How much would you pay for a notebook full of unreleased lyrics by Lil’ Wayne from the 1999 Cash Money days? A guy who claims to have one of Lil’ Wayne’s old notebooks full of raps Lil’ Wayne wrote is attempting to auction off the “book of rhymes” for $250,000. The only problem is that Wayne says the book is still his property.
Tmz (@tmz) reported that the story goes something like this….The unidentified man says that he found the notebook full of raps Wayne wrote in 1999 inside of a car he purchased that once belonged to Cash Money Records. Finders keepers right? Wrong. Wayne’s lawyers said the book was misplaced and is happy that it has now been found, but it’s still Wayne’s property. Wayne’s lawyers say the guy “absconded with the notebook” and hid it for years while waiting for the perfect time to cash in on his treasure.
The book is being sold by Moments In Time auction-house. Moments In Times’ owner, Gary Zimet says the “finders keepers” rule definitely applies. He says if Wayne wants his book back, he will have to buy it just like any other person who wants the book would have to. Wayne is threatening to sue Moments In Time if they attempt to move forward with the auction.
50 Cent, Tekashi69, and a few other big names in rap found themselves in harm’s way when someone drove by the set of the video they were filming in Brooklyn, and licked off at least 11 shots before they sped off and disappeared into the night.
TMZ (@tmz) reported, the shooting happened around 10:30 pm in Brooklyn as the rappers were filming a video. Rappers Casanova and Uncle Murda were also on set to make an appearance in the video. A white Porsche that allegedly had New Jersey license plates rolled up, and at least one shooter began letting off shots from the vehicle. No one was hit in the shooting. Police found at least 11 shell casings at the scene and said the shooter likely used a 9mm semi-automatic in the shooting. Police are reviewing surveillance video from the scene. So far, there are no suspects or motives. No word on if one of the rappers were the target of the shooter, or someone else at the video shoot.

Group leadman and sometime reality star, Jim Jones has recently found himself in some trouble with the law. TMZ (@tmz) reported, Jimmy was a passenger in the backseat of a car that was involved in a brief high-speed chase. The car crashed into a deputy’s car before it was brought to a stop. Even worse, when the car was seached police found 2 loaded pistols, an undisclosed amount of weed, Percs, Oxys, Vape Cartridges, THC oil, and of course cash. Jones told “5-0” the money was just “petty cash.”
One of the guns were reportedly stolen. Nobody in the car admitted to being the person in possession of the weapons, which made the charge everyone’s. Jones told police the Oxy and Percs were his. He had a prescription for those. Jones, who was a backseat passenger said running from the po-po was not his call. The driver made that decision on her own even though he protested. All passengers also shared possession of drug paraphernalia charges since no one wanted to claim that either.
Jones was charged with possession of the stolen gun, possession of a firearm in commission of a crime (running from the po-po), and possession of narcotics. All felony charges. Jimmy caught an added misdemeanor charge for not carrying his prescription pills in their original bottle. Jones was arrested and released on $7000 bond. I wonder what Cam is doing? Hopefully it ain’t got nothing to do with guns.
