Lil Wayne Talks Tha Carter 5, Retirement, Hot Boys, Music & More In An Unpublished Interview

Back in early 2015, we saw Lil Wayne on the front cover of NYLON Guys magazine’s December 2014/January 2015 issue and read his cover story. Over a year later, the full unpublished interview that Jeff Weiss did with Wayne in Miami has surfaced online.

Weezy chatted about a lot of things including Tha Carter V, Mannie Fresh having 2 beats on the upcoming album, always listening to his Tha Carter albums, recording one of them overseas, retirement, and weed helping his creativity.

He also spoke on if jail changed him in any way, suffering from seizures, “Georgia Bush“, his favorite subject in school, Hot Boys, his favorite rapper of all time, religion, what he shares in common with Kobe Bryant, skateboarding, what he hopes people who listen to C5 will take away from him as an artist, and plenty more.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson Meets Lil Wayne To Ask Him About Hurricane Katrina & 911

Yesterday, Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock met Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. aka Lil Wayne inside a studio.

If you are wondering why they met up, it is because Johnson is currently shooting a series with his Seven Bucks Productions business about how iconic artists and their music has been impacted by historical events.

Weezy revealed to The Rock about how he got creative inspiration from events such as Hurricane Katrina, which destroyed his hometown New Orleans, and 9/11 as he was in New York City for when the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened.

The actor and semi-retired professional wrestler also mentioned that he has been a huge fan of Tunechi since the Hot Boys days, which is pretty cool!

Shanell Speaks On Lil Wayne’s “Rebirth” Album Delay

Shanell Speaks On Lil Waynes Rebirth Album Delay

With the frequent delays of Lil Wayne‘s Rebirth album and an unconfirmed release date, SOHH spoke with Young Money’s Shanell aka SNL, who penned “Prom Queen,” about the project’s unknown release.

Claiming the album will bring something new to the game, Shanell also said Weezy‘s creativity has forced the album’s delay.

“It ‘does’ exist and it’s incredible in my eyes,” Shanell promised. “I really think it shows another side of Wayne and Young Money because everybody’s on it. Everybody’s been able to express somewhat an alternative side of themselves so it’s gonna be interesting, it’s going to be different. There’s a lot of rapping, but there’s a lot of other stuff. I just think the world is ready to hear some different music. He’s a creative person and you can’t rush creativity and as you saw even with Tha Carter 3 album, that was pushed back and pushed back and pushed back but when it came out? It blew up and it was a great album so I would say, you know, good things come to those who wait.”
