Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne I Get Crazy & Gotta Go Hard Are Now Available On All Streaming Platforms

At midnight on Friday, Nicki Minaj re-released her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape to all digital streaming platforms for the first time ever after it originally dropped 12 years ago.

As you should already know, the project includes two collaborations with her Young Money boss Lil Wayne – “I Get Crazy” and “Gotta Go Hard“, as well as the new “Seeing Green” collab that features Drake too.

Recording engineer KY also revealed an interesting fact about the “Gotta Go Hard” song: “Wayne recorded his verse in Miami in his condo and that’s him playing the guitar at the end. He was on the balcony looking out at the ocean while he played.”

Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For The Source Magazine April 2008 Issue

I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2008 issue of The Source magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today, which took place during a recording session on his tour bus for “Let The Beat Build” and “Lollipop” off Tha Carter III.

In his interview, Weezy spoke on his recording process, ghostwriting for Dr. Dre, being born to rap, why he is the best rapper alive, and shared his thoughts on people saying he is doing too many drugs.

“Everybody talking ’bout ‘the boy on too much drugs, Baby need to take him to rehab’ and all this shit. I want you to know one thing: a junkie can’t do what the fuck I do. Can’t no drug, can’t no bitch, can’t no money faze me. I am the ultimate high. It ain’t what I’m on, it’s what I do, and making great music is what the fuck I do.”

Tune also talked to C. Vernon Coleman II about playing the guitar, believing every album he has put out is a classic, his daughter Reginae Carter, owning all of his publishing and masters, and more!
