Lil Wayne made news yesterday during an interview with Q93, telling the New Orleans radio station that the Hot Boys would be reunited at the Lil Weezyana Fest in August.
He also talked about the old days, and naming his third album 500 Degreez, a clear reference to fellow Hot Boy Juvenile's mega-hit 400 Degreez.
Weezy explained that doing so was his way of saying that he didn't need Juvenile, who had left Cash Money. When the host pointed out this is similar to the situation with Young Thug and his efforts to use the Carter name on his albums and mixtapes, Wayne drew an interesting distinction.
"Here's the difference-- when we did it, we had no problem saying that yeah, we don't need no Juvie, this is 500 Degreez. [Thug] came out and said 'I'm naming my album such and such because of props, and because I'm such a such fan'," he explained. "That's a totally different approach. I'd have to be some kind of monster to overlook that. I'm not that type of person. My mama ain't raise me [like that]... I'd have to be a monster for me to be like 'I don't believe you'. If he say it's from the heart and he's some kind of fan... I love him, hell, thanks bruh. I appreciate everything about it if he's a fan."Well, that was diplomatic of Wanye. Is a surprise Tunechi/Thugger project coming?
