Preme Reveals How Hot Boy Came About, Calls Lil Wayne A Legend & A GOAT

Preme, formerly known as P. Reign, recently chopped it up with Billboard for an interview and during their conversation, they spoke a little bit on Lil Wayne.

The OVO affiliate revealed how his and Weezy‘s “Hot Boy” collaboration came about, how PARTYNEXTDOOR was going to be on the song at first, taking a year and a half to get Wayne to do spit a verse on it, being in awe of shooting a music video with him, and more.

You can read exactly what Preme said about Tunechi after the jump below. He even called Tune a “legend” and a “G.O.A.T.”!

What was the process of securing a Lil Wayne feature on “Hot Boy” like? He gave you a vintage verse on a track named after his former group.

I was actually in the studio with PARTYNEXTDOOR. We were working on some music and I came up with the “Hot Boy” record, which was supposed to have him on it [before] “Can’t Hang.” He didn’t want to do a verse and wanted me to kill this record on my own because it suited me way more.

One of my friends thought it would be crazy to get Lil Wayne on it because we were talking about “Hot Boy.” He was like, “Yeah, but you can’t do that. It’s going to be impossible to get Lil Wayne on there. You don’t even know him.” It was kind of like a personal mission of mine to prove my homie wrong and get Wayne on the record. It took me about a year and a half but it ended up working out and he sent me a legendary verse.

It’s dope that I got a classic verse and it’s a vintage Cash Money record we were trying to recreate. I met him a few times with Drake but we never really spoke. I met him again at the video shoot for “Hot Boy” in Miami. It was like a fan moment for me. He’s a legend and the G.O.A.T. and that was one of the things on my bucket list to work with [Lil Wayne]. To do a video was ten times crazier. I was in awe to be in the same room as him.

      mack maine and cortez bryant

    • Yall niggas on this site need to get with the times, this isnt 2012 anymore. Music come and goes. D6 had its moment already, new music drops every week ppl move on.

      • Don Plantmen

        My dude is right, D6 wasn’t to build hype or anything, it was intended to be enjoyed by his true fans, nothing more.

      • G.O.A.T worshipper

        Ya peeped that Royce da 5-9 & Em joint, what else you got? Nothing. I go to wayne for real rap not these mumbling niggas

  • Lil Brick ๐Ÿงฑ Retired

    lmaooo how he gon say this was a vintage Cash Money Wayne verse when it’s drenched in autotune and talking about growing a beard

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Barely had any autotune on it. He mastered his voice pitches.

    • Patrick H

      Dead.

  • Lil Brick ๐Ÿงฑ Retired

    Wayne is the god of the effortless/laidback flow

    • FACTS

    • Patrick H

      Preach.

    • Chaz Baker

      Dedication 2, No Ceilings, and D6R is Wayne hardest mixtapes

  • N.O. Samson

    What do Tez & Mack Maine actually do for YM? Tez used to be the president but now it’s Mack Maine. Tez has other artists to manage outside of YM, Mack Maine just appears to follow Wayne everywhere. I can’t actually imagine Drake & the other artists answering to Mack Maine & following his orders for example, he doesn’t have that president vibe to me

  • N.O. Samson

    Tez & Wayne say they’re best friends but they’re rarely together, Wayne’s always with Mack Maine, Gudda Gudda etc

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Cortez takes care of the business.

      • N.O. Samson

        Wayne’s business or YM’s business? Cause I thought that was Mack Maine’s job. Isn’t Cortez just a manager now

  • Big Tune or Lil Tune

    You can literally grab all of those trap artist that was mentioned and combined those numbers together Eminem still out sales them.. are you dumb ?

  • Big Tune or Lil Tune

    That’s the times.. dude are you like 40 or something. Damnn yall old niggas need to get with times

  • N.O. Samson

    Lmao. I was just listening to Knuck If You Buck & Mack Maine says “Young Maine for president”, and it got me thinking, what does he actually do? I legit can’t see him handling business

  • N.O. Samson

    Imagine getting all exciting because you just got signed to YM, thinking you’re gonna meet Wayne & that, only to find out that Mack Maine is your president ๐Ÿ™

    • Patrick H

      Hahaha.

  • N.O. Samson

    Did Fee Fee/Fee Banks used to be Wayne’s/Sqad Up’s manager or am I making this up?

    • YungJackBauer

      He was affiliate or something like that

      • N.O. Samson

        I thought Fee or Supa Blanco was his manager in the early 2000’s, but I googled Lil Wayne old manager & it says it was this lady called Melissa Philipian, she got fired in 2005 & sued Wayne in 2010, I don’t remember her though

    • Patrick H

      Yes.

  • N.O. Samson

    After that, they should release C5 & then another mixtape called “I Hope It Wa5 Worth The Wait” or something lol. Worth The Wait Vol. 1

  • N.O. Samson

    Yoo Weezy legit should make me his manager, I feel like i’ll do him more justice than Tez

  • YungJackBauer

    Stop esketing boi.

  • YungJackBauer

    Young mula baby and the Y is for Yungjackbauer

    • Patrick H

      Hah.

  • N.O. Samson

    Lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • N.O. Samson

    What happened to the Sqad Up reunion album?

    • Don Plantmen

      Scrapped, no one wants that BS.

      • N.O. Samson

        I wanted it, I loved the Sqad Up era, it probably wouldn’t have got a lot of buyers though

        • Don Plantmen

          No it def wouldn’t get the respect it rightfully deserves, not a fan myself but i can’t deny Hot boyz and Sqad up had it on lock

          • N.O. Samson

            I split Wayne’s career into eras, my favorite Wayne flows are his Sqad up & Carter 2 era flows. I think the Hot Boyz & Sqad Up definitely influenced a lot of rappers, but I can’t see a lot of people supporting a reunion

    • SAME THING AS C5

      • N.O. Samson

        So like your name says, it’s “coming soon” ๐Ÿ™

    • Patrick H

      Soon come.

  • Don Plantmen

    Anyone have a link to the MTV unplugged for Wayne?

  • GOOD READ

  • FOR REAL

  • Patrick H

    Wayne killed his verse on this.

  • Patrick H
