Lil Skies Takes A Quiz On His Idol Lil Wayne [Video]

Lil Skies Takes A Quiz On His Idol Lil Wayne

Lil Skies recently appeared on Genius‘ “The Genius Test” series to take a quiz on one of his biggest influences in music – Lil Wayne, which you can watch below.

At the start of the video, the Pennsylvania-born rapper called Tunechi “the G.O.A.T.” and revealed how Tune influenced him to be himself in his music. If you recall back to last year, Skies paid homage to Wayne with his “A Milli“-inspired music video for “Welcome To The Rodeo“.

Some of the questions that Lil Skies got right included finishing the lyrics off from “6 Foot 7 Foot“, which artist is not signed to Young Money, how old Mr. Carter was when he first recorded under the name of Baby D, what was the title of the Destiny’s Child single that Weezy appeared on, and more.

Skies got a total of 76% on this quiz and some of the questions which he got wrong were: the title of Lil Wayne‘s debut studio album, which DJ hosted the Dedication mixtape series, what project Wayne released exclusively on TIDAL, and listing as many Weezy and Drake songs that he could in under 15 seconds!

What Went Down At Lil Wayne’s 1st Annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” In New Orleans?

What Went Down At Lil Wayne 1st Annual Lil Weezyana Fest In New Orleans

The 1st annual “Lil Weezyana Fest” took place tonight at Champions Square’s Bold Sphere Music in Lil Wayne‘s hometown New Orleans, Louisiana. If you could not be in attendance, Jay Z’s streaming service TIDAL let anyone with an account watch the full show live as it happened.

Personally this was one of the greatest Tunechi concerts I have ever watched and my highlight was seeing a Sqad Up reunion on stage with Tune rapping his verses from the Sqad Up tapes word for word. He also mentioned throughout the show that he hopes to do a “Lil Weezyana Fest” every single year like how Drake does his “OVO Fest”.

Weezy brought plenty of special guests out tonight including: Drake, Ms. Tee, Big Freedia, DJ Jubilee, Cory Gunz, 5th Ward Weebie, Jake Troth, Shanell, August Alsina, Dizzy, Kidd Kidd, Gudda Gudda, Fee Banks, Curren$y, Mannie Fresh, Mack Maine, Juvenile, Turk, Hood, Euro, Master P and No Limit, and Jae Millz.

It was good to see Wayne take it back and perform songs off his older projects too, such as “Georgia Bush“, “Dedication 2 (Bang Bang)“, “I Miss My Dawgs“, “Kush“, “We Ready“, “Guess Who’s Back?“, “Best Of Me“, “Bling Bling“, “Project Bitch“, and plenty more. The biggest disappointment was when TIDAL had to cut off viewers from watching Drizzy’s set as he is under contract with Apple.

I have listed every song that Mr. Carter performed live at his 2015 “Lil Weezyana Fest” after the jump below. What was your favorite part or parts of the concert? Let me know in the comments section!
