Lil Wayne Reflects On His First Conversation With Jay Z On ESPN’s ‘Be Honest’

Music News

Lil Wayne loves chatting with ESPN, so it’s no wonder he decided to call into Cari Champion’s radio podcast “Be Honest.” The two discussed a plethora of topics from his inaugural Lil Weezyana Fest to the first time meeting his protege, Drake.

As a proud New Orleans native, Weezy said every dime earned from the festival went toward the Hurricane Katrina fund to help rebuild parts of the city still effected by the storm.

“I brought out every era of New Orleans music, up until me and my music, and it was crazy for me to be able to be the last man standing,”  Wayne said.

Things got a little interesting when Weezy spoke about his first conversation he had with Jay Z. While shooting pool in his second home in New Orleans, he said he remembers receiving a text notifying him Jay would call him.

Wayne, who admittedly was a huge east coast fan, to the dismay of Baby, said when he first spoke to Mr. Carter, not even his mama could tell him anything.

“It’s crazy how something like that, something so specific could make you feel solidified, Wayne says” That phone call right there was serious for me. I remember exactly where I was. I remember telling everybody in the garage to shut up. He didn’t really say much, but ‘what’s up little homie. I see you.’

Listen to the rest of the podcast in which Wayne gives his thoughts on Straight Outta Compton, the first time he met Drake and That Carter V.
