Watch Lil Wayne BET’s “I Am Hip Hop Award 2018” Acceptance Speech

i refuse to stop GIF by BET Hip Hop Awards

Weezy took the stage to accept his I Am Hip-Hop Award at BET Hip Hop  Awards 2018.

Portion of the acceptance speech below:

“I must give this award to the people who refused. What I mean by that [is] the people who refused to stop supporting me during all the…you already know. The people who refused to see me as haven’t put an album out in six years, four years. You guys respected me, you guys supported me. You came to every show. You respected every album, every feature. My family. My family refused, refused to stop motivating me. To stop treating me as if I am not the man. As if I am not the father who I am. As if I am not the person who I am. They refused to let me feel anything less. Please give it up to my family.”

Then, Weezy speaks about his  suicide attempt at the age of 12, Weezy took his hat off not only to his fans, family and steadfast supporters, but to a man by the name of Uncle Bob. “He came into an apartment one day, he bust in the door,” Weezy said of Uncle Bob, who has a then-homicide detective, when he found a young Dwayne Carter in his near-death state. “Guns drawn—he saw nobody. He saw legs on the floor. It was my legs. He saw blood everywhere. A bunch of police hopped over me. He refused to do so.”

To this day, Weezy revealed, Uncle Bob now has two amputated legs, but refuses to accept even a meal from the NOLA rap icon. But as he held his glimmering award in his hand, he bowed to Uncle Bob for inspiring a refusal Wayne has held onto his entire hip-hop tenure: giving up.

Beyonce Restraining Ordered Request Denied

Animated GIF

Last month Beyoncé’s former drummer filed a restraining order against the pop star claiming she was using extreme witchcraft to sexually molest her and control her finances .

The request has been denied…

According to reports Kimberly Thompson’s request for a restraining order against Beyoncé was dismissed because Kimberly failed to show up for court.

No one from Beyonce’s camp showed up either.

OWN releases a sneak peek of the upcoming series “Chad Loves Michelle”.

According to the press release, “Chad Loves Michelle,” from Relevé Entertainment and InventTV, will feature an honest inside look at the path to marriage between Grammy award-winning singer Michelle Williams, one-third of chart-topping Destiny’s Child, and Chad Johnson, sports chaplain to professional sports organizations. Having been together for a year and never in the same city for more than seven days, the newly engaged couple is turning to intensive pre-marital counseling to help prepare them for life together as husband and wife. Both are relocating to Los Angeles from different cities in the months leading up to their wedding, but not to the same bedroom. Guided by their faith and unwavering values, the couple has vowed to consummate the relationship only after they are wed. Each episode will feature real issues the couple is tackling in their everyday lives, including Michelle’s high-profile battle with mental health issues, and the lessons they learn from the pre-marital counseling sessions that bond them stronger together.

Beyonce Can’t Shut Down ‘Feyoncé’ Merchandise

A New York federal judge on Sunday rejected a request from Beyoncé for an order shutting down a line of “Feyoncé” merchandise, ruling that the name was clearly chosen to capitalize.

According to reports, A federal judge rejected Beyoncé’s request for a permanent injunction to stop a Texas company catering to people engaged to be married from selling dozens of shirts, tank tops, hoodies and other items bearing the name “Feyoncé.”

The pop superstar complained in a lawsuit brought in April 2016 that Feyonce Inc’s sale of knockoffs infringed her trademark rights and would confuse consumers.

But in a decision issued on Monday, U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan in Manhattan said San Antonio-based Feyonce’s choice to capitalize off the “exceedingly famous” Beyoncé trademark did not mean confusion would follow.

“A rational jury might or might not conclude that the pun here is sufficient to dispel any confusion among the purchasing public,” she wrote.

Lawyers for Beyoncé did not immediately respond to requests for comment, nor did the people behind Feyoncé, Andre Maurice and Leana Lopez, who represented themselves.

Nathan said that by replacing the “B” in Beyoncé with an “F,” the defendants created a mark that sounds like “fiancé,” their core customer, in a “play on words” that could dispel confusion.

One of the Feyoncé items in dispute was a mug with the phrase “he put a ring on it,” which Beyoncé said was intended to recall the lyrics of her song “Single Ladies.”
