Lil Wayne released his rock-inspired LP Rebirth last year, but his love for the genre run deep. Speaking with MTV News, Weezy shared his love for Nirvana’s Nevermind in honor of its 20th anniversary, explaining how it inspired his rebellious spirit.
“Because I was young and I actually listened to the lyrics, and I probably felt at that time that I was rebelling and I could associate myself with that and relate to the things [Cobain] was talking about and speaking about in the song,” he said. “I probably couldn’t, but I thought I could.”
As part of MTV News’ “Nirvana: The Nevermind You Never Knew,” the network will air “Nirvana’s Legacy: Today’s Biggest Stars Remember,” where Tunechi will reminisce on the album alongside Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington and Zooey Deschanel.
