Lil Wayne Chats To Dr Fauci, Dr Dre, Kevin Hart, Tory Lanez, Benny The Butcher & Conway The Machine For Episode 6 Of Young Money Radio

Episode 6 of Lil Wayne‘s “Young Money Radio” show took place on May 29th on Apple Music and for this week’s guests, he had Dr. Anthony Fauci (Head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), Dr. Dre, Kevin Hart, Tory Lanez, and Griselda’s Benny The Butcher and Conway The Machine.

At the start of this week’s radio show, Tunechi paid tribute to George Floyd, who was murdered by cops in Minneapolis, and sent condolences to his family. Tune also revealed he will be releasing music videos for the deluxe edition of his Funeral album soon and as it is currently Mental Health Awareness Week, he shared a story of how he shot himself as a kid just so he could be heard as no one ever listened to him.

For interviews with his special guests, Weezy chatted to Dr. Fauci all about COVID-19, Larry Kramer, aids and more. He chopped it up with Dr. Dre about why he named his album 2001 when it was released in 1999, both being big fans of Anderson .Paak, how he balances his personal life and work, Kobe Bryant, and shares his thoughts on the horrible situation of George Floyd, which nearly made him not appear on “YM Radio” as he says it didn’t feel right.

Lil Wayne then spoke with Kevin Hart about the recent situation in Minneapolis, his new book “The Decision”, how he is doing after his car accident, and more. Before the episode came to an end, Wayne talked with a few of the features on his new Funeral deluxe album – Tory Lanez, Benny The Butcher and Conway The Machine. You can check out videos of all of this after the jump below!

While talking at Midem 2019 in France, which you can watch below, Ferrigno discussed how platforms like Netflix are “dying to get more hip-hop content” and this would be a good thing for Tunechi to share his story on.

Tez then shushed Matt up and said it is coming within a year (so it should be this year as the interview was done in 2019). He also revealed the show would be a scripted television series based on the “Gone ‘Til November” journal that Weezy wrote while locked up in Rikers Island back in 2010.
