Tyga Discusses How Lil Wayne Made Him Into The Person He Is Today, Being Mad He Wasnt On Every Girl & More

Tyga recently sat down with Ebro Darden for a one on one interview with Beats 1 radio to promote his latest album, Legendary.

During their conversation, which you can watch after the jump below, Ty revealed it was Lil Wayne who helped him grow into the person that he is today from his influence, as well as his work ethic.

“Wayne, he kinda like, he helped me grow into this person and really just inspired me and mentored me through the years. He signed me when I was 17. I was over there when he was doing Carter III so, that whole process, I had somebody to look [up] to as far as like, this is how I should do it. I should be in the studio every day. This person’s doing it. I should be doing shows… you know what I’m saying? I had guidance in a way. Just putting him on the beginning of the album is legendary. After all the drama, all the shit that he’s been through, label stuff, me, and still come out on top…”

T-Raww also mentioned that he put his Tune feature at the beginning of his Legendary album, because he is the actual legend. The former Young Money artist even explained how “Bed Rock” came together after first having hooks from Ne-Yo and Omarion, why you always have to be ready with verses when in the studio with Weezy, and being mad that he wasn’t on “Every Girl“!

Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz recently stopped by Shade 45 radio station in Atlanta to chop it up with DJ Drama and Sarah Vivan on their “Streetz Iz Watchin” show. Like Sarah pointed out at the beginning, this interview is rare because Mr. Carter doesn’t do radio anymore.

During their conversation, Weezy and Tity Boi spoke on their “TIDAL X: ColleGrove” show at The Tabernacle, sports, their ColleGrove project, why they named it what they did, hoping to release more songs that they recorded together which didn’t make the album, dropping projects with release dates and not digitally, and plenty more. Chainz even revealed why he did not join Young Money when Tunechi asked him to in 2007.

Tune also talked about hearing 2 Chainz‘ “Dedication” song that was dedicated to him for the first time, being from a generation of trying to be the best rapper, not liking this new culture we are in right now and is happy to not be a part of it, how he thinks the definition of “success” has changed, not remembering any of the Dedication mixtapes, why he created Young Money Sports, how he feels to see his Young Money artists succeed, the Samsung commercials he has starred in, and Jay Z still being a mentor to him.

You can listen to part 1 of the interview after the jump below. Part 2 will be released soon. Wayne also confirmed Dedication 6 with Drama is happening and they may release it as an album instead of a mixtape!
