Throwback Thursday: Scans Of Lil Wayne & Birdman’s Cover Story For XXL Magazine’s 2006 Issue

Scans Of Lil Wayne & Birdman Cover Story For XXL Magazine 2006 Issue

For #ThrowbackThursday today, I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne and Birdman‘s cover story for the December 2006 issue of XXL magazine, which took place not long after their Like Father, Like Son collaboration album had been released in stores.

In an interview with Jon Caramanica for the mag, Weezy and Baby discussed everything from how they first met each other, why artists such as Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, B.G. and Turk all left Cash Money Records, and how they really felt about that.

You put out the “I Miss My Dawgs” song, and you said it came from a sincere place. The other [Hot Boys] guys said it was some sport of publicity stunt. How did that make you feel?
Fuck them niggas. They should be happy a nigga was still seeing them at that time. I don’t see them no more. Literally. They dead to me, man.

You can check out scans from Wayne and Baby‘s cover story below, courtesy of RSA, that also includes the two of them chatting about their family-like relationship, the early Cash Money days, relocating to Miami from New Orleans, and much more!

Kid Buu Calls Lil Wayne The Jesus Christ Of Hip Hop Culture, Says He & Every Other Rapper Are Clones Of Wayne

Kid Buu sat down with XXL a couple of months ago to explain why he deserves to be a 2019 Freshman.

During his pitch, which you can watch below, Buu explained that he is known for being a clone, but he is actually just a clone of Lil Wayne.

He then proceeds to say that he thinks everyone is a clone of Tunechi from their image to the way they talk/rap and everyone who appears on this XXL Freshman series should be paying homage plus respect to Tune.

The Jersey artist also pointed out that anyone who says they aren’t influenced by Lil Wayne are still technically influenced by him, because the rapper who does inspire them was more than likely influenced by Wayne. He even mentioned that Weezy is the Jesus Christ of hip-hop culture and the question is not “what would Jesus do?”, but more like “what would Wayne do?”!
