Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For Murder Dog Magazine 1998 Issue

I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the 1998 Hot Boys issue of Murder Dog magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today.

In his interview, Weezy spoke on Cash Money Records, the Hot Boys, what makes each of the members unique, joining B.G. aka Lil Doogie when he was going by the name of Baby D to create The B.G.z group, their True Story album, and leaving The B.G.z by his mother Cita’s request after he shot himself.

Tune also talked about Lil Slim bringing him to Cash Money, his debut solo studio album Tha Block Is Hot, what made him want to first start rapping, New Orleans, school, his daughter Reginae Carter, having a song called “Fuck The World” even though this was a time when he didn’t curse in his music, losing his daddy Rabbit to some haters, how everything changed for him when Rabbit died, and much more!

Lil Slim Talks Introducing Lil Wayne To Birdman, Cash Money Screwing Him Over & More

Shawn Setaro from The Cipher interviewed Mikel “Lil Slim” Pettis for just over an hour in a podcast last month about Cash Money Records, releasing 3 albums on the record label, introducing Lil Wayne and Juvenile to Birdman, how he first came across Weezy, growing up with Juvie, and plenty more.

If you didn’t already know, Lil Slim was one of the first music artists to be signed with Cash Money before he left the record label, because they also didn’t pay him what he was owed. He even told a few stories in the conversation about how CM took advantage of their New Orleans artists, as well as when he first realized that they are a unreliable business.

During the interview, Slim explained why he decided to introduce a 10-year-old kid to Baby as that was Wayne‘s age at the time. He also revealed the understanding of the meet was so that Tunechi would be Slim‘s artist on his own record label. However, Slim says that Cash Money went and signed Wayne up behind his back, told Tune to stay away from him, and how to this day Wayne still doesn’t know this story.

You can listen to the full conversation after the jump below. Head to the 32-minute mark if you want to go straight to the Mr. Carter questions!
