Skip Bayless Speaks On His Friendship With Lil Wayne, Reveals A Good Deed Wayne Did For Craig Humphreys Son Sam

For episode 2 of UNDISPUTED’s “#SkipRidesTheTrollerCoaster” series, Skip Bayless revealed how his relationship with Lil Wayne came to be.

At the 6:05 mark of the video below, Bayless told the story of how he first met Tunechi in 2008 (which involves Nelly), mentioned they talk regularly and text all of the time, discussed Tune‘s passion and knowledge for sports, praised the “No Mercy” theme song, and called him a “creative genius”.

The sports columnist also explained how much of a good guy Wayne actually is by sharing another story that involved Craig Humphreys‘ son Sam, who found out he had testicular cancer at the age of 21-years-old. After finding out that he is a huge fan, Weezy made a 20-minute phone call to Sam for support.

Kobe Bryant Reveals Why Lil Wayne Created A Tribute Song For Him

Last month, Kobe Bryant made an appearance on Barstool’s “The Corp” podcast to chop it up with Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez and Dan “Big Cat” Katz.

During their conversation, the former professional basketball player was asked how often does he listen to the “Kobe Bryant” song that Lil Wayne created for him back in 2009.

While answering the question, Kobe also revealed how the Weezy track came together after the 2009 Western Conference Finals where Bryant‘s Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets in six games:

“It was after the Denver series, [Wayne] called me. He was like: ‘Man, that performance just motivated the hell out of me.’ I think it was like game six. He was like: ‘I’mma do a song. Is it okay, can I do a song?’ I was like: ‘alright, cool.’ Man I just thought he was just BS-ing or whatever. Before the Celtics series he sends me the song and I was like: ‘Oh, you were serious.’ Okay, that’s awesome.”
