Tyga was the latest guest on Mike Tyson‘s “Hotboxin’” series were he chopped it up with the heavyweight boxing legend himself and DJ Whoo Kid to promote his new album, It’s Too Loud I Can’t Hear You, due to be released on November 18th.
At the start of their conversation (watch below), T-Raww chatted about first getting his big chance in the music industry when Lil Wayne signed him at 17-years-old, which was during Tha Carter III era. He discussed Wayne taking him on tour, as well as how being around Weezy at that time was his “artist development”.
Later on in their interview, Ty spoke on getting his hustle and work ethic from Lil Wayne, how Wayne does not talk much, working with Young Money back in the day, being a big fan of Tunechi plus how Tune and “prime Eminem” are his favorite rappers, planning to be at the YM reunion show in Toronto before Drake caught COVID-19, Lil Twist, riding around New Orleans with Birdman in his Bugatti, and much more!
“I learned uh, the hustle because like Wayne’s not a person that he didn’t he don’t really like talk not much at all much you know what I’m saying he’s not very like… Yeah, he’s very like, you know so you got to kind of like just pick up on his ways and how he moves, and you know, I feel like the work ethic I learned from him you know…”
