Lil Wayne Discusses His Childhood, Not Believing In Racism, Playing Tennis & More On The More To It Podcast

Lil Wayne recently participated in a 1-hour conversation with former American football player Marcellus Wiley on his “More To It” podcast, which is a show featuring interviews with entertainers.

In their convo, Wayne discussed growing up in the 17th Ward of New Orleans, signing to Cash Money Records, dressing up as Michael Jackson and performing for his family at a young age (this is when he realized he loved performing), his late stepfather Rabbit, the Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tour, Slim Williams, the moment when Birdman and Slim knew he was a solo artist and not a Hot Boy anymore, and being a student of the game every single day.

Also during their talk, Weezy spoke on wanting to become the ultimate music artist, how it feels to be in the conversation for the greatest rapper of all time, Roger Federer being the G.O.A.T. in tennis, playing tennis himself with his homie T@, the time he said he does not believe in racism on “Undisputed”, what he would tell his older self if he could go back in time, the Green Bay Packers, preferring American football over basketball, preferring Los Angeles over Miami, and what the hardest part and the best part about being Lil Wayne is.

Since his 36th birthday, Lil Wayne has been spotted rocking a new custom necklace with an 18-carat yellow-gold pendant in the shape of his face on it.

It turns out that this pendant, which features 2 white diamonds for Wayne‘s tear drop face tattoos, was gifted to him for his birthday from a close friend. You can get a better look at the chain after the jump below.

A 29-year-old art student named Joy Bonfield-Colombara was struggling to pay her £9,500.00-a-year course at the Royal College Of Art university in London, England and considered on dropping out until she received an e-mail from one of Weezy‘s close friends.
