Lil Wayne to Play House of Blues on June 16
I'll post Lil Wayne's incendiary anti-Bush song, "Georgia Bush," any chance I get, as most people don't know one of the best protest songs of the 21st century. Released as the last track on DJ Drama and Lil Wayne's Dedication 2 mixtape that dropped in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Weezy, a New Orleans native, set his fury to tape.
Ever the iconoclast, Wayne's new Tha Carter III finally leaked, and it's on its way to the store shelves and digital portals as we speak. It's officially out next Tuesday, June 10, and though the nation's hip hop community may be pumped, at least one Philadelphian isn't.
