Weezy Talks What He Would Do If Not Rapping

Posted By on December 18, 2009

    Grammy-Award-Winning rapper (and sentenced Weapons Charges Felon; watch Weezy enter court for sentencing here), Lil Wayne recently talked about his thoughts on what what he might be doing if he would have not made it as a hip-hop star, saying he would probably be studying law. When Lil Wayne and his Young Money group slash label recently appeared on the Mo' Nique show, Weezy explained the importance of having a good education. "School," Wayne said about what he would do without a rap career. "I would probably still be in school because I would probably be studying something like law. No [I wouldn't want to be lawyer], but that's probably what I would be doing. I like to be powerful and that's probably something I would have done if I wouldn't had done rapping."

    In related news, previously Lil Wayne promoted the "Get Schooled: You Have The Right" program with a new commercial where the rapper talked about the importance of education and staying in school. "Growing up in a tough neighborhood is something I know a little
about," Weezy said in the commercial's intro. "It's not easy and you
have to rise up and stand out. Right now, fewer than one in ten lower
income students can expect to earn a bachelor's degree. Odds like that,
a better life seems harder to come by. America needs a stronger
educational system and the time is now for bold reform. We owe the next
generation a brighter future. Motivate. Educate. Elevate. Get
Schooled." [Lil Wayne Talks About The Importance Of Education – Watch Here]
