There might be a slight delay on Lil Wayne‘s upcoming album but that’s not stopping the rapper from being all smiles on Nylon Mag‘s latest “guys” edition.
The YMCMB head honcho shows off his skateboarding skills, claims he is “the last of a dying breed,” and talks about what keeps him going. Check out some of what he shared in his magazine interview below:
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 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.
For more of Weezy and what’s on his mind, make sure you cop the December/January issue of Nylon Guys. Also, be on the lookout for The Carter V.
