Lil Wayne Explains Why He Stopped Writing Down Music In ‘Behind The Music’

This video works for people outside of the USA as well.

In the rapper’s upcoming “Behind the Music” special, set to air September 10 on VH1, he talks openly about scrapping his rhyme books during a furious recording session, where he transformed from Cash Money‘s young sidekick to the label’s heavyweight superstar.

“The only way I won’t be able to rap anything I’ve written again is to record everything I’ve ever written before once,” he explained of what led to his now notebook-free style.

The result was a 35-minute freestyle called “10,000 Bars,” on which Wayne‘s disjointed rhymes, parts of various working songs, become a cathartic release and set the tone for his memorable mixtape run and a series of Carter albums.

“That changed Wayne as an artist,” his longtime manager, Cortez Bryant, said.

I think this is crazy how Wayne doesn’t write nothing down anymore and it just shows how great of an artist he actually is. Also, I can’t wait for this “Behind the Music” to air on 10th September.
