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!

Fee Banks Discusses The Sqad Up Days, Lil Wayne Stepfather Rabbit Being His Uncle, Flow, LAT & More

I posted Mannie Fresh’s interview with Thedo and MAQ on their “DaTakeOver” podcast yesterday, and now we can listen to another 1-hour interview “DaTakeOver” guys did; this time with one of Lil Wayne‘s homies since day one – Fee Banks.

Fee spoke on how he and Lil Wayne first met, Rabbit aka the guy who Tunechi calls his father being his uncle, the Sqad Up days, working with Kevin Gates, being inside the studio with Tune as he wrote and recorded 10,000 Bars, Young Money artist Flow, how Wayne‘s first impression was when he first met the Esho Hero as he is like a Weezy clone, Birdman, and plenty more.

Lil Wayne‘s longtime right hand man also confirmed that the L.A.T (Loyalty Amongst Thieves) collaboration project from Wayne, Flow, Gudda Gudda and HoodyBaby is on the way, as well as that Flow has an upcoming single featuring Mr. Carter which will catapult his career, but Banks wants the Esho Hero to record a new verse on it before it’s released and he can’t as he’s currently locked up. This is more than likely the “Killerz On My Team” track!
