Just after announcing his Lil’ Weezyana Fest yesterday, Lil Wayne called into New Orleans radio station Q93 for an in-depth conversation. Throughout the interview, Wayne shared about the beginning of his career and how Juvenile had a large impact on helping Wayne be confident about his craft. Tunechi also touched on the topic of Young Thug naming his album Barter 6, and compared it to how he named his 2002 album 500 Degreez as a payment of homage to Juve’s 1998 LP 400 Degreez. Wayne shares that “when [Thug] came out and he said that ‘I’m naming my album that because of props’ and he such a fan,’” he’d “have to be a monster” to not appreciate it. Check out the full interview below.
