Rappers really need to watch what they say these days because their endorsement deals are getting snatched! Reebok dropped Rick Ross for his rape rap lyrics, recently and now, according to the Huffington Post, Pepsi is done with Lil Wayne! They are cutting him after his "crude reference" to civil rights martyr Emmett Till in the Karate Chop remix. Pepso said Lil Wayne's "offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand." I wonder how much money he lost with that one?
Meanwhile, one thing he can celebrate is the launch of his new footbwear! He launched SPECTRE, which will be for the skateboard culture, like his Trukfit brand of clothes. The shoe will be available in stores May 18.
Robin Thicke decided that was a wrap for him on BET's Real Husbands of Hollywood. Since that announcement, comedian Chris Rock has been added to the cast. But now we are hearing Bobby Brown will also be part of the show! LaLa Anthony, who will be in an episode of season two, Instagrammed a picture of her, Bobby Brown and JB Smoove, with the caption "On set with Bobby Brown...#RHOH." And why not? Bobby Brown was in the original skits BET aired during their awards show a few years back.

Sources close to Wayne tell TMZ that the rapper was taken to Cedars-Sinai in L.A. late Tuesday night by his bodyguards. TMZ reports he suffered a single seizure and was treated and released early this morning.
As TMZ first reported, 30-year-old Lil Wayne spent a week at Cedars back in March after suffering multiple severe seizures that nearly killed him. He spent 6 days in ICU.
Wayne subsequently went on the radio and explained he's an epileptic, and has been suffering from seizures since he was a kid.
