Lil Wayne held a book signing and meet-and-greet for the release of his new memoir, Gone ‘Til November on Tuesday.
The New York Times sat down with Weezy, asking him questions about his book, the guest verses he’s done this year, and working with younger musicians. Surprisingly, when asked if he kept up with Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and Kodak Black, he answered like he didn’t know who they were.
I swear to God I didn’t know you were saying people’s names just now, so that should probably answer that question. I just do my own thing.
Later, the Times asked if the Tha Carter V was finished, and Wayne confirmed the album was completed.
It’s done, sitting and wrapped as is. I just listened to it for the first time in months the other day. I had forgotten every single word on it, because I work every day. I popped it in, and I was like, it’s still so much better than everything I’ve ever heard. Not what’s going on right now — everything I’ve ever heard.
