Royce Da 5’9″ Explains Why It’s Easy To Forget Lil Wayne Is “One Of Our Greats” [Video]

Royce Da 59 Explains Why Its Easy To Forget Lil Wayne Is One Of Our Greats

Royce Da 5’9″ recently chopped it up with HotNewHipHop for an interview in their “12 Days Of Christmas” series.

Around the 34:25 mark of their conversation, Royce explains why you can never compare Drake to Lil Wayne and why Wayne is so important to us all:

“Yeah, I mean, he [Lil Wayne] does numbers because he’s one of our greats. But because of his journey, it’s easy to forget that. It’s easy to lose sight of that. And it’s never been put in perspective properly. It’s never been broken down and placed in front of you the proper way what he has contributed. Like nobody really repeats that enough. It’s not enough people going, Oh, well, you know, he gave us a Drake and Nicki. Nobody says that, they just go: ‘Drake, look at Drake, he’s so handsome. Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake.’ You know because Drake has you in awe of his greatness. But Wayne is a different level of greatness.”

“So it’s like, you can’t compare him [Drake] to Wayne. It’s hard to compare him to Wayne because Wayne’s like catching charges and shits happening to distract you, but you don’t realize how important Wayne is unless you know what you’re looking at. You don’t realize how important Cash Money Records is because of the other things that overshadow what they are. You know, like, it’s crazy. It’s crazy. It’s so many other things now.”

Young Thug Recalls First Meeting Lil Wayne & How He Was Ignored

Young Thug is the special guest on episode 93 of Gillie Da King and Wallo267‘s weekly “The Million Dollaz Worth Of Game” podcast.

In a sneak peek of their conversation, which you can watch below, Gillie asks Thugger about the first time he met his idol Lil Wayne to which Thug says Wayne ignored him.

“The first day that nigga didn’t goddamn dap me up. Tried me. That nigga tried my pimping… left me hanging.”

I’m sure everyone is well aware of the problems that went on with Weezy and Thugger a few years back, such as Tha Barter 6 project, but I think it’s fair to say their beef is over now especially after Thug was featured on No Ceilings 3!
