FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS ’08: Lil’ Wayne: Space Oddity 2001

[Editor’s Note: With the new year around the corner, XXLmag.com looks back at some of our greatest stories and video features of 2008.]

XXLMag.com: I got a chance to come down to Calliope projects and Magnolia when y’all were first coming out, when y’all flew down a bunch of journalists in ‘98 or ’99. No Limit was poppin’ around that time. Y’all seemed like a smaller crew, but they seemed like an army. For y’all to do what you did, as far as becoming successful, what was the plan?

Lil Wayne: The plan? We real niggas. No plan, at all. No strategy, continue to do what we do. We never sat down and said, “You gonna do this, you gonna do that, you need to watch this.” Naw, we just did what we did and it worked.

XXL: Was there a mutual respect between Cash Money and No Limit?

Wayne: I think the fact that No Limit was so wack helped us, literally. ‘Cuz they was wack and they was big and they represented New Orleans. So that automatically makes someone else from New Orleans get looked at and we was right up next. They started comparing, which was the best thing that could have happened for us. Once they started comparing they saw that there was no comparison. We have skills we could really rap, we could really do what we doing. [Master P] had a trillion rappers that probably one of them could rap and that was Mystical…and Solider Slim, they didn’t get him ‘til after. So I thank them for being so garbage.

XXL: Did y’all ever have to do shows on the same bill with them?

Wayne: Yeah, but you know like, P was surrounded by artists. He had 30, 40 artists. We got 30, 40 niggas with us. We just 4, 5 deep with artists, me, Juvie, B.G., Turk, Fresh and Baby. That’s the only artists, you know? As for all these other niggas with grills and tattoos in they face, they ready to knock your motherfuckin’ head off. P ain’t stupid. Like I said, he was surrounded by artists, he paid those people to be around him to rap and record and make music. Not to be a gang or go down with him when it go down. A lot of people got to look at it like that, too. Yeah, they seemed like an army, an army full of artists. Cash Money is a [real] army, we got solders.

XXL: When you were rocking with Mannie Fresh, was it getting to a point where it boxed you in creatively? You did so many joints on that same kind of rhythm…

Wayne: Exactly…I’ma say, now, being the artist that I am now and knowing how creative I can be and how far you can go with your mind and your thoughts with this shit, I’ll say yeah, I was shoved in. Then I’d probably say no, ‘cuz he’s the best, but now that I’m older and see where my style has went I couldn’t possibly have got to this, doing all those songs like that. ‘Cuz to sell those songs the right way you have to do it and say it exactly.

XXL: If you were trying to spit now like you were back then…

Wayne: Nah, it would sound like the Hot Boys featuring some nigga spittin’.

XXL: What was it like when you got that first beat from someone other than Fresh? You got the shackles off and you were excited?

Wayne: It wasn’t never that serious. Getting all excited ‘cuz I got a beat from somebody. That’s hoe shit.

XXL: You still haven’t been on a Dr. Dre joint or is that something that you would want to do?

Wayne: Um, I did. I been on a Dr. Dre joint, I wrote on [the] Detox album. I been on a collabo…um, I don’t really be trippin’ on that shit. If anything, any motherfucka can get in there and make the beat that they want. That don’t really be important to me. The music, just as long as it’s good. I got a lot of my producers; I like to mess with the dudes I came in with.

XXL: Fans are always, “Yo, Wayne gotta be on this or Nas gotta be on a Premier track, why hasn’t Jay-Z rolled with Ski…”

Wayne: What the fans need to know is that niggas got prices. A lot of the songs you want a nigga on, those songs don’t meet that standard. Don’t meet that price. There’s a lot of songs I’ve recorded, hot songs out right now, that I ain’t on, ‘cuz niggas can’t do that price. We have mouths to feed, for real. A lot of times people get that fucked up, ‘cuz we not doing what they doing everyday. We got mouths to feed.

XXL: Are you speaking on them wanting a certain amount or you wanting a certain amount?

