Lil Wayne Recalls Signing Drake, Nicki Minaj

Wayne talks about signing the two biggest stars on his roster.

With his newly-released video for "6 Foot 7 Foot" dropping, Lil Wayne sat down with MTV News to discuss the two biggest signings of his career: Drake and Nicki Minaj.

"The first thing I said was this kid's a superstar," said Wayne of Drake. "I don't think you can remember, but I did some interviews back then when they were asking me about him and I said he's better than me. I can't sing. I can make a song, but this kid has the actual R&B presence. Then he's one of the dopest lyricists. That right there, he has a welcoming appearance."

Not to be forgot is Nicki Minaj, who had a successful year as well with the release of her debut album, Pink Friday. "I can't front, I just thought she was going to be the new female emcee that none of these other female emcees can touch," bragged Weezy. "But now, she's blossomed into a megastar with this new attitude and this style. Now when I talk to her, I just tell her, 'Do what you do, baby.' I used to be able to go into the studio and say, 'Nah, don't say that, don't say that.' You know, 'That was better.' Now, do what you do, baby. I don't have a clue about what you're doing right now, but it's working, do it."

Lil Wayne's "6 Foot 7 Foot" video makes its officially debut on tonight at 7:54 PM EST on MTV.

    Anybody can talk as much shit as they want about Wayne's "rap skills".. But NOBODY can say that he's not smart.. 'Cause while you guys are sittin' on your computers talkin' shit about him, he's making millions of dollars haha.. So instead of talkin' about how Lil Wayne needs to rap better, maybe you guys should.. Then perhaps you'll actually be somebody, instead of just a hater on a Hip-Hop website..
