Lil Skies Takes A Quiz On His Idol Lil Wayne [Video]

Lil Skies Takes A Quiz On His Idol Lil Wayne

Lil Skies recently appeared on Genius‘ “The Genius Test” series to take a quiz on one of his biggest influences in music – Lil Wayne, which you can watch below.

At the start of the video, the Pennsylvania-born rapper called Tunechi “the G.O.A.T.” and revealed how Tune influenced him to be himself in his music. If you recall back to last year, Skies paid homage to Wayne with his “A Milli“-inspired music video for “Welcome To The Rodeo“.

Some of the questions that Lil Skies got right included finishing the lyrics off from “6 Foot 7 Foot“, which artist is not signed to Young Money, how old Mr. Carter was when he first recorded under the name of Baby D, what was the title of the Destiny’s Child single that Weezy appeared on, and more.

Skies got a total of 76% on this quiz and some of the questions which he got wrong were: the title of Lil Wayne‘s debut studio album, which DJ hosted the Dedication mixtape series, what project Wayne released exclusively on TIDAL, and listing as many Weezy and Drake songs that he could in under 15 seconds!

“From somebody who’s independent… I know how much of a monster he could be if he was doing it himself.”

The former Young Money artist also added that Tunechi has “gave his life” to skateboarding, mentioned Tune stays in the studio until 10:00AM, and answered “that’s all we do” when asked if they will ever work together again. Check out everything he said below!

Montana Of 300 Praises Lil Wayne, Talks About His Remixes & Freestyles

Montana Of 300 recently sat down with DJ Smallz for a one on one interview. In their conversation, the Chicago rapper revealed Lil Wayne is one of his favorite rappers and hearing his “Upgrade U” freestyle off Da Drought 3 for the first time blew him away “mentally”, as well as “motivated the shit” out of him.

Also throughout the interview, which you can check out after the jump below, Montana spoke on Tunechi numerous times and admitted to not hearing all of Dedication 6 just yet, but he is planning on sitting down to listen to it as “an artist”, because Tune is one of the only rappers left who has a different way of thinking outside of the box.

The Chicago rapper even mentioned that no one appreciates real lyricism anymore and the increase of “mumble rap” has stopped the amount of remixes and freestyles from being recorded. For examples, Montana used Weezy‘s “A Milli” and “6 Foot 7 Foot” songs by explaining how no mumble rapper could go and remix them and not actually rap about anything as remixes have always been lyrically better than the original!
