Calboy Reveals What Advice Lil Wayne Gave Him To Stay Relevant For A Long Time

Calboy Reveals What Advice Lil Wayne Gave Him To Stay Relevant For A Long Time

Calboy recently chopped it up with HipHopDX to speak about his relationship with Lil Wayne after Wayne had reached out to him on Instagram, which he nearly missed.

“What’s crazy about the Wayne situation is he reached out to me on Instagram. That’s when I felt like: ‘Man, I’m lit. Wayne reached out to me.’ He was like: ‘Yo, you fire, shorty. What’s the situation like?’ But I didn’t see his DM for like four, five months, bro. It’s just sitting in my DMs, and I didn’t see it and it’s a DM from Wayne [laughs].”

After Calboy discussed how himself and Tunechi built up a connection from there, he then went on to talk about Tune‘s influence on him:

“We was just talking about all type of stuff. He was going through the legal situations before he got pardoned by Trump, so I’m like: ‘Man, I’m sending my prayers to you, bro. Blessings. Keep your head up.’ He’s like: ‘Oh, I definitely need them, bro.’ He just wanted to see what type of person I was, and we just locked in from there. Every time I heard a Wayne project, I’m like fixing to go to the studio. Like that man turns you up like: ‘No, I got to go rap, bro. This man going crazy.’ That was my whole entire life just watching him snapping.”

The Chicago rapper also disclosed some of the advice that Weezy had gave to him about staying relevant long-time, as well as recalled Mack Maine telling him Mr. Carter needs two different assistants, due to his insane work ethic!
