Lil Wayne Chats To 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell & Dustin Poirier For Episode 10 Of “Young Money Radio” [Videos]

Lil Wayne Chats To 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell & Dustin Poirier For Episode 10 Of Young Money Radio

For episode 10 of the “Young Money Radio” show on Apple Music on July 3rd, Lil Wayne chopped it up with 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell, and Dustin Poirier.

Tunechi and Fiddy actually had a conversation for a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes before Tune had to end it as they were going to get cut off. They talked about everything from the early Cash Money tour days, Birdman, Eminem, the culture of hip-hop, BBC (and not the TV network in the UK lol), Mike Tyson, The Game, Meek Mill, Pop Smoke, new rappers copying both of their styles, award shows, and much more. 50 also mentioned “they should expect to see us collaborate” at the end, which is good news as the two of them have not yet to release a song together.

Another interesting story from this week’s episode comes from Naomi, who tells Weezy that she watched him talk to Donald Trump for a good 2 hours at Usher’s birthday party inside the Rainbow Room in New York back in 2006… but of course, he didn’t remember this. You can check out all of these convos in the videos below, which also includes Mr. Carter chatting with Whoopi about who her favorite music artist of all time is (Wayne says his is Anita Baker) and with Dustin about wanting his next UFC fight to be against someone big, such as a Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz!

Lil Wayne Says The White Cop Who Saved His Life Is Also The Same Person Who Locked Up His Father Birdman For Years

Yesterday, Lil Wayne joined Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe as a special guest on their UNDISPUTED sports talk TV show.

While on the show, Tunechi told the story once more about how a white cop he calls Uncle Bob saved his life when he shot himself over mental health issues whereas the black cops all jumped over him looking for the gun. Tune then went on to say that the same white cop Uncle Bob was the one who arrested his “father” Birdman and put him in jail for years.

You can check out Weezy‘s full interview with Skip and Shannon in the video below that also includes him speaking on change coming after the death of George Floyd, his own personal experiences with the police, white people helping with the protests, his team Green Bay Packers, how shocked he was when they drafted Jordan Love, who he thinks the GOAT of the NBA is, Dak Prescott, and much more!

Throwback Thursday: Scans Of Lil Wayne & Birdman’s Cover Story For XXL Magazine’s 2006 Issue

Scans Of Lil Wayne & Birdman Cover Story For XXL Magazine 2006 Issue

For #ThrowbackThursday today, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne and Birdman‘s cover story for the December 2006 issue of XXL magazine, which took place not long after their Like Father, Like Son collaboration album had been released in stores.

In an interview with Jon Caramanica for the mag, Weezy and Baby discussed everything from how they first met each other, why artists such as Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, B.G. and Turk all left Cash Money Records, and how they really felt about that.

You put out the “I Miss My Dawgs” song, and you said it came from a sincere place. The other [Hot Boys] guys said it was some sport of publicity stunt. How did that make you feel?
Fuck them niggas. They should be happy a nigga was still seeing them at that time. I don’t see them no more. Literally. They dead to me, man.

You can check out scans from Wayne and Baby‘s cover story below, courtesy of RSA, that also includes the two of them chatting about their family-like relationship, the early Cash Money days, relocating to Miami from New Orleans, and much more!
