After performing live at Samsung’s 2016 Galaxy Life Fest during SXSW in Austin, Texas on March 12th, Lil Wayne chopped it up with Adweek for an interview about appearing in four Samsung commercials and the Apartments.com ad.

Weezy went into detail about why he loved shooting the commercials, wanting to do more advertisements in the future, appearing in the ads to hopefully get more brands to want to work with him rather than appearing in them as “Lil Wayne“, being part of the Super Bowl, and more.

2 Chainz Announces A ColleGrove Tour With Lil Wayne, Talks Duffle Bag Boy & More

Yesterday (March 9th), 2 Chainz made an appearance on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show in New York City to chat with DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God for an interview, which you can check out after the jump below.

At the 21:20 mark, Tity Boi confirmed once again that ColleGrove is more of his own solo album that is dedicated to his “brother”, “one of the realest people in the game”, and “one of his favorite rappers of all time” Lil Wayne rather then a collaboration project from them. He also spoke on Wayne blessing him and Dolla Boy with the “Duffle Bag Boy” hook and revealed why he didn’t sign to Young Money.

Just before the conversation wrapped up at the end, Chainz talked a little bit about his and Weezy‘s SXSW show for Samsung’s Galaxy Life Fest that is taking place on Saturday (March 12th), as well as announced that him and Tunechi will be going on a ColleGrove tour some time this year. I’m sure the dates and locations will be announced soon!

T-Pain recently sat down with Brittany Lewis from GlobalGrind.com backstage during 2015 SXSW at The FADER Fort in Austin, Texas for a one on one interview about various subjects, which you can check out below.

One of the subjects that he was asked about was if the T-Pain and Lil Wayne collaborative album, T-Wayne, is still happening. Pain says that every time he tries to release the project, there is always something going on with Weezy (currently it’s his label situation).

Even though he personally doesn’t think it’s a good time right now, T-Pain does say that Tunechi is still down to drop the project, but he also doesn’t want to at this moment in time. He also mentioned that him and Tune are still sending songs back and forth to each other for T-Wayne!
