YMCMB bossman Lil Wayne has been laying low on the media scene for a few years now while still managing to maintain a highly visible presence musically, but he revealed during a recent chat with hip hop journalist Elliot Wilson at that he has no desire to jump in the ring with current hip hop hotboy Kendrick Lamar.
Weezy also spoke briefly about his history with Jay Z during the chat, which took place during one of Elliot’s notable CROWN interviews at the annual SXSW music festival in Austin, TX. Check out a few interview excerpts below.
On who “Lil Wayne” is:
I’m a proud father, first. I’m Jacita Carter’s son, that’s my beautiful mother, and I’m Cash Money Millionaires, Young Money CEO.
On how he almost left Cash Money to sign with Jay Z:
Jay Z expressed interest and, you know me, I was letting him know I was a super fanatic. I was on the first thing smoking. So I went over there and we met.
I met with Jay, but history turned out to be what history is.
On why he’s not interested in battling Kendrick Lamar:
“When you hear an older athlete talk about the game, some of them keep it real and let you know like ‘man I can’t get out there with these young boys.’ So that’s how I look at it now.
When I hear a Kendrick Lamar verse, I’m like ‘aw man, I’m tired of this man’ [laughs]. I’m not about to jump out here saying ‘I’m the best.’ I don’t need anybody coming at my neck.”
