While Lil Wayne has been out in the field promoting his new joint project with 2 Chainz, he still finds the time to film a video for the track “Cross Me” off his last mixtape No Ceilings 2. The track features two Hip Hop Heavyweights, Future and Yo Gotti. Future crushes the chorus while Weezy and Gotti exchange bars about disloyal people.

Earlier this week the Hip Hop community took a huge loss with the passing of legendary Queens emcee Phife Dawg. Phife, a founding member of the super group A Tribe Called Quest, passed away due to complications stemming from his diabetes. The entire Hip Hop community came together to mourn it’s loss once the news got out about Phife’s passing. Several artists decided to embrace the loss and take those feelings out in the studio, paying tribute to the gone-too-soon emcee.
One artist in particular was Pittsburgh’s Wiz Khalifa. Wiz, who can probably partially credit his laid back flow to Phife, has recently released a remix of A Tribe Called Quest’s classic, “Electric Relaxation.” Listen to the Steel City native’s version of the Hip Hop classic cut below. Also take note that Wiz is actually the second Pittsburgh emcee this week to pay tribute to Phife. Former label mate and frequent collaborator Mac Miller dropped a Larry Fisherman tribute the very same day of Phife’s passing. You can also vibe to the Mac Miller tribute further below.
Wu Tang affiliate Andre Roxx has filed a lawsuit against all news outlets that had falsely reported that he had cut his own penis off and attempted suicide. In 2014 a reporting error was made and Marques Johnson aka Andre Roxx suffered as a result. His name and image was tarnished as reports spread that he had castrated himself and attempted suicide. Roxx’ identity was mistaken and actually confused with another Wu Tang affiliate by the name of Christ Bearer, legal name “Andre Johnson.”
News outlets from TMZ to USA Today falsely reported the story and used Andre Roxx name and image. This all occurred while Andre Roxx was serving time behind bars and had no way to clear his name. The Roundtable Empire caught up with Roxx today to speak about the importance of his current lawsuit. “I have spent the better part of my life building a reputation as an artist. It is not perfect but everything it holds good and bad I had earned, until this story broke. I have no problems paying for my own sins but the sins of others is too heavy a weight. I want the name I earned back, nothing more, nothing less,” said Andre Roxx.
Stay tuned to The Roundtable Empire for further developments of this story…
