Throwback Thursday: Lil Wayne Opens Up About His “Role Model” Jay-Z [Video]

Lil Wayne Opens Up About His Role Model Jay-Z

As it is #ThrowbackThursday today, we can watch a rare Lil Wayne interview with MTV News back in 2006 all about his “role model” Jay-Z.

In a conversation with Shaheem Reid (see below), Tunechi recalls Jay telling him he is “that dude” and that he see’s him, which Tune then says that acknowledgement is better than actually receiving a feature verse from his idol.

Wayne also opens up about how tough it was to not sign with Jay-Z when the opportunity was there, but he states he is a loyal dude and that is why he stayed with Cash Money Records.
