Lil Wayne Covers Nylon Guys Magazine
Written by Danny P Ocean on December 29, 2014
Lil Wayne chops it up with Nylon Guys January issue. Here are a few quotes from the article.
“When I first started doing it, you only did it to be the best— not to have a hot song or popularity or for Instagram or Twitter. I’m one of the last of a dying breed…the ones who are only about the music. You have to want to be unforgettable. The only other people who I can think of like that are Kanye [West] and Beyoncé.”
On Heeding the Call
“I was always ready for the call. That’s the best way to explain it. Wayne’s always ready. When it’s my turn, I make way more than the most of it. If you’re ready when they call you, and you make the most of your time, then they’ll never stop calling you.”
On His Process
“I’m just a regular street n____ that’s a little smarter than the rest. I rap whatever comes up in my head. Whatever rhymes with the next word and how I’m feeling. I start rapping and we find something within what I just said and make a song out of it.”
“I don’t know how it works, but I know that I need weed…extra when I’m creating. It helps in a major way.”
The issue is on stands right now.
