Lil Wayne Working On "Dedication" and "Tha Carter" Sequels

October 2, 2008 3:50 PM ET

Lil Wayne has returned to his ESPN blog with a massive, well-informed 1,600-word post detailing his love of Brett Favre, why his favorite team is the Green Bay Packers and not the New Orleans Saints and an in-depth look at "shoulder sprains." Not like he needs a backup plan these days, but Weezy definitely has a future in sports journalism. So who does Wayne think will win this year's World Series? "I close my eyes and I see the Tampa Bay Rays. I'm a big emotion guy. I'm a heart guy, and I think they all play that way," Lil writes, adding that they'll likely face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the finals because "You can't put nothing past Manny [Ramirez]'s bat. You cannot beat him." As for Weezy's day job, he tells sports fans that he's wrapping up Dedication 3 — his next mix tape with DJ Drama — and we can expect that "real soon." Meanwhile, the huge North Carolina Tar Heels fan is already in the studio working on Tha Carter 4.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
