Fat Joe Talks Witnessing Lil Wayne Come Up With His Verse On DJ Khaled’s “We Takin’ Over” & Says All New Rappers Owe Wayne A Favor [Video]

Fat Joe Talks Witnessing Lil Wayne Come Up With His Verse On DJ Khaled We Takin Over & Says All New Rappers Owe Wayne A Favor

For episode 253 of Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” series, special guest Fat Joe sat down with DJ Akademiks and Nadeska to speak on various subjects that you can check out below.

At the 46:30 mark of their conversation, Joey Crack discussed Lil Wayne killing him on DJ Khaled’s “We Takin’ Over” single, called Wayne the “best rapper on earth at that time”, and told a story of what Weezy‘s recording process was like for his verse on “We Takin’ Over“, which included him standing in front of some big speakers at The Hit Factory and coming up with “I am the beast, feed me rappers or feed me beats” line.

Joe also mentioned that he owes Tunechi so much for teaching him how to work as rappers in his era don’t work as hard as the new millennium rappers and said that he used to always think he had to keep on working himself as he knew Tune would be somewhere working.

Later on in the interview at the 51:30 mark, Fat Joe shared his thoughts on Lil Wayne‘s current situation with Birdman, as well as pointed out that all these new rappers owe Wayne a favor as they all rap exactly like him, but not as good.

Joey Crack even revealed that he loves Mr. Carter as a person, called him a true friend (which is rare in the music industry), and says Weezy is very intelligent, plus misunderstood as people will look at him and see the dreads and tattoos, but that’s not who he truly is!

Throwback Thursday: Lil Wayne & Young Money Perform Their “How We Do (Remix)” [Video]

It’s been a quiet day today with Lil Wayne news, so I decided to do a one-off “Throwback Thursday” post here on LilWayneHQ.com. In the video above, you can watch a rare video of Young Money performing their “How We Do” remix on their tour bus and at a show from when the group was just Weezy F Baby, Mack Maine, Boo and Curren$y.

I know most of you have all seen them “Young Money on Tour Bus” videos, but I am pretty sure you wouldn’t have seen this video. Wayne also talks at the beginning of the clip saying he has no beef with Game, 50 Cent or G-Unit after people thought he did when Tunechi spat this line: “I ain’t got no Lamborghini doors on that Escalade, I’mma just go get the Lamborghini instead”.

Watching this video reminds me of back in the days when I used to play the shit out of this “How We Do” remix, because let’s be honest, they all destroyed that beat!
