After a longstanding beef – including 2016 footage of Weezy leading the crowd in shouting “fuck the Birdman”, and later “fuck Cash Money”, while on stage in Phoenix – Lil Wayne and Birdman called a truce onstage at Lil Weezyana Fest in 2018. The following year, they recorded together for a joint single, ‘Ride Dat’, with Juvenile.

Earlier this month (May 14), Weezy released an all-star single with Nicky Minaj and Drake, ‘Seeing Green’.

The track arrived as Minaj’s 2009 mixtape ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’ was placed on streaming services for the first time. Alongside that mixtape’s original tracks, several new tracks have been added – including her collaboration with Drake and Lil Wayne.

Another new song, ‘Fractions,’ also appears on the mixtape, as does her remix of Skillibeng’s ‘Crocodile Teeth.’

During an Instagram Live session before the mixtape was released, Minaj also revealed that a new album is “coming soon.” It would be her first album for four years, her last being 2018’s ‘Queen‘.

The rap star has collaborated on several tracks since her last album, including ones with Tekashi 6ix9ine on the chart-topping ‘Trollz‘, and with Mike Will Made It and YoungBoy NBA for the song ‘What That Speed Bout!?’

Close to 15% of service station in North Carolina are out of fuel, oil analyst Patrick De Haan said. Countles service station across the southeast are also out of gas. The shortages are a result of a cyberattack on a pipeline that carries 45% of the East Coast's gasoline. See more stories on Insider's business sheet.

The Colonial Pipeline cyberattack is inducing gasoline outages throughout the southeastern US and justification gasoline premiums to rise.

On Friday, the ransomware radical, DarkSide, demanded coin in exchange for releasing the pipeline it had compromised.

The pipeline is one of the largest in the country and fees from Texas to New York, transporting about 45% of the East Coast's ga, the operator said.

While operation resumed manually on segments of the pipeline on Monday, the company said it expects to restart most of the operations by the end of the coming week, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said

The attack has led to famines across several positions. In North Carolina, some service station are fitted with patrons trying to stock up on gas, while others have already perfectly run out, WJZY reported.

Tom Kloza, an adviser with Standard& Poor's Oil Price Information Service, told the Los Angeles Times that some gas stations are selling "three or four times as much gasoline that they naturally sell in a rendered day because people do panic."

Prices have been on the rise in North Carolina and across national borders in South Carolina, in some cases surging past$ 3 a gallon, WCNC reported.

AAA reported that national gas expenditures make an average of $2.98 on Tuesday, the highest standards in practically six years old.

WCNC also reported that the gas deficit is forcing airlines like American Airline to add stops to two long-haul flights that have stops in Charlotte. A flight routed from Charlotte to Honolulu( HNL) will change aircraft in Dallas Fort Worth to conserve gasoline and the other that moves from Charlotte to London will add a stop in Boston to add fuel.

North Carolina said a state of emergency as a result of the dearth on Monday, WLOS reported.

Georgia and Virginia have also testified a emergency situations, CNN reported.

Patrick De Haan, an oil reporter at Gas Buddy, reported that virtually 50% of the gas stations in Atlanta were out of gas by Tuesday night.

Former Liberty president Jerry Falwell unexpectedly showed up to a student event and invited them to a graduation party at his home

Jerry Falwell Jr liberty university Jerry Falwell Jr ., chairperson of Liberty University, awaits the newcomer of U.S. President Donald Trump to sign an executive say connecting "free speech" efforts at public universities to federal grants in the East Room at the White House in Washington, U.S ., March 21, 2019.

Liberty University entered a dispute against former President Jerry Falwell Jr. week ago. On Thursday, he evidenced up at a student contest and calls upon them to a graduation party at his home. Liberty has boycotted all staff from communicating with Falwell. See more stories on Insider's business page.

Former Liberty president Jerry Falwell Jr. indicated up at a student occasion uninvited and announced a graduation gathering at his house, a few weeks after colleges and universities indicted him, Politico reported.

"I only want to invite all the elderlies to my raise on May 8. We're going to have the real Liberty graduation, " Falwell told the students, standing on a small stage erected outside an off-campus student house, distributed according to a video reviewed by POLITICO. "If you're not a senior but you date one, you can come, too."

Two weeks ago, Liberty University registered a lawsuit in Virginia state court against Falwell alleging he misappropriation university resources and tried to conceal a relationship involving a onetime reserve boy. The University likewise censored all staff from communicating with Falwell.

The university said in the lawsuit that Falwell's years-long effort to conceal his "illicit conduct" hurt the university's reputation and breached the school code of conduct.

Politico reported that Falwell and his wife Becki showed up to a Thursday school event where around 200 students were collected unannounced and uninvited.

A student who was there told Politico that Falwell's daughter, "whos also" a student at the university, told Falwell "Please don't come."

