Scans Of Lil Wayne & Birdman Cover Story For XXL Magazine 2006 Issue

For #ThrowbackThursday today, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne and Birdman‘s cover story for the December 2006 issue of XXL magazine, which took place not long after their Like Father, Like Son collaboration album had been released in stores.

In an interview with Jon Caramanica for the mag, Weezy and Baby discussed everything from how they first met each other, why artists such as Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, B.G. and Turk all left Cash Money Records, and how they really felt about that.

You put out the “I Miss My Dawgs” song, and you said it came from a sincere place. The other [Hot Boys] guys said it was some sport of publicity stunt. How did that make you feel?
Fuck them niggas. They should be happy a nigga was still seeing them at that time. I don’t see them no more. Literally. They dead to me, man.

You can check out scans from Wayne and Baby‘s cover story below, courtesy of RSA, that also includes the two of them chatting about their family-like relationship, the early Cash Money days, relocating to Miami from New Orleans, and much more!

  • King Slime Thugger

    Rebirth was ahead of its time..Wayne’s style was at its peak too🔥🔥
    https://youtu.be/RfYcOYMNuXM

    • DC Wezzy

      Rebirth Is great but that’s the only Wayne project I cant listen to all the way

      • King Slime Thugger

        I feel that, I Kant listen to any Wayne project before C3 all the way too. Still like em tho

    • Patrick H

      Influened all these new gen rappers.

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Heyyy Barbie! Cuh classic

  • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

    ICONIC COVER

  • Patrick H

    Anyone else feel like Moral To The Story is better than Open Letter?

    I don’t see why he had to change it.

  • Skrrrt Cobain

    What’s Waynes last undeniable classic project?

    • Undeniably would be C4 even tho I think it’s trash. FWA should be the answer

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Fwa

      • Skrrrt Cobain

        Fwa is a very good album but it’s definitely not a classic.

    • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

      C3/NC

      • Skrrrt Cobain

        I second this.

        • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

          Not to say other projects aren’t good but none are undeniably classic

          • Skrrrt Cobain

            True.

    • King Slime Thugger

      IANAHB2

    • Giraffe Boy

      c5

    • Tha Martian 👑

      Funeral

      • FUNERAL IS NOT CLASSIC, THERE IS NOT EVEN MORE THAN 5 SONGS ON THERE THAT YOU WILL PLAY AGAIN

        • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

          it’s called being delusional

    • D6 RELOADED

    • YungJackBauer

      Drought 3

    • MuddyCupSavage

      We haven’t seen it yet, but if we have to choose I’d say FWA

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨
  • King Slime Thugger

    Lord , help us lord, my bitch is beautiful Helen of Troy

  • K9OUSSAY

    Hot Boy Tunechi all the hot girls love me
    I’m still the best rapper ain’t hungry nigga I’m greedy 🔥✅

  • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

    That new Closed Casket snippet sounds cool

  • KarTune2.0

    FWA is an album I don’t see the hype in, other than glory London roads, post bail ballin and street chains that for whatever fucked up reason didn’t get on the album

    • Jake Sharma #Khosta’sDad #4-0

      I think it’s a solid album tbh, only a handful of average songs

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Living Right goated

  • Giraffe Boy

    good read

    we need to get birdman back in charge of wayne’s career and get mack out of the picture

  • KarTune2.0

    Wayne could really flood the game with good music if he wanted to but iono the politics of the shit

    • Tha Martian 👑

      The politics are , fat maine won’t let him .

  • YoungMoneyhandgun

    I think it’s absolute bullshit that not a single rapper or celebrity came to the defense of Wayne when he spoke his mind about what’s going on. Everyone wants to attack him when they clearly didn’t listen to anything the man said. Instead, you’re the same as Hitler if you don’t call for and support domestic terrorism in the streets.

  • SMOKE ME SOME LOUD AND POP ME SOME PERCS

  • YoungMoneyhandgun

    People forgot about God Bless Amerika

    • LMAO

      Because he wasn’t really talkin bout shit. He think he was

  • King Slime Thugger

    You ain’t from here we need verification
    Rocks is so big I’m wearing A glacier
