Turk Tells The Story Of Lil Wayne Catching Pubic Lice & Passing Them On To Toya Again

Turk recently chopped it up with DGB for an “Off The Porch” interview that you can check out below.

In their conversation, Turk shared old stories from the early Cash Money Records days, as well as talked about going on tour with the Ruff Ryders, Lil Wayne going to school with a bulletproof vest and gun, violence in New Orleans, the legacy of the Hot Boys group, going to jail for a shootout with the police, suing Cash Money, Wayne‘s alien tattoo on his arm, and much more.

The YNT founder also revealed him and Tunechi had serious thoughts about leaving Cash Money and signing to either Diddy (Bad Boy) or Master P (No Limit), and told the story once again about how the two of them caught crabs (pubic lice) from two Houston sisters before Tune then passed them on to Antonia “Toya” Johnson!

On January 31st, Lil Wayne made another appearance on the live show of “Skip And Shannon: Undisputed” in Miami, Florida to chop it up with Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe and Jenny Taft.

At the start of their conversation, Tune spoke about Funeral, how he wanted to carry on the Rebirth album legacy by dropping this new album, what impact he wants to see from Funeral, having a 24-second tribute for Kobe Bryant on the project, turning in a total of 52 songs for 24 to be picked, and not knowing what “sleep” is.

Throughout the interview, Weezy also discussed the Cowboys, Kobe Bryant‘s death, how he thinks the Los Angeles Lakers will dedicate the rest of the season to Bryant, expecting LeBron James to go even harder, not being offended by Doc Rivers‘ recent quote about the Clippers and Kobe, Packers’ Aaron Rodgers having the best Super Bowl LIV performance since 2006, and more.

Birdman Guarantees We Will Get Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album In 2018

Birdman Guarantees We Will Get Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album In 2018

In a recent sit-down interview with Rap-Up, Birdman discussed Lil Wayne‘s upcoming Tha Carter V album and Wayne‘s legacy by comparing him to Tupac Shakur.

While talking about C5, Baby revealed that he has heard a few songs off the album and confirmed it will definitely be released this year, but it’s on Weezy when exactly he wants it to drop.

“Without a doubt, we’ll get that [Tha Carter V] this year. That’s on Tunechi [an exact release date], whatever he want do, but I’m guaranteeing you gon’ get it this year. I’ve heard a few [of the songs off C5], but I think, he is the best ever to me. A lot of success come from under his umbrella. Just him being him and I think it’s gonna be the biggest album of 2018, one of them. Without a doubt. It’s gonna be well worth the wait.

“They only have one Wayne and you only have one Tupac. Tupac had 100 songs, before that we never knew of that shit. Wayne had 100 features. That shit just not normal, that’s just not normal in our business today. A nigga might not want to hear two features from your ass, let alone 100. Wayne had 100 No. 1s.”

You can watch the #1 Stunna speak on Tunechi‘s legacy and the forthcoming fifth installment of Tune‘s Tha Carter album series in a video below! Do you believe him?
