Lil Wayne Explains Why American Football Is The Number One Team Sport

Before the Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans NFL game last Thursday, Sports On Prime took a look into the mind of The Greatest Fan Alive – Lil Wayne.

When asked what would he choose out of American football and rap music, Tunechi went with the answer “football” and explained his reasons why.

Lil Wayne Reveals His Top 5 Rappers, Why He Made Best Rapper Alive, Working On Old School Hip-Hop Beats For His Next Project & More

Lil Wayne was the special guest on episode 1 of DJ Khaled‘s brand new podcast dubbed “The First One“, which premiered on Amazon Music.

During their 45-minute conversation, Weezy spoke on his very first rap group with B.G. called The B.G.z, going by the name Baby D, first meeting Birdman, his “Block Burner” song, being influenced by Missy Elliott in the Hot Boys days, and more.

Around the middle of the discussion, Tunechi revealed he has been sent 3 old-school hip-hop beats to spit over for his next project (presumably No Ceilings 3) and 2 of them are: “Ether” by Nas and “Takeover” by Jay Z. However, after a quick Google, Tune realized he already did a freestyle over “Ether” on SQ1.

Wayne also talked about his favorite verse, his top 5 rappers, his top 5 anthems, the “We Takin’ Over” verse, creating the “Best Rapper Alive” song off Tha Carter II album, his The Suffix mixtape that was hosted by Khaled, and confirmed there will be another album in Tha Carter series.

Lil Wayne Chats To 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell & Dustin Poirier For Episode 10 Of Young Money Radio

For episode 10 of the “Young Money Radio” show on Apple Music on July 3rd, Lil Wayne chopped it up with 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell, and Dustin Poirier.

Tunechi and Fiddy actually had a conversation for a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes before Tune had to end it as they were going to get cut off. They talked about everything from the early Cash Money tour days, Birdman, Eminem, the culture of hip-hop, BBC (and not the TV network in the UK lol), Mike Tyson, The Game, Meek Mill, Pop Smoke, new rappers copying both of their styles, award shows, and much more. 50 also mentioned “they should expect to see us collaborate” at the end, which is good news as the two of them have not yet to release a song together.

Another interesting story from this week’s episode comes from Naomi, who tells Weezy that she watched him talk to Donald Trump for a good 2 hours at Usher’s birthday party inside the Rainbow Room in New York back in 2006… but of course, he didn’t remember this. You can check out all of these convos in the videos below, which also includes Mr. Carter chatting with Whoopi about who her favorite music artist of all time is (Wayne says his is Anita Baker) and with Dustin about wanting his next UFC fight to be against someone big, such as a Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz!

After paying tribute to the 12-year anniversary of his iconic Tha Carter III album, Wayne spoke with Pain about how their “Got Money” collaboration came about, both of them being on “The Masked Singer“, and working on T-Wayne 2 with hopes of another song like “Damn, Damn, Damn“. Duval then came on the show to discuss his 43rd birthday, making music, his upcoming comedy special, and more.

Tunechi also chatted to Dame D.O.L.L.A. about the recent protests, police brutality, his shoe deal with Adidas, who his influences in hip-hop growing up were, memories of Kobe Bryant, and tease an unreleased song they have together. Noreaga then came on the show to talk about how he and Tune first met, his favorite boxer, Capone, the late Ceelow, Drink Champs, and recall giving Cash Money a bag of guns for their tour bus back when Young Buck was hanging around with them.

“Telling NASCAR to take away the Confederate flag is like telling me to cut my dreads off.”

Lastly, Weezy chatted with his Young Money artist Nicki about his “Tunechi” sign in his studio, how a lot of people told him to not sign a female, taking time off social media, Minaj getting married, and a possible collaboration album from the two. You can watch highlights from all of their conversations in the videos below!
