Lil Wayne Praised With His Own Exhibit At The National Museum Of African American Music

Lil Wayne Praised With His Own Exhibit At The National Museum Of African American Music

For his 40th birthday on September 27th, Lil Wayne was honored by the National Museum of African American Music with his own exhibit in Nashville, Tennessee.

Students could attend the NMAAM event, which had live music and virtual voice notes playing from Tunechi, and record themselves singing and rapping along to Tune‘s lyrics in the Rap Booth.

Wayne provided the exhibit with a few of his personal items, such as his “I Am Hip-Hop” award that he received from the BET Awards, a handwritten letter he wrote while in Rikers Island, his “Rap Album Of The Year” award from the GRAMMYs, one of his original Tha Block Is Hot physical albums, and more.

In a statement to VIBE, you can see what both Weezy and H. Beecher Hicks III, who is the President and CEO of NMAAM, had to say about this event below:

Lil Wayne: “I’m very grateful to work with NMAAM and show students how Hip-Hop has been so influential on the culture. Shout out to NMAAM for all the birthday love.”

H. Beecher Hicks III: “We are thrilled to honor and feature Lil Wayne and start our relationship with such a generous donation. On the heels of Mr. Carter expressing his interest in partnering with us, we found out that ten years ago, he became the first male artist to surpass Elvis Presley with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100, with 109 songs. What better way to celebrate his 40th than by commemorating his accomplished career with an exhibit to honor over 25 years of impacting the music we listen to and the multiple genres he has shaped, along with the story we tell here at NMAAM.”

You can check out a personal video from Lil Wayne and some photos from this exhibit, courtesy of a longtime visitor of this website, Zak Robertson, after the jump below. Mr. Carter is also the first hip-hop artist to support the museum and donate his personal items for educational use!

2 Chainz Recalls Informing Lil Wayne He Won A Grammy Award In 2017 As He Had No Idea At The Time

Earlier this year, 2 Chainz was the special guest on episode 122 of Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson‘s “All The Smoke” podcast.

At the 30:00 mark of their interview, Tity Boi explained how Playaz Circle‘s “Duffle Bag Boy” collaboration with Lil Wayne came together, which all started from selling Birdman and Cash Money Records some weed.

During their convo at the 40:00 mark, Chainz talked about receiving his first ever GRAMMY award for Chance The Rapper‘s “No Problem” single featuring himself and Wayne back in 2017. He says it was a blessing, it was himself who got Tunechi on the song, and he was the one who informed Tune they had won a GRAMMY for the collab as he was somewhere skateboarding and had no idea!

Later on in their conversation at 1:06:40, 2 Chainz named his top 5 rappers of all time dead or alive and Weezy was No. 1 in his list. The rest were: Jay Z, Scarface, Andre 3000, and Tupac Shakur plus The Notorios B.I.G. as a whole. You can check out the full video after the jump below!

Robin Thicke Recalls Witnessing A Bank Robbery That Inspired “Shooter” With Lil Wayne [Video]

Robin Thicke Recalls Witnessing A Bank Robbery That Inspired Shooter With Lil Wayne

While on the “The Kelly Clarkson Show” recently, Robin Thicke recalled a bank robbery he witnessed that ended up inspiring his “Shooter” collaboration with Lil Wayne.

Robin tells Kelly Clarkson that when he was 18-years-old, he was inside a bank when some guys with masks and guns entered and robbed the place. He wrote a song about this experience titled “Oh Shooter” for his debut studio album, A Beautiful World.

Years later, Wayne put his own spin on the “Shooter” track and added it to his Tha Carter II album, which Thicke says he ended up getting a Grammy Award for it. However, I think he is getting mistaken with Tha Carter III album. Check it out below!
