Lil Wayne Speaks On New Hip-Hop, His Porn Star Name & Calls All Of His Old Music “Unfinished” [Video]

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!

Lil Wayne Talks Funeral Album, New Generation Rappers, Working With American Eagle & More

Pierce Simpson from Complex sat down with Lil Wayne for a one on one interview to promote his new Young Money clothing line with American Eagle, which Cortez Bryant first told us about last month before we then saw a preview of the collection earlier this month.

During their conversation, which you can watch below, Wayne also spoke on what his favorite piece from his new fashion line is, being shocked that American Eagle wanted to work with him, new generation rappers, TRUKFIT, how the last 18 months of his life have been, his upcoming Funeral album, and more.

While discussing Funeral, Tunechi says Tez Poe has a release date for the project, but he doesn’t want to announce it as of right now and so it’s “coming soon”. Tune even explained that he never records music for a specific album; he just records a bunch of songs and lets Tez pick which ones will appear on the certain project. It is very “rare” Weezy is in the “I’m about to go record this album” mode as it has only ever happened once, which was when he was locked up in jail!

Kid Buu Calls Lil Wayne The Jesus Christ Of Hip Hop Culture, Says He & Every Other Rapper Are Clones Of Wayne

Kid Buu sat down with XXL a couple of months ago to explain why he deserves to be a 2019 Freshman.

During his pitch, which you can watch below, Buu explained that he is known for being a clone, but he is actually just a clone of Lil Wayne.

He then proceeds to say that he thinks everyone is a clone of Tunechi from their image to the way they talk/rap and everyone who appears on this XXL Freshman series should be paying homage plus respect to Tune.

The Jersey artist also pointed out that anyone who says they aren’t influenced by Lil Wayne are still technically influenced by him, because the rapper who does inspire them was more than likely influenced by Wayne. He even mentioned that Weezy is the Jesus Christ of hip-hop culture and the question is not “what would Jesus do?”, but more like “what would Wayne do?”!
