ESPN's Cari Champion is the latest person to get Lil Wayne for a sit down. They spoke on a podcast where Weezy discussed N.W.A., Jay Z calling him for the first time, being a huge fan of East Coast rap and how Birdman hated it, and more.
One of the stand out moments of the 27 minute interview is his advice to Drake about staying himself and "keeping it Canadian." Check out those highlights and listen to the whole podcast below.
On his early advice to Drake: I was the one to tell him; don't change anything. Don't think 'cause you're coming over here over by me that you gotta rap about the things I rap about... Please rap about your little TV show... rap about girls, 'cause that's what your're good at... Don't start singing about killin' nobody [laughs]. Don't start singing about the streets. Keep it Canadian [laughs]. On whether he's better than Drake: Man, I'd annihilate that guy [laughs]... I was trying to keep it Canadian, but you got me with that one. On what's going on with Meek Mill and Drake: That I don't know... To the next song is all I can tell you... (ESPN: "I love 'Back To Back'") I think everybody does... Stop it! Let's move to sports [laughs]
