Lil Wayne Talks Young Thug, Drake & Nicki Minaj In New Interview
If you missed the news, the rap star revealed that he will reunite with his former group the Hot Boys for the first time in over 10 years at the upcoming New Orleans concert on August 28th. And, best of all, all proceeds will be donated to his hometown.
"I want it to become something that I do every year," said Weezy.
Elsewhere in the interview, he discusses Young Thug, while reminiscing about signing Drake and Nicki Minaj to Young Money. But, the big topic, his ongoing legal battle with Cash Money and Birdman, he just couldn't offer much, saying: "I can't get into it, but God bless 'em though."
On Young Thug: "When Slime came out and said I'm naming my album [Carter 6], I had to be some kind of monster to just overlook that. I'm not that type of person. My mama didn't raise me [that way]. If he said it's from the heart and he said that he's some kind of fan, then I love him. Thank you, bro. I appreciate everything about it if he's a fan."
On Nicki Minaj: "It wasn't that we was looking for [a female rapper], it was just that she was impossible to pass up."
On Drake: "When I heard Drizzy, I was like, I don't know. What I mean by that was the music was so honest. We as listeners, we weren't used to that yet. … The moment I heard him sing, I was like, ‘So who's that on this part? That's the guy that's rapping?' … I was like, ‘OK, print him up a contract. Let's go!'"
