For #ThrowbackThursday today, we can watch part 1 of Fuse TV On Demand‘s “Beyond The Music: Lil Wayne” special, which shows behind the scenes of what a day in the life of a 24-year-old Lil Wayne is like.

“I hustle 25/8. Whoever told you there was 24 hours in a day lied to you, whoever told you there was 7 days in the week lied to you; You need to smack ’em in their face when you see ’em.”

Lil Wayne was the special guest on episode 1 of DJ Khaled‘s brand new podcast dubbed “The First One“, which premiered on Amazon Music.

Around the middle of the discussion, Tunechi revealed he has been sent 3 old-school hip-hop beats to spit over for his next project (presumably No Ceilings 3) and 2 of them are: “Ether” by Nas and “Takeover” by Jay Z. However, after a quick Google, Tune realized he already did a freestyle over “Ether” on SQ1.

Wayne also talked about his favorite verse, his top 5 rappers, his top 5 anthems, the “We Takin’ Over” verse, creating the “Best Rapper Alive” song off Tha Carter II album, his The Suffix mixtape that was hosted by Khaled, and confirmed there will be another album in Tha Carter series.

Lil Wayne Chats To 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell & Dustin Poirier For Episode 10 Of Young Money Radio

For episode 10 of the “Young Money Radio” show on Apple Music on July 3rd, Lil Wayne chopped it up with 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell, and Dustin Poirier.

Tunechi and Fiddy actually had a conversation for a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes before Tune had to end it as they were going to get cut off. They talked about everything from the early Cash Money tour days, Birdman, Eminem, the culture of hip-hop, BBC (and not the TV network in the UK lol), Mike Tyson, The Game, Meek Mill, Pop Smoke, new rappers copying both of their styles, award shows, and much more. 50 also mentioned “they should expect to see us collaborate” at the end, which is good news as the two of them have not yet to release a song together.

Another interesting story from this week’s episode comes from Naomi, who tells Weezy that she watched him talk to Donald Trump for a good 2 hours at Usher’s birthday party inside the Rainbow Room in New York back in 2006… but of course, he didn’t remember this. You can check out all of these convos in the videos below, which also includes Mr. Carter chatting with Whoopi about who her favorite music artist of all time is (Wayne says his is Anita Baker) and with Dustin about wanting his next UFC fight to be against someone big, such as a Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz!
