Lil Wayne Dropped By Mountain Dew

Published

Let this be a lesson to all the rappers out there…these major corporations will not tolerate your antics! Following in the steps of Reebok, Mountain Dew has canned there rapping spokesperson due to offensive lyrics as well.

Lil Wayne has been apart of the Mountain Dew family for well over a year now, but none of that matters anymore. After rapping, “Beat that p***y up like Emmett Till” on the song “Karate Chop”, then giving the Till family a half-a**ed apology, Mountain Dew has decided to part ways with Weezy.

The PepsiCo brand stated that Lil Wayne’s, “offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand.”

So far, Wayne has not commented on the Dew dismissal but we’re sure he’s not very happy about it. Do you think Mountain Dew did the right thing?

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
