“I haven’t heard the album. I’ll probably never hear the album.”

On Nicki Minaj:
“I’m not satisfied with anything she’s done. I believe she can do a whole lot more, and I believe she will do a whole lot more. It’s not shocking, and it’s not surprising. It’s quite fitting. But other than that, it’s nowhere near the end.”

On dealing with the tabloids:
“You don’t deal with it. You deal with life. You deal with what’s really going on and what’s really real—that’s your four kids, that’s your mother, that’s your family, that’s the people around you. You don’t deal with what people are saying.”

Lil Wayne Covers VIBE Magazines October-November Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of VIBE Magazine‘s October/November issue, which will hit newsstands soon. You can read some excerpts from Weezy‘s interview in the magazine here (talks about maybe doing a collabo project with Rick Ross) and here (speaks on dissing Jay-Z). Below, you can read a couple more parts from his interview were he talks about looking at Drake as competition and if hip hop influenced the riots in England back in August.

VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?

LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not just a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.
