For the tenth anniversary of Tha Carter III on June 10th, Billboard asked a few of the people involved with the classic Lil Wayne album to speak all about it.

You can check out everything what they all had to say below. My favorite story has to be Banner revealing how he originally created “La La” for the film Shrek, but Wayne was like: “Fuck Shrek! I want that!”

Yo Gotti Speaks About Lil Wayne’s Verse On The “Errrbody” Remix, Confirms It Is Recent

Yo Gotti Speaks About Lil Wayne Verse On The Errrbody Remix, Confirms It Is Recent

After premiering the official “Errrbody” remix yesterday, the website Noisey also asked Yo Gotti about how he got Lil Wayne to appear on it.

On the remix, Wayne kicks things off with some crazy energy, sounding like his mixtape days. How’d you get that kind of verse from him?
Man, that Wayne verse is killer. I got that verse from him when we were out on the Drake Vs. Wayne Tour. You know, I think there was just so much good energy out there, so many people coming out there. And one thing he always said in his show is that he made classic records. I think this is a classic Lil Wayne verse.

As you can read, the verse is not that old at all and there is a high chance it was only recorded in September (last month). Also, please don’t be fooled by that Wayne Instagram page that has a lot of followers, because it is 100% not ran by him or anyone on his team.

What are your thoughts on Gotti‘s comments about the Tunechi verse being a classic? Do you agree with him?
