Taylor Bennett Praises Lil Wayne, Shares A Funny Story About First Meeting Him [Video]

Taylor Bennett Praises Lil Wayne, Shares A Funny Story About First Meeting Him

Taylor Bennett recently sat down with Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez for an interview with Hot 97 on their “Ebro In The Morning” radio show, which you can watch below.

At the start of their conversation, Peter revealed Chance The Rapper had told him during their interview in June that Taylor had spent around 12 hours hanging around with Lil Wayne, because everyone thought he was Chance – as they are brothers.

The Chicago rapper then went on to explain this story more by saying he first met Wayne before Chance did at SXSW and he managed to get backstage at Weezy‘s set from everyone thinking he was Chance, but he then told Tunechi he was Chance‘s brother and so Tune let him hit his blunt.

Before Rosenberg cut Taylor Bennett off as he was discussing Lil Wayne, he did manage to say that Wayne is the most hard-working artist of all time, as well as that him and Chance both love Mr. Carter and grew up listening to his music while naming songs like “Let The Beat Build“, “1 Night Only“, and even the unofficial The Drought Is Over 4 mixtape!

Video & Review Of Lil Wayne Performing In London

In the video above, Lil Wayne performs “Let The Beat Build“, “Comfortable“, and “Mrs. Officer” with Shanell at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, UK. You can view some high quality pictures here, and also check out the review MTV did for this tour:

The initial signs weren’t good for Lil Wayne’s London gigs. The rapper has a reputation as much his for drug use, court appearances and unpredictable behaviour as his music.

Then his European tour dates- including three shows at the Hammersmith Apollo- were postponed from July because of an unspecified ‘illness’.

But watching last night MTV forgot the scandals, rumours and arrests as soon as Weezy ran out (wearing Union Jack trainers) to his bass heavy hit A Milli.

It was clear straight away that the dreadlocked MC was on fairly sober form- interacting with the young crowd, laughing, play-acting and constantly running from one side of the stage to the other.

Pretending to play a guitar for a couple of tracks Wayne proved he’s no Jimi Hendrix. But backed by drummer, DJ, guitar, bass and keys the rock tracks from his forthcoming album The Rebirth (including single Prom Queen) sound promising.

Ultimately though it’s Tha Carter III that sets Lil Wayne apart from the pack- and was deservedly the best selling album of 2008 in the US.

Highlights at this show include Tie My Hands- a lament to his home town New Orleans post-hurricane, and flirting anthem Mrs Officer (“My face on a wanted poster/ I’m wanted by every lady cop all over”).

Kanye produced Let The Beat Build is all too brief and though it’s not his smartest lyric the crowd unsurprisingly love Lollipop.

On Mr Carter Wayne lays claim to be one of the greatest – up there with Biggie, 2Pac and Jay-Z – and on stage tonight with his odd couplets, twisting flow and smile that glistens across the venue it’s hard to argue.

Talking to the audience near the end of the gig he says: “I’m just me and I love you for loving me London.”

Before of course adding “Young Moolah baby!”
