Lil Wayne Talks “Tha Carter V”, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne Talks Tha Carter V, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of Billboard‘s Fall issue, which will be available on newsstands September 15th.

For his cover story, Weezy spoke on a lot of things including Tha Carter V, his children, tweeting, 2 Chainz’ wedding, seizures, features, Nicki Minaj, suicide, retirement, greatness, Drake, and more.

One interesting part from the story is that they reveal the outro on Tunechi‘s C5 album will be about attempting suicide and it will sample British R&B singer Sampha’s “Indecision” song:

“When he was 12, Wayne came across a gun in his mother’s house and shot himself in the chest, just missing his heart. In the past, he has called this an accident. But on the new verse he plays, Wayne admits this was a suicide attempt, undertaken after his mother told him he would no longer be allowed to rap. The track, which samples British R&B singer Sampha’s brooding but hopeful 2013 song ‘Indecision’ and will be the album’s outro, was on the original album tracklist, but Wayne added new lyrics this summer, following the suicides of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.’

Also during their conversation, we get confirmation that Young Money Entertainment now solely belongs to Tune, but their distribution deal with Republic Records remains in place. You can check out some excerpts from the interview and pics from the photo shoot below!

Cortez Bryant Confirms Lil Wayne Is Doing Good & Says Wayne Wont Rest As He Is A Workaholic

Cortez Bryant was stopped by TMZ at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) yesterday and was asked about Lil Wayne‘s recent seizures to which he confirmed that Wayne is indeed doing “good“.

The manager and best friend of Tunechi revealed that he himself tells and forces Tune to slow down and get some rest, but it doesn’t work as Weezy is a workaholic. Tez Poe even mentioned that he tries to make sure Lil Wayne pops his medication daily to stop the seizures.

“Got me on the meds; Had a talk with Tez about me on the meds; Forgot the shit he said, I’m out here on the edge” – Mula Gang

He also assured TMZ that Mr. Carter suffers from epilepsy and that was the cause of the seizures last weekend, not from drinking lean, as well as that we shouldn’t be surprised if we see Wayne suffering from more seizures in the future as he will have to deal with this disease for the rest of his life.

Lil Wayne Has Been Released From Hospital After Suffering Multiple Seizures & Will Be Taking Time Off

Lil Wayne Has Been Released From Hospital After Suffering Multiple Seizures & Will Be Taking Time Off

After receiving confirmation from Lil Wayne‘s daughter Reginae Carter that he is “doing fine”, the doctor who was treating him has now revealed Wayne has been released from hospital and is it at home getting some well-needed rest.

As I’m sure many of you guessed, the reason behind Weezy suffering multiple seizures on Sunday was because he has not been getting much rest after doing shows every night in different cities and even different countries. So if anyone still needs confirmation, it is nothing to do with syrup.

The doctor has also mentioned that Tunechi will be taking 2 weeks off from his busy schedule to chill at home and take things easy. I am not sure if this means that he will be backing out of the Paid Dues music festival on September 17th, or not!