The Falwells have been engrossed in spat including reports that he and Becki had a multi-year affair with a reserve son.

"We'd love to have you out there. Becki says there's no way we can plan it that fast, but we can and we will, " Falwell said. He likewise urged students to share party information on social media, Politico reported.

In August 2020, Giancarlo Granda told Reuters that he had a multi-year sexual relationship with Falwell and his wife Becki. Granada said he encountered the couple in Miami in 2012.

Falwell said it was only his wife who participated in the affair.

In August 2020, Falwell posted a picture of himself with his throbs unzipped, nursing an alcoholic beverage in his hand, and with his arm around the status of women at a yacht party. The photo outraged the US evangelical Christian community.

The photo too infringed Liberty's code of conduct. The university strictly compels students to dress "modestly" and also forbids students from imbibing.

Henry Ford II’s Personal Custom Capri Hits the Auction Block

Good news! We’ve determined your next auto. But before we tell you what it is, allow us to paint a picture of the conundrum that led to this Capri's customized creation.

Imagine you’re Henry Ford II, one of the stronger automotive administrations in the world. You’re pushing 65 and you’ve time married a gal nearly a quarter century your junior. You know, the one "youre calling" " Giggles"( or at least did until she held you switch to Kate ); the one you shot around Detroit while your wife Christina was jet-setting around the globe; the one who most decidedly wasn’t your partner when you two were attracted over in a Ford Granada for DWI in California in ’7 5.( When the Detroit Free Press asked you for an explanation of that little happen, you said one of your most famous quips: “Never complain, never explain.”)

Well , now you're going to England. So, what are you going to drive?

The self-evident pick would be to ship over a Mustang. After all, it’s 1981, and your company has ditched the loser Mustang II for the Fox-body Mustang. But the last time you carried cars to Europe( a sail of Lincoln Continental Mark IVs ), Volvo rent them off to create the horrid 262 C. Besides, it’s the morning of the ’8 0s, and Euro is cool.

No, what you need is a car that tells the locals that you’re still swinging in your 60 s: a Ford Capri. Although it was first introduced in 1969 as Europe’s answer to the Mustang, the Capri is still a sizzling razz in the United Kingdom--it even has a starring role in the hit-hip cop show, The Professionals. Too, the Capri is a known quantity, since your company sold it in the United Government as a Mercury( though this is the brand-new third-gen model, which never did make it to the U.S .).

No everyday Capri for you, though. After all, you’re" The Deuce"( or" Two Two", as Kate likes to call you ). Your Capri has the new 160 -hp fuel-injected 2.8 -liter V-6, the closest one can get to a V-8 in the arrive of bad weather and miserable food. It was hand-picked off the assembly line in Cologne, Germany, where it received extra quality checks and a few extra hairs for its two-tone paint job. It was delivered to the U.K ., then personally driven by Ford of Europe’s public relations chief to Ford’s Special Vehicle Engineering( SVE) squad at the Dunton Technical Centre in Essex.

Once there, the SVE team fitted the car with a C-3 automatic gearbox.( The automated was a dealer option, but the changeover was normally carried out by a third-party company called Somar Transtec .) The vehicle received new custom-designed leather sets and entrance cards, and the driver’s seat was enlarged to accommodate ... gosh, how is impossible to employed this without abusive you, Mr. Ford ... your large-hearted ministerial status. The gondola was then sent to Turville Grange, the Ford family estate in Buckinghamshire.

But you are a man of ever-changing savor, your Deuceness, and a few months after your retirement in December 1982, you sold the car to Ron Mellor, Ford’s head of development. The car changed mitts a few hours, and of the 68,958 miles on its odometer, supposedly merely 6,800 have been added over the past 28 years.

Now your Capri 2.8 Injection has been rebuilt and is for sale in an online auction hosted by Car& Classic. The auction house expects it to sell for between PS25, 000 and PS35, 000 -- that’s about $35,000 to $50,000 in U.S. greenbacks. A fleck pricey for a Capri with an automatic drive( which, you’ll recall, is a detriment now but a scarcity in the UK ), but is it crazy money for a real-live piece of Ford family history? And besides, if you’re going to get plucked over while driving booze with your mistress, then it's better to be recognise in this than a Granada.

Why a credit card is a smarter choice than a debit card

Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information.

On the outside, credit cards and debit cards look a lot alike: Both have 16 digits, expiration dates and security codes on the back.

New to The Pitches Guy? Sign up for our daily newsletter and check out our beginner's guide .

In reality, credit cards and debit cards are not the same, and there's often debate in the financial world over which type of plastic is best for the consumer. Some financial pros are firmly in the pro-debit-card( or currency) camp, but here at TPG, we believe that credit cards are a much better choice for your spending.

