Lil Wayne is now a member of the Roc Nation family. The New Orleans native broke the news during a show Tuesday night at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania.

“Is it cool if I just say it? It’s the Roc,” Wayne said. “You know I’m a member of that team now.”

After sharing the news, Wayne put up the Roc’s diamond hand sign then went back to performing for the packed out show.

Apparently he couldn’t hold the news much longer. Sources tell HipHollywood that the deal has been in the works for some time and Wayne is very excited.

Back in January, Wayne took to the stage and teased fans about his alleged union with Roc Nation, saying “When you see me, it’s YMROC.” The rapper also referenced the deal at Tyler the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Festival last year.

Weezy has wanted to work with Jay Z for years and even signed a partnership with Tidal back in 2015. This will be his first new label deal since signing with Cash Money Records when he was 15 years old.

I don’t even know where to start of how amazing the concert was last night!! #youngmoney #weezy #lilwayne #sru #rocnation

Wayne has been estranged from Cash Money Records for more than two years and is suing the label for $51 million. Meanwhile, he has not been able to drop new music including the highly anticipated album, Tha Carter V.

He told HH during our sit-down back in October that he wasn’t retiring, or giving up on recording music.


Exclusive: ‘The Oath’s Cory Hardrict, Kwame Patterson Recall Being Harassed By Cops



If you want to take an emotional, entertaining and dangerous ride through the corrupt land of law enforcement, then we suggest you tune in for The Oath.  

Delivering a unique perspective on what it means to wear the color blue, the show follows a group of police officers and their lives with badges on and off.

“With being a cop in the workforce, especially being an African American cop, when we step out there, we always want to do the right thing,” Cory Hardrict told HipHollywood. “The crazy thing about this show is we have another life as well outside of the cop world where things aren’t so perfect.”

Cory, who is expecting a baby girl very soon with his wife, Tia Mowry, continued, “When the badge comes off and we have on regular civilian clothes, we get treated like every African American harassed person out here in the world.”

Although this is just a television show, the narrative is not exactly a far cry from reality, a reality Cory Hardrict and Kwame Patterson personally know all too well. “I had one incident where he [the officer] took his blade and went to the back seat cut the back seat and sliced it … but you can’t do anything.”

Patterson added, “I’m from Baltimore, so Baltimore is one of the most corrupt police cities in the United States. So I’ve definitely dealt with police brutality, discrimination … it’s always my word against theirs.”

The new show, produced by 50 Cent, is now streaming on Crackle.
