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.

Tune was also asked who he personally thinks is the greatest rapper of all time to which he first said The Notorious B.I.G. before then going on to choose Jay Z!

During their convo at the 40:00 mark, Chainz talked about receiving his first ever GRAMMY award for Chance The Rapper‘s “No Problem” single featuring himself and Wayne back in 2017.

Later on in their conversation at 1:06:40, 2 Chainz named his top 5 rappers of all time dead or alive and Weezy was No. 1 in his list. The rest were: Jay Z, Scarface, Andre 3000, and Tupac Shakur plus The Notorios B.I.G. as a whole. You can check out the full video after the jump below!
