Live From Rikers: Lil Wayne Talks Fan Love, Eminem’s Support, & Self-Reflection

Lil Wayne used his phone privileges to call up Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex from Rikers Island on Tuesday (Aug. 3). Lil Tunechi, who’s due to be released from jail in November, spoke about all the love he’s received from his fans, the first two rappers he wants to record with once he leaves jail, receiving Eminem’s support, how often he calls Drake and Nicki Minaj, and which Young Money member he speaks with every day. He also reflected on how his time behind bars will change him.

“I definitely [will] move more carefully. I definitely take heed to my situation and my status,” he said. “Everybody says that you’re here for a reason, so I promise you Flex I try to find out that reason every day. I search for that reason. I think when I get out, that’ll be the only time I know the answer.”
