Antonio Brown Says Lil Wayne Inspired His New Rap Career

Antonio Brown Says Lil Wayne Inspired His New Rap Career

While in attendance at “The Future Brunch” that was hosted by Kanye West and Jason Lee for Black media outlets last month, HipHopDX caught up with Antonio Brown.

As he is now focused on a career in rap after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in American football, AB discussed being inspired by Lil Wayne and recalled listening to Wayne‘s older mixtapes:

“I remember bumping Lil Wayne’s [Da] Drought and Sqad Up mixtapes. That’s when Lil Wayne was showing you that his craft was for real. I had the same feeling [walking off the field in January].”

Do you think it could happen and would you like to see a collaboration between Antonio Brown and Weezy?

Tory Lanez Meets Lil Wayne For The First Time, Reveals He Is A Super Fan & Is Inspired By Him

A few days ago in Los Angeles, Tory Lanez sat down with J Cruz on Power 106’s “The Cruz Show” to promote his new album, Memories Don’t Die.

At the start of their conversation, Tory discussed meeting Lil Wayne for the very first time, revealed he is a “super Wayne fan”, and mentioned his old Sway freestyles were all inspired by him.

“I love Lil Wayne, no shame in it.”

Lanez also added that he told Tunechi he has some crazy music for him, which he can jump on, as well as did an impression of Tune‘s voice.

The Canadian music artist even admitted that he doesn’t get impressed by meeting a lot of new people. However, Weezy was different as he is someone who has helped him with his craft, because he was one of the first artists who did both singing and rapping. Tory then used “Prostitute Flange” as an example.