Wayne: Oh it’s never a them wanting a certain amount, ‘cuz it ain’t that serious, we don’t want you that bad on our song. It’s me. My amount. You got to meet that standard and I don’t be trying to lower it, ‘cuz one day it’s not gonna be able to be this high. So, I’ll lower it that day.

XXL: You’ve been documented as saying that you would charge your sister [$75,000 for a verse], is that a true statement?

Wayne: Hell yeah. The first rule in business is there is no emotion, there is no love. It’s business.

XXL: How hard is it now to keep that same credo?

Wayne: It’s not hard at all. It’s easier. It’s easier to tell you no if you about to come at me with that. Check Billboard, I’m number one right now. Respect me right now, wait for later. You want me on a song that bad respect that. I’m that nigga. You want that nigga on your song, pay for it like it’s that nigga. You go in the store and it’s that jacket that you want, leather, mink or whatever, it’s that real shit, though. Pay for it, get it.

XXL: When you go to Gucci you can’t talk them down…

Exactly. You know I ain’t about to fuck over your song. A lot of times niggas don’t be having they paper work right, though. I ain’t talking about money. Just contracts, to where they don’t even have a say so in that type of shit. Me and the artists might be cool and they’ll ask me to do a song, ‘cuz I’ma do it off top. But once they call Universal and they hit them with that price, you’ll hear that same song out with another motherfucka on it like I always do.

So there’s even more joints that you could be on?

[Eyebrows raised to express shock in the question, answers in a high pitched tone while sippin’ that drank] Mmm hmmm. [Everyone laughs] That’s the new thing right now. “Take him off, fuck it.” I done heard that on like three songs now. I listen to the radio like, “I’m on this one, cut that up.” I don’t come on that bitch, I be like dang…call Tez [Wayne’s manager] up and be like, “Nah, they did get the work right.”

Every MC that’s great, outside of sales, has had to have blood on their hands from dealing with other MCs. If you look at our generation, you look at Eminem, Jay-Z and Nas, they have all had these epic battles. Do you feel like you’re missing that from your arsenal?

I’m the new-age artist. I don’t beef. I do the song, smile, do a few dance moves, put on nice clothes, wear cologne. I don’t want to beef with you. I don’t want my music to have to go towards how I feel about you or how I feel about your music. That’s not music. Music is supposed to make the listener feel a certain way. That’s what I’m dedicated to, making your heart, making your mind, feel a certain way when you hear me. And not making a some person feel a certain way when they hear me.

So there wasn’t any strategy in you not going back at 50 Cent when he made those comments about you?

My God didn’t send me here for that, my Momma ain’t birth me for that.

What are you reading right now to help you…

I don’t read a damn thing. That’s why I don’t write music. I’m too cool to be reading and writing…I’m a very intelligent nigga. I can read like a motherfucka. I don’t want motherfuckas to think I’m illiterate.

You’re in college so…

I don’t read, other than that shit.

But we talking about books for leisure.

Nah, I’ve done that like once or twice. It’s just not my thing. I’m not into made-up stories.

You know how people get together and they like, “Yo, you read…”

I’m not even in that conversation circle. That would be crazy, I can’t answer nothing so why would I sit there and talk? I ain’t read no books. I sit and watch ESPN all day. I can tell you what happened in sports. I do what floats my boat. If you trying to figure out where I get this talk, that’s me. I’m born with that. I don’t have no brothers, no sisters. My brother is 6-years-old. My dad ain’t never had one of those. And the one I called pops, he passed. My momma, she do her cooking thing. I’m an intelligent nigga,. I just refuse to be dumb.

