Damian Lillard Speaks On Lil Wayne Recording Process, Run It Up & More

Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A. recently sat down with HotNewHipHop for a one on one interview to chat all about his new single “Run It Up” featuring Lil Wayne.

The NBA player and rapper revealed “Run It Up” is probably the best song he has released to date, as well as what he learned from being in the studio with Weezy.

Dame also spoke on Tunechi‘s recording process, Birdman clearing the feature, and told a story of Tune coming up with a hook idea while a beat played in the studio!

        wayne hasnt used them since they gave him low quality remade beats for d5

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          But he used some of their beats for NC2

        • WeezyIsTheGOATDontAtMe

          You’re unreliable

    • fewcha

      no they arent reliable

  • Winged Dragon Of JT

    Well, its times like these I’m proud to be a Wayne fan..so remember how I said I lost all my music due via iPhone upgrade? Well of course I’m now on a rediscovery mission which will take forever….but! I have almost all my old Wayne music thanks to him being the underground King, primarily I was worried about the top tiers of my collection like DD3, D2, Blow, NC1 and the C3 sessions- all restored via music app. Also…I have an unopened collection of Tha Carter albums and Lights Out and 500 Degreez. God is good, I’m like halfway out the woods- where Lil Wayne music is concerned, lol.😭😭

    • WeezyLEF

      Nobody cares bro

      • Mula baby 💰👶

        Lmao tbh

        • Winged Dragon Of JT

          He’s truly a hoe. This man stay swinging on my nuts on a daily, and really think everyone respek him. C’mon you cant tell me I’m wrong

          • Mula baby 💰👶

            I don’t even know tbh

          • Khosta The Tormentor

            Weezylef a clown

            • WeezyLEF

              Kinda ironic coming from you 🤔

          • WeezyLEF

            Bro why are you so emotional? 😂😂 Also, you sound more and more sus every day tbh

            • Winged Dragon Of JT

              Boiii if you dont…pause, strangely enough you always cop out like a bitch every time I respond to you and use this “emotional” defense without fail….which brings the logical question: why you so focused on niggas emotions? You seem to make a whole topic about it quite a lot. Maybe you can pull your heart out your ass and answer that without using emotions?

              • WeezyLEF

                Because you are emotional. You do get triggered. Get out of your feelings. Every time I “cop out like a bitch” and every time you take the bait lol Don’t be so sensitive on the internet, nobody will give a fuck

          • WeezyLEF

            HQ OGs like Tuned, Realshitboi, #1Stunna, 1017Blood, Weezy504, CarterBoy etc. ain’t got a problem with me so I don’t even bother trolling them. You newer guys think you’re going to get away with saying dumb shit all the time, I would be doing something wrong if I was getting your approval lol

            • Winged Dragon Of JT

              Oh hell no, just leave nigga, I’ve been here since 2013. And with that, you’re fired (Trump voice). Outtie.

              • WeezyLEF

                In 2013 you were 9 years old, it doesn’t count lol

      • Winged Dragon Of JT

        No bitch. You dont care, and I’m not here for your shit today. I’m in crisis mode. Away with you🖕🏾

        • WeezyLEF

          Oh shit, he’s hurt 😂😂

    • leyton

      I care

      • Winged Dragon Of JT

        Real nigga salute

    • Khosta The Tormentor

      I care too cuh

      • Winged Dragon Of JT

        Gangtsa shit son💯

  • Winged Dragon Of JT

    Also, tell me more Wayne projects I need to redownload. My app wont let me get the W. Carter Collections- which bites ass fr, given those are diamond projects to me personally….but yeah, I got the Dedications, most of the Drought Is Over season songs, DaDrought 1 ( lemme get an amen for that project being available). I wasnt able to find DaDrought 2 on my app, so I meed some direction with some. Help me out LWHQ fam, and let make my music library great again.💯

    • Winged Dragon Of JT

      Update: I found the following: .LilWeezyAna Vol.1, FWA, S4TW2, TWayne and MFCBF

      • Deep13

        Just search in google for “(project name) download”, its not that hard

        • Winged Dragon Of JT

          I know, I mean like I cant get all the projects on the same apps. Not all apps have the same selections. For example, give me a program that might have DD2

    • Khosta The Tormentor

      Email me all the drought is over tapes

    • Carter 3 sessions mixtape, Carter 2 sessions mixtape, suffix, LilWeezyana, the prefix, young money mixtape vol 1, sq 1-7

      You gotta android ? If you download a BitTorrent & search lip Wayne discography you can probably find everything you’d be looking for an more

      • Winged Dragon Of JT

        bet that, I restored most of the material👌🏾👌🏾

    • fewcha

  • Ulaş Büker

    https://www.youtube.c om/watch?v=fCu4v8cl-eI

  • Khosta The Tormentor

    The Demi Lovato song is beyond amazing OMG I didnt think Wayne could top his Solange feature but this is it, This coulda been a Carter song

    • plantman

      Is it me or Does Waynes Mixing/Mastering on this track sound off? At least it does on the Youtube Vids.

      • fewcha

        download the cdq fro the lil wayne hq message board then instead of listening to low quality rips on youtube lol

      • Khosta The Tormentor

        Tf boy download a better version

        • plantman

          I’ll just wait until tomorrow once it’s on Apple Music to judge Wayne’s verse.. as of now the Youtube version i found mixing sucks..

    • fewcha

      calm down its good not beyond amazing

      • Khosta The Tormentor

        It is imo

    • WeezyLEF

      No, the fuck it didn’t top Mad nor could it been a Carter song, stfu. It’s cool, just another feature for another pop love song, stop fangirling

      • Big Tune or Lil Tune

        those are the type of songs that top the charts tho.

        • WeezyLEF

          As a fan, I would like to see Wayne succeed, of course, but I’d take a Mad type of song over any song that would chart

      • Khosta The Tormentor

        You dumb af if you dont think this track is a diamond

        • WeezyLEF

          You’re dumb if you think it is 😂😂

  • fewcha

    run it up gets better every listen

    • Dr Carter

      Word

  • Patrick H

    Can’t believe we didn’t get no D6 yesterday. It just shows none of these mixtape websites are reliable. They only did them countdowns for clicks. They know nothing about D6.

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      It’s coming in late October chill.

      • P ON THA TRACK

        so how you know it´s coming late october? Bc of gotinstrumetals? How they know if Wayne himself might not even know..

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Yeah that’s what they told us late October my homies got the information from them. I can’t tell the instrumentals he’s done so far but it’s fire I heard.. I can’t fuckin wait to hear it.

          • P ON THA TRACK

            can´t wait too tho, lets hope we get that soon

  • Khosta The Tormentor

    Hope Demi makes Lonely a single its on repeat and my fav track at the moment

  • FLOMETHEUS

    I Can See “Lonely” Charting. Prolly Peaking at Like 78-81 Since Wayne is Cold. Few Years Ago it Would Been Top 40 Easy 💯

  • Why y’all keep talking about numbers and charting, who cares how was the music

  • BGandmydrank

    Loyal to da soil way better
