Damian Lillard Says Lil Wayne Is His Mainstay On All Of His Albums

When Big D.O.L.L.A. dropped, Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A. chopped it up with HotNewHipHop for an interview.

During their conversation (see below), the rapper/NBA player talked about his relationship with Lil Wayne and earning his respect.

Dame also said that Tunechi is a “mainstay” on all of his albums and whenever he puts out a new project, we can always expect a Tune feature!

Before the interview, I also found out that Wayne has some production credits on your current album and you’ve worked with him in the past. How were you able to cultivate that relationship over the years?
He saw that I was doing music and thought it would be a good idea for us to connect on some music stuff. We knew a mutual person and they connected us. From the jump, me and him had direct contact with each other. So I didn’t have to go through two or three people to communicate. It was just me and him. We were texting, talking on the phone and he sent me a song originally. When he sent me the song, I sent it back immediately because I didn’t want to keep Wayne waiting. He was like, “Man, you really can rap.” He respected it and sent me like two more songs so I sent those back. I ended up sending three or four songs back to him and then I got him on my first album. We’ve been real cool ever since then. He’s kind of a mainstay on my album. Whenever I’m doing an album, you can expect that Wayne track.

You said you made more songs than you ended up putting on the album. What’s your decision process behind choosing which tracks you want on the album?
I send them to people whose opinion I respect. I’m real cool with Common. I’m real cool with Wayne. I’m real cool with J Cole. I’m cool with his manager. I’m cool with Pusha T. People who’s opinions I respect, I’ll send them a song and take the feedback, whatever criticisms they have, and then, I’ll play it for the people that I’m around, people on my label, people that I do music with. I let them hear it. Then, I’ll just listen to it over time myself and if it’s something I eventually grow off of, I’ll be like “Nah. I don’t like it as much as I did in the beginning.” Then I’ll take that with the opinions that I got from other people. There are some songs I make where I really like it and over time I still like it. Some times I like songs more.

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

    is it true that 400+ songs were recorded for C3? cant find that info anywhere but on one site

    • Wordplay 187

      It’s quite possible that’s true it’s easy to record a bunch of songs

      • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired

        ok but not when they all prime wayne tho

        like bruh imagine if you could get your hands on all those joints… that’s like finding oil in your backyard

        • Wordplay 187

          I can understand that slime I was just saying how much Wayne records

    • Turtis

      Maybe 400 beats got tried, but no way there was 400 polished tracks (at least mixtape quality) or else we would have heard at least 200-300, and all the C3 leaks probably equal more like 100.

      Wayne probably just freestyled over lots of beats and it was probably like half cool so they saved it incase they needed it but they never used the beat again either, so they just end up with lots and lots of half done songs.

      • It’s possible, I told one of my friends to send me so for a mixtape I recorded in 2017 but I only shared the songs with my friends and scrapped it. He sent back 70+ songs and it was for one tape

    • Jake Sharma #FreeJuelz🐯

      1000 (according to wayne) were recorded, we only have around 150 of those

    • Patrick H

      What site?

  • Khaos

    Who got a fb? Y’all need to hear some of this fire I be spitting I recorded songs over the phone until my mic comes in 😂😂😂

  • Khaos

    No but the only reason I don’t because I don’t know how ig really works 😂

  • Khaos

    That’s what I got a manger for, not like a professional or nun but he sets up the venues and recording session and post my music and shxt so I usually leave that all to him?

  • Khaos

    Is it a book that could benefit me or him?

  • Lil Brick 🧱 Retired
    • Patrick H

      Hah.

  • Turtis

    If I don’t have the answer it’s probably on the web, like I’m a damn tarantula

    • Patrick H

      Please dont let be misudnerstood.

      • Turtis
