Dude Kinda Looks Like A Lady
Will he? Won’t he? Who knows. In recent days Steven Tyler has said he is quitting Aerosmith and now he isn’t. What is going on? Well awhile ago Joe Perry said they were going to look for replacements if Tyler did leave the band. That got me to thinking… who in the hip hop world could replace Steven Tyler? Here are my top 5 candidates.

Lil Wayne and Baby Laughing it Up
Yes, more Lil Wayne news to share. It seems like this guy is everywhere. Totally unavoidable. Anyway, over the weekend Lil Wayne released his No Ceilings mixtape to the world. Although the album leaked a couple days early, Wayne insisted it wasn’t finished and the real version would be released on it’s intended date of Halloween.
I downloaded the leaked version and have also downloaded the real version. It seems to me that Wayne was buffing because the mixtapes are extremely similar. Just a few different tracks.
Lil Wayne and Kanye West at the Grammys
This past week and weekend two of hip hop’s biggest acts faced the law. Both Lil Wayne and Kanye West faced the long arm of law steaming altercations in the past couple of years.
Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to gun possession chargers in a Manhattan on Thursday October 22nd. As part of this peal deal Wayne will be headed to prison for one year, but could only be locked up for about eight to ten months assuming he behaves well.
Kanye West was also in court, but not on gun chargers. In 2008 Kanye put the beat down on a paparazzi and his camera while attempting to leave the airport.
