Lil Wayne Says He Was Bored With Rap

Posted By on April 2, 2009

    Lil Wayne says he was simply bored with hip-hop and got inspired by rock music. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Weezy said "The rock sh*t just comes from what my life is now," Wayne said. "I've grown into this person."

    Wayne said after a wild night out, he woke up in bed with three or four women that he couldn't name, he had an epiphany. "I just got, I'm not going to say 'so good' at what I was doing, but it became such a regularity for me that I got tired of it. And then I said, 'You know what? I'm not going to rap on this one…I don't want to be the best rapper in the world. Not now," he says. "I want to be the best. Period. Now. My favorite rapper hasn't done what I'm doing."
