After talking about Tunechi‘s “most insane work ethic”, the 6 God then recalled witnessing Tune record 4 – 5 classics in one night and seeing Kobe Bryant walk in on the tour bus during his very first meeting with Weezy to get an early release of Tha Carter III on an iPod.

Later on in the interview, Drake mentioned Lil Wayne will always be one of his favorite music artists, how a lot of things changed when he went to jail in 2010, how Wayne doesn’t listen to no other artists when he is in album mode, and confirmed he is not signed to Young Money any more.

Lil Wayne Got Off His Private Plane To Pay Respect To 30 US Military Men

After performing live in Bloomington, Indiana on March 3rd, Lil Wayne headed to the IND airport so that he could leave the city and head to the next one on his “The Dedication Tour“.

Just as Tunechi‘s private plane was set to take off, a Lockheed C-130 Hercules military aircraft pulled up next to him. Tune then told his pilot to shut down their engine, so that he can go and meet all of the men in uniform (there was around 30) and shake their hands, as well as thank them personally for their sacrifice.

Amanda Lickliter was one of the people at the airport who witnessed all of this and she shared a post on her Facebook page with a photo saying how impressed she was with Wayne‘s act of kindness. You can check out that photo and message after the jump below!
