Lil Wayne Speaks On New Hip Hop, His Porn Star Name & Calls All Of His Old Music Unfinished

For an interview with one of his latest business ventures, Bumbu Rum, Lil Wayne pays a visit to The Bumbu Room to sit down with Sara Gilbert.

“Because I don’t listen to no other hip-hop but my damn self.”

During their conversation, Weezy revealed what bad habits he has, his thoughts on the “once a cheater, always a cheater” saying, if he could ever date a girl after she has been with his friend first, if he has any guilty pleasure music, what his porn star name would be, and if Stephen A. Smith is always right and never wrong about anything.

“Every song that I ever put out was unfinished. I can’t listen to whatever songs I have out until I put it on a setlist for my show. That’s when I have to listen the song because I have no idea what the words are. That’s the only time I got back and listen to it because simply I’m working on other stuff.”

Tunechi also mentioned he “loves” this new direction that hip-hop has took, he listens to no other rappers except for himself, and he doesn’t remember the words to any of his old music, which he then also called every old song of his “unfinished”. You can check out the interview below!

“15 years ago I was just Lil Wayne’s best friend, talking to these guys in suits… a challenge! But for one of my first deals, with AT&T, I got them to call their grandchildren and ask if they knew Wayne; the kids hollered, and we got the check!” – Cortez Bryant

“The biggest deal we did was with Lil Wayne and Samsung; it enabled us to surpass iPhone for the duration of the campaign. Wayne didn’t even use Galaxy phones! But authenticity can be built.” – Matt Ferrigno

Kid Buu sat down with XXL a couple of months ago to explain why he deserves to be a 2019 Freshman.

During his pitch, which you can watch below, Buu explained that he is known for being a clone, but he is actually just a clone of Lil Wayne.

He then proceeds to say that he thinks everyone is a clone of Tunechi from their image to the way they talk/rap and everyone who appears on this XXL Freshman series should be paying homage plus respect to Tune.

The Jersey artist also pointed out that anyone who says they aren’t influenced by Lil Wayne are still technically influenced by him, because the rapper who does inspire them was more than likely influenced by Wayne. He even mentioned that Weezy is the Jesus Christ of hip-hop culture and the question is not “what would Jesus do?”, but more like “what would Wayne do?”!
