2007 LIL WAYNE

 

"You might know me as Weezy…But I changed my name to hip-hop." --- Lil Wayne at the second annual Ozone Awards

 

Claim to Fame:  Artistic whore 

 

This seemed to be the year of Weezy.  Without releasing a project of his own, Lil Wayne seemed to remain at the top of the rap game with ease.  How so you ask?  On the coattails of artists including Lloyd and Playaz Circle. 

 

Even as artists like 50 Cent referred to Wayne as a “whore” for his increasing number of guest appearances in ‘07, it had no impact on the emcee. “A person like 50 Cent [can] say anything about me.  You gotta understand, that’s what makes them who they are.”

 

Apparently those words had no affect on his love life either.  Heads turned when Karrine “Superhead” Steffans told media outlets that she had “learned to love” the rapper.  He in turn added grease to the fire when he told VIBE magazine, “I just love her…That’s like my big sister and homie-lover-friend.  I ain’t never found a homie-lover-friend ‘til Karrine.”

 

And the love didn’t stop there.  2007 found Weez linked with Beyone’s baby sister Solange and alleged ex boo, Lauren London after the two were spotted at the Hornets game. 

 

Still Weezy’s year was all in jest.  In July, Lil Wayne's first major gig in New York ended with a trip to jail. The arrest came just hours after Wayne made what he labeled his Big Apple debut with a raucous show at the Beacon Theatre. A New York Police Department spokesperson said that Wayne's tour bus was pulled over at around 11:30 p.m. After searching the vehicle, police arrested the rapper for criminal possession of a weapon — a .40 caliber pistol — and another man on the bus for criminal possession of marijuana.

 

Later in October, Wayne was arrested in Boise, Idaho on a felony fugitive charge issued in Georgia for allegedly possessing a controlled substance.

 

Never a dull moment with Weezy.
