Royce Da 5’9″ Explains Why It’s Easy To Forget Lil Wayne Is “One Of Our Greats” [Video]

Royce Da 59 Explains Why Its Easy To Forget Lil Wayne Is One Of Our Greats

Royce Da 5’9″ recently chopped it up with HotNewHipHop for an interview in their “12 Days Of Christmas” series.

Around the 34:25 mark of their conversation, Royce explains why you can never compare Drake to Lil Wayne and why Wayne is so important to us all:

“Yeah, I mean, he [Lil Wayne] does numbers because he’s one of our greats. But because of his journey, it’s easy to forget that. It’s easy to lose sight of that. And it’s never been put in perspective properly. It’s never been broken down and placed in front of you the proper way what he has contributed. Like nobody really repeats that enough. It’s not enough people going, Oh, well, you know, he gave us a Drake and Nicki. Nobody says that, they just go: ‘Drake, look at Drake, he’s so handsome. Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake.’ You know because Drake has you in awe of his greatness. But Wayne is a different level of greatness.”

“So it’s like, you can’t compare him [Drake] to Wayne. It’s hard to compare him to Wayne because Wayne’s like catching charges and shits happening to distract you, but you don’t realize how important Wayne is unless you know what you’re looking at. You don’t realize how important Cash Money Records is because of the other things that overshadow what they are. You know, like, it’s crazy. It’s crazy. It’s so many other things now.”

Tunechi also discussed all of these new generation rappers looking like him, this year’s Super Bowl and NBA Championship, why there is no such thing as a next Drake or Nicki Minaj, recording new music with A$AP Ferg and Rich The Kid recently, being influenced to skateboard by Alex Midler, how getting sick on the Ruff Ryders/Cash Money tour was his biggest break, I Am Not A Human Being III album, and much more!

Lil Wayne Sells His Masters For More Than $100 Million

Lil Wayne Sold His Masters For More Than 100 Million

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne‘s former manager Ronald Sweeney has filed a lawsuit against the New Orleans rapper for over $20 million.

Ronald says Wayne hired him back in 2005 to help renegotiate his deal with Cash Money Records, which we know was also another lawsuit that finally got settled in 2018. However, the attorney claims he only got a few payments for his work and is now suing Weezy for the full cut.

In the suit that was filed by lawyer Ed McPherson, Ronald Sweeney also mentions he was asked by Lil Wayne to fire Cortez Bryant in 2018 over a conflict of interest in a legal dispute about who Drake was signed to. After doing so, Sweeney claims Tez and Mack Maine then conspired to cause a disagreement and anger between himself and Tunechi in which it ended with Tune firing the attorney.

The craziest part of this lawsuit is that Wayne sold his masters to Universal Music Group in June of this year for more than $100 million. Ronald Sweeney is using this to say Mr. Carter does have the money to pay him what he is owed.
