Lil Wayne has been messing with the guitar for quite some time.

According to Wayne, he started learning the instrument for his and Birdman’s 2006 “Leather So Soft” video, which featured Wayne playing the guitar. [Jump to eight minutes.]

“I had wrote a treatment for a video for an album we had called Like Father, Like Son, me and Baby,” he explained. “And there was a song we had called ‘Leather So Soft’.  I wrote the treatment.  The song has a riff, a pretty prominent guitar riff. Cant' forget it. Once you hear it, you remember it. I wrote on the treatment I’ll be playing the guitar next to some old car," Wayne told Rolling Stone. “They were saying, ‘You gon’ look like you playing? You going for the look? You just gonna have it on your back?’ And, so, I was like, ‘Well, no.’ Once I learned how to play it, anybody could tell you, once I learn anything, I’m gonna to think I'm gonna try to be the best in it and I’m gonna go hard in it and I’m gonna real immerse myself into it.”

He's been practicing every day since and has started adding his guitar work to other artists' albums.

“I play every [day]. You gotta start looking at the back of people’s albums now. No, for real. You’ll see in the production, you’ll see a little D. Carter. And you’ll be like, ‘Who’s D? I ain’t hear Wayne on there.’ Yes, you did," Wayne said.

If he's really become that good, that's a pretty cool career development story.