Is it because you were surrounded by…

No, ‘cuz my father made me this way. My father is God. I thank him everyday and night. I think I’m the perfect example of…of…pure. Meaning not planned, not scheduled, not practiced. You know how white people practice to be smart, intelligent and all that shit? You know as black people we like a certain child, a certain way, and all that will have you believing that you have to do that. Just like a motherfucka might think you have to train to be a great football player, and some nigga just walk on the team and catch 100 passes. Now we know this nigga forever, know what I mean? Shit like that so, I am the definition of pure. I have no reasons why I am the way I am. -Datwon Thomas

  • Rashad

    Weezy is real ill right now, but lets be honest before the Carter, he sounded just like B.G. Now that he has come into his own, he wants the respect that comes with it, and if that means more chips then good for him. But remember this, you do not necessarily need someone whos number one to make your song hot, a person who is hungry (also struggling) can get 20,000 dollars and kill your song. Just like you don’t need a Dre, Timbo, or Neptune beat, they are just compliments, not necessities.

  • TonyStackz

    Goddamn Look what Success Does to This Niggaz!!! I Got Luv 4 Wayne but All this talk makes me think hes full of shit I Bet he wasn’t talkin all that shit in ’04 when he was just a average
    nigga & almost nobody Besides the south
    was checkin 4 his ass lol Its Cool to be Hungry but at the same time you gotta be Humble this nigga got all this food on his table & he acts like he don’t owe nobody shit so therfore he ain’t gotta share with anybody this kinda shit actually make admire some of the greats even more than before Specially Hov the Best Rapper Alive!!
    Jay Lyrically one of the greatest & Most Successfull but I Ain’t never Heard that nigga on a interview or whatever talkin like he above his peoples From what I’ve Seen he always shows Humbleness Maybe thats the Key to a real niggas Success While others have to fake it till they make it!!!!

  • arsonist

    WOW!!!! this is the role model to our youth???? someone who says hes to cool to read and write? someone who only watches tv? wow god help our future. and i would support him if his rhymes werent all crap. “tougher than nigerian hair” “not see me like hitler” “go hard like geese erection” thats jus a few of this so called “best rapper alive”. pffff, ima chill back and listen to common, asher roth is givin that message as well, i dnt care if hes white, better than wayne. ima listen to Lupe, Nas, mos def, talib, and after that, ima go buy all classic cds cuz idk where music is goin anymore

  • Shawty J

    “I don’t read a damn thing. That’s why I don’t write music. I’m too cool to be reading and writing”

    I can’ believe he’s actually going around spreading ignorance like that.

  • mr.martin

    how can he say he dont read or write and say his paper is straight, contract wise.this dude will end up broke, guaranteed. he is syrupped up, ego on high, dumb as a doorknob and thinking shit is sweet. My man will wake up with only his shirt. co-sign on that no limit statement, but it aint like cash money were an army of rakims. only slightly better

  • TEZZY

    Dude gettin full of it i liked him better in the squad up days and somebody please tell me whats all the hype for this asher roth dude i listened to his shit and its average nothing special oh yeah other than him being white lol

  • Trickdd

    I don’t feel the shit he say’d about No Limit, No Limit Had some crazy artist like Fiend,Magic,Chopper,Currensy,Mia X,Skull Duggery,Mac,504 Boyz and then they had Snoop Dogg,Mystikal,Master P And C-Murder Haha bitch please Cash Money gotta come see No Limit

  • TEZZY

    And why the hell he dissing no limit like that talking bout cash money is a REAL ARMY he talkin like no limit was soft or something

    Why he talking master p did something cash money didnt do and that was give young niggas a chance to do something with they life now im not a no limit fan but you gotta respect P for that his hustle was soooooo sick back in the day

    I’m bout it>>>>>>>>>>Baller blockin

  • mbizzle

    lil wayne is a fucking joke, tell this mothafucker to get off that lean and start spittin like dedication 2 again

  • texasboy903

    good interview..if a nigga pretty smart, got common sense, goes to college and is rich, what the fuck does he need to read books for on his leisure time for? seriously..when u got that kind of money all of the other shit becomes irrevelant. ur job is to make music. he didnt choose to be anyones role model– raise ur own kids. now, if he didnt know how to read that would be a different story.”"just case a nigga dont read doesnt make him dumb–im pretty sure all niggas know just because a female goes to church doesnt mean she aint a freak..chuuch!

