Lil Wayne has been making the rounds promoting his latest album, Funeral, and he has been talking about some of his mentees like Drake and Nicki Minaj.
The legendary rapper recently was asked if he would still compete with Drake on a track, and he did not hesitate and said that he would win.
The interviewer asked: “Even though Drake is your artist, he sends you a record, you still taking his head off?”
Wayne confessed: “Yeah. All day. I’m letting him know when he sends it like, make sure your mom and them don’t be listening to this.”
He also spoke about the title of the album saying: “I’ve always been the artist that’s been left field. I’ve always been whatever they want to call me, some Martian or whatever. I’ve always been that artist, and that’s just the growth of who that artist is now. I can get even darker —,, and this time we get deep and dark.”
One concerned fan told the MC: “True talent… I pray for him… he needs to get healthy… I’m not making any judgment claims on him, but we need people with REAL talent to not die on some dumb unhealthy lifestyle/ drug overdoses 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️ This man is a lyricist and a genius and an OG… someone gotta reach out to him … all love ❤️. no disrespect… but big facts.”
The person added: “Facts you are f*cking 🤡… he admits to doing hardcore drugs… lean is an opioid… I’m not judging the sinner, just the sin… you think Wayne looks healthy??!!… or you just ok with him dying?🤷♂️🤷♂️”
Another commenter called him the GOAT and thanked him for his tribute to Kobe Bryant: “Thanks for the tribute you did for him ten years ago, not after he die legend! 🐐”He’s the greatest on the court, and I’m the greatest on the verse.” That’s hip-hop. Even tho they cool or work together, and it’s your job not to let anyone out rap you. Period!”
This follower wrote: “Album is hard…its like five songs he could’ve just left off of it..and the whole album would’ve been 🔥🔥🔥🔥 I don’t like this whole “Funeral” idea you got going on nigga stop that sh*t you immortal.”
