Not long after dropping his Legendary album on June 7th, Tyga chopped it up with Variety for an interview.
During their conversation, T-Raww mentioned he put the Phantom on his Legendary project artwork to pay homage to Lil Wayne.
Also in the interview, which you can read below, Ty revealed that his favorite Wayne album is Tha Carter II and explained his reasons why!
What inspired the cover photo?
Definitely “Carter II” and also an old Ice T cover. I kept it West Coast with the girls on there. Then I did the Phantom, kind of as a tribute to Wayne.
Is “Carter II” your favorite Wayne album?
Yes because It was his breaking point of Wayne becoming who he is. I like the whole album. He rapped to the same beat three times on “Carter II”: the intro, the middle of the album, and the outro. The whole ting is just a good body of work.
