Jae Millz Recalls Lil Wayne Giving Him A Recycled Verse For “Holla At A Playa” At First [Video]

Jae Millz Recalls Lil Wayne Giving Him A Recycled Verse For Holla At A Playa At First

On episode 28 of The Bootleg Kev Podcast, special guest Jae Millz discussed everything from first meeting Lil Wayne to being signed to Young Money Entertainment.

In a clip from their interview, Millzy told the story of how he hit up Tunechi to record a feature for his “Holla At A Playa” single back when he had no record label deal to which Tune replied back to Millz asking him to go to his studio.

After Lil Wayne recorded the verse that night and charged Jae nothing for it, the Harlem rapper’s brother noticed Wayne had rapped this verse on another song before. This is why Weezy rapped the “Millz had to tell me to stop recycling verses and since I don’t write it, I recite it in cursive” line when he recorded a new verse the following night.

Also during their conversation, Jae Millz revealed to Bootleg Kev that he signed to Young Mula not too long after the “Holla At A Playa” remix, as well as recalled his reaction to when Wayne played him the “Lollipop” song for the very first time. You can check out what Millzy said in the video below and be looking out for more parts from the interview to be posted on LilWayneHQ.com soon!

Lil Wayne Reveals Why His Deal With SUPRA Went Wrong During “Sneaker Shopping” [Video]

Lil Wayne Reveals Why His Deal With SUPRA Went Wrong During Sneaker Shopping

Lil Wayne, who was rocking a pair of Prada Camouflage Combat Boots, recently went “Sneaker Shopping” with Joe La Puma at Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbour, Florida for the Season 10 finale of their series.

During their trip, Wayne recalled drawing the Nike “swoosh” and the Adidas “three stripes” on folders back when he was in school, what he wore in Juvenile‘s “I Got That Fire” music video back in 1999, and how his deal with SUPRA in 2012 got messed up because they didn’t want to do what he envisioned (they wanted something to rival Kanye West‘s Yeezy shoe).

Before spending $7773.55 on sneakers, Weezy spoke on his favorite sneakers to skate in, Kendrick Lamar remembering him rocking the Reebok Workout Low shoes when he signed his Reebok deal, deciding what to wear for court-side NBA games, Drake giving him exclusive Jordans, his stylist Marisa Flores laying out between 100-200 pairs of shoes each night for his shows, TRUKFIT, and more.

You can check all of this go down in the video after the jump below. Tunechi also revealed he has not been to a shopping mall in over 15 years! Did you like the Dior sandals, Balenciaga trainers, Versace slippers, and Dolce & Gabbana sneakers that Tune picked out to buy?
