Loose Links: Kanye West's Rants, Lil Wayne's False Covers, Jay-Z's Success

Three of the biggest acts in Hip Hop get the Loose Link treatment, complete with rants, fake album covers and big business gone bad.

From his celebrated music to his often outrageous outfit choices to even his unabashed ego, there's very little about Kanye West that isn't entertaining. But perhaps Yeezy's most entertaining moments come when he opens his mouth and says whatever comes to mind. Now, on the six-year anniversary of his infamous (and utterly awesome) Hurricane Katrina-inspired spat against George Bush, Complex put together a list of 'Ye's 10 best rants. From verbally chin-checking Canadian radio hosts to crashing nearly ever music award show stage imaginable, Kanye's antics don't get much more audacious than this.

As deep as Lil Wayne's discography already is, the list of rumored collaborative projects is utterly overwhelming. And it doesn't help that Birdman keeps tacking projects on to that list every time someone from WorldStar shoves a camera in his face. So to help Weezy F. get a head start on releasing his long-awaited LPs with the likes of T-Pain, Julez Santana and a host of other artists, Complex came up with fake album covers for each of his eight LPs on deck.

Jay-Z may be the proverbial king of the caslte in Hip Hop these days, but even Hov's made some egregious business mistakes over the years (like Memphis Bleek). So leave it to the authority on all things Hov-related Zack O'Malley Greenburg to do a bang-up job on pointing out one of Jay's biggest business flops. Greenburg deconstructs the failed 2005 Jay-Z Jeep and how Mr. Carter has since learned from that misstep.

    How is bleek a bad investment, platinum and gold is considered a failure now. How is a company deciding not to make a jayz jeep, bad business for jay. A bad deal would be if he put money into something and didn't make any maoney off it...lames, I swear, the stuff that passes for journalism is getting out of hand...

    Lil Wayne da God shouldn't even be in the same sentence as Gay-Z and the Gay fish. Two homo butt buddies piping each other like the fags they are. Weezy >>>>> ALL

      My teen-aged sister listens to Lil Wayne.... And Tha Carter IV is garbage regardless of how many albums it sells. Clean your ears out. Wayne took a shot at Jay-Z because he was salty that Hov made a comment about Birdman's lies. Half a billion? Ya...right. That's why all the Forbes reports can't seem to find the other $400 million.....Fight your own battles ladies and tell the truth. Hov & B are approaching a billion and Wayne and Baby are still making up stories.

      boy how did you get out of the cage, i'm going to have to dick smack you multiple times for you to remember not to speak again.

      see when Nas beefed with Jay Z it was good, cause their both beats, when wayne tries...its kinda sad. Jay Z gave Nas a good ass fight, Wayne is in no way comparable to Nas
