Lil Wayne Talks “Tha Carter V”, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne Talks Tha Carter V, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of Billboard‘s Fall issue, which will be available on newsstands September 15th.

For his cover story, Weezy spoke on a lot of things including Tha Carter V, his children, tweeting, 2 Chainz’ wedding, seizures, features, Nicki Minaj, suicide, retirement, greatness, Drake, and more.

One interesting part from the story is that they reveal the outro on Tunechi‘s C5 album will be about attempting suicide and it will sample British R&B singer Sampha’s “Indecision” song:

“When he was 12, Wayne came across a gun in his mother’s house and shot himself in the chest, just missing his heart. In the past, he has called this an accident. But on the new verse he plays, Wayne admits this was a suicide attempt, undertaken after his mother told him he would no longer be allowed to rap. The track, which samples British R&B singer Sampha’s brooding but hopeful 2013 song ‘Indecision’ and will be the album’s outro, was on the original album tracklist, but Wayne added new lyrics this summer, following the suicides of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.’

Also during their conversation, we get confirmation that Young Money Entertainment now solely belongs to Tune, but their distribution deal with Republic Records remains in place. You can check out some excerpts from the interview and pics from the photo shoot below!

We have previously seen some footage of Lil Wayne walking out at Philipp Plein’s Fall/Winter 2016/2017 Menswear fashion show on January 16th, due to technical difficulties with his mic, as well as some pictures of Wayne at the event.

Now we can watch a video (see below) of Tunechi performing “6 Foot, 7 Foot“, “Loyal“, “Truffle Butter“, “Lollipop“, “Mrs. Officer“, and “No Worries” live at the event, which took place at La Fabbrica Del Vapore in Milan, Italy.

This live performance of course took place after Weezy had first walked out at the fashion show, but as we can see he did come back out to perform and put on a show for the people in attendance!

Lil Wayne Throws His Mic & Walks Off Stage Flipping The Bird At Philipp Plein’s Fashion Show In Italy [Video]

Over the weekend on January 16th, Lil Wayne attended the Philipp Plein Fall/Winter 2016/2017 Menswear fashion show at La Fabbrica Del Vapore in Milan, Italy.

Tunechi came out to perform his “John” song live, but due to technical difficulties with his mic, he ended up throwing it in the air and walking off stage while throwing his middle fingers up.

You can watch what happened from various angles in the clip above. The good news is that Weezy came back out to perform more songs live for the people in attendance at the fashion show, so I will post up footage from that this week!
