Nicki Minaj reunited with Lil Wayne on Saturday night (July 26) at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, during a stop on her "Pinkprint Tour."
During the show, Weezy popped up on stage, performing his verse from Chris Brown's "Loyal," before Nicki bowed in appreciation.
"Make some noise for the man who changed my life," she said. "Ain't nobody f*ckin' with you. I don't care how long I've been in this game. I think you are the best rapper alive."
Weezy responded, saying, "I want to agree with her, but there is a certain person by the name of Nicki Minaj who be kicking my ass."
From there, he performed "Glory," "A Milli," and "6 Foot, 7 Foot."
MTV2 recently premiered the brand new reality series, featuring Tyga, called Kingin' With Tyga.
The show offers an inside look at the life of the rap star, via a six-episode, half-hour series that follows Tyga and his crew as they attempt over-the-top stunts and indulge in a lavish lifestyle.
Kingin' With Tyga airs Fridays at 11:30/10:30c on MTV2.
While Lil Wayne has sued Birdman for money he's owed, ironically, the rapper is also being sued by another artist, who claims he's owed royalties from him.
According to TMZ.com, David Banner has filed a lawsuit against Weezy and his Young Money Records, over songs he produced for his 2008 album, Tha Carter III.
He produced the songs "La La" and "P*ssy Monster", but never received a check.
Banner says in 2012, Young Money told him he was owed over $138,000 in royalties, which is great. But afterward, he was never paid... and the label stopped returning his calls.
Also, in 2009, he produced the Young Money crew cut "Streets Is Watchin," which featured Wayne alongside his artists Jae Millz and Gudda Gudda. Banner says he was told he's owed more than $15,392.57 from that track.
Yet again, he was never paid.

Khloe Kardashian lands the August/September cover of Complex, where he strips down to flaunt her curves... and talk Kardashian business.
For the photo shoot, the youngest of the Kardashian sisters poses in bodysuits and leotards, as she works up a sweat in a faux gym setting.
In the accompanying interview, Khloe discusses a number of topics, many being about her family relationships, including the one she has with half-sister Kylie Jenner.
When asked about the 17-year-old's involvement with 25-year-old rapper Tyga, she says: "Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You're not gonna say, 'Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?' and have her say, 'Having a slumber party at my girlfriend's,' or 'Going to prom.' That's not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she's going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That's not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case."

Atlanta rapper star Young Jeezy has been on the scene since the early 2000s, but it wasn't until 2005, when he released his major label debut, Thug Motivation 101, that he officially placed his stamp on hip-hop.
If fans remember, the rapper posed in front of a wall of boxes, each one filled in stacks of dollars, for the album's cover art. Little did people know... that was all real money.
In a recent sit down with Complex, Jeezy recalls doing the photo shoot for the cover, where the art director had filled boxes of fake money to give the effect that he was surrounded by boxes of cash, earned in the streets.
But, Jeezy wasn't having it. Being that it was his introduction to the world, he wanted to make it as authentic as possible... so he had the boxes filled with real money.
"I remember the people from Def Jam, being like, 'What in the hell?' It was crazy," he recalled "But, I wanted it to be that real, because I was like, 'I can't get out here and tell these people thug motivation, and we got fake money in boxes, because now, I'm being like every other rapper.'
