Lil Wayne Gives Back for Thanksgiving

Lil Wayne

In the spirit of the holidays, Lil Wayne returned to his hometown of New Orleans to pass out free turkeys as part of Cash Money’s turkey giveaway on Friday (Nov. 18). He was joined by his YMCMB family members Birdman and Slim for the 16th annual tradition.

“It’s actually been my first time back here for the past eight or nine years and they’ve been doing this for fifteen years,” Weezy told MTV News. “Me just being super busy, always on tour or something like that. But this is amazing, especially experiencing it now from this point of view, a 29-year-old perspective of a person with everything—not everything—a person with the things that he needs in place.”

The multi-platinum rapper explained how it feels to share his good fortune with others. “I’m able to give. Those times I did it years ago, I was just a kid and I was just doing it because Baby and Slim, we were giving away turkeys at a park,” he said. “Now it’s a totally different feeling because I can actually give you that and say here, ‘Happy Thanksgiving,’ and I can provide that for you. That’s a different feeling in general and it’s a beautiful feeling overall.”

Added Baby, “For me to see that they see us hopefully as inspiration to them, [then] something positive could come out of it. But we once was them.”
