Here are the scans from XXL magazine’s August/September 2014 issue, which features Lil Wayne on the front cover, an interview he did with Jeff Weiss inside the mag, and a photo shoot with Atiba Jefferson.
For the cover story, Tune spoke on his childhood, who he gets his work ethic from, the early days with Cash Money, his mother Jacida Carter, how he relates to Jay-Z’s “Lucky Me” song that he has tattooed on his body, listening to Prince, why he learned to play the guitar, authenticity in music today, 2Pac, where his head was at when recording Tha Carter and Tha Carter II, wanting to sit at the top of the Green Monster at a Boston Red Sox game, going to university just to show his kids that they have to go to school, where he sees himself in 10 years time, and plenty more.
Weezy F Baby also mentions that he first started work on Tha Carter V album when he was just 5-years-old, not remembering what he recorded in the studio last night but he does have it playing in his cars to remind him, and hints at a Tha Carter 13 album.
