Lil Wayne Covers VIBE Magazine

Weezy just won’t stop. Miami resident Lil Wayne will be the next superstar to grace the cover of hip-hop magazine VIBE. Dressed in a red velour jacket with gold trimmings and a black fedora, Weezy’s cover is reminicent of late rock legend Jimi Hendrix. Inside the issue Wayne talks about a number of topics including his issues with one time rap pal Jay-Z.

Lil Wayne on the spirit of competition
“There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That shit died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun-feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.”

Wayne on Drake
“I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.”

Lil Wayne on the London riots
All you could do is pray for the people that were dealing with the situation and hope for the best. As far as them blaming hip-hop, you can blame Jesus for things, so you can’t really fault anybody for blaming someone or something. All you can do is hope for the best.
