MTV2’s Red, Wild ‘N Blue Weekend is about to kick off and will feature the premieres of two shows, Wild N’ Out and Ain’t That America, starring Nick Cannon and Lil Duval, respectively. Over the holiday weekend, Nick and Duval will be chiming in with the “Summer News.”

Back in June, Lil Wayne and Supra announced that they would be partnering to create a line of sneakers. Weezy’s line of kicks won’t be officially launched until 2013, but the “No Worries” rapper is already sharing  his design flare to the brand. 

An impending lawsuit is threatening to block the release of the Game’s long delayed R.E.D. album.
