New York Jets Chris Johnson Talks About Being Good Friends With Lil Wayne

American football running back Chris Johnson, who currently plays for the New York Jets, recently spoke to XXL over the phone to discuss his friendship with Lil Wayne.

During the interview, Chris discussed growing up listening to the Hot Boys, listening to Tunechi when he works out, why he is a fan of Tune, being good friends with him, his top five rappers, and more.

Hit the jump to read Chris Johnson‘s interview about Weezy F Baby!

What kind of music do you bop when you’re working out?
I usually listen to Lil Wayne. I also have a record label, so I listen to my artists’ music.

What did you grow up listening to?
When I was growing up, it was Cash Money and the Hot Boys. Then they all split up, and it was Baby and Wayne. Those were the guys who stayed around. Then, Wayne came up with Young Money. But it was the Hot Boys when I was little.

Was Weezy your favorite member?
I’ve always been into Weezy.

What was it about him?
He was the youngest member, and I liked the way his music sounded.

Have you ever had a chance to meet Wayne or hang out with him?
Me and Weezy, we cool. We’re good friends.

How cool is it to be friends with someone you grew up listening to?
It’s a cool situation. I know how busy I am doing what I do, and I know he’s busy too, so I don’t try to cramp his space or hit him up too much. I check on him from time to time, he checks on me from time to time. If he’s having a concert in my city, I go to it. If I’m having a game and he’s there, he comes to the game. Over the years, we became good friends.

So who are your top five rappers?
Dead or alive, I would say Lil Wayne, Tupac, Biggie. After that, I would have to go Drake and Jay-Z.

If you had to compare yourself as a football player to any rapper, who would it be?
I would say Lil Wayne.

    Wayne’s verse in Buy the World has grown on me, the lyrics are so dope, anyone agree with me?

    • I knew it was dope on first listen.

    • MrGoHarder

      It would’ve been better if he got the outro instead of kendrick, but still a dope ass song

    • YoungJT1092

      Of course, arguably his best verse, alongside Moment, Believe Me, Thug Cry, and Senile. Those are my fav verses by him so far for 2014. I hope Tina Turnup is also as dope or doper.
