Q-Tip Calls Lil Wayne One Of His Favorite Rappers, Says He Is An Ill Lyricist

Q-Tip recently took part in an interview with Noisey and during their conversation, he had some nice words to say about Lil Wayne:

“I love Wayne. I think he’s a fucking beast. He’s an ill lyricist. He’s a prodigy. I love to do stuff with him. And that’s my boy, too. We talk sports and all of that shit. Yeah man, he’s acutely intelligent. Highly intelligent, skilled. He’s just got so much soul. I could go on and on about him. He’s one of my favorites, as an MC, as a visionary—like, he’s just dope. He’s just so dope. He’s fucking brilliant… he’s just a cool motherfucker, man. He really is. He’s a special guy. And I really love, like, Tha Block Is Hot, 500 Degreez, all that early stuff, too.”

The two of them have previously collaborated on “Renaissance Rap” and “Thank You“. What are your thoughts on Tip‘s praise for Weezy?

During their conversation, Daniel explains what he likes about Weezy (and it’s not his lyrics, style, lifestyle or attitude), how Tune is the “new generation” of New Orleans after he grew up working with The Neville Brothers (a New Orleans group from the 1970s to the 1990s), and borrowing a few things from Wayne.

You can what Daniel Lanois said about Weezy F Baby after the jump below! Considering how he is good friends with U2, I wonder if Lanois worked on that Tunechi collaboration with Bono that is still unreleased?

Yo Gotti Speaks About Lil Wayne’s Verse On The “Errrbody” Remix, Confirms It Is Recent

Yo Gotti Speaks About Lil Wayne Verse On The Errrbody Remix, Confirms It Is Recent

After premiering the official “Errrbody” remix yesterday, the website Noisey also asked Yo Gotti about how he got Lil Wayne to appear on it.

On the remix, Wayne kicks things off with some crazy energy, sounding like his mixtape days. How’d you get that kind of verse from him?
Man, that Wayne verse is killer. I got that verse from him when we were out on the Drake Vs. Wayne Tour. You know, I think there was just so much good energy out there, so many people coming out there. And one thing he always said in his show is that he made classic records. I think this is a classic Lil Wayne verse.

As you can read, the verse is not that old at all and there is a high chance it was only recorded in September (last month). Also, please don’t be fooled by that Wayne Instagram page that has a lot of followers, because it is 100% not ran by him or anyone on his team.

What are your thoughts on Gotti‘s comments about the Tunechi verse being a classic? Do you agree with him?
