Tyga Discusses How Lil Wayne Made Him Into The Person He Is Today, Being Mad He Wasnt On Every Girl & More

Tyga recently sat down with Ebro Darden for a one on one interview with Beats 1 radio to promote his latest album, Legendary.

During their conversation, which you can watch after the jump below, Ty revealed it was Lil Wayne who helped him grow into the person that he is today from his influence, as well as his work ethic.

“Wayne, he kinda like, he helped me grow into this person and really just inspired me and mentored me through the years. He signed me when I was 17. I was over there when he was doing Carter III so, that whole process, I had somebody to look [up] to as far as like, this is how I should do it. I should be in the studio every day. This person’s doing it. I should be doing shows… you know what I’m saying? I had guidance in a way. Just putting him on the beginning of the album is legendary. After all the drama, all the shit that he’s been through, label stuff, me, and still come out on top…”

T-Raww also mentioned that he put his Tune feature at the beginning of his Legendary album, because he is the actual legend. The former Young Money artist even explained how “Bed Rock” came together after first having hooks from Ne-Yo and Omarion, why you always have to be ready with verses when in the studio with Weezy, and being mad that he wasn’t on “Every Girl“!

      • Giraffe Boy

        hell no

    • Raz!

      fax

    • ITS SO GOOD

    • Patrick H

      Preach.

  • Brad pitt and st louis from the og c5 tracklist sounded like they would have worked on the final list

  • Remember when niggas heard Mona Lisa snippet they wrote it off cuz of how misleading it was with the high pitch😂😂

  • Moral to the story😭🔥🔥

  • I’m glad just chill was left off the final version of c5, lmao wasn’t what I expected

    • 😂😂😂 cuz the original C5 seemed to not be about substance or concept just punchlines lol that’s why most songs from original C5 are like that

  • I know Better Get Em and She Said Better Get Em probably the same beat of him just going in no hook, bars on bars

  • What about Form Good? Track 9 on disc 2

  • The give me what helped martin sleep on the same night he had a dream line a highlight from krazy, niggas hated the song at the time but wayne was spittin, I just didn’t really fuck wit the whole “I know I know I know” part lol

    • Bruh that line was probably my fav on the song, and he got other hard bars on there too. I still play Krazy, last verse my fav

  • Heard this gem? It was such a good vibe at the studio bruh
    https://m.soundcloud.com/khosta44/changes

  • Raz!

    tyga should be back on ym

    • On my flag fr, he doing good without ym too, maybe some more tyga and wayne collabs would be nice

    • K9OUSSAY

      No he is on top now

    • HE DOING BETTER INDEPENDANT

  • And take me to where I’ve never been
    But not to where I never be in
    I ain’t never scared, but I’m scared of me
    Me vs. Me, I need a referee

  • La Raza you listened to Velvet that leaked

    • Yeah it got some great songs on that joint, don’t know if little girls eyes were apart of it or if it leaked separate

      • Yea it was part of it, that’s my favourite song on there and damn that sounds like a pure Wayne project unlike other post 2014 Wayne projects where he sounds like he adjusting to the sound of the game

        • Would have been big prolly if it released during the time period it was recorded, same thing with t wayne

  • But one song I want the most is Life Of Mr Carter

  • I remember before Elliott’s interview last year when he asked us what we would like him to ask Wayne, I told him to ask if we will get Life Of Mr Carter and I got so many retweets this nigga really asked Wayne but Wayne didn’t even understand the question his answer so disappointing😒

    • K9OUSSAY

      U was the man still remember that and im still disappointed lol

  • Lmao this nigga Wayne said with the Carter song he was tryna get jay-z on it but Jay was busy couldn’t get time for him to lace it before album release..
    I think Wayne was talking bout another song here not Life Of Mr Carter

    • K9OUSSAY

      He didn’t even know that he made a song called : life of mr Carter 🤣

    • Giraffe Boy

      huh

  • K9OUSSAY

    Looking at the picture of the article ..
    Is euro still alive?
    He is so lazy maybe year 2050 he will release a new project

    • Giraffe Boy

      he’s the new t-streets

    • Honestly know how the label works, it isn’t a matter of “okay I’m done with my album and I’m ready”. It’s like nah you gotta wait till we greenlight you. It’s more like a sports roster. But damn I hope DEN drop soon kuz on Twitter he just said it was done

