Lil Wayne Talks Funeral, Tyga, Favorite Song, Dropping More Mixtapes In The Future & Compilations From Young Money

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!

Kobe Bryant Reveals Why Lil Wayne Created A Tribute Song For Him [Video]

Kobe Bryant Reveals Why Lil Wayne Created A Tribute Song For Him

Last month, Kobe Bryant made an appearance on Barstool’s “The Corp” podcast to chop it up with Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez and Dan “Big Cat” Katz.

During their conversation, the former professional basketball player was asked how often does he listen to the “Kobe Bryant” song that Lil Wayne created for him back in 2009.

While answering the question, Kobe also revealed how the Weezy track came together after the 2009 Western Conference Finals where Bryant‘s Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets in six games:

“It was after the Denver series, [Wayne] called me. He was like: ‘Man, that performance just motivated the hell out of me.’ I think it was like game six. He was like: ‘I’mma do a song. Is it okay, can I do a song?’ I was like: ‘alright, cool.’ Man I just thought he was just BS-ing or whatever. Before the Celtics series he sends me the song and I was like: ‘Oh, you were serious.’ Okay, that’s awesome.”

You can watch the former Lakers NBA athlete explain the story of Tunechi‘s “Kobe Bryant” record during the podcast from the 41:45 mark in the video after the jump below! Do you still listen to this tribute song from Tune?

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!

Montana Of 300 Praises Lil Wayne, Talks About “Dedication 6” & Remixes [Video]

Montana Of 300 Praises Lil Wayne, Talks About His Remixes & Freestyles

Montana Of 300 recently sat down with DJ Smallz for a one on one interview. In their conversation, the Chicago rapper revealed Lil Wayne is one of his favorite rappers and hearing his “Upgrade U” freestyle off Da Drought 3 for the first time blew him away “mentally”, as well as “motivated the shit” out of him.

Also throughout the interview, which you can check out after the jump below, Montana spoke on Tunechi numerous times and admitted to not hearing all of Dedication 6 just yet, but he is planning on sitting down to listen to it as “an artist”, because Tune is one of the only rappers left who has a different way of thinking outside of the box.

The Chicago rapper even mentioned that no one appreciates real lyricism anymore and the increase of “mumble rap” has stopped the amount of remixes and freestyles from being recorded. For examples, Montana used Weezy‘s “A Milli” and “6 Foot 7 Foot” songs by explaining how no mumble rapper could go and remix them and not actually rap about anything as remixes have always been lyrically better than the original!
