Lil Wayne has been mired in a conflict with his label, Cash Money, for over a year now and has repeatedly dissed the label's head and man he has referred to as his dad, Birdman over no less than three mixtapes and a Drake mixtape seemingly aimed in his direction. Birdman was also implicated in a plot to murder Wayne over the summer (alongside Young Thug), but it seems like things might be cooling down after the pair have appeared together twice now since NYE. Maybe the perpetually delayed Carter V is closer than we thought.

Young Thug has shared his new mixtape Slime Season. The most eye-catching thing in the mixtape's 18 tracks is the opener, "Take Kare," which features Lil Wayne. You might remember Thug being accused, alongside Birdman, of conspiring to murder Lil Wayne a few months ago. The song originally was released in November of 2014, before the beef started in earnest, but it's appearance here seems to indicate they may have buried the hatchet. Either way, you can download Slime Season here.

Lil Wayne has taken to twitter to announce yet another delay of Tha Carter V. This time though, he lays the blame squarely at the feet of his label and long time mentor/benefactor Birdman, claiming he and his creativity are prisoners. Pusha T (in a Suge Knight voice) chimed in telling Wayne to move to G.O.O.D. Music if he "wants to drop albums & don't want ur CEO rubbing they hands all in your videos."

In what might be my favorite piece of tour novelties ever, Drake and Lil Wayne have released a Capcom-developed app based on Street Fighter called "DvsLW" to accompany their upcoming "Drake VS. Lil Wayne Tour." The app will apparently allow the crowd at the tour to "power up" the rappers during a rap battle portion of the concert by button mashing. They're also including trading cards featuring the rappers in the tours VIP packages.

Once upon a time, I respected Lil Wayne's skills as an artist. But now he's added the cherry to the shit sundae that is his current career - contributing a verse to new labelmate Paris Hilton's new single, "Good Time." You can witness the horror for yourself by checking out a clip of the song in the replies. The rapper actually sums up the entire situation fairly well in his verse's opening line "I'm fucked up/I can't tell you what's what."

Lil Wayne is currently hospitalized.
Sources say there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.

However, TMZ also just updated with, "Wayne's mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles -- and we're told all major decisions about Wayne's health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives."
