Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For Ozone Magazine 2006 Issue

For #ThrowbackThursday today, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the February 2006 issue of Ozone magazine, which took place a few months after his Tha Carter II album had been released in stores.

In an interview with Julia Beverly for the mag, Weezy discussed everything from Hurricane Katrina (even though he was tired of talking about it), why he was not trying to be Jay-Z on his C2 album cover, wanting everyone to stop categorizing him, going to the University of Houston for Psychology classes, and deciding it was time to be a CEO.

What’s going on between you and B.G.? He put out a song dissing you, and I heard you were shouting “Fuck B.G.” at a recent show.
My album is in stores now, Tha Carter II, It’s my fifth solo album. It’s number two on the charts.

I’m sure everyone’s been asking you about your relationship with Trina. Are you open to talking about that?
No.

You’re trying to keep your relationship away from the public eye?
I ain’t tryin’. I am.

You can check out scans from Tunechi‘s cover story below that also includes him talking about touring with Jeezy and T.I., creating songs for different cities and sending them to DJs, his daughter Reginae Carter and why he would not let her be a rapper because he doesn’t think it is a good game for females, and much more!

“I want to be a leader forever. When you want to be a leader, you’ll take any challenge that comes towards you. Challenges and competitions are different, cause you can make them enjoyable. That’s what you strive for. With every challenge I get, I love it.”

    • JT

      Blow, D2, Carter Collections Wayne is genuinely a whole rapper on his own.

      • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

        Rns bro

    • You were born when this Wayne was popping off lol wtf

  • David D

    This is the Wayne I love when he gave answers like that

    So cocky and that I don’t give a fuck attitude

    • Turtis

      It’s interesting to see him try to balance between still not giving a fuck and becoming a leader and mentor to all the lil rappers.

  • Raz!

    thats the cover they used for the lil weezyana mixtape

    • Turtis

      A hidden gem, underrated

  • Turtis

    Those interviews quotes… damn, lol. Confidence and swagger. Reminds me of the guy who asked about jazz in his raps.

  • KarTune2.0

    This here is the GOAT, but give Wayne his respect bro, thug or none of em gonna be booming in 10 years either; and it’s not hate just appreciate em

    • King Slime Thugger

      They said this in 2013 about thug..it’s 2020 and he went platinum. They said the same
      About lil Uzi in 2015, 5 years down the line and he’s one of the most popular. Yall gotta accept that some of these new artists are legends

      • Thug ain’t booming he can’t drop a hit to save his life without a big name feature

        • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

          neither can wayne

      • Best

        So for you Young Thug and Lil Uzi are legends? 😂🤣

        • King Slime Thugger

          Yep.

          • Best

            Young Thug is good and he is also my second favourite rapper. I don’t like Lil Uzi Vert, he is trash to me. However none of them are great rappers yet and you called them legends already 😂🤣

            • King Slime Thugger

              🤡🤡🤡

  • Patrick H

    I don’t get why Wayne said he wasn’t tryna be like Jay on the C2 cover because he clearly was. Same with C1.

  • JT

    “I cant feel my face: Cocky in da coup but dey luv it, sittin on buttons, a pair of 20 sums, tires so skinny that they lookin like nothin, leather so soft like Im sittin on muffins.” Man, this era of Wayne hit so hard, esp because the hiphop filter was small…we had Wayne, Jeezy, Boosie, TI, Busta, Fat Joe and Kanye. Plus the eras that came about around the time, Soulja Boy, DJ Unk, Franchise Boyz… whew.. what a time to be a young African american with dreadlocks!

    • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

      Rubber Burninnnn

      • JT

        Whew.. thats my fav song off the mf tape son. You’re elite. 🏆

    • RktDaKid

      🔥

  • JT

    But when 07 came around and Wayne got greedier than anyone in the game is when his music took a new level in hiphop… Scarface, I Feel Like Dying, Prostitue, Me and My Drank, Duffle Bag Boy… sheesh, thats just to name a few… thats when he was making the game his bitch

  • King Slime Thugger

    21st century most influential artist was given to Young thug, him and his kids are running the game but apparently he won’t last😂😂🤡🤡

  • King Slime Thugger

    Wayne fans said after Barter 6 young thug was gonna fade away🤣, only Wayne stans still praying for his downfall 💀

  • King Slime Thugger

    This interview brazy🤣, same with the one where he dissing pusha t🐐

  • RktDaKid

    That Fuckin Money Bag Chain Doe

    • Giraffe Boy

      rns

  • MuddyCupSavage

    In my opinion, poppin these days is nothing like being poppin back then. We can argue all day about who’s hot right now in the game and who’s gonna sell what, but if you think about it, the numbers these days aren’t comparable to back when Wayne, em, jay, etc went platinum. Streams are too skewed. The mid 2000s to about 2012 was the last of that type of hip hop generation. Now anyone can get big off of one song. This is also why I regard Wayne as on a mother level cause he was the last of a dying breed.

  • Dr Carter

    Goat !

  • Wattblt 🚫🧢

    Lmao have y’all ever heard of any YG fans? Like someone said turn that New YG on

    • 🤣🤣🤣🤣Nah tbh not since My Nigga

    • Giraffe Boy

      same with french montana fans

  • Imagine being Wayne, waking up everyday knowing no one will ever compete with you when it comes to the art of rapping

    • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

      Yikes💀💀😭😭

    • Giraffe Boy
