While discussing their relationship, Skip had a lot of nice things to say about Tunechi including how they get closer by the year, they are brothers, they have a deep bond, he loves Tune‘s heart and passion, and how he sometimes wishes he could be Weezy himself!

“I have known Lil Wayne for a long time, we seem to get closer by the year. I know it’s bizarre, I know it’s almost inexplicable, I know it’s almost incomprehensible to some people, but he is my brother and vice versa. I love that mans heart, I love his passion for sports and for music. I wish in a way I could be Lil Wayne and maybe there is a part of him that wishes he could be on UNDISPUTED… We have a deep bond.”
