Behind The Scenes Of Lil Wayne’s “Young Money Radio” Show With Apple Music’s Larry Jackson

Behind The Scenes Of Lil Wayne Young Money Radio Show With Apple Music Larry Jackson

Lil Wayne‘s “Young Money Radio” show, which airs every Friday afternoon at 4PM PST, is now eight episodes in and it’s getting stronger and stronger.

According to Apple Music’s global creative director, Larry Jackson, this radio show with Tunechi was always going to happen even before COVID-19 became a thing. “Young Money Radio” was originally going to be taped weekly at Culver City studios in Los Angeles, but due to the coronavirus, Larry set Tune up to broadcast from his private studio in Miami.

“We’re No. 1 in hip-hop. Artists like Wayne, Drake, Travis, Future, Post Malone, Kanye all do really well on the service. To be sure: Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ holds the biggest first-week streams tally of any album on Apple Music. In second place: Wayne’s ‘Carter V.’ It was a natural if I could work it out to get Wayne to deliver the show.”

To date, Weezy has chopped it up with guests such as Dr. Dre, Drake, Eminem, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Durant, Kevin Hart, LaToya Cantrell, Mike Tyson, Muriel Bowser, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, and plenty more on “Young Money Radio”. Jackson reveals to Variety that his dream guest was Dr. Anthony Fauci and his pitch to get the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on the radio show went something like:

“I know you don’t know me, I know you haven’t even heard of this show, but it’s become a real roaring success for us on Apple Music. We’re the No. 1 streaming service in Black music, and our community needs to hear what you have to say. They’re not on CNN; they’re not on ‘Good Morning America’; they’re not on the ‘Today Show,’ but they are on Young Money Radio. I promise you if you come on the show, it’ll have true resonance with the community.”
