“It’s not like me being like, ‘Wayne made me want to rap,’” he says. “No, I was really rapping before I knew about Lil Wayne. Before I was old enough for my momma to let me hear ‘Hot Boy,’ I was already rapping, so he didn’t really make me rap. He gave me different types of swags with rap, and he made me want to be like him when I rap, but he didn’t make me want to rap. But there are n****s in the game who I really made rap. I made Lil Baby rap. I made all these guys rap. I am telling them how to think about this shit.”
