Lil Wayne has been making headlines with his controversy around the Super Bowl 50 commercial he stars in, but the good news is that he is being honored for his tech lyrics and has finally won a victory with one of his 10-plus lawsuits.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Lil Wayne has been involved in several lawsuits besides his $51 million lawsuit with Birdman/Cash Money Records. However, SOHH reports that there has been a break in the clouds in Lil Wayne’s legal battles, and there is now $120,000 less that he will pay out.
Other good news is that Lil Wayne is being honored for including tech in his lyrics. Only one of a few to do so, while other rappers listed had one song highlighted — Lil Wayne had two included in the list. Along with “Let The Beat Build,” “Bill Gates” was another tech-laden song, according to BGR.
Interestingly, Lil Wayne was recently mentioned in a beef between Bill Gates and Snoop Dogg, according to Clapway. In it, they said that Snoop Dogg coming out against XBox outages on social media could turn into a nightmare for Bill Gates and Microsoft if celebrities like Lil Wayne joined up with public complaints against them.
Of course, Bill Gates will know if Lil Wayne has a problem with him if Lil Tunechi makes a song about how he feels like Shuhei Yoshida (President of Sony’s Computer Entertainment/PS4 branch).
In addition, Lil Wayne has a couple of odd irons in the fire at the first of February, and one is a controversy about alleged racist themes in his Super Bowl 50 commercial for the Apartments website.
In it, Lil Wayne is making food for himself and President George Washington, but some fans thought that a person assumed to be of Black descent preparing food for an affirmed former slave owner like Washington was a form of “low-key racism,” according to E! Online.
Despite the controversy, according to BTN, Lil Wayne took time out of his busy Dedication touring schedule to give a hearty congratulations to the signing class of the Michigan Wolverines. In the video, Lil Wayne states that they “could not have picked a better place.”

Sports Illustrated added to this and stated that getting a congratulations from Lil Wayne after “Michigan took National Signing Day to a new level on Wednesday with its ‘Signing of the Stars’ event.”
This means Lil Wayne was one of a list of celebrities that made a featured appearance at the Michigan Wolverines event, which also included Tom Brady, Derek Jeter and Ric Flair, Migos and Jim Harbaugh.
Sadly, Lil Wayne is being singled out at the moment by Meagan Good, star of Preacher’s Wife, who wants the media to know that she did not sleep with Lil Wayne, according to BET.
This follows on the heels of a Lil Wayne ex, Karrine Steffans, who got married “in secret” to Columbus Short in mid-January, according to Bossip.
Regardless of the headlines with current or rumored ex-girlfriends, Lil Wayne named as one of the people that will launch the career of a new rapper. According to Design and Trend, Lil Wayne is one of the reasons that Jacquees may be the next celebrity.
In spite of this, their reasoning that Lil Wayne will make Jacquees famous by their joint association with Cash Money Records could be disputed considering Lil Tunechi’s poor relationship with his record label.
In other music news, Lil Wayne released a new track from producer, Streetrunner, on January 28 that was actually recorded in 2006. The Source reviews “Cry Out (Amen)” and writes the following.
“Wearing his heart on his sleeve as he lets his emotions spill uncontrollably, Lil Wayne swallows his pride and bears his soul on the mixed and mastered version of his passionate tearjerker ‘Cry Out (Amen),’ which has finally been liberated by its producer Streetrunner in honor of the tenth-anniversary of a rough and unfinished version leaking online an entire decade ago.”
