Whenever you are able to lock down Lil Wayne for an interview, he is bound to drop some interesting quotes. That’s just what happened when Tunechi was discussing sports, social media and music with ESPN The Magazine.
The YMCMB rapper was candid about his fandom.
“Athletes wanna be rappers, rappers wanna be athletes. I wanna be what I am.
But meeting athletes is the coolest. Trust me — the coolest. When we met, I told Kobe I’m a huge fan and he told me he’s a huge fan, which was a total shock. He also said he likes the things I say about him in music. I think I put a song out for him — I don’t know, I’ve done so much music.”
The “D’usse” rapper was just as frank when discussing any messages he may try to deliver via his tunes. That would be none.
“I never try to send messages through music. Music is about self. It’s supposed to be personal, a reflection of me, unless you have somebody writing it for you, and everybody know I’m not that artist. I’m not sending a message because that message may not get across. Whatever message you take from it is your choice.”
Fair enough? Let us know what you think in the comments. Read the full story over at ESPN.
