Playboi Carti Says He Deals With His Music Leaking By Watching Lil Wayne Documentaries

Playboi Carti Says He Deals With His Music Leaking By Watching Lil Wayne Documentaries

After recently revealing it was Lil Wayne who influenced him to freestyle all of his music, Playboi Carti has praised Wayne once again in a new interview.

For his cover story with Inked magazine, Playboi spoke on how he took inspiration from Weezy to cope with having his music leak in 2019:

“At this point, to keep myself sane, I just go home and watch Lil Wayne documentaries and see how he went through all this sh*t. I used to be one of those fans downloading his music on Limewire and sh*t, because I was a diehard. And he went platinum the first week off this sh*t.”

Of course Carti is talking about how Tunechi had a huge amount of music leak in the buildup to his Tha Carter III album in 2008, which then made Tune record a whole new C3 that ended up selling a million copies in the first week!

Lil Wayne Wanted To Stop The Release Of Da Drought 3 To Change The “My Flow Is Nasty Like C-Y-Philis” Lyric Because Of A Spelling Mistake [Video]

Lil Wayne Wanted To Stop The Release Of Da Drought 3 To Change The My Flow Is Nasty Like C-Y-Philis Lyric Because Of A Spelling Mistake

First thing’s first with this interview, all of the blogs are currently reporting that Lil Wayne‘s “Weezy F Baby and the F is for Fenomenal” lyric was a mistake and he wanted to change it when he found out he had spelled the word “Phenomenal” wrong. I fully believe this is wrong. Even though Cortez Bryant says this was the lyric, you can tell he was not fully sure.

When you work out what else Tez says about the bar, such as Tunechi wanting to stop the release when he found out how to spell the word correctly and that it was too late as it had already been put out – “Yes” with Pharrell was actually a leak and has never been officially released. Also the next line after the “Phenomenal” one uses wordplay on “typo” to show Tune knows exactly what he did.

While they had just been speaking about the Da Drought 3 project, I think we can all fairly agree that the lyric Cortez was thinking about was “My flow is nasty like c-y-philis” off the “Ride For My Niggas” aka “Sky Is The Limit” song. If you didn’t know, “cyphilis” is actually spelled like “syphilis“.

Anyway, in this conversation with Andrew Barber that you can watch in full below, Bryant also discusses Tha Carter III Sessions, Wayne‘s mixtape run, how he plans to add the rest of Wayne‘s tapes to streaming platforms, how it has been managing Wayne‘s career (including being a DJ for him), Tha Carter album series, noticing the first commercial shift was the feature on Destiny Child’s “Soldier” single, Wayne becoming a “God” in New Orleans after the Sqad Up tapes, releasing The Leak EP to give Wayne more time to record a whole ‘nother C3 album, and much more.

Another conflicting issue with this interview is the “I Feel Like Dying” convo. Tez calls it his one of his favorite Weezy songs, but reveals they could never drop it officially or perform it as concerts, because they could never get the sample cleared and says they even received an injunction over it. However, the publishers of the song that was sampled (“Once” by Karma) have said on Twitter that this information is incorrect and they would love to clear the track and see it released. So… who is lying?

Tez also reveals why he doesn’t think Wayne will ever do a Verzuz battle (says Wayne is an introvert), how album leaks happen, birthday plans, and how he missed out on managing Rae Sremmurd even though they were handed to him on a silver platter, due to the big lawsuit against Cash Money Records!

Drake & Lil Wayne Recall Their Songs Leaking In The Past, Listening To “Lollipop” On The Bus With Kobe Bryant & Announce A New Song

Drake & Lil Wayne Talk About A New Collaboration, Their Songs Leaking In The Past, Listening To Lollipop On The Tour Bus With Kobe Bryant & More

During episode 2 of “Young Money Radio” last night, one of the special guests that called in to speak with Lil Wayne was none other than Drake.

They spoke about Drizzy‘s father Dennis Graham, his son Adonis who Wayne says he can’t wait to meet, Tunechi‘s boys Facetiming celebrity females, the new Dark Lane Demo Tapes project, and how a lot of Tune‘s music got leaked from getting his car washed. The two of them also recalled the night Weezy played “Lollipop” for Drake and the late Kobe Bryant on his tour bus while getting angel wings tattooed.

Towards the end of their conversation, Drizzy Drake revealed him and Wayne will have another collaboration on the way as he is sending over some new music “by mid-week or maybe Monday night”! I wonder if this could appear on the deluxe edition of Funeral, or the 6 God album that is dropping in the summer of this year?
