Rapstar Lil Wayne popped up in a 30-minute video rant on Friday morning (October 7), courtesy of Derick G, discusses the death of Steve Jobs, which he and his homies were talking about … and his influence.

In the clip, the rapper talks about the influence Jobs had on (according to Weezy) everybody … and then talked about how he will be remembered if he died today — if he will be thought of an innovator, if people will forget how much he did for the game.

Then, Wayne gets into specific trends he had a hand in bringing to the forefront — including drinking lean, getting tattoos, getting a Bugatti, skateboarding, and everything else.

Weezy and his boys go off about how celebrities influence trends and fads … but people don’t recognize and acknowledge why you started doing it.

That’s his public service announcement.
