While driving Elliott Wilson around Beverly Hills in his 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan, Ty spoke on how he came up with the “Lightskin Lil Wayne” song and how you never know if you’re going to get a “Lil Wayne verse” or a “Mixtape Weezy” verse when you send him a beat for a feature.

T-Raww mentioned he has never been around a superstar until Wayne signed him as an artist to Young Money, he very much looks up to Tunechi, how Tune is committed to who he is, his message and lyrics, and how he was happy he got “Mixtape Weezy” on his “On Me” song.
