Lil Wayne Talks Mental Health, Therapy, Speaking French, Tha Carter VI & More On Impact By Nightline

Lil Wayne sat down with Megan Ryte for a new episode of “Impact” by Nightline over Lil Weezyana Fest weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In their conversation, Wayne answered questions like who he is in 2022, why he decided to open up about his mental health issues, not needing to go to therapy, speaking French, and bringing out a Make-A-Wish kid (Donavon Fitzpatrick) at his music festival.

“After the show, I was able to look him in his eyes and tell him [Donavon Fitzpatrick]: ‘No matter how many people were out in the crowd tonight, no matter how many people are standing to my left or my right on stage, it was you.'”

Weezy was also asked when is his Tha Carter VI album coming out to which he answered: “I don’t do the dates, because I record so much music. Mack and them… they just know, they just gon’ pick and let me know ‘oh this your new album'”. Mack Maine then appeared and said: “when it’s ready”.
