Lil Wayne Talks 50 Cent, Cocaine & Rock Music

Lil Wayne says "no more cocaine," why he won't mess with 50 Cent and reveals his affinity for rock music.

The last several years have seen Lil Wayne compete with the late James Brown for the title of “hardest working man in show business.” The Cash Money Millionaire has released a string of mix tapes and rocked a song with everybody from Little Brother (“Breakin My Heart”) to Playaz Circle (“Duffle Bag Boy”). Wayne recently sat down with Blender and gave his thoughts on rock music, prescription drugs and other topics.


“Lollipop,” the debut single from the upcoming The Carter III departs from the typical three 16’s and a hook, and finds Wayne singing and partying like a rock star in Vegas. Many fans may be surprised to find out that Weezy is a fan of rock.


“Nirvana,” he replied when asked about his favorite band. “I been into them since ‘Teen Spirit.’ There used to be this video-request station called the Box, and some ­motherfucker must have loved Nirvana, ’cause that video was always on. I loved it—everyone was throwing everyone else around, and all the girls looked like they were ready to do whatever.”


One issue that has followed Wayne around as of late is his affinity for sippin’ syrup. Despite his behavior being slightly Amy Winehouse-ish at times, he revealed there are times when he just says no.


“I’ll never fuck with no more coke. It’s not about a bad high, it’s just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out, and I’m a pretty boy.”


Another thing on Wayne’s “do not fuck with” list is 50 Cent. After 50 called the New Orleans emcee a “whore” on the radio, Weezy F. was surprisingly silent, offering up no response. Instead of dissing back, he extended his thanks.


“I have to call him and say thank you. He’s catapulted me. Nigga, white people know me now! Thank you! Diss rhyme? Fuck no! That nigga thrives off that. I am not feeding that tiger. I’m smart.”


He also went on to call Fif the “hardest nigga on the planet.”


“Do you see his size? I’m small. I saw a YouTube video of this dude playing a concert; somebody threw water on him—he took off his hat, went in the crowd, grabbed that nigga and boom! I was like, This nigga’s the hardest nigga on planet Earth. So, no, I’m not dissing 50. And I’m not throwing water on him, neither.”

    Yeah right Lil Wayne, Nirvana? You probably don't know the lyrics to the first verse of the song, much less the name of the album it's on. "Throwing everyone else around" Is a form of moshing, and please, those girls wouldn't go near your alien dick. Kurt Cobain despised that song because it got so famous, he'd despise you if he were alive today. You aren't a fan, you're just creating a facade to appeal to a larger audience. You've raised an army of materialistic, greedy money worshipers who believe that your music is actually deep, even though Birdman writes it all. I think I know who killed hip hop.

      Kurt Cobain shot himself in the face, that's how much he loved it, I always thought that was really clear but I guess some people really are DIM. The cover for Nevermind was reference to money being the what life has become not; this is what you should become. If you listen to the music, listen to those lyrics it's really clear it just seems there is a whole generation who misunderstood completely.

    Lil wayne is retarded.He doesnt like Nirvana.He is everything Kurt was against an attention whore who just want his 15 minutes of fame.This lil wayne dude should just shut up and leave bands that are so far beyond hes understanding alone.Who is he gonna say he likes next?Led zeppelin?He couldnt even kiss their feet and as to the lyrics you guys make me laugh when you compare him to great artists. Also whoever said rap has the basically the same lyrics as rock clearly doesnt know what hes talking about and has never heard Pink Floyd,Led zeppelin, Nirvana, The rolling stones, Bob Dylan and many others.
