Missy Elliott Praises Lil Wayne While He Attends Her Private Dinner Party In Las Vegas

Missy Elliott held a private dinner party for the 20-year anniversary of her Under Construction album in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 6th that was hosted by Patron.

To her surprise, Lil Wayne accepted Missy‘s invitation and turned up to the event. You can see more pictures and some footage of Wayne with Elliott after the jump below.

“Lil Wayne you have birthed a whole generation after you and it’s easy for people to acknowledge someone’s GREATNESS when they’re no longer around but I want you to know YOU ARE LEGENDARY no matter who thinks differently YOUR BLUEPRINT is PRESENT! No debate. Y’all guess who rolled up on me to help me celebrate??? I was so shocked because I invited him but I didn’t think he would come and he did. Blessed to Be out with this LEGEND/GAMECHANGER!” – Missy Elliott

As we already know, Weezy is a huge fan of the Virginia music artist and has praised her many times for being one of his biggest creative inspirations in past interviews (see here, here, here, here, here, and here)!

Eminem Praises Lil Wayne For Rapping To Be The Best Rapper Of All Time

Eminem Praises Lil Wayne For Rapping To Be The Best Rapper Of All Time

In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music, Eminem explained his reasons why he doesn’t think there will ever be a best rapper of all time.

Even though he does not really check for favorite MCs lists, Em did say he raps to be the best rapper and this is where he gave praise to Lil Wayne by saying he also does the same:

“I rap to be the best rapper, but I’m not the only rapper who raps to be the best rapper. [Lil] Wayne, [J.] Cole, Kendrick [Lamar], Joyner Lucas. They rap to be the best rapper, and I feel like when you push yourself like that, that’s what I feel like inspires greatness.”

You can check out a clip of Slim Shady saying all of this and the full conversation after the jump below!

Royce Da 5’9″ Explains Why It’s Easy To Forget Lil Wayne Is “One Of Our Greats” [Video]

Royce Da 59 Explains Why Its Easy To Forget Lil Wayne Is One Of Our Greats

Royce Da 5’9″ recently chopped it up with HotNewHipHop for an interview in their “12 Days Of Christmas” series.

Around the 34:25 mark of their conversation, Royce explains why you can never compare Drake to Lil Wayne and why Wayne is so important to us all:

“Yeah, I mean, he [Lil Wayne] does numbers because he’s one of our greats. But because of his journey, it’s easy to forget that. It’s easy to lose sight of that. And it’s never been put in perspective properly. It’s never been broken down and placed in front of you the proper way what he has contributed. Like nobody really repeats that enough. It’s not enough people going, Oh, well, you know, he gave us a Drake and Nicki. Nobody says that, they just go: ‘Drake, look at Drake, he’s so handsome. Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake.’ You know because Drake has you in awe of his greatness. But Wayne is a different level of greatness.”

“So it’s like, you can’t compare him [Drake] to Wayne. It’s hard to compare him to Wayne because Wayne’s like catching charges and shits happening to distract you, but you don’t realize how important Wayne is unless you know what you’re looking at. You don’t realize how important Cash Money Records is because of the other things that overshadow what they are. You know, like, it’s crazy. It’s crazy. It’s so many other things now.”

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!
