Jacquees Says Lil Wayne Is The Reason He Signed To Cash Money Records

Jacquees recently chopped it up with TIDAL to promote his debut studio album, 4275, available on all music platforms now.

The Cash Money Records artist revealed Lil Wayne is his favorite rapper and his dream collaboration, as well as that Birdman told him personally he will make the collabo happen.

Also during their interview, which you can read below, Jacquees spoke on growing up listening to the Hot Boys, looking up to Tunechi as a kid, and Tune being the reason that he signed to Cash Money!

Your debut album title 4275 is a tribute to your roots in Georgia. Talk to me about how you were raised and the music you were influenced by growing up in Decatur.
I was raised by my mother and my community. It’s the East side [of Decatur], it’s different from every side. The type of music I grew up listening to and was influenced by was the Jacksons, Temptations. I used to listen to Hot Boys, Ginuwine, Usher, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Jodeci, Jagged Edge, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ron Isley, R. Kelly – all the classics.

Who’s your dream collaborator?
I wanna work with Wayne and Drake next. I already told Birdman two days ago. He actually brought it to me. He was like I’m finna push you to Wayne.

What would that mean to you to have a song with him?
I looked up to Wayne when I was a little kid. Wayne’s still my favorite rapper. Wayne’s the reason I signed to Cash Money but it’s like I love Wayne, even though I didn’t rap. I wanted to be a rapper before I knew I could sing. I never tried to look like Wayne, except when I was little. When I was five or six, I had the Cash Money chain with foil in my mouth. It was already a dream come true signing to Cash Money but it’s another thing to work with Wayne. That’s like signing to Motown and not getting to work with Michael Jackson. I ain’t met [Wayne] yet but I know he rock with my music.

  • N.O. Samson

    “I ain’t met [Wayne] yet but I know he rock with my music.”. Jacquees said he talks to Mack Maine all the time. I bet Mack Maine made that shit up & told Jacquees just to make him happy

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Wym ?

  • Kennykenkentune#🥀🥀OG

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    • Kennykenkentune#🥀🥀OG

      I think so idk

  • N.O. Samson

    Momma named Cita, I love you Cita
    Remember when your pussy second husband used to beat you?
    Remember when I went into the kitchen got the cleaver?
    He ain’t give a fuck, I ain’t give a fuck either

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      You think pusha t killed drake hype and does this mean drake hit his peak ?

      • N.O. Samson

        In the long run when Drake has retired & people talk about the best rappers list, people are gonna bring up Meek exposing the ghostwriters, and they may bring up the Pusha T beef. I think both of them hurt Drake’s career more than we realize but only in the long run, I don’t think it damaged him that much NOW though, like, the average Drake fan doesn’t care about all that ghostwriter & baby stuff etc, they just care about the music. I kinda think he’s reached his peak now, success wise, I seen a lot of people say he fell off, or all his songs sound the same now etc, plus artists turning against him. When you’ve been on top for so long, people are bound to start hating at some point, it kinda happened to Wayne too. I don’t think Pusha or Meek have anything to do with Drake falling off though tbh

        • Big Tune or Lil Tune

          Yeah it’s looking like views outsold and terms of qulity music from the public is better. So if wayne singles are big for C5 this means kendrick and Wayne have the opportunity to be on top ? Damn sold 600k and had top 5 smash hits.. he might drop another album this year i heard

          • N.O. Samson

            I’ve seen a lot of people hating on Scorpion, that actually surprised me because I complain about everything but I loved everything about Scorpion 🤷🏾‍♂️ LOL. Wayne & Kendrick are already on top, and they’ve already made songs together but I 100% think their C5 song will be a massive hit, the best rapper alive & one of the best from this generation together…that has to be a classic! Plus Wayne influenced Kendrick. I heard he might drop another album too but I dunno if that’s true

            • Big Tune or Lil Tune

              I don’t wtf. They’re both spittin on it. I think it will be a good song on the album if it’s still on there. Drake is on top as of right now, kendrick is one of top rappers who could takeover. I think if wayne put out some big hits, album good and biggest sale he can be on top again.

              • N.O. Samson

                You don’t think it will be a hit? I get what you mean, most lyrical songs don’t make it to the top anymore, it will still be a good song though. Wale & J. Cole were supposed to be on Drake/Kendrick’s level, I wonder what happened. J. Cole still sells though, he’s just not mainstream. And yeah facts, Wayne can definitely be back on top again, I don’t think he’s finished just yet. I have a feeling C5 will be Wayne’s best album, one of them anyway, he’s had so much time to work on it, hopefully it does sell a lot but he needs to put out a big hit first to help

  • N.O. Samson

    You better get your dollars up, and guess what, I was up
    I get my cheese like Mickey Mouse, or else you better Donald Duck

  • Alfa Wulf featuring GeeTune – This Is For You

    So sick need a doc, yes
    A creature, monster like the Loch Ness
    I gets hotter by the toc, when I sizzle to death
    I just tell the clock give me a sec

  • N.O. Samson

    Wayne needs to release the OG Carter 3/Tha Drought Is Over 2 as a physical album

    • Carter3 Lil Wayne

      Nigga Da Drought is Over aren’t even official mixtapes

      • N.O. Samson

        I know but they have songs that’s supposed to be on C3, that’s why I said the OG Carter 3/Tha Drought Is Over 2. Tha Drought Is Over 2 is literally the original C3, it got leaked

  • N.O. Samson

    I don’t know that you been told
    But I can tell you something bout me
    I smoke weed, I drink and I roll
    Now is you fucking with me
    Now I can’t tell you shit bout the next man
    But he ain’t got nothing on me
    Cause after a pill and half and a shot of Patrón
    I’m a pussy MVP!

  • TRINX

    Is there more is the best song on drake album in my opinion

    • Moss

      I think can’t take a joke is the best

  • TRINX

    It’s 20 something songs so you need at least a week to review

  • JJFreeC5

    Y’all think wayne announcing something soon?

    • Big Tune or Lil Tune

      Yeah july his month

    • Nijee

      Yeah he probably announce something this week

    • 🐐🐐

      Wednesday 😈😈

  • Dr Carter

    Man Im in my Bellagio’s room. Thats incredible

  • N.O. Samson

    Imagine there’s a YM cypher on the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, with the same artists as the Karen Civil cypher plus Nicki & Drake. Jay Jones can replace Flow…maybe take out Lil Twist & Hoodybaby…replace them with Mack Maine or something

  • N.O. Samson

    Exactly, they need to prove people wrong. Plus, how you the best rap group in the game but you never had a cypher before, other than that Karen Civil one. With Scorpion & Queen out/coming out, and hopefully C5, 2018 will be a good year to do one
