Transgender Producer D. Smith Talks Working On Old & New Music With Lil Wayne [Video]

Transgender Producer D Smith Talks Working On Old & New Music With Lil Wayne

D. Smith, who is a transgender producer from Atlanta, recently sat down with Vlad TV for an interview about working with Lil Wayne on his “Shoot Me Down” song off Tha Carter III back in 2008 (she produced the beat and also sang the hook).

At the start of their conversation, Smith spoke on her songwriter friend Stacy Barthe first playing a rough version of the track for Wayne, recalled Weezy kicking everyone out of the studio so that he could record the song, explained how she got a free performance of his “Lollipop” single before the whole world had even heard it, and more.

She also discussed Tunechi writing a section about her in his Billboard interview, his recent seizures, and working on some new stuff for Tune as he is someone that she “really cares a lot about”. You can watch the full interview below!

Lil Wayne’s Seizures Were Caused From Not Taking His Epilepsy Medication

Lil Wayne Seizures Were Caused From Not Taking His Epilepsy Medication

A rep from Lil Wayne‘s team has revealed to TMZ that the two seizures Wayne suffered from on Monday were due to epilepsy, which is of course something that he has told us about before in an interview.

Tunechi had the epileptic attacks on his private jet, because he hadn’t taken any of his medication. He went to a pharmacy in Milwaukee and they didn’t have his medicine in stock, so Tune thought he could go without taking it for a few days, but of course it turned out he couldn’t.

There were websites reporting online that Weezy suffered his seizures from downing 3 pints of lean the night before, which is something I can’t understand how anyone would believe, or even ask me to post on LilWayneHQ! There are too many people in this world who will believe anything posted online even when there is no credible source.
