Lil Wayne Talks The Hot Boys, Relationship With Birdman, Creative Style, Young Money & More

Lil Wayne Talks Thinking He Would Retire With The Hot Boys, His Creative Style, Young Money & More

I have just come across a Lil Wayne interview online that took place at the Wize & Ope flagship store in Paris, France back in October, 2013. Even though this interview is not exactly “new”, I am posting it because I don’t believe I’ve seen the full version posted online anywhere before and especially not here on LilWayneHQ!

During the interview, Tune speaks on how he feels to see his Young Money artists be more than what he expected, always thinking that he would be in the Hot Boys group forever until he retired, the first time he realized he had a gift at rapping, his very first rhyme, being a great father, his stylist Marisa Flores, what his definition of a “clique” is, why he doesn’t write down his lyrics, meeting Cortez Bryant, his relationship with Birdman, partnering up with Wize & Ope, and more.

“I think when you write something down you become restricted, you’re focused on what your writing and therefore you can always write the same things, and you fall into the same pattern. Whereas if you do it from your head then everyday you wake up different.”

The interview seemed to get pretty awkward towards the end, but it was funny when the guy interviewing Weezy called the Hot Boys the “Lost Boys”. Tunechi also mentioned in the interview that if he ever stopped rapping it would be to make more kids!

Video: Lil Wayne May Not Retire From Music Anytime Soon

During a radio interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez in March, Lil Wayne said he’s walking away at 35. Then Weezy switched up, telling XXL that he would be gone by 31. Now Lil Tunechi tells MTV that he isn’t sure when exactly he will walk away from rap.

“I’m not sure; I’m not gonna Brett Favre y’all,” Wayne said referring to the former Green Bay Packers quarterback who finally handed the NFL his walking papers in January after years of talking about it. “I’m not gonna draw it all the way out the whole year: ‘We wondering, is Wayne gonna do this?’ But the honest answer is I don’t know.”

“I’m so settled in my life right now,” he told us. “I have my kids; they’re wonderful. My daughter has her career ahead of her now. I have to focus on that, and I have to put the same focus that I put in my career. … I want to become a better father, I want to become a better man to my woman, and those things take time. and time takes away from this. So the honest answer to that retirement question is, I don’t know. Maybe so.”
