Mack Main spoke with Rap-Up.tv on Saturday at the Cash Money Pre-Grammy Party. The Young Money president spoke of greatness to come out in 2013 with Lil Wayne‘s, Drake‘s, and Tyga‘s album dropping this year. When Rap-Up asked about, “Nothing Was The Same“, Mack Main commented, “He’s on the same pace as he always is to drop a classic. He’s like 10 songs in. Knowing him, that’s only like 4 songs, he probably won’t keep 6 of them. He’s a perfectionist though”. If you heard Drake’s last two albums, you can only expect greatness.

If your an avid user of Pandora, then you’ve probably heard Pandora’s CEO, Tim Westergen speaking to you in some of the Pandora ads about artist payments. Drake and Lil Wayne are on course to make $3 million annually because of Pandora, and many artist you may know such as Wiz Khalifa, Cold Play and many more are a little ways back making $1 million. This news is great, but read what the owner of Pandora has to say.
“It’s hard to look at these numbers and not see that internet radio presents an incredible opportunity to build a better future for artists. Not only is it bringing tens of millions of listeners back to music, across hundreds of genres, but it is also enabling musicians to earn a living. It’s also hard to look at these numbers, knowing Pandora accounts for just 6.5% of radio listening in the U.S., and not come away thinking something is wrong”, says Tim.

Lil Wayne thinks the late Aaliyah’s music is better than a lot of music out today — and he’s confident that Drake’s plan to produce unreleased Aaliyah songs will be an “awesome collaboration.”
Missy Elliott and Timbaland, who produced most of Aaliyah’s music, are not involved, and DMX, who co-starred with Aaliyah in the movie “Romeo Must Die” and recorded a song with her, has been critical of the project.
Lil Wayne said he hasn’t heard any negative feedback, and added when he first heard that his Young Money protégé was a part of the project, his first thought was: “Good move.”
“Everybody knows what Aaliyah did and done for music and culture, period, and it’s always good to do that, for not only for people like that, just for her fans — you know what I mean?” he said in a recent interview. “Drake’s a very thoughtful person. Everyone knows that. It’s an awesome collaboration. Her music is still awesome. It’s still better than a lot of music out right now,” he said.
Do you agree with what Lil Wayne said about Aaliyah’s music, and how do you feel about Drake’s Aaliyah album?
