Ten Best Music-Related Things to Do in Miami This Weekend Under $10
We heard about Lil Wayne begging Drake to squash the beef between him and Chris Brown earlier this week, but there's still no word as to whether or not Drizzy's extended an olive branch.
Needless to say, if the New York City scuffle's really affecting Young Money's business that bad, the crew should rejoice in the fact that they're based in Miami, a city with plenty of budget balling options.
