Throwback Thursday: Scans Of Lil Wayne’s Cover Story For The Source Magazine’s April 2008 Issue

Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For The Source Magazine April 2008 Issue

I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2008 issue of The Source magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today, which took place during a recording session on his tour bus for “Let The Beat Build” and “Lollipop” off Tha Carter III.

In his interview, Weezy spoke on his recording process, ghostwriting for Dr. Dre, being born to rap, why he is the best rapper alive, and shared his thoughts on people saying he is doing too many drugs.

“Everybody talking ’bout ‘the boy on too much drugs, Baby need to take him to rehab’ and all this shit. I want you to know one thing: a junkie can’t do what the fuck I do. Can’t no drug, can’t no bitch, can’t no money faze me. I am the ultimate high. It ain’t what I’m on, it’s what I do, and making great music is what the fuck I do.”

Tune also talked to C. Vernon Coleman II about playing the guitar, believing every album he has put out is a classic, his daughter Reginae Carter, owning all of his publishing and masters, and more!

Similar to last week, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2006 issue of Vibe magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today.

In an interview with Benjamin Meadows-Ingram for the mag, Weezy discussed everything from how difficult it was to work with other producers on Tha Carter II instead of Mannie Fresh, how much of an influence JAY-Z is on him, how close he came to signing with Roc-A-Fella, and if he dissed T.I. on his “Best Rapper Alive” song.

You can check out scans from Tunechi‘s cover story below that also includes him talking about the Hot Boys members dissing him, joining Boyz N Da Hood, if he is Blood affiliated, studying Psychology at the University Of Houston, how his relationship with Trina is different than other relationships he has been in, New Orleans, if he dissed 50 Cent and Nas on “You Don’t Know” off Da Drought 2, and much more!
