Just recently Lil Wayne mentioned at one of his shows that he had joined Roc Nation as he threw up the infamous diamond sign. Just as we got our hopes up, now our dreams are crashing down as Weezy F. Baby joined “Undisputed” for another rare two-part interview.
Tunechi took the time to discuss the state of hip-hop, the most recent Roc-Nation rumors, and the latest in sports with host “Undisputed” Skip Bayless.
Wayne discussed the current state of hip-hop,
“I’m good with where it’s going,” he said. “As far as where do I see myself in that direction of where it’s going, I see myself as I’m going there with you, but in my own lane. When I say there, I only mean to the next level. I’m not meaning going to where there’s certain sounds, or certain place, or look. Whatever the next level is, I’ll be right there with you, just in my own world.”
Hopefully, this means new Wayne music in the coming months, but as he continues his legal issues with Cash Money we can only continue to dream. Lil’ Wayne did clear up the Roc Nation rumors and expressed how Jay-Z has become a true friend and pivotal alliance that will help him battle Cash Money in court.
“Jay is just a good guy,” he said. “It was nothing but a simple thing. Friend to friend, I just want to help you. Simply. That’s all it was. I just want to help you, man, in any way I can. Right now, he’s just gonna help me in any way he can.”
The Lil Wayne and Hov relationship date as far back as 2005 when Jay wanted to sign Wayne to a $175,000 deal.
“First of all, he was at the 40/40 in the daytime, and when I got up there he was talking, it was Denzel [Washington], it was Derek Jeter. I was like, ‘This is his clique?’ And they up there just [fake] laughing at jokes I just don’t get. He literally sat me down next to him…That man offered me 175 [thousand dollars]. I said, ‘Believe that…’ I was looking like, two teeth in my mouth is 175, like two of them. My bottom teeth. So we laugh about that all the time. We joke about it all the time.”
Although the two superstars have a strong bond, that doesn’t mean the Cash Money label feud is far from over,
“No. We haven’t done that yet,” he said. “We’re still working on that. That’s a situation. But Jay is just a good guy and he just wants to help me. That’s it. He’s gonna be helping me.”
The only thing we can do is hope that Jay-Z will help Lil’ Wayne end his long legal battle with Baby and Cash Money. We’ve gone too long without any music from Wayne, now we can only wait it out and just maybe we’ll have a collaboration.