  • SteveJobs

  • Baby | Pleasure

    Y’all remember that Wayne song ‘she tried’ with Nore and Birdman from 2013?🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
    “SHE TRIED TO KISS ME AFTER HEEEEAAAD…FUCK WRONG WITH HER HEAD”

    His voice was everything back then

    • Wordplay 187

      My brothers fw that “Pornstar” song

      • Baby | Pleasure

        🔥🔥🔥 They really gone fw the ‘Long Overdue’ album❤️ I’ll send in our first single for that in a couple of days. I’m conjuring up some shit that’s gone blow the HQ out the water

  • Lil Wayne in 2004-2007 was like a character from Godfather or some shit

  • Day1_la_laker

    What happened to deezy lmao his music was trash asf

  • Lil Wayne need to start watching movies like Scarface, Godfather, Heat etc to get back to his 2004-2007 image

  • It’s like rn he be watching American Pie

  • Even his pronounciation of words back then he was like Scarface turned to a rapper

  • That 100 Million video dawg

  • Yea don’t you remember he was in character back then, a mafia character

  • Wordplay 187

    Wayne’s verse on Chico still one of the hardest verses he dropped and the last couple of years

  • People back then were making theories on how wayne was somehow tied to the movie theater shooting back in 2012 when the dark knight was on because of the skeletons in my homies still lol

  • Remember on Carter 1 when he said “Got the glass House floor to let me know who up there. Look down and you see your reflection, you ain’t gotta know who down here you just know you protected..”
    G shit

  • Even his shots on music videos were so mafia back then

    • Wayne went from dope directors like colin tiley to people like dj scoob doo directing his music videos like grindin

  • Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
    All the parts of Godfather are all a part of me…

    • Turtis

      Classic

  • I remember when I watched Scarface for the first time I knew that’s where Wayne got 50% of his image from. Even the way his mouth moves when he talks or raps 2004-2007 was just like Scarface, then the voice how raspy it was back then kinda similar to how Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) talks from Godfather

    • I ain’t never seen godfather before but scarface influential asf even without watching

      • Bruh if you watch Godfather or just watch clips from YouTube you’ll hear the voice that’s what inspired Wayne’s voice from his prime

        And yup he definitely took Scarface character af

  • S/O to the spider man nigga tho

  • Bruh you gotta hear this shit, watch Godfather clips of Marlon Brando this nigga Wayne slick for seeing how this voice would work on rap

    • They don’t make gangsta movies like they use to no more

      • Bruh Fr why aren’t there no classics anymore smh maybe cuz the bar was set too high

  • Khosta used to pull thru on nc back then too

  • Where’s Blur

  • I remember you Raza and Tunechibruh were the famous Mexicans

  • Niggas became nonexisent if I ever went out my way and roasted them into oblivion but I stay chill most of the time lol.

  • Would there have been Newchapter if it wasn’t for Grateful though

  • Knudtsen

    Khosta, what happen to your insta songs?

  • Where do you usually get your beats from tho khosta

    • Some my brother do, some I get from YouTube

      • Them youtube beats are on point if you are able to flow on them easily even tho they ain’t yours

  • Baby | Pleasure

    I’m glad Khosta finally blowing up. My dawgs really up😍😊

  • Baby | Pleasure

    Kermbitch missing out on all the success

  • La Raza have you ever thought bout hopping on a beat?

  • Lmao you lurkin

  • If only this site had a lurkometer like R6

  • Khosta has some of that wayne influenced bars on some of his songs but nigga got his own style too

    • Definately bro my structure of bars heavily Wayne influenced when I’m rapping, if I ever blow up I’ma shout out Weezy and reach out. Well the main reason I started rapping was that I wanted to have a song with Wayne haha not cuz I actually wanted a rap career. But then to have a song with Wayne I need a rap career aaah

      • Hop onto a track with that deathwish flow and it’d be iconic

        • Bruh that would be dope Fr, I’ma do that just that that’s Wayne on God mode😭

          • On some drought 3 shit too

            • Bruuh, my brother always says to me Da Drought 3 is the best rap voice of all time, I agree and it’s fucked up that Wayne can probably still do it if he wanted to

  • What’s yall top 5 Wayne mixtapes excluding Dd3, NC and D2

    • Mine would be

      Prefix
      Suffix
      Sftw
      d3

    • Wordplay 187

      D6 plus reloaded
      D5
      Sftw
      Sftw
      D2

      Honorable mention: D4 not because I like it but because that was Wayne’s last peak of his career. He was the most infamous/famous rapper. A lot of white kids that wore cookie monster hats loved that tape.
