Leaked tracks from Eminem's Recovery album continue to surface online, despite its official release date still being two weeks away. That sucks for Eminem.

Or does it? Conventional wisdom suggests leaks hinder sales, but Em's new songs and collaborations with Rihanna, Lil Wayne and others are drawing raves.

Lil Wayne may be in prison, but he hasn't forgotten the people who gave him the privileged lifestyle he abused and wasted to land him in there.

He'd better just hope his three meals a day include virus protection ... as in computer style. He's launched a weekly blog for his fans from jail!

After sentencing in his illegal weapons case was postponed by massive dental work and later a courthouse fire, Lil Wayne was finally taken into custody Monday.

If Lil Wayne thinks arson is the way to delay his prison term, he's probably wasting his efforts. You're gonna have to do the time at some point, dawg!

Just kidding. He had nothing to do with it, but you have to admit, it's pretty funny that Lil Wayne's trip to prison has been delayed a second time now.

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
