Lil Wayne Goes A Rockin'

Lil Wayne will reportedly release his next album, Rebirth, on April 7th. And as evidenced by the album’s first single “Prom Queen,” the album will feature Weezy’s “rebirth” as a rock & roll star. Lil Wayne’s publicist told MTV News that the new LP will indeed be a “rock album,” and that the record has nothing to do with the Tha Carter III: The Rebirth release Wayne was plotting in late 2008.
We knew Weezy had the desire to go rocker, from his collaboration with Kevin Rudolf on “Let It Rock” to Wayne’s guitar antics with Kid Rock at this year’s Country Music Awards to his six-string noodling during concerts, so this next step in the rapper’s artistic evolution seems strangely natural. Rebirth will be the rapper’s first official release since Tha Carter III sold more than a million copies in its debut week last year. With an album so potentially polarizing, however, it seems unlikely that Weezy will repeat the feat.
Now you’re probably saying to yourself, “There’s no way this is actually happening,” but Wayne’s new single ‘Prom Queen’ leaked last week, so this must be reality. The song features Wayne and his Auto Tune singing over a bed of guitars instead of a standard rap beat. In a way, this LP seems like it’ll echo Kanye West’s genre-bending 808s & Heartbreak, with a renowned rapper “singing.” Unfortunately, on “Prom Queen” as least, what makes the song unique is also what almost ruins it, as the background rock music on the single sounds like Limp Bizkit effortlessly recorded it in 1996. Weezy is still scheduled to perform at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony, so it’ll be interesting to find out if the rapper will bust out “A Milli” or a guitar.

Sniping Strath
Strath may be located in the plush sides of Nairobi, and the dudes may be considered to have elephants in their wallets – but not so for some three dudes who were busted by Tha Sniper at the Prestige Plaza recently. Let’s just say the dudes made Strath look cheaper than Ukwala on a 50% off clearance day!

How Do You Get A Boy To Notice You Without Scaring Him Off?
There are some really desperate chiquittaz out there. Check out the question posted to our resident Chic Advice Guy, Ed, by a rather confused gal…

Hi Ed,
I’m a bit concerned about my love life, especially since I’m ingiaing 3rd form and I don’t have a boyfie. Now, you know 1st Term is the time to hook up and there’s this really hot looking dude who I have a crush on. Don’t get me wrong, am a fly mamasita (don’t take my word for it though, I will have you know that I was 2nd Runners Up at our school beauty pageant last year. I will probably win it this year since the 404’s are long gone…). My problem is; this jamaa is in high demand! The chase is on to get him and I want to be ahead of the competition. Problem is; how do I get him to notice me without freaking him out? Please help!
Totally Freaked Out Chiquitta

Right, hold on there; don't show him your cleavage just yet. There may be a better way.
Dudes don't get freaked out or scared off that easily. Not unless you're mental, obsessive or really hairy like a monkey residing in Changez (yes, I said it! So what? I was in Patch!) ... to read the entire response, you'll simply have to buy a copy of your favourite addiction, The Insyder.
