Pharrell Shares A Story Of Lil Wayne Taking Him To A Gangsta Club In New Orleans + Talks Wayne vs. Pusha T Beef [Video]

Pharrell Shares A Story Of Lil Wayne Taking Him To A Gangsta Club In New Orleans, Discusses Wayne vs Pusha T Beef

Pharrell Williams recently sat down with N.O.R.E. aka Noreaga and DJ EFN for an interview on the latest episode of their “Drink Champs” podcast.

At the 1:04:30 mark of their conversation, Pharrell shares a story of Lil Wayne taking him to a club in New Orleans, Louisiana one time that he says “was the most gangsta shit”. He mentions it was “white tee central” and all 3,000 people in attendance had a gun, which made him feel very uncomfortable.

Later on around the 1:10:00 mark, the Virginia Beach music artist was asked about his thoughts on the Wayne vs. Pusha T beef and says it didn’t make him happy at all. You can check out Pharrell‘s full convo on “Drink Champs” below.

Lil Wayne Wanted To Stop The Release Of Da Drought 3 To Change The “My Flow Is Nasty Like C-Y-Philis” Lyric Because Of A Spelling Mistake [Video]

Lil Wayne Wanted To Stop The Release Of Da Drought 3 To Change The My Flow Is Nasty Like C-Y-Philis Lyric Because Of A Spelling Mistake

First thing’s first with this interview, all of the blogs are currently reporting that Lil Wayne‘s “Weezy F Baby and the F is for Fenomenal” lyric was a mistake and he wanted to change it when he found out he had spelled the word “Phenomenal” wrong. I fully believe this is wrong. Even though Cortez Bryant says this was the lyric, you can tell he was not fully sure.

When you work out what else Tez says about the bar, such as Tunechi wanting to stop the release when he found out how to spell the word correctly and that it was too late as it had already been put out – “Yes” with Pharrell was actually a leak and has never been officially released. Also the next line after the “Phenomenal” one uses wordplay on “typo” to show Tune knows exactly what he did.

While they had just been speaking about the Da Drought 3 project, I think we can all fairly agree that the lyric Cortez was thinking about was “My flow is nasty like c-y-philis” off the “Ride For My Niggas” aka “Sky Is The Limit” song. If you didn’t know, “cyphilis” is actually spelled like “syphilis“.

Anyway, in this conversation with Andrew Barber that you can watch in full below, Bryant also discusses Tha Carter III Sessions, Wayne‘s mixtape run, how he plans to add the rest of Wayne‘s tapes to streaming platforms, how it has been managing Wayne‘s career (including being a DJ for him), Tha Carter album series, noticing the first commercial shift was the feature on Destiny Child’s “Soldier” single, Wayne becoming a “God” in New Orleans after the Sqad Up tapes, releasing The Leak EP to give Wayne more time to record a whole ‘nother C3 album, and much more.

Another conflicting issue with this interview is the “I Feel Like Dying” convo. Tez calls it his one of his favorite Weezy songs, but reveals they could never drop it officially or perform it as concerts, because they could never get the sample cleared and says they even received an injunction over it. However, the publishers of the song that was sampled (“Once” by Karma) have said on Twitter that this information is incorrect and they would love to clear the track and see it released. So… who is lying?

Lil Wayne Models The BAPE x UGG SS19 Campaign [Photo Shoot + Interview]

Lil Wayne Models The BAPE x UGG SS19 Campaign

A Bathing Ape and UGG have partnered up together for their new spring/summer 2019 campaign and grabbed Lil Wayne for the face it.

At a mansion in Miami back in November, 2018, Tunechi participated in a photo shoot for BAPE and UGG‘s new collaboration. He had the following to say about working with the two brands:

“It’s an honor cause BAPE is one of the clothing lines that I still remember saving my money to buy. I still remember making sure nobody else I seen in my city got my hoodie. Now, they got me involved with it? Curren$y was into BAPE. He rocked it for real. But as far as what got me into it, I think just seeing it on Pharrell and being like: ‘What is that colorful camouflage? I need that.'”

“I was one of them who’d set out in them when they were saying it was only for girls. I’d step out in them and kick your day in your face with ’em.”

The line for the SS19 campaign that will be available at the end of this month includes three UGG footwear styles (the Classic Mini – $350, Neumel – $350, and Tasman – $275), a sheepskin Mouton Coat – $3,500, and a pair of mitten gloves – $180, which have all been designed with BAPE‘s famous camo print.

In April, Wayne will also collaborate with the two fashion brands again when A Bathing Ape and UGG release their second campaign that will include a sheepskin slide and sneaker. You can check out plenty pictures captured by Neil Favila of Tune modelling this first campaign below!
