Throwback Thursday: Scans Of Lil Wayne’s Cover Story For Vibe Magazine’s 2006 Issue

Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For Vibe Magazine 2006 Issue

Similar to last week, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2006 issue of Vibe magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today.

In an interview with Benjamin Meadows-Ingram for the mag, Weezy discussed everything from how difficult it was to work with other producers on Tha Carter II instead of Mannie Fresh, how much of an influence JAY-Z is on him, how close he came to signing with Roc-A-Fella, and if he dissed T.I. on his “Best Rapper Alive” song.

You can check out scans from Tunechi‘s cover story below that also includes him talking about the Hot Boys members dissing him, joining Boyz N Da Hood, if he is Blood affiliated, studying Psychology at the University Of Houston, how his relationship with Trina is different than other relationships he has been in, New Orleans, if he dissed 50 Cent and Nas on “You Don’t Know” off Da Drought 2, and much more!

Just like last week, I have decided to do another #ThrowbackThursday post here on LilWayneHQ.com, so if you would like to see me make this a weekly thing on this website, please let me know in the comments section below.

In today’s throwback clip, which you can check out below, Lil Wayne can be seen giving an interview to SMACK on his tour bus for their iconic street DVD series. This part appeared in SMACK DVD Volume 13 and it was filmed in 2006 after the release of Wayne‘s Tha Carter II album.

During their conversation, Weezy (who was rocking a purple BAPE zip-up hoodie) spoke on T-Streets thriving on smacking people, Trina, speaking to JAY-Z about signing to his record label after Birdman gave him the go-ahead, his beef with Juvenile, signing deals with Reebok and Billionaire Boys Club, his loyalty for Baby, and more!

“Dude may of dissed me or whatever, but I get paid. So when you gettin’ paid, you can’t really look at it. Now if I was hurtin’ it might be a murder or somethin’, but I’m gettin’ paid”

Lil Wayne Confirms He Is A Member Of Jay Z’s Roc Nation Team [Video]

Lil Wayne Confirms He Is A Member Of Jay Z Roc Nation Team

Since the end of 2016, Lil Wayne has basically been hinting and his people have been confirming that he will be signing a deal with Jay Z and Roc Nation after he leaves Cash Money Records.

Now during a concert at the Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in Butler County on April 10th, Wayne revealed once again that he is a member of the ROC team before throwing up the ROC hand sign.

I wasn’t going to post this clip (see below) straight away as I will be posting footage from all of the “Kampus Krash Tour” shows once it ends tonight, but so many people have hit me up asking me to post it like it’s new news even though Weezy has been saying he has signed to the ROC numerous times in the past and at every show.

However, for whatever reason Tunechi is not ready to announce the deal yet, so we will have to keep being patient for that news to surface. He even says in the video “we’ll talk about that later though” after saying “you know I’m a member of that team now”. So please don’t be shocked if you see Tune say things about being signed to Roc Nation during his live shows as like I mentioned earlier, he has been doing this since 2016.

PS: If you listen to Lil Twist‘s new mixtape Young Carter, you can hear him rap “Cash Money, see you later, hello Roc-A-Fella” on a song titled “Misfits“!

Is Lil Wayne Planning To Release “Velvet” This Month?

Lil Wayne Planning To Release Velvet This Month

Young Money affiliate Petey, who can be seen on the right in the picture above (or his left), filmed an Instagram Live session last Sunday while he was in Houston for Super Bowl Weekend with Lil Wayne.

During this session, Petey mentioned a few things to do with Wayne, such as he will be dropping Velvet in about 2 weeks, he will be going on a national tour this year (maybe this was what Drake was talking about here), and confirmed Young Mula have signed a deal on paper with Jay Z’s ROC (HoodyBaby also confirmed this news on his own Instagram Live session last month).

As this was all on Instagram Live 8 days ago, could this mean we are about to hear Weezy‘s forthcoming Velvet project next week? With a title like Velvet, you would think it would make sense to release it tomorrow for Valentine’s Day. Let’s wait and see if we will finally get a new project from Tunechi this month!
