Hopsin Says He Took An L For His Past Hate On Lil Wayne + Calls Him An Amazing Rapper

During a recent Instagram Live session for his fans (watch below), Hopsin addressed his hate on Lil Wayne in the past.

The Los Angeles rapper says there has always been Wayne songs he loved even back when he made negative comments, as well as that he “can confidentially say Lil Wayne is an amazing rapper” and “the metaphors and punchlines are definitely really good”.

Hopsin goes on to admit he “took an L” for his comments and “was definitely sleeping” on Weezy, but reveals it was all because he was caught up in a wave of hating on anything mainstream at the time.

Monsta Beatz recently chopped it up with Thedo and MAQ on episode 89 of his “DaTakeOver” podcast (who have chatted with Fee Banks and Mannie Fresh in the past) for an hour, which you can listen to below.

During their conversation from the 32:40 mark, the New Orleans production duo revealed Lil Wayne is the most mainstream music artist that they have worked with. If you didn’t already know, they produced Wayne‘s “I’m Good” featuring Lucci Lou off No Ceilings, as well as “Vizine“.

The producers also spoke about receiving a phone call from Universal Music Group about having a beat on Tha Carter V; however, the song was pulled last minute. They even added that they produced Migos’ upcoming “Fantastic” collabo with Tunechi, which we heard a snippet for in 2015, and discussed producing Curren$y’s “442” track featuring Tune and Birdman!

The Next Single From Lil Wayne Tha Carter 5 Album Will Be A Radio Super Smash

It looks like the next single from Lil Wayne‘s upcoming Tha Carter V album will be a mainstream one that the radios will love! Fabian, who is the person that mixes all of Weezy‘s songs and features, uploaded a picture to Instagram earlier today with the following caption:

Uh-oh did I just receive the files for Wayne’s radio super smash that you all have been waiting for???? #c5 #carter5 #hurtfeelingstofollow #brappppppppp

I’m not too sure, but I believe Fabian has been mixing all of the tracks for C5. He also did work on all of the other previous Tha Carter albums too, so he is definitely a credible source.

Who’s hyped?
