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“!

Reminder: BET Awards 2009 Is On Tonight!

BET Awards 2009 Is On Tonight!

Here is a reminder Young Moneyians; the BET Awards 2009 are on tonight at 8PM EST/PST.

Jamie Foxx will be hosting the show and there will be performances from Beyonce, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown and of course Young Mula Babbbbyyyy. I’m not sure if all of the YM crew will be there, but Gudda and Mack have said on Twitter that they are definitely going to be there.

Drake is another person who will be there, but I am not sure if he is performing on his own or with Young Money or even doing both!

Rumors are Lil Wayne won’t be there, but I am not 100% sure of that, so lets just keep our fingers crossed that he is there tonight.

I also know a lot of tonight’s show will be dedicated towards Michael Jackson.

Don’t forget and enjoy ❗ 😉

Edit: It looks like Lil Wayne will be there, because BET have just sent this picture over which can be seen here – http://mypict.me/show.php?id=6gKf. They also say “Young Mooooooollllaaahhhh Baaaaaabbbby! I wonder what HE’LL be doing tonight at the 2009 BET Awards??????”. So, will Weezy really be there and do a surprise performance? – I really hope so 😀
