Lil Wayne is going to be honored at the Recording Academy Honors during GRAMMY 2023 Week on February 2nd, which will be presented by the Black Music Collective at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

The second annual Black Music Collective event that is sponsored by Amazon Music and Google Pixel Phone will be taking place a few days before the 65th annual Grammy Awards, and they will also be celebrating other a few other honorees that include: Dr. Dre, Missy Elliott and Sylvia Rhone.

Weezy is set to receive a Recording Academy Global Impact award for his professional and personal accomplishments in the music industry to date. The CEO of the Recording Academy, Harvey Mason Jr., had the following to say:

“I am so thrilled to honor and celebrate these four giants in the music industry. Last year’s inaugural event was such a highlight during GRAMMY Week and now with Dre, Missy, Wayne and Sylvia there to pay tribute to this year, it’s definitely going to be another night to remember. I continue to be proud of the work of our Black Music Collective as it’s a vital part of what we do here at the Academy.”

Lil Wayne Plays A Game Of Never Have I Ever With American Eagle

Lil Wayne takes part in another conversation with American Eagle that was filmed at his private indoor TRUKSTOP skate park in Miami back in November, 2019. For this interview, Wayne plays a game of “Never Have I Ever” with the clothing brand, which is something he has never played before.

During the game, Weezy discloses if he has ever sung in the shower, if he has ever had stitches, if he has ever sneaked into a party, if he has ever said “I love you” to someone and regretted it, if he has ever felt like an R&B singer, if he has ever lost an award that he cared about, if he has ever forgot words to songs while performing live, if he has ever watched a reality or true-crime show on TV, if he has ever been on two dates in 1 day, and if he has ever received the wrong advice.

The Best Rapper Alive also revealed he learned how to slide into DMs while overseas, he came up with the song “How To Love” after serenading someone, his favorite surprise a fan moment was appearing at a bar mitzvah, he would really love to go to Nigeria and Egypt, and told the story of the very first time that he rode a motorcycle. You can check out Tunechi play “Never Have I Ever” below, enjoy!
