Machine Gun Kelly Speaks On Witnessing Lil Wayne Recording Process In Person

Machine Gun Kelly has released a new documentary on Hulu called “Life In Pink” and there is a part in the doc about Lil Wayne.

Inside the documentary, MGK recalls what it was like working with Wayne on his Mainstream Sellout album and witnessing his recording process in person.

“I pressed play on the song, he’s like: ‘is that what we’re doing?’ ‘Yeah.’ He’s like: ‘alright, you guys got time?’ ‘Yeah, for sure.’ He goes in the courtyard, smokes fifteen blunts, he just takes each, his eyes are closed just playing the track over and over again. He comes back in the studio and we can see him in the courtyard, we’re just kinda sitting there amazed, like, that’s the G.O.A.T. forming his thoughts around a track that we made. He comes back in at 5:30 in the morning. He’s like: ‘y’all ready?’ He goes in the booth and he lays his shit like, one time. Just like, one time through.”

Playboi Carti Says He Deals With His Music Leaking By Watching Lil Wayne Documentaries

Playboi Carti Says He Deals With His Music Leaking By Watching Lil Wayne Documentaries

After recently revealing it was Lil Wayne who influenced him to freestyle all of his music, Playboi Carti has praised Wayne once again in a new interview.

For his cover story with Inked magazine, Playboi spoke on how he took inspiration from Weezy to cope with having his music leak in 2019:

“At this point, to keep myself sane, I just go home and watch Lil Wayne documentaries and see how he went through all this sh*t. I used to be one of those fans downloading his music on Limewire and sh*t, because I was a diehard. And he went platinum the first week off this sh*t.”

Of course Carti is talking about how Tunechi had a huge amount of music leak in the buildup to his Tha Carter III album in 2008, which then made Tune record a whole new C3 that ended up selling a million copies in the first week!
