Did you miss the Lil' Wayne reality show auditions on Saturday, for Lil's new show Making the Next Hit? Have you spent your days cursing your misfortune, sure that you're the next big singer, rapper, producer or model? Curse no more!
Since the auditions were moved at the last minute from the Courtyard Marriott to the Holiday Inn, seems a lot of folks missed out. But Lil' Wayne doesn't want anyone to suffer, so they're having another round of Dallas auditions this Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Wyndam Dallas Park Central (8051 Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway.) If you have some sweet beats and/or rhymes and/or ass to share with host Chief Rocker Busy Bee -- who will be here on Thursday, so if nothing else you can meet an honest-ta-God rap pioneer -- RSVP for the auditions by e-mailing here. To get you in the mood, after the jump is some audio from Busy Bee's legendary rap showdown with Kool Moe Dee from 1982.--Andrea Grimes
