First Dibs: Lil’ Wayne Apologizes for Emmett Till Lyric

Also in today’s First Dibs: Fleetwood Mac release their first EP of new material in years, MGMT introduce songs from their upcoming album, and Daft Punk could be starting a revolution by going retro.

  • Lil’ Wayne has issued an apology to the family of Emmett Till over a sexually suggestive lyric from a song released earlier this year. Epic Records pulled the verse from the track in February, but Weezy hadn’t formally apologized to the civil rights icon’s family until now. [Complex]
  • After a 10-year hiatus, Fleetwood Mac is giving us new music. The legendary band has released an EP on iTunes after testing the waters during their current tour. No word yet on whether a full-length album is on the way [Billboard]
  • With their instrument-heavy new album, are Daft Punk actually taking the long way around to change today’s dance music? [MTV]
  • MGMT played Penn State last week and gave fans a taste of what’s coming down the pike on their LP due out this summer. So far, we’re feeling it. [Rolling Stone]
