Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For Vibe Magazine 2006 Issue

Similar to last week, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2006 issue of Vibe magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today.

In an interview with Benjamin Meadows-Ingram for the mag, Weezy discussed everything from how difficult it was to work with other producers on Tha Carter II instead of Mannie Fresh, how much of an influence JAY-Z is on him, how close he came to signing with Roc-A-Fella, and if he dissed T.I. on his “Best Rapper Alive” song.

You can check out scans from Tunechi‘s cover story below that also includes him talking about the Hot Boys members dissing him, joining Boyz N Da Hood, if he is Blood affiliated, studying Psychology at the University Of Houston, how his relationship with Trina is different than other relationships he has been in, New Orleans, if he dissed 50 Cent and Nas on “You Don’t Know” off Da Drought 2, and much more!

Skip Bayless Explains How Lil Wayne Is Involved In His Whip Bayless Nickname, Says They Have A Deep Bond

During the 5th edition of of UNDISPUTED‘s “#SkipRidesTheTrollerCoaster” series, which was filmed poolside in South Beach, Miami, Skip Bayless explains how his nickname went from Drip Bayless to Whip Bayless.

The American sports columnist, author and television personality revealed the name came from when Lil Wayne let him borrow his Lamborghini during Super Bowl LIV Weekend earlier this year after Wayne was gifted it by Your Excellency from his time in Saudi Arabia.

While discussing their relationship, Skip had a lot of nice things to say about Tunechi including how they get closer by the year, they are brothers, they have a deep bond, he loves Tune‘s heart and passion, and how he sometimes wishes he could be Weezy himself!

“I have known Lil Wayne for a long time, we seem to get closer by the year. I know it’s bizarre, I know it’s almost inexplicable, I know it’s almost incomprehensible to some people, but he is my brother and vice versa. I love that mans heart, I love his passion for sports and for music. I wish in a way I could be Lil Wayne and maybe there is a part of him that wishes he could be on UNDISPUTED… We have a deep bond.”
