Carter V season continues. Last week, Lil Wayne previewed his freestyle “Tina Turn Up Needs a Tune Up.” And this week it’s all about the side chicks.

In episode 14 of Weezy Wednesdays, the Young Money captain explains the difference between a regular girl and a “Side Bitch.” He then pushes play on a new song inspired by his relationships.

“I can’t wait until she my bitch / ‘Cause right now, I’m just her side bitch / She gotta ni**a she can ride with,” he raps. “Lord, I’m so tired of being her side bitch.”

The DJ Scoob Doo-directed clip ends with a contract, which outlines the terms of being a side chick.

Lil Wayne Defends Lil Twist, Says ‘F**k You’ to Scooter Braun

Lil Twist and Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne is coming to Lil Twist’s defense. The Young Money chief has some words for Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun.

Twist’s friendship with Bieber ended after he was removed from the teen superstar’s home following a series of run-ins with the law. He was portrayed as being a bad influence on Bieber, but Wayne won’t let him take the fall.

In a video shot by DJ Scoob Doo last night (via MTV News), Weezy delivers some scathing words directed at Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, whom he deems responsible for tarnishing Twist’s name.

“I heard this bitchass ni**a Scooter talkin’ shit about my little brother,” says Weezy as he exits his private jet with his arm around Twist.

“Ni**a, this my motherfu**in’ brother, anything you got to say, when you see me say it to my motherfu**in’ face,” says Wayne. “And if you do happen to say it to my motherfu**in’ face, I ain’t gonna make you eat them words ni**a, I’ma put them bitches on your tombstone.”

He ends the threatening clip by saying, “Fu*k you Scooter!”

In November, Twist publicly accused Scooter of planting stories to make him look bad and uphold Bieber’s “squeaky clean” image.

Watch Weezy’s words for Scooter below.
