Throwback Thursday: Scans Of Lil Wayne’s Cover Story For The Source Magazine’s April 2008 Issue

Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For The Source Magazine April 2008 Issue

I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2008 issue of The Source magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today, which took place during a recording session on his tour bus for “Let The Beat Build” and “Lollipop” off Tha Carter III.

In his interview, Weezy spoke on his recording process, ghostwriting for Dr. Dre, being born to rap, why he is the best rapper alive, and shared his thoughts on people saying he is doing too many drugs.

“Everybody talking ’bout ‘the boy on too much drugs, Baby need to take him to rehab’ and all this shit. I want you to know one thing: a junkie can’t do what the fuck I do. Can’t no drug, can’t no bitch, can’t no money faze me. I am the ultimate high. It ain’t what I’m on, it’s what I do, and making great music is what the fuck I do.”

Tune also talked to C. Vernon Coleman II about playing the guitar, believing every album he has put out is a classic, his daughter Reginae Carter, owning all of his publishing and masters, and more!

Jae Millz Recalls Lil Wayne Giving Him A Recycled Verse For “Holla At A Playa” At First [Video]

Jae Millz Recalls Lil Wayne Giving Him A Recycled Verse For Holla At A Playa At First

On episode 28 of The Bootleg Kev Podcast, special guest Jae Millz discussed everything from first meeting Lil Wayne to being signed to Young Money Entertainment.

In a clip from their interview, Millzy told the story of how he hit up Tunechi to record a feature for his “Holla At A Playa” single back when he had no record label deal to which Tune replied back to Millz asking him to go to his studio.

After Lil Wayne recorded the verse that night and charged Jae nothing for it, the Harlem rapper’s brother noticed Wayne had rapped this verse on another song before. This is why Weezy rapped the “Millz had to tell me to stop recycling verses and since I don’t write it, I recite it in cursive” line when he recorded a new verse the following night.

Also during their conversation, Jae Millz revealed to Bootleg Kev that he signed to Young Mula not too long after the “Holla At A Playa” remix, as well as recalled his reaction to when Wayne played him the “Lollipop” song for the very first time. You can check out what Millzy said in the video below and be looking out for more parts from the interview to be posted on LilWayneHQ.com soon!

The RIAA Update Certifications For 7 Albums & 23 Singles By Lil Wayne

The RIAA Update Certifications For 7 Albums & 23 Singles By Lil Wayne

It’s about time! Lil Wayne‘s team have finally updated his certifications with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

I have listed the new Tunechi plaques for his albums and singles after the jump below. With “Lollipop” now being at 8x Platinum, I think it has a huge chance to be Tune‘s very first Diamond record.

PS: There has also been an image going around on social media with these new Weezy RIAA certifications, but there are 3 mistakes on it. I don’t know about you, but I hate how people rush to create things for likes and retweets without focusing on getting the correct information first. Then people will retweet without getting the facts themselves and spread more fake news around!

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?
