

In October 2018, Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison for the 2015 hit-and-run death of Terry Carter, which was caught on surveillance. CNN reports he faced life in prison for one count of attempted murder after Knight maimed Cle "Bone" Sloan with his truck. Sloan survived the incident.
