Last week (Mar. 14), Lil Wayne invaded Austin, TX for the SXSW edition of Elliot Wilson’s CRWN series and today–we get a first look at their highly anticipated sit down. During the unfiltered and entertaining exchange, Weezy F.Baby touched on just about everything, including his Hot Boyz days, Jay Z’s “best rapper alive” catchphrase and retiring after Tha Carter V.

“The grind is different – I’m approaching it as if you don’t have tomorrow,” says the Young Money exec of his “final” album. “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.”
