Lil Wayne Talks The Lakers Recent Win, Recording A New Feature For DMX, Why Every Artist Tries To Sound Like Drake & More

After the Los Angeles Lakers won the recent NBA Finals championship, Lil Wayne appeared on the “ALL BALL with Doug Gottlieb” podcast, which you can check out below.

During their 50-minute conversation, Wayne spoke on being a Lakers fan, first meeting the late Kobe Bryant, having some stuff in the works with Kobe before he passed away, his thoughts on LeBron James moving to the Lakers, and how he will be celebrating their latest win by going to the studio.

Weezy also discussed growing up in New Orleans, how his stepfather Rabbit convinced his mother Cita to be a rapper, recording a recent feature for DMX, the recording process for his very first album, his favorite meal that his mom cooks, his favorite sneakers, his half-brother Semaj, buying a Nissan Pathfinder with his very first paycheck, the success of his first solo album Tha Block Is Hot, why so many artists in the music industry try and sound like Drake, the last time he was on stage, and the “colossal” change in how music is downloaded now compared to how it was at the start of his career.

Before his interview with Doug Gottlieb wrapped up, Tunechi recalled his trip to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia at the end of last year and told the story of how he nearly didn’t get into the country, as well as how “Your Excellency” helped him out!

2 Chainz & TI Talk About Their Relationship With Lil Wayne, His Work Ethic, ColleGrove & More

A couple of months ago, 2 Chainz appeared on the “expediTIously” podcast to chop it up with T.I. about music, investments, T.R.U. record label, Atlanta, and more.

Just before the 30:00 mark, Tity Boi spoke on his relationship with Lil Wayne, how their ColleGrove joint album came together from Chainz wanting to give back to Tunechi after Tune gave him the “Duffle Bag Boy” hook which changed his life, and Weezy having a skate ramp in his studio.

Later on in their conversation (1:11:45) that you can check out below, 2 Chainz discussed Lil Wayne‘s work ethic. He also mentioned “Free Roscoe” at some point in this interview, which I find strange considering he is currently locked up behind bars for shooting at Wayne‘s tour bus!

Lil Wayne In The Studio Recording The Original Version Of Hittas & Playing It For Drake

Lil Wayne took to his Instagram page a few days ago to reveal some exclusive behind the scenes footage of him recording his “Hittas” song.

The clip shows Wayne recording the original version of Tha Carter V track before then playing it for Drake, who calls it an “anthem” and tells Tune that he needs to give him the session so he can record an alternative version to it.

It’s unknown if Drizzy did ever record another version or a remix of “Hittas“, but he does have one line on the 2018 version that we all heard: “Weezy, where you been? The people miss you”.

You can check out the behind the scenes video that was filmed by DJ Scoob Doo after the jump below! With the “To Be Continued” at the end, I wonder if we are about to get a C5 in the making documentary, or even the long-awaited The Nino Brown Story (Part 3)?
