Lil Wayne Chats To 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell & Dustin Poirier For Episode 10 Of Young Money Radio

For episode 10 of the “Young Money Radio” show on Apple Music on July 3rd, Lil Wayne chopped it up with 50 Cent, Whoopi Goldberg, Naomi Campbell, and Dustin Poirier.

Tunechi and Fiddy actually had a conversation for a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes before Tune had to end it as they were going to get cut off. They talked about everything from the early Cash Money tour days, Birdman, Eminem, the culture of hip-hop, BBC (and not the TV network in the UK lol), Mike Tyson, The Game, Meek Mill, Pop Smoke, new rappers copying both of their styles, award shows, and much more. 50 also mentioned “they should expect to see us collaborate” at the end, which is good news as the two of them have not yet to release a song together.

Another interesting story from this week’s episode comes from Naomi, who tells Weezy that she watched him talk to Donald Trump for a good 2 hours at Usher’s birthday party inside the Rainbow Room in New York back in 2006… but of course, he didn’t remember this. You can check out all of these convos in the videos below, which also includes Mr. Carter chatting with Whoopi about who her favorite music artist of all time is (Wayne says his is Anita Baker) and with Dustin about wanting his next UFC fight to be against someone big, such as a Conor McGregor or Nate Diaz!

“Telling NASCAR to take away the Confederate flag is like telling me to cut my dreads off.”

Lastly, Weezy chatted with his Young Money artist Nicki about his “Tunechi” sign in his studio, how a lot of people told him to not sign a female, taking time off social media, Minaj getting married, and a possible collaboration album from the two.

Behind The Scenes Of Lil Wayne’s “Young Money Radio” Show With Apple Music’s Larry Jackson

Behind The Scenes Of Lil Wayne Young Money Radio Show With Apple Music Larry Jackson

Lil Wayne‘s “Young Money Radio” show, which airs every Friday afternoon at 4PM PST, is now eight episodes in and it’s getting stronger and stronger.

According to Apple Music’s global creative director, Larry Jackson, this radio show with Tunechi was always going to happen even before COVID-19 became a thing. “Young Money Radio” was originally going to be taped weekly at Culver City studios in Los Angeles, but due to the coronavirus, Larry set Tune up to broadcast from his private studio in Miami.

“We’re No. 1 in hip-hop. Artists like Wayne, Drake, Travis, Future, Post Malone, Kanye all do really well on the service. To be sure: Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ holds the biggest first-week streams tally of any album on Apple Music. In second place: Wayne’s ‘Carter V.’ It was a natural if I could work it out to get Wayne to deliver the show.”

To date, Weezy has chopped it up with guests such as Dr. Dre, Drake, Eminem, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Durant, Kevin Hart, LaToya Cantrell, Mike Tyson, Muriel Bowser, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, and plenty more on “Young Money Radio”. Jackson reveals to Variety that his dream guest was Dr. Anthony Fauci and his pitch to get the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases on the radio show went something like:

“I know you don’t know me, I know you haven’t even heard of this show, but it’s become a real roaring success for us on Apple Music. We’re the No. 1 streaming service in Black music, and our community needs to hear what you have to say. They’re not on CNN; they’re not on ‘Good Morning America’; they’re not on the ‘Today Show,’ but they are on Young Money Radio. I promise you if you come on the show, it’ll have true resonance with the community.”
