Lil Wayne Covers VIBE Magazines October-November Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of VIBE Magazine‘s October/November issue, which will hit newsstands soon. You can read some excerpts from Weezy‘s interview in the magazine here (talks about maybe doing a collabo project with Rick Ross) and here (speaks on dissing Jay-Z). Below, you can read a couple more parts from his interview were he talks about looking at Drake as competition and if hip hop influenced the riots in England back in August.

VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?

LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not just a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.

VIBE: Given that Cash Money artist Jay Sean is a native of the U.K., you probably have some strong feelings about the London riots and how some talking heads blamed it on hip-hop culture.

LIL WAYNE: All you could do is pray for the people that were dealing with the situation and hope for the best. As far as them blaming hip-hop, you can blame Jesus for things, so you can’t really fault anybody for blaming someone or something. All you can do is hope for the best.
