Lil Wayne Speaks On New Hip Hop, His Porn Star Name & Calls All Of His Old Music Unfinished

For an interview with one of his latest business ventures, Bumbu Rum, Lil Wayne pays a visit to The Bumbu Room to sit down with Sara Gilbert.

“Because I don’t listen to no other hip-hop but my damn self.”

During their conversation, Weezy revealed what bad habits he has, his thoughts on the “once a cheater, always a cheater” saying, if he could ever date a girl after she has been with his friend first, if he has any guilty pleasure music, what his porn star name would be, and if Stephen A. Smith is always right and never wrong about anything.

“Every song that I ever put out was unfinished. I can’t listen to whatever songs I have out until I put it on a setlist for my show. That’s when I have to listen the song because I have no idea what the words are. That’s the only time I got back and listen to it because simply I’m working on other stuff.”

Tunechi also mentioned he “loves” this new direction that hip-hop has took, he listens to no other rappers except for himself, and he doesn’t remember the words to any of his old music, which he then also called every old song of his “unfinished”. You can check out the interview below!

Skip Bayless Explains More About A Good Deed Lil Wayne Did To Help One Of His Best Friend's Son Beat Cancer At A Young Age

Back in May, Skip Bayless first mentioned that Lil Wayne did a good deed for one of his best friends Craig Humphreys’ son, Sam Humphreys, who was battling testicular cancer at the young age of 21-years-old by going out of his way and giving him a pep talk for support.

After appearing on “UNDISPUTED” last month, Skip thanked Wayne for appearing on the show between concerts on his current tour with Blink-182 and for helping Sam beat cancer. He also added that Weezy gave Sam VIP treatment at his Los Angeles show on August 8th and gave him a shout out which ended in him getting a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd.

In other news, Lil Wayne also gifted the hots of “UNDISPUTED” (Skip Bayless, Jenny Taft and Shannon Sharpe) with some special gifts for allowing him to be on the sports show so often – a bit of bling. You can see a picture of Wayne and Sam Humphreys backstage at the L.A. concert above and see the videos of Bayless giving a heartfelt thank you to Tunechi, as well as showing off the gifts from Tune below!
