Tyga Discusses How Lil Wayne Made Him Into The Person He Is Today, Being Mad He Wasnt On Every Girl & More

Tyga recently sat down with Ebro Darden for a one on one interview with Beats 1 radio to promote his latest album, Legendary.

During their conversation, which you can watch after the jump below, Ty revealed it was Lil Wayne who helped him grow into the person that he is today from his influence, as well as his work ethic.

“Wayne, he kinda like, he helped me grow into this person and really just inspired me and mentored me through the years. He signed me when I was 17. I was over there when he was doing Carter III so, that whole process, I had somebody to look [up] to as far as like, this is how I should do it. I should be in the studio every day. This person’s doing it. I should be doing shows… you know what I’m saying? I had guidance in a way. Just putting him on the beginning of the album is legendary. After all the drama, all the shit that he’s been through, label stuff, me, and still come out on top…”

T-Raww also mentioned that he put his Tune feature at the beginning of his Legendary album, because he is the actual legend. The former Young Money artist even explained how “Bed Rock” came together after first having hooks from Ne-Yo and Omarion, why you always have to be ready with verses when in the studio with Weezy, and being mad that he wasn’t on “Every Girl“!

Taylor Bennett Praises Lil Wayne, Shares A Funny Story About First Meeting Him

Taylor Bennett recently sat down with Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez for an interview with Hot 97 on their “Ebro In The Morning” radio show, which you can watch below.

At the start of their conversation, Peter revealed Chance The Rapper had told him during their interview in June that Taylor had spent around 12 hours hanging around with Lil Wayne, because everyone thought he was Chance – as they are brothers.

The Chicago rapper then went on to explain this story more by saying he first met Wayne before Chance did at SXSW and he managed to get backstage at Weezy‘s set from everyone thinking he was Chance, but he then told Tunechi he was Chance‘s brother and so Tune let him hit his blunt.

Before Rosenberg cut Taylor Bennett off as he was discussing Lil Wayne, he did manage to say that Wayne is the most hard-working artist of all time, as well as that him and Chance both love Mr. Carter and grew up listening to his music while naming songs like “Let The Beat Build“, “1 Night Only“, and even the unofficial The Drought Is Over 4 mixtape!

Kendrick even added that this studio session changed his perspective on work ethic as he witnessed Weezy knock out 12 features in one night:

“That moment in the studio with Wayne, I never told Wayne this, that changed my perspective about work ethic. Knocked out about 12 verses and this is “Feature Wayne” at the moment. And these not no motherfuckin’ fly by night verses. This is set right there and thought out right in front of your face. And smashin’ ’em, and he’s excited about it, and he’s loving music, and he loves what he’s doing. That gave me a whole other appreciation, and we took that same intensity and that work ethic, and applied it moving forward.”
