Calboy Reveals What Advice Lil Wayne Gave Him To Stay Relevant For A Long Time

Calboy Reveals What Advice Lil Wayne Gave Him To Stay Relevant For A Long Time

Calboy recently chopped it up with HipHopDX to speak about his relationship with Lil Wayne after Wayne had reached out to him on Instagram, which he nearly missed.

“What’s crazy about the Wayne situation is he reached out to me on Instagram. That’s when I felt like: ‘Man, I’m lit. Wayne reached out to me.’ He was like: ‘Yo, you fire, shorty. What’s the situation like?’ But I didn’t see his DM for like four, five months, bro. It’s just sitting in my DMs, and I didn’t see it and it’s a DM from Wayne [laughs].”

After Calboy discussed how himself and Tunechi built up a connection from there, he then went on to talk about Tune‘s influence on him:

“We was just talking about all type of stuff. He was going through the legal situations before he got pardoned by Trump, so I’m like: ‘Man, I’m sending my prayers to you, bro. Blessings. Keep your head up.’ He’s like: ‘Oh, I definitely need them, bro.’ He just wanted to see what type of person I was, and we just locked in from there. Every time I heard a Wayne project, I’m like fixing to go to the studio. Like that man turns you up like: ‘No, I got to go rap, bro. This man going crazy.’ That was my whole entire life just watching him snapping.”

The Chicago rapper also disclosed some of the advice that Weezy had gave to him about staying relevant long-time, as well as recalled Mack Maine telling him Mr. Carter needs two different assistants, due to his insane work ethic!

2 Chainz & TI Talk About Their Relationship With Lil Wayne, His Work Ethic, ColleGrove & More

A couple of months ago, 2 Chainz appeared on the “expediTIously” podcast to chop it up with T.I. about music, investments, T.R.U. record label, Atlanta, and more.

Just before the 30:00 mark, Tity Boi spoke on his relationship with Lil Wayne, how their ColleGrove joint album came together from Chainz wanting to give back to Tunechi after Tune gave him the “Duffle Bag Boy” hook which changed his life, and Weezy having a skate ramp in his studio.

Later on in their conversation (1:11:45) that you can check out below, 2 Chainz discussed Lil Wayne‘s work ethic. He also mentioned “Free Roscoe” at some point in this interview, which I find strange considering he is currently locked up behind bars for shooting at Wayne‘s tour bus!
