He was asked some off-topic questions concerning his thoughts about the new era of rappers….specifically, Kodak Black, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and Lil Yachty.
To which Wayne responded…
“I swear to God i didn’t know you were saying people’s names just now, so that should probably answer that question. I just do my own thing.” Wayne said seeming to look confused and concerned at the same time.
Not a shocker to the true fans that know Wayne only listens to his own music which makes sense why he isn’t in the know about new rappers. But, we all know that Mr. Carter has definitely been an inspiration to the new genre. According to XXL, “at least three of those rappers, (21 Savage not included) wear some of Wayne’s influence on their sleeve….Making his statement about the rappers hilarious.
In the rest of the interview, Wayne touches base on his now completed album ‘Tha Carter V,’ saying it’s “so much better than everything I’ve ever heard. Not what’s going on right now — Everything I’ve ever heard.”
