Lil Wayne Talks Skateboarding, Pu**y, & His Legacy in CRWN Part 2

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne’s hour-long conversation with Elliott Wilson continues. In Part 2 of his CRWN interview at SXSW, the Young Money chief spoke about skateboarding, his prison memoir, and sports (His favorite teams are the Boston Red Sox, Green Bay Packers, and L.A. Lakers).

He defended his excessive use of “pussy” in his lyrics and even joked about dedicating an entire album to it. “Now that would make me do another solo album,” he said.

But he is trying to challenge himself to step outside the box on Tha Carter V. “This album, I’m trying to approach other subjects.”

He also took questions from fans and even accepted a demo from one audience member.

Plus, find out why Beyoncé inspired Weezy to go harder and how he wants to be remembered.

On Cash Money’s successful run: “‘Til this day I still see Slim smiling about music and still see Baby impressed by music he hearing by me. Man, we still doing this. And to know that we’re still relevant, we ain’t just doin’ it for ourselves. We doin’ it ’cause we actually have to and we have to for the fans. It’s unbelievable.”

On sports: “It’s a passion, so it’s not nothing that I have to go study. When you passionate about it, the knowledge comes.”

On writing a book about his Rikers Island prison experience: “I kept a ‘journal’ when I was in there, I did that for myself. I started writing shit down everyday, so [manager Cortez Bryant] thought it would be a good idea. He was like, ‘Man, if you don’t mind, if you could get me those shits that you wrote everyday, I could make a book out of that. People wanna see that.’ I was like, ‘Honestly, Tez, I ain’t do nothing.’ Literally it would be like, ‘I went to the day room today. Played cards. I whipped a ni**a ass in Uno.’ He was like, ‘People wanna read that.’ I was like, ‘You sure? I guess. You’re never wrong, my ni**a.’ So that’s what the book is gonna be. I ain’t writing no book. That’s what the book is, my jail journal.”

On skateboarding: “I’m dedicated to anything I do. Anything I do, I do it in abundance. I said, ‘Let me get me a skateboard.’ I ain’t gon’ do nothin’ once. So I put a skate ramp on my roof and started busting my ass everyday ’til I got it right. Now I can’t stay off that motherfu**er. I’ve been off my fuckin’ board for too long ’cause I’ve been in the studio everyday.”

On why he raps about “pussy” so much: “Why wouldn’t I? What you want me to talk about, the world? I ain’t no goddamn professor. Ya’ll gotta remember, I started doing this shit at 8.”

On his verse on Destiny’s Child’s “Soldier”: “That set me off. Them little eight bars right there, that got me there boy. If you ask me why, it was Beyoncé. That shit was big.”

On his legacy: “I would like to be remembered as a humble, good soul. Good spirit, good soul, like a Willie Nelson, like a Snoop Dogg. Before I used to be shooting more for a Biggie, Pac, Jay-type title. But now I think my history already done that. I want to be remembered as, ‘Man, that ni**a was cool. He did great ass music and that’s who he is.’”