Related: Reasons why you shouldn’t use your debit card

In this guide, we'll break down how debit and credit cards succeed and the three reasons why I think it's better to keep your debit card in your pouch and repay with a credit card instead.

In This Post

Debit poster vs. credit cards: The machinists ( Photo by Atit Phetmuangtong/ EyeEm/ Getty Images)

Debit posters are tied to your bank account. When "youre using" your debit card to make a charge, the funds are withdrawn right away( or within a few dates) from your report. If you try to use your debit card for a purchase that costs more coin than "youve had" deposited, your bank will generally decline the transaction.

Your credit card , on the other hand, makes like a portable, resilient loan. You can borrow money( up to your credit limit ), pay it off and acquire again. You can repeat this process repeatedly as long as your accounting is open and in good standing.

As you use your credit cards through a billing cycle, your freights are tallied up on your monthly statement. It's up to you whether to pay off your part balance by the due date( strongly recommended) or to make at least the minimum pay toward the amount you owe.

Related: TPG's 10 commands for credit cards

People tend to avoid credit cards since you can get into serious financial trouble if you don't manage your account well, overspend and allow yourself to get into debt, with expensive interest rewards tacked on regularly. Recognition placard obligation should indeed be avoided, but you'll miss out on great benefits if you swear off credit cards altogether.

Here are the three reasonableness a credit card is a smarter choice than a debit card.

Ascribe placards offer better protection

Putting points and miles digression for a moment( just for a moment ), the best perk that comes from credit cards is the protection that those pieces of plastic( or metal) volunteer. When you use a credit card for your expend, it can protect you in three ways.

Credit cards protect you from drawback for fraudulent events . If you lose a card or it's stolen and someone else starts accusing on it, the federal government has your back.

The Fair Credit Billing Act( FCBA ) restriction your drawback for fraudulent business on your credit card to just $50( and most major card issuers forfeit even these duties as a matter of program ). Simply report the unauthorized transaction within 60 epoches of your statement date and you're covered.

Debit posters are protected from fraudulent deals, extremely, thanks to the Electronic Fund Transfer Act( EFTA ). However, your liability shoots up to $ 500 if you don't catch and report the problem within two business epoches. Also, the money in your bank account can be tied up while the bank probes the scam, which could be a serious problem if you have legislations coming due in the meantime.

Another credit card protection starts if there's a problem with the goods or services you bought: Your poster issuer might help you get your money back. This care is, once again, thanks to the FCBA. Imagine you required a produce but never received it. Of course, you should try to work things out with the seller first. But if the shopkeeper won't help you( it happens ), you were able to quarrel the charge with your credit card issuer.

If you'd paid for the same purchase with a debit card, your bank isn't legally obligated to make or probe legal disputes. The only type of dispute banks have to investigate under the EFTA is fraudulent accusations on your debit card.

Your credit card may also come with added benefits, including purchase protection, extended assurances, and price protection. These benefits might help you when an piece you are buying interrupts( or is lost) or when the price of an component you bought unexpectedly drops. Not every credit card offers these great benefits, but they're practically unheard of with debit cards.

Credit-building potential Someone checking their credit score on a smart phone( Photo by cnythzl/ Getty Images)

I prefer credit cards to debit card for another important reason: My placards have helped me build a health credit sketch over the years. My debit card doesn't help me improve my credit reports or ratings whatsoever.

Credit card issuers generally report accountings to all three major credit bureau -- Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. As long as you administer your reports wisely( pay them on time and in full every month ), credit cards can help you build solid credit compositions over age. The older your credit cards become with a positive payment record, the more your credit orchestrate will benefit.

Finally, I affection working my credit cards for obtains because of the rewards they volunteer. In the past six months alone, I payed and redeemed roughly $3,500 worth of free tour -- all courtesy of my rewards credit cards.

Best of all, I didn't have to devote any extra money to earn these wages. I expended my credit card to pay for buys I needed to make anyway. TPG's beginner's guide to earning phases and miles is a great place to start if you want to learn more about credit cards rewards.

If I had applied my debit card to cover my spending instead, I would have missed out on this great benefit. In general, exercising a debit card for purchases doesn't give you anything in return.

Posterior indication

When you use credit cards responsibly, they're a smarter spend alternative than a debit card -- with the major caveat of scaping credit card debt. Otherwise, the expensive interest fees you offer will wipe out the best interests of the any wages you earn.

Using a debit card( or currency) won't stop you from overspending, even though it is might restraint the damage. But, it is possible to avoid overspending with your credit cards as well.

If you're worried about charging more than you can afford to pay off on a credit cards, find a opportune way to move your spending. You can use a money management app, a tone on your telephone or even old-fashioned pen and paper to set spending aims and stick with them.

As soon as you trust yourself to use credit cards responsibly, it's time to put away your debit card and start reaping some rewards.
