Kevin Gates Thanks Lil Wayne For Motivating Him [Video]

Kevin Gates Thanks Lil Wayne For Motivating Him

Kevin Gates recently sat down with Sway Calloway for an interview to promote his new project, Luca Brasi 3, which was released on the same day as Tha Carter V.

During their conversation, Gates reflected on the time that Lil Wayne threatened to stop him from signing to any other record label if he didn’t sign a deal with Young Money Entertainment.

You can watch the Louisiana rapper share the story of what happened when he sat down at a table with Weezy, Mack Maine and Fee Banks, who was his manager at the time, after the jump below.

Even though he mentioned that it was the “scariest moment” of his life and remembers Tunechi say things like: “I’mma eat you”, Kevin shouted out Tune for his negotiation tactics as it ended up motivating him.

The two of them must be cool with each other now, because Wayne has shouted out Kevin Gates on his “Bugatti” freestyle off Dedication 5 and even tweeted out a link to his “Perfect Imperfection” song, which is also one of my favorite tracks from Gates!

Fee Banks Discusses The Sqad Up Days, Lil Wayne’s Stepfather Rabbit Being His Uncle, Flow, “L.A.T” & More

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!

While at the 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, Georgia on September 20th, Bossip caught up with Young Thug for an interview, which you can watch below.

During this interview, Thugger spoke on calling his homies “baby”, “hubbie” and “lover”, if he has beef with Kevin Gates, the Ferguson situation, and confirmed that he has unreleased music featuring Lil Wayne, as well as Yo Gotti and Lil Boosie.

Birdman will be releasing a collaboration mixtape with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan called Rich Gang: The Tour Part 1 on September 29th, so maybe the Thug and Weezy collabo will appear on this project!
