Emmanuel Maduakolam from HYPEBEAST Radio‘s “MIC/LINE” series chopped it up with Lil Wayne while promoting his new Young Money collection with fashion brand American Eagle on the rooftop of New Design High School in Manhattan on July 15th.

During their conversation, Weezy spoke on his new clothing line, what drew him to collaborate with American Eagle, being “embarrassed” but also “very grateful” for Tyga’s “Lightskin Lil Wayne” music video, motivation, not having a favorite album of his own, the latest song he records will always be his new favorite song, being excited for his Funeral album, sports, and shared advice for new music artists.

Tune also revealed that the night he won 4 GRAMMY Awards is the most fun he has had so far in his career (but he cannot remember it), he will not stop recording and releasing mixtapes even though he believes tapes are not that important in hip-hop anymore, why he remixes other artist’s beats on his mixtapes, and Young Mula will always drop compilations in the future.

You can listen to the full interview, which even included Tunechi mentioning Tyga is still on YM and that the Funeral title of his new album does not mean what you think it does, after the jump below!

Lil Wayne No Ceilings Mixtape Coming To Streaming Platforms

Good news! Lil Wayne‘s classic mixtape, No Ceilings, will finally be coming to music streaming services, such as Spotify and Apple Music, this year.

According to someone who works closely with Cortez Bryant and Wayne‘s ex-road manager, Jamil Davis revealed on social media that “Tez has assured me that it’s going to happen this year” when talking about No Ceilings dropping on streaming platforms.

“Cortez Bryant heard the fans y’all. The greatest mixtape of all time is coming to streaming services! I can’t say the date but Tez has assured me that it’s going to happen this year! IT ONLY MAKES SENSE!”

As this Halloween (October 31st) marks the 10-year anniversary of No Ceilings, you would guess that this is when Tune‘s team plan to release it on streaming services, which is also similar to what Drake did with his So Far Gone mixtape on its 10-year anniversary.
