Young Roddy Calls Lil Wayne The Greatest New Orleans Rapper Of All Time

Young Roddy recently visited the watchLOUD office for an interview about who he thinks is the greatest rapper of all time to come out of New Orleans, Lil Wayne and Curren$y collaborating, the legacy of Soulja Slim, and more.

The Jet Life artist revealed in the conversation that he thinks Weezy is the greatest N.O. rapper of all time and his reason’s why are because he has been so consistent and relevant for decades since he first got in the hip-hop game as a teenager.

You can check out what Roddy said about Tunechi after the jump below!

Who would you say is the greatest rapper to ever come out of New Orleans?
Man… to ever come out of New Orleans? Alright I have a reason for this one. I’d have to roll with Wayne, man. The reason behind it is that he’s been doing it for so long and he’s been consistent and relevant since he got in the game. And that’s hard to do. One day you’re here, the next day you’re gone, so for you to stay consistent all those years, decades? I salute, tip my hat.

Nobody ever done it, even though he had a head start, starting when he was a teenager, a kid, but he’s still doing it. That’s not an easy job. So I’d roll with Wayne. We got a lot of greats, man.

It’s cool to see Curren$y and Wayne reuniting again after the Cash Money situation.
That’s always a good look. This how I feel – this rap is like a brotherhood. There’s no need for beef or nothing like that because we all got the same common goal, to make good music and be successful at it. Especially when we’re from the same city, same state. We’re all we have, you gotta support each other. So I like to see that myself. Give something to the youth, stick together. Teamwork make the dream work.

It was just the 12th anniversary of Soulja Slim’s death the other week. Talk about Slim’s legacy in New Orleans.
I’d say Wayne was the best, but Soulja Slim had the biggest impact. He actually had the whole New Orleans behind him, and that’s tough to do. That’s not really a friendly spot. So for the whole city to support you and be behind you, that’s big man. He was up there too with the greats. Rest in peace Soulja Slim.

    nat_kingcold ..follow me doggie

  • Nathaniel Diaz

    I don’t give a fuck, if I do its fuck you!
    Runnin thru these “hoes”(holes) like Maurice jones drew!

  • Mpho Ngqenga

    Lil Wayne is already a legend if he ever leaves, as he has once told us.

  • Nathaniel Diaz

    Aight my Gz wats your fave wayne verse/track through the different eras if we break it up like:
    1. Hot Boyz era
    2. Sqad Up era
    3. C1 era
    4. C2 era
    5. LFLS era
    6. Can’t feel my face era
    7. All the leaks era (fake droughts late 07)
    8. Carter 3 era
    9. Auto tune young money birth era (right after C3 to about June ’09 when steady mobbin sropped)
    10. Pre jail era
    Kinda sloppy with the eras but suck it lol

    • La Raza(C5)

      C2 era definitley

    • Linguistics of TopTrax

      U dont understand how hard of a question that is. Its very hard to tell when a wayne track was recorded..thats why no one has responded..its a lottt of thinking first of all and secondly waynes always recording and they hold trax for years before releasing them so its extremly difficult question i may get back to u some time on it tho, cuz im the only one crazy enough to attempt to answer it..lol

      • Nathaniel Diaz

        Yea I was thinking the same thing bro. When you hear the song is prolly not in the era it was created. It’s just way too hard to do that with waynes catalog plus the fact he switched his style up so many different times. To me all that adds to the spectacle thst wayne is tho

  • Yo

    First time I heard Lil B rapping on Grove St Party I thought he was having a brain anneurism

    • Linguistics of TopTrax

      He fucked up that pretty great track..i hate him, and am very upset wayne let him ruin the track..

  • Nathaniel Diaz

    If I could I’d wear beanies n skullies before either

  • Nathaniel Diaz

    N my windows lightly cracked

  • Nathaniel Diaz

    The song “make way” wit birdman n fat joe. He’s got a verse out of 2 using alot of the Jamaican accent n flow. Shit hard too

  • Nathaniel Diaz

    N then play the guitar at the fuckin funeral!

  • savage813

    Ayee Wayne Bitch Im FUCKED UPP Bout Dat Jumpman Bitch U Murked Dat Fucka !!!!

    • La Raza(C5)

        • Young Boruto ✔

          I agree with this 100% idk why he feels he needs auto tune his normal voice sounds better

          • Very true…I wish there was a way fans could tell him this . how did people request for that Jumpman wayne track????

            • Young Boruto ✔

              I think they did on his Facebook which ever song got the most likes at that time he did it

      Backwards compatibility is playing old games on the xboxone & ps4

      • King Slime

        Ohhhh, Why would I want to play old games?? I mean aren’t the good ps3 games already available for ps4?

        • Young Boruto ✔

          No you have to buy them again meanwhile xboxone it’s free …but ultimately backwards compatibility is only for players crossing over to get the new consoles or just wanna play them on the new consoles

  • Linguistics of TopTrax

    Older players…i play the ps1 still for the memories and if u know the right games they arnt that bad for being “old”

    • King Slime

      Ps1? You broke af, fuck playing for memories, play to win fuck nigga and for fun, memories are for the birds, pigeoned toed

  • King Slime

    Because he literally makes a list of EVERY wayne song ? And then proceeds to see how long he raps for in each song ? If thats what a fan is, then I’m far from a fan

    • Linguistics of TopTrax
