Drake Recalls Always Wanting To Be As Important As Lil Wayne, Discusses His Work Ethic & Confirms He Is Not Directly Signed To Young Money Any More

For a surprise on Christmas Day, RapRadar and TIDAL released a brand new 2-hour interview with Drake that took place at his amazing new home in Toronto, Canada.

At the start of their conversation, Drizzy revealed that his goal at first was to be as important as his “mentor” Lil Wayne and that he does not think anyone in music before or after will ever have the same work ethic as what Wayne has.

After talking about Tunechi‘s “most insane work ethic”, the 6 God then recalled witnessing Tune record 4 – 5 classics in one night and seeing Kobe Bryant walk in on the tour bus during his very first meeting with Weezy to get an early release of Tha Carter III on an iPod.

Later on in the interview, Drake mentioned Lil Wayne will always be one of his favorite music artists, how a lot of things changed when he went to jail in 2010, how Wayne doesn’t listen to no other artists when he is in album mode, and confirmed he is not signed to Young Money any more.

You can check out Drizzy Drake‘s full conversation with Elliott Wilson and B. Dot in the video below, which also includes him speaking on Kanye West, Pusha T, Meek Mill, Serena Williams, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Tyler The Creator, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Young Thug, and much more!

Daniel Lanois Speaks On Why He Likes Lil Wayne, Calls Him The New Generation Of New Orleans

Daniel Lanois, who is a producer, artist, guitarist and songwriter from Canada that is mainly known for working a lot with U2 and Willie Nelson, recently spoke to Noisey about being a fan of hip-hop and especially Lil Wayne.

During their conversation, Daniel explains what he likes about Weezy (and it’s not his lyrics, style, lifestyle or attitude), how Tune is the “new generation” of New Orleans after he grew up working with The Neville Brothers (a New Orleans group from the 1970s to the 1990s), and borrowing a few things from Wayne.

You can what Daniel Lanois said about Weezy F Baby after the jump below! Considering how he is good friends with U2, I wonder if Lanois worked on that Tunechi collaboration with Bono that is still unreleased?
