Young Money head Lil Wayne recently spoke on who he thinks is the best rapper alive is and in his opinion one of his fellow Young Money crew members should get that title. Weezy also spoke on his retirement and how he wants to be remembered during the interview.
Although Weezy respects Drake and what he has done, Nicki Minaj is the best hip-hop artist alive in Waynes opinion.
“Of Kendrick Lamar, he said, “Ain’t nobody touch that dude.” And he praised the artists on his own Young Money label. He called Drake “a wonderful person” and said Nicki Minaj is not just the best female rapper out there, but the best rapper. “I am not going to be jumping out here talking about, ‘I’m the best,’” Wayne said.” (AP)
Wayne also spoke on his retirement and how he wants to be remembered as in the music industry.
Asked about his legacy as he nears his self-imposed retirement age of 33, he said he used to want to be remembered in the same way The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and Jay Z are thought of. Now, he’d prefer folks think of him as a beloved figure. “I would just say I’d like to be remembered as a good spirit, a good soul, like a Willie Nelson … like a Snoop Dogg,” Wayne said. (AP)
