Lil Wayne Talks The Lakers Recent Win, Recording A New Feature For DMX, Why Every Artist Tries To Sound Like Drake & More

After the Los Angeles Lakers won the recent NBA Finals championship, Lil Wayne appeared on the “ALL BALL with Doug Gottlieb” podcast, which you can check out below.

During their 50-minute conversation, Wayne spoke on being a Lakers fan, first meeting the late Kobe Bryant, having some stuff in the works with Kobe before he passed away, his thoughts on LeBron James moving to the Lakers, and how he will be celebrating their latest win by going to the studio.

Weezy also discussed growing up in New Orleans, how his stepfather Rabbit convinced his mother Cita to be a rapper, recording a recent feature for DMX, the recording process for his very first album, his favorite meal that his mom cooks, his favorite sneakers, his half-brother Semaj, buying a Nissan Pathfinder with his very first paycheck, the success of his first solo album Tha Block Is Hot, why so many artists in the music industry try and sound like Drake, the last time he was on stage, and the “colossal” change in how music is downloaded now compared to how it was at the start of his career.

Before his interview with Doug Gottlieb wrapped up, Tunechi recalled his trip to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia at the end of last year and told the story of how he nearly didn’t get into the country, as well as how “Your Excellency” helped him out!

The Original Version Of Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album To Be Released Officially This Friday [Video]

The Original Version Of Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album To Be Released Officially This Friday

To celebrate Lil Wayne‘s 38th birthday and the 2-year anniversary of Tha Carter V, the original version of C5 will be released this Friday (September 25th) as a deluxe edition.

While presenting Tunechi with a 2020 McLaren 720S for an early birthday gift, Mack Maine revealed this news in the car as “Life Of Mr. Carter” played in the background.

However, we can hear one line on “Life Of Mr. Carter” that seems to have been changed (“Or to propose and get I don’t know… I don’t know” to “Or to break hearts and get your heart broken, I don’t know”), so I’m not too sure if there will be many changes from the actual OG version which leaked.

Are you happy with this news? I’m buzzing one of my favorite ever Weezy songs in “Scottie Pippen” aka “Scottie” is getting an official release!

Lil Wayne Says Thank You To Furniture Maker Gib Fortune For Building Him A Custom Green Bay Packers Themed Sofa

A furniture maker from Milwaukee by the name of Gib Fortune has paid tribute to Lil Wayne by creating him a custom-made Green Bay Packers couch.

The green and gold sofa, which includes colorful lighting and space for champagne, took Gib a total of two days to build. His dream is to see Weezy sitting on it in a video:

“I just want to see him in a video sitting on something that I created. It would mean the world to me to see him sitting on a Green Bay Packer sofa with an autographed Packer football.”

While at the Packers vs. Seahawks NFL game on January 12th, Tunechi was shown the couch and did a little shout out to Gib Fortune to say thank you, as well as to say that he can’t wait to get it in his man cave. You can watch both Fortune show off the sofa to FOX6 News and Tune‘s thank you message below!

Lil Wayne Admits To Owning Gold Pistol Found On His Private Jet, Says It Was A Father’s Day Gift

Lil Wayne Admits To Owning Gold Pistol Found On His Private Jet, Says It Was A Fathers Day Gift

According to court documents obtained by the Miami Herald, Lil Wayne has admitted to owning a gold-plated pistol that was found in his luggage on his private jet that got raided at Miami International Airport on December 23rd by federal agents.

After numerous drugs including heroin, ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana, a gold-plated .45 caliber handgun along with bullets and $25,938 in cash was found, Weezy has told the FBI agents and ATF officers that the gun was given to him as a Father’s Day gift.

Tunechi was never charged in the case and the feds allowed him to leave after their search, but if the case ever makes it to a large federal grand jury, then it could cause serious issues for him especially with the fact that Tune is a convicted felon from a weapons case over 10 years ago!
