Lasanna “ACE” Harris Speaks On Co-Producing Lil Wayne’s “Famous” Off “Tha Carter V” & Wayne’s Influence In Hip-Hop

Lasanna ACE Harris Speaks On Co-Producing Lil Wayne Famous Off Tha Carter V & Wayne Influence In Hip Hop

Lasanna “ACE” Harris recently chopped it up with DJ Booth about co-producing Lil Wayne‘s “Famous” song featuring his daughter Reginae Carter off Tha Carter V and how influential Wayne is in hip-hop.

“Wayne is one of the most influential artists in hip-hop, period, and has birthed so many offspring.”

The producer talked about how he worked on the “timeless” track with Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph and Sam Bruno around the same time that they was working on beats for Nicki Minaj and her The Pinkprint album.

A week after they had mastered “Famous” back in 2014, Tunechi and Birdman had their public fall out, which went on to last over 4 years and left him being very disappointed thinking that the record will never see the light of day.

ACE then revealed he got an e-mail of out of blue from Weezy‘s team a week before the album was due to be released and explained how it feels “to be a part of a historical moment in hip-hop”. You can read everything he said below!

Kevin Gates Thanks Lil Wayne For Motivating Him

Kevin Gates recently sat down with Sway Calloway for an interview to promote his new project, Luca Brasi 3, which was released on the same day as Tha Carter V.

During their conversation, Gates reflected on the time that Lil Wayne threatened to stop him from signing to any other record label if he didn’t sign a deal with Young Money Entertainment.

You can watch the Louisiana rapper share the story of what happened when he sat down at a table with Weezy, Mack Maine and Fee Banks, who was his manager at the time, after the jump below.

Even though he mentioned that it was the “scariest moment” of his life and remembers Tunechi say things like: “I’mma eat you”, Kevin shouted out Tune for his negotiation tactics as it ended up motivating him.

The two of them must be cool with each other now, because Wayne has shouted out Kevin Gates on his “Bugatti” freestyle off Dedication 5 and even tweeted out a link to his “Perfect Imperfection” song, which is also one of my favorite tracks from Gates!
