Polo G Reveals Why Lil Wayne Is One Of His Main Influences

Polo G recently sat down with XXL for the latest edition of their “Who Am I?” video series.

Around the 0:47 mark of the clip, which you can check out below, Polo was asked which music artists he listened to while growing up to which he answered Lil Wayne.

The Chicago rapper then revealed Wayne was one of his musical influences: “Growing up I listened to Lil Wayne, that was one of my main influences, music-wise, because of his wordplay and metaphors!”

  • 🐐🐐

    Niggas talking about wayne all they want but he hasn’t been touched yet🀫 only thing been touched was his tour bus which he wasn’t in & a hoe nigga throwing drinks in clubs πŸ˜‚other than that nobody pressed wayne

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Every single top 50 most popular rapper in 2019 has a majority white fanbase (not including rappers in other countries)

    • 🐐🐐

      Lmao bro you trying to prove that point fr

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        It’s unfortunate I even have to “prove” it. It should be common sense.

        • 🐐🐐

          It’s not it’s debatable

  • 🐐🐐

    I mean I don’t have a problem with it but when we talking wayne & ye there isn’t no competition

  • 🐐🐐

    Ye even said Wayne was the best rapper in the world at one point In time

  • 🐐🐐

    I fuck with y’all fr tho I like how everyone has they opinions at times and understand that everything they say can’t be fax

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      But my conversation right now is not an opinion. It is a fact that whites are the majority of hip hop’s audience and it is a fact that Wayne is not a top 10 most popular rapper.

      • HIDE

        It’s not a fact though jeeves

        • 🐐🐐

          Lol fr he trying tho

          • HIDE

            This nigga has no logic

      • 🐐🐐

        Key word popular * you saying popular mines is a fact that he is top 10 top 5 best rapper

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    It’s quite simple really. Whites have, on average, far more disposable income and purchasing power than blacks. They are far more likely to purchase physical albums, purchase concert tickets, and purchase merch.

    • 🐐🐐

      Lmao you won nigga damn

  • 🐐🐐

    Lmao niggas would be getting mad asf rn

  • HIDE

    What y’all think about reparations

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Affirmative action is already a huge system that supports black people, but I believe it actually does harm for the black community in many cases as well.

      • HIDE

        Uhhhh said reparations

        • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

          Affirmative action is absolutely a form of reparation that does not involve direct financial subsidization

          • HIDE

            No it’s not

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    I would wager that hip hop’s audience hasn’t been majority black since the 80s. Early 90s at the absolute latest. Pac, Biggie, and Snoop were instrumental in making hip hop a white majority audience. Eminem only made the dominance of white listeners many magnitudes greater.

    The entire NWA film was centered around this topic of appealing to the white audience.

  • 🐐🐐

    Being the besr rapper and popular rapper are two different subjects sure wayne might not be the most popular but is he top 10 top 5 *Best rapper * big facts

    • 🐐🐐

      Best

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Music has never been objective or factual. It is not a “fact” that Wayne is a “top 10 best rapper”. It may be a widely held opinion, but that does not mean it is a fact.

      • 🐐🐐

        Like I said if i feel wayne top 5 rapper or even number 1 nobody gone change that

        • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

          That is still an opinion

          • 🐐🐐

            But in my mind it’s a fact lol and you can’t change it

  • HIDE

    I’ve made it a policy now to stop “debating” and explaining I just say what’s what an leave it at that

    • 🐐🐐

      Lol fr im done debating with niggas about why wayne is the best if they don’t agree they don’t agree πŸ˜‚

      • HIDE

        Fax I’m just like nah Wayne’s better than that nigga whoever they be sayin

        • 🐐🐐

          πŸ˜‚exactly niggas be like pac the best rapper like nigga name me songs other than dear mama California hit em up ambitious & Hail Mary or stfu

  • HIDE

    Okay so everyone besides kunechi, what y’all think about reparations

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    The definition of reparation is “the making of amends for a wrong one has done, by paying money to or otherwise helping those who have been wronged”

    Affirmative Action is a systemic practice that lowers the standard for African American students to be accepted to top level academic institutions. That is a textbook example of a reparation.

    • HIDE

      True

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Reparations are fine to a certain extent but they arguably would do more harm than good for the majority of the black community.

  • Tommy Shelby

    Shoot school up

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Indians, Koreans, Chinese, & Japanese are the most economically prosperous people in America, on average

  • HIDE

    I wonder what the next new music genre will be

    • HIDE

      I feel like mumble rap is gunna further differentiate itself from the archetypal rap sound and become it’s own genre…maybe

      • Nah that shits gonna die within the next 5 years. Rap is gonna be more about production rather and all other genres are gonna start to sound more rap influenced

        • HIDE

          Rap is already a lot more about production

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      EDM based – heavily focused on instrumental experimentation with vocals as a supplement, rather than a focus.

      • HIDE

        Wtf is edm

        • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

          Electronic dance music

  • HIDE

    Okay lemme rephrase I forgot there are some “other” people ..(kunechi) what music are black people gunna switch too since white people are invading hip hop

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Black people don’t need to switch genres because there will always be underground hip hop artists that appeal more to black culture

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        They just would not be too mainstream

      • HIDE

        No

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Reparations in 2019 would do more harm than good for the black community.

    Blacks are making substantial progress on their own – in academics, in government, in culture. This should be celebrated and endorsed.

    Reparations would be a step backward.

