Sensing that her days as a reality TV fraud might be drawing to an end, ‘Basketball Wives’ cast member, Evelyn Lozada, suckered Lil Wayne into signing her to a six-figure book and film deal.
Never mind that Lozada has no prior experience writing books or developing films (we’re talking about syrup-swigging Lil Wayne here).
According to Sports Super Groupie, Stiletto Jill,
First up for release, The Wives Association. This is the book Evelyn mentioned she was working on a few months ago. The plan is to release the book and then develop it for the “Big Screen”.
The book series to be co-authored by novelist and former Law & Order: Criminal Intent writer Courtney Parker. The books will be loosely based on Lozada’s life, using the alter ego Eve Inez-Landon to fictionalize the true stories she has learned from years of dating professional athletes. “The stories that you hear—what goes on in these relationships, and just being in that circle—I decided to let everyone experience a piece of it for themselves by writing this series of juicy novels,” Lozada said.
“By partnering with Baby and Cash Money Content, we have the potential to turn these ‘novels’ into a full-fledged brand,” Lozada explains. “Everything Baby and CMC touches turns to gold, and our brands together will be magical.”
Weezy says he will “probably never hear” Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaborative LP.
Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne was one of the biggest urban releases of the year, but it managed to pass by Lil Wayne. In his cover story for VIBE, Weezy was to-the-point about listening to the LP, claiming he’s never heard it and has no plans to do so.
“I haven’t heard the album. I’ll probably never hear the album,” he said.
He also had a few words to share about his Young Money rapstress Nicki Minaj, stating that he isn’t satisfied with anything she’s accomplished and has faith that she’ll continue to grow as an artist.
“I’m not satisfied with anything she’s done,” he said. “I believe she can do a whole lot more, and I believe she will do a whole lot more. It’s not shocking, and it’s not surprising. It’s quite fitting. But other than that, it’s nowhere near the end.”
LMAO! Wayne is a fool! He know it’s virtually impossible not to hear a WTT track however I do respect his opinion involving Nicki!
Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Keith Richards take the cover of GQ’s November 2011 issue.
Here’s what the 39-year-old rapper, who’s chronicled in a portfolio of survivors in rock, had to share:
On getting over an addiction to prescription meds: “I’m very much a creature of habit. If I’m used to waking up in the morning and having [a Red Bull],
I could do it every morning for the next ten years straight until I find something else to move on to. So if
I’m used to taking a Vicodin when I wake up in the morning because I’m hungover from -drinking or taking pills…The bigger the crowd, the bigger my habit got.”
On going to rehab in 2005: “Every addict in rehab feels like everyone’s staring at them. With me? Everyone was staring at me. I could never be comfortable. There were people there that treated me normal. Then there were a bunch of f—ing idiots who aren’t even concentrating on their own sobriety because they’re so worried about mine. They’re stealing my hats, my books – it was chaos. Everything was drama in there. And at the time, I didn’t really want to get clean. Everybody else wanted me to. And anyone will tell you: If you’re not ready, nothing is going to change you. Love, nothing.”
On getting back to who he is on Recovery: “On an emotional level, I want my music to connect with the same kid who I was. So it was like, ‘Okay, let me get serious. Because I feel like I’m being wrote off right now, and I’m kind of on my last leg.’ I felt like the underdog again.”
