Lil Wayne Talks His Grandma Mercedes Carter, Struggles In Life, Being Self Made, Drake, Nicki Minaj & More

Last week, Lil Wayne took part in a live interview for social media with the CEO of Sovereign Brands, Brett Berish, which you can watch below.

During their 1-hour conversation, Weezy spoke on what “self-made” means to him, tattooing his grandma Mercedes Carter‘s name on his face (the “Mercy” and “Merci” tatt), what his biggest struggle in life has been, who his inspirations are, knowing nothing about social media, and listening to Jack Harlow before he blew up.

Tunechi also discussed all of these new generation rappers looking like him, this year’s Super Bowl and NBA Championship, why there is no such thing as a next Drake or Nicki Minaj, recording new music with A$AP Ferg and Rich The Kid recently, being influenced to skateboard by Alex Midler, how getting sick on the Ruff Ryders/Cash Money tour was his biggest break, I Am Not A Human Being III album, and much more!

Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst Calls Lil Wayne “A Fuckin’ Rocker”

Limp Bizkit Fred Durst Calls Lil Wayne A Fucking Rocker

In issue #259 of Metal Hammer, which is a monthly heavy metal and rock music magazine, Fred Durst spoke a little bit about Lil Wayne.

The Limp Bizkit frontman mentioned people would be very surprised to see how metal Wayne actually is, as well as how they have bonded over skateboarding in the past.

“People would be very surprised at how metal Lil Wayne is. He’s a fuckin’ rocker, man! He’s not gonna alienate what he’s known for, but the metal community would be surprised if they spent a day with him! We bonded while skating. Sometimes we’d never talk, just skate for hours, and eventually the dialogue came along.”

The two former Cash Money Records artists have previously collaborated together on “Ready To Go” and “Champions” (both have music videos too)!

Lil Wayne – Piano Trap & Not Me [Music Video]

Lil Wayne Piano Trap & Not Me Music Video

Here is the music video for two of Lil Wayne‘s songs – “Piano Trap” and “Not Me“.

In an e-mail to Rolling Stone, Weezy had the following to say about this visual that is more or less a showcase for his skateboarding skills:

“I was happiest with the banger at the end! In Barcelona, the 180 to fake shuv! It was like 5 a.m. and those homies who was lit at the end were unknown to me! They were just out there kickin it! And they literally didn’t bother me until I landed that shit! And it took me about an hour or two. I’ve found skateboarding to be a release from life and all this shit in general! That’s why I can’t stop won’t stop!”

Both of these tracks appear on Tunechi‘s latest album, Funeral, which was released earlier this year! What are your thoughts on the video and Tune‘s skating tricks?
