Earlier this month on February 2nd, Lil Wayne was honored at the Recording Academy Honors, which was presented by the Black Music Collective during GRAMMY 2023 Weekend in Los Angeles, California.
Inside the Hollywood Palladium, DJ Khaled presented Wayne with a Global Impact Award while Drake gave a funny speech in a pre-taped video.
Weezy also gave his own emotional speech after accepting the award were he recalled his mother Jacida Carter wanting him to have a kid as when he goes on long tours with Cash Money Records, she gets lonely.
“Where I’m from, we don’t get honored.”
At the event, Tunechi received a congratulations from Lil Kim and also enjoyed live performances from 2 Chainz (who performed “Duffle Bag Boy“), Swizz Beatz (who performed “Uproar“), and Tyga (who performed “A Milli“).
Due to not being fully happy with his award speech, Tune recorded another video afterwards were he thanked the GRAMMY Awards themselves, Dr. Dre, Missy Elliott, Sylvia Rhone, Deion Sanders, Drake, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, 2 Chainz, Tyga, Busta Rhymes, Spliff Star, Will.I.Am, Rico Love, the fans, and more.
