Calboy Reveals What Advice Lil Wayne Gave Him To Stay Relevant For A Long Time

Calboy Reveals What Advice Lil Wayne Gave Him To Stay Relevant For A Long Time

Calboy recently chopped it up with HipHopDX to speak about his relationship with Lil Wayne after Wayne had reached out to him on Instagram, which he nearly missed.

“What’s crazy about the Wayne situation is he reached out to me on Instagram. That’s when I felt like: ‘Man, I’m lit. Wayne reached out to me.’ He was like: ‘Yo, you fire, shorty. What’s the situation like?’ But I didn’t see his DM for like four, five months, bro. It’s just sitting in my DMs, and I didn’t see it and it’s a DM from Wayne [laughs].”

After Calboy discussed how himself and Tunechi built up a connection from there, he then went on to talk about Tune‘s influence on him:

“We was just talking about all type of stuff. He was going through the legal situations before he got pardoned by Trump, so I’m like: ‘Man, I’m sending my prayers to you, bro. Blessings. Keep your head up.’ He’s like: ‘Oh, I definitely need them, bro.’ He just wanted to see what type of person I was, and we just locked in from there. Every time I heard a Wayne project, I’m like fixing to go to the studio. Like that man turns you up like: ‘No, I got to go rap, bro. This man going crazy.’ That was my whole entire life just watching him snapping.”

The Chicago rapper also disclosed some of the advice that Weezy had gave to him about staying relevant long-time, as well as recalled Mack Maine telling him Mr. Carter needs two different assistants, due to his insane work ethic!

Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For Ozone Magazine December 2006 Issue

After seeing scans from the February 2006 issue last year, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the December 2006 issue of Ozone magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today.

In an interview with Eric Perrin for the mag, Weezy discussed everything from being signed to Cash Money Records, if he believes good emcees are born or made, Jay-Z, staying loyal to Cash Money, his relationship with Birdman, why he thinks he has been so successful, and being an official member of Boyz N Da Hood.

Young Buck recently said some pretty bold statements in an interview about you and Baby supposedly kissing on a tour bus.
Who is that? I don’t know who you’re talking about.

Okay, so do you have any messages for all the haters who have made different allegations about you recently?
Stop hating, get money.

You can check out scans from Tunechi‘s cover story below that also includes him talking about creating the song “Georgia… Bush“, New Orleans, the I Can’t Feel My Face joint project with Juelz Santana, sex, what advice he would give to girls who want to get him in bed with them, Trina, the freakiest text message he has ever received off a girl, Solange, HIV and AIDS, planning to create a Louisiana Bayou Blast mixtape, and much more!
