Chris Johnson Talks Being Good Friends With Lil Wayne, Calls Him His Favorite Rapper

In an interview with The Players’ Tribune, former American football running back Chris Johnson revealed how he “became real good friends” with Lil Wayne.

Johnson told the story (watch below) of how he was at a Wayne concert with his team mates when he asked a security guard if he could meet Tunechi and to his surprise, he was invited onto Tune‘s tour bus.
