 Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne Discuss Tha Carter 6, Booties, OVO Fest & Much More

The return of Nicki Minaj‘s “Queen Radio” show happened last week on August 11th and Lil Wayne was one of the special guests.

During their conversation, Wayne was asked what he prefers out of big butts or little butts and if he thinks he shaped this generations desire to have girls with big booties.

Nicki called Weezy her “idol”, “inspiration” and “friend”, as well as asked him to send her something to jump on for the upcoming Tha Carter VI album. She even asked him when the project was going to come out, but he didn’t give that information away.

Also in their interview (listen below), Tunechi spoke on how he felt to see Young Money reunite on stage together at OVO Fest and what he would change if he could do it all over again (says he doesn’t live with regrets). Nicki even told Tune he was her first rap crush and she used to pray for his work ethic!

Drake & Nicki Minaj Perform Live With + Praise Lil Wayne At 2022 OVO Fest

After originally getting postponed from August 1st, the Young Money reunion at Drake‘s 2022 OVO Fest took place from the Budweiser Stage in his hometown Toronto, Canada on August 6th.

During the show, Drizzy Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz, and Mack Maine performed “Bedrock“, “Up All Night“, “Moment 4 Life“, “The Motto“, “HYFR“, “Every Girl“, and many more of their songs live together.

There was some trolling from Drizzy before Tunechi‘s set as he had a message of “Unfortunately, Lil Wayne had issues at the border…” pop up on the big screen before it then said “Luckily, Drake runs the border.” Tune also dedicated his “Steady Mobbin’” song to the people at the Canadian border.

While on stage, Nicki got on the mic to thank Weezy: “I wanna thank this man right here please, this is the biggest best genius in the world, there will never be another Lil Wayne. I love you Wayne.” Before then Drake told Mr. Carter: “These are your children by the way [*pointing to himself and Minaj*], look at your kids boss, these are your children.”

Not long before the concert wrapped up, the 6 God shared a story of when Lil Wayne first gave him $30,000 early on his music career, which changed the next 6 months for himself and his mother. He went on to say the following to Wayne:

“That was the most important amount of money I’ve ever made in my life today. You’re the most important man to each and one of us. This is me by the way, this is your son. Make some noise for the greatest rapper of all time. You also changed music forever, you are the most talented rapper to ever touch a microphone bar none.”
