Lil Wayne put the celebration on hold to pay tribute to the great Whitney Houston at Cash Money’s Pre-Grammy Party at Paramount Studios in Hollywood on Saturday night. Following a moment of silence led by actress Taraji P. Henson, Weezy told his guests, “Can we all just give at least a few seconds, a moment of silence for Ms. Whitney Houston? … Thank you.”
With the rest of his YMCMB crew including Drake, Tyga, Birdman, Busta Rhymes, and Shanell onstage, he also acknowledged Christina Milian’s addition to the YMCMB family. “I got the beautiful Ms. Christina Milian with me tonight,” said Weezy. “Ya’ll make some noise for Ms. Christina Milian. Young Money Christina Milian!”
After he and Drake were presented with plaques, Tunechi delivered a rap that raised eyebrows. “I met a bad redbone, I took the bitch home, I asked her what she want to watch, she said surely not The Throne.”
And with that, he dropped the mic and walked offstage.