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Yep

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    I disagree. Many athletes/cultural icons participated in C5 promotion.

  • HIDE

    I just be like “no” now

  • HIDE

    I want my 40 acres and a mule goddamit

  • HIDE

    Nigger chink

  • HIDE

    😭😭😭

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    I support a person who deals with their hardships and makes the best of their life – I greatly support a black student who is admitted into a top academic institution on virtue of their work ethic.

    I do not support a person who does nothing to better themselves and would rather want everything from housing to food to education to financial support gifted to them on a platter.

    The famous saying is something along the lines of “giveΒ a man aΒ fish, and you feed him for a day. TeachΒ a man toΒ fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

    There are already a variety of programs set up specifically to aid blacks in this country. Reparations in 2019 would be “giving a man a fish” rather than “teaching him how to fish”

    • HIDE

      But u can’t bite a fish horse in the gift mouth

      • HIDE

        Very insightful

    • RSB

      Shut the fuck up

  • HIDE

    I remember when the snippet dropped for you and I an I thought it was gunna be such a dope track, an then the full song surfaced and I didn’t even care

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      That’s how I felt about “Life Of The Party”

  • HIDE

    This guy kunechi is jealous of my reparations

  • Slavery the best thing to happen to niggas cuz u think a nigga like me would be rockin all these diamond chains and drip and shit if we was still in Africa? The fuck? You think i be able to cop the 2022 bentley truck if i was still in Kenya?

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    I don’t think any song should make you want to jump off a bridge. Perhaps you should consult with a psychiatrist or therapist.

    • HIDE

      This guy’s a professional back off

  • HIDE

    The way I see it niggas provided free labor for millennia, I need back pay wit interest adjusted for inflation

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Your great great grandparents “provided free labor for millenia”

      You should not get “back pay with interest” for the work they did 200 years ago.

      You should respect the oppression and obstacles they faced and try to make the best of the opportunities that you now have that they did not, in order to better your life now that you have the ability to – unlike they did.

      • HIDE

        Uhh yes I should

        • HIDE

          Be paid backpay

      • Nigga you say provided like they had a choice. The difference is the slave owners that profited off black bodies were able to pass down their inheritance down to their grandkids but slaves when freed didn’t get shit. Riddle me that

        • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

          Slaves when freed gained opportunity. Many, many members of the black community in America have done an excellent job of taking advantage of that newfound opportunity. I celebrate black success.

          Reparations would only increase the power of white people on the black community, because it would clearly mark them as the superior oppressors even in 2019, 170 years after slavery.

  • So y’all not cool w reparations but what about all the former slave owners that got a Payday for losing slaves ?

    • HIDE

      See realniggashit boi

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Listen, it’s a reality throughout history that many civilizations have been oppressed. Blacks are not the only ones to have been enslaved in human history. Every race has experienced it.

      Do you think Russians should get reparations from Mongolia because Gengis Khan captured and enslaved the Rus civilization 800 years ago? Tell me how that situation is different.

    • RSB

      I need mine and if you ain’t black stfu cuz you wouldn’t undatand .

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        I disagree. Indians ought to have the ability to discuss the topic of reparations just as much as the African American community, given our very similar histories. Indians have not faced slavery in America, but they have by Whites just as much.

        • RSB

          I ain’t got nun to do wit y’all but me and my people need ours

  • Kunechi one of them niggas who do the bare minimum of research then spout it out like they know what they talking about

  • HIDE

    – fucks fat bitches

  • HIDE

    Triggs at yo neck boi

    • This nigga brought up Genghis Khan like tf that gotta do w me lol

      • HIDE

        πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ realshit

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        A historical example of a similar situation.

        • HIDE

          But sway “the fuck that had to do wit him”

    Them fat hoes do be havin the biggest fuckin asses

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    We Are Young Money or Young Money: Rise of an Empire

  • HIDE

    Oh shit

  • Let’s talk about how Haiti had to PAY FRANCE over a billion dollars for “loss of revenue” when they freed themselves in 1801.

    • HIDE

      Sak Pat tu kente!!!

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Trigga can you make a beat similar to “Everything” on Nasir

  • HIDE

    Ion know

  • Native Americans definitely need they reperations too. I would say Jews too but they got to control the world so it’s all good

    • HIDE

      Fr native Americans damn near extinct

      • HIDE

        Them niggas need a program where they can breed in captivity or some shit

        • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

          That sounds like a zoo πŸ˜‚

          • HIDE

            No it’s not *sweats*

    • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

      Jews don’t “control the world”. The future of the world is Asian dominance, despite years of oppression, slavery, and colonization in the past 300 years.

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    That’s your girlfriend?

  • RSB

    Last girl I hooked up with, I made her handwrite an entire form of consent with her signature describing everything she authorized me to do with her. Gotta be careful these days πŸ”₯

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    This is the truth

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Knowing the work ethic of both of you, it wouldn’t release until 2026

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    I recorded her writing the consent form too, just in case she might claim I forged the entire document.

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Sex in college has become not worth the risk.

    Forget STDs, pregnancies, etc… those are already big issues

    But imagine 20 years from now you are successful with a great job and social circle and BOOM – Emily from your college days hits you with a lawsuit saying you “raped” her back in your school days even though all you did was touch her arm.

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    Last year a man was accused of sexual assault because he patted a girl on the back. He had to pay thousands in legal fees and all his friends dropped him.
