Lil Wayne Has Not Heard Drake or Nicki Minaj’s Albums

Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne delivered a shocker to Angie Martinez when he revealed that he hasn’t heard Drake or Nicki Minaj’s platinum-selling albums in full.

“I never heard Drake’s album. I never heard Nicki’s album,” he told the Hot 97 personality. “I swear to God. I work too hard.”

The news may not come as such a surprise to his Young Money protégés. “They would probably guess it. I’m always focused on something and it captures my whole attention, I can’t do nothing else,” he added, making sure not to offend them. “Drake and Nick, don’t take that no kinda way.”

Due to his hectic schedule, the “6 Foot 7 Foot” rapper also hasn’t seen Toya Carter and daughter Reginae’s BET reality show “Toya: A Family Affair” and is not even curious about it. “I let her do her thing,” he said about his ex-wife. “It probably comes on at a time when I’m not at the house.”

However, he has had time to listen to Kanye West and Rick Ross’ latest albums, and his favorite show right now is MTV’s “Jersey Shore.”

    But wait Reply:

    @Brionna, but then again if you think about it that cant be true atleast for nicki’s album cause he was in jail the whole time during her recording process and the finalizing of it by the time he came out of jail nicki would have already had to turn in her mastered version of her album to the people and i know they dont have emails in jail …. but this doesnt suprise me cause wayne didnt even know the name of nicki’s album till a fan told him in a letter she said the name of her album in august and he didnt find out the name till october

    He didn’t listen to them because, both Drake and Sicki Minaj are getting ROBBED!!!!!! Good for both of them, too cocky and talentless. Nicki album is POP, Drake album was luke warm. I’ve NEVER held Nicki album, heard the songs and never will, NO ORIGINALITY, the whole style is borrowed. Drake on the other hand, has a great rap voice, but the cockiness turns me off. Shame, their own BOSS, dont listen to their music. WOW!!!

    Because Nicki sucks, and so does Drake. Both of them are cocky for NO reason. Sicki Minaj is a biter, Lil’ Kim wanna be. Drake is NOTHING new. Both Suck…Good Choice Wayne!!!!!

    @MakeMeFartKThx, That Ain’t no reason to tell somebody to take their lives. Now I like Nicki Minaj but not that much because the way I see it is that Nicki Minaj didn’t take all of Lil Kims swag because Nicki is a pop star while Lil Kim is real Hip Hop. Now Drake is good but he does do a little bit too much.

    @MakeMeFartKThx, what is reality? You create a view on someone you don’t know, express your opinion about them without a valid reason and you pretend like you know them. What is reality? Get on with your lives like normal people: earn money, be happy because that is the only thing your going to get in life. Stop saying this and saying that as your wasting your time. In layman’s terms you should get a life instead of expressing foul derogative views. Freedom of speech doesn’t justify your actions, nor does any other pathetic reason. You create an imaginary world just to hide the poignancy of your own life. That, to be honest, is the saddest part about you.

    Wayne does need to take the time to listen to their albums, cause they are good but not that much ain’t in to pop or cockiness, but they are your artisits and with that comes the resposebilities of being a good label president and reviewing their work.

    mistwalker Reply:

    @Mr Xclusive, i 2nd ur comment these idiots make me laught they hate on almost every one, but i it is possible when hes in album mode u don’t want other ppl music in ur memory. eg before enimen signed 50 he said he had 2 finish his album 1st then be abale to hear it some ppl dont understand it messes with u while recording your own music, but he put his foot in his mouth when he said he heard rick ross album full but not his own artists. it sorta makes his artists look lesser as 2 how much he cares 4 them. cant wait 4 the carter though

    WTF Wayne? I mean really? -_- everytime I read a post about Wayne on Rap-up I do this face “-_-” How can he not hear Drake’s? His entire album was all over the radio stations all summer…

    [Reply]

  26. Shady

    I really dont understand why people give a shit if he listens to their albums or not. Why is that so important for some people? Nicki & Drake didnt made the album for wayne, but for their fans who spend their money on it lol.

    [Reply]

  27. p

    actually he said on hot 97 that he had not heard the FULL versions of both albums, he said he had the songs emailed to him and he liked them, but he hadn’t been presented with the actual albums.

  29. kellie

    LOL personally i feel like this is a slap in the face sorta to both drake and nicki considering in this same interview he said that hes heard and that his favorite albums out right now are KANYES AND RICK ROSS’s …i mean kanyes came out the same day as nicki and hes had time to heard that and ross’s came out the same month’s as drake’s and his had time to hear that one . Wayne should just admit it has nothing to do with time its just that he doesnt care or want to hear nicki’s and drake albums .

    personally i love both albums But nicki has even said before that wayne DOESNT like the way that nicki RAPs now that he liked the way old nicki rapped he even kicked her out of YM at one point cause she said she couldnt really rap anymore but i dont really understand why he wouldnt listen to drake * shrugs*

  34. ilovehiphop

    Evidently if u r a Nicki Minaj fan than u dnt know hip hop she’s is a POP artist not a rapper. && it has been PROVEN that she doesn’t write her OWN songs. Just b/c u seen her “write” Romans Revenge doesn’t mean she writes ALL of her music.if u r a Nicki Minaj fan u r n high school or lower && u dnt know HIP HOP MC Lyte Nikki D those r real HIP HOP rappers its called talent. Hip hop isn’t like how it use to be. Its all about IMAGE now not LYRICS. Not the PRODUCER but lyrics. Hip Hop starts wit poetry && Nicki isn’t a poet.
