There’s a lot of love between Odd Future and Lil Wayne. While Weezy recently expressed his admiration for the collective during a recent chat with MTV, crew frontman Tyler The Creator also offered some kind words for the hip-hop superstar.
So, it seems the feeling is mutual.
“Wayne’s cool. I ran into him at my hangout back home, and he’s just cool,” Tyler told MTV recently. “I wanted to kinda fan out and sh**. But he gave me a speech about how happy he was that I won a VMA and that seeing my mom go crazy kinda made him feel like he won it too, because that sh** was real as f***. He sat there for three minutes giving me a speech and I was like ‘I just wanted to say The Drought 3 was my sh**.’ I couldn’t ’cause he was sitting there like ‘Yo, I love everything you do. That [VMA] sh** almost made me cry.’ It was awesome.”
Aside from the mutual love and respect for each other, Tyler said that he’d love to work with Wayne in the near future … and revealed that he’s got a beat stashed for Weezy, but just has to muster up the courage to ask him to hop on it.
“I actually have this beat that I want him on, but I was too scared to get it to Clancy [his manager] to get it to them, but Wayne’s cool,” said Tyler.
Tyler is probably just being a little shy, because Wayne’s isn’t the type to give shoutouts if he isn’t interested in working with the person. So, it’s likely a Odd Future x Lil Wayne collaboration will be forthcoming.