  • DA SOUTHERN REALIST

    First of all, Wayne has some nice punches here & there honestly yet 75% of his shit is mediocre bias but all hatin aside this is the type of shit you should expect from a grown ass man who kisses another grown ass man in the mouth. How can any of you be so surprised.

    As far as the No Limit comments:
    1. Master P ($500 Million Net Worth)
    and is a real gangsta not a band wagon jumpin on some gangbang shit but a certified street nigga.

    2. Mac caught a murder charge back in 98, all them Miller Boys was raised in Calliope Projects, & P is the original “Ice Cream Man” since 99 ways to die.

    3. C-Murder’ll bust wayne head all across da boot if he slide some disrespectful shit out his mouth like this on the streets.

    LAST:
    WAYNE YOU 4’11″

    SHOT YO GOTDAMN SELF IN THE ARM AT AGE 12 AFTER SCHOOL PLAYIN WITH A GUN LYING TO THE WORLD SAYING YOU GOT SHOT.

    YOU JUST BASICALLY SAID IN THIS INTERVIEW, ASIDE THE EXCUSE OF WHAT YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER DIDN’T PUT YOU HERE FOR……………..

    YOU AIN’T BOUT & DAMN SURE DON’T WANT NO DRAMA WITH NOBODY!!!

    NOW WHO BOUT IT! BOUT IT!

  • MidWestGrindin

    This nigga just exposed himself as being the biggest lame in the game making the most dough. i hope all you teeny boppers and young people read this shit in the magazine and realize dude is a real faggot. $75,000 for a verse full of hot garbage? NEGRO PLEASE. My lil neice can spit circles around this ugly ass nigga. much props for your come-up, Weezy…but yous still a bitch-made nigga. P.S. No Limit was WAY better than Cash Money back in the day. Hell if it wasn’t for Jigga jumpin on that song wit Juvie, you may have never heard of this nigga!

  • casper

    motherfucker stay contradicting himself. what a clown

  • squadwildin

    It started gettin mad confusing towards the end and he sounded defensive like his cat died or somethin. This nigga is angry at the world for whatever reason

    Mo money mo problems tho right? He says he’s found God. Now he needs Jesus. Addiction is somethin like religion and his Jesus is whats in the bottom of that cup…Give it up Wayne…Just give it up

    AY yea tezzy im feelin what you said. YOu cant knock the hustle and thats exactly what wayne is doin by bad mouthin Master P.He talkin bout all this hate he’s receiving but this is one spiteful nigga.It sounds like self hatred.

    Yea the verses be hot but to pay 75,000 for some bull shit that wont even help the artists’ album sell is dumb as fuck.You put wayne on your single, your album will most likely flop. Look at all these one hit wonders that relied on Wayne…spending money on a garbage ass verse when they should be using every dollar for promotion.

  • http://www.pimpinpens.blogspot.com enzo

    i still can’t get my head around his disrespectful comments on No Limit. To cosign the DA SOUTHERN REALIST C-Murder will wipe that lil knicca off the face of the earth for those comments and I’d rather listen to Master Ps Mr. Ice Cream Man album any day of the week over any of Waynes goofy ass rhymes. Give it up to Youngbleed, Mac, Fiend, and C-Murder. They are all better emcees than Waynes faggity ass. Fuck a lil Wayne.

  • bucsormore

  • hate hate and more hate

    Wayne is an idiot. I think he’s using his inner 50 Cent to get you niggas panties in a bunch. What I mean is 50 says dumb shit about rappers just to get a reaction.

  • Trickdd

    Lol then he says Cash Money had niggas in the streets with them at the concerts like anybodys gunna fight for Lil Wayne are baby haha BG called them boys bitches. Master P didnt need niggas from the street the niggas that was all rollin with him in No Limit where Head Bustas Wayne talking that slick shit now since he got that money and sold 2mill.

    Wow he has really proven himself over and over to be one of the dumbest human beings. Makes me sick. And Young Bleed shits all over the entire Cash Money crew army or whatever you want to call those retarded ass, slurring, man kissing bitches. No Limit killed early 90 in the North Bay and then went on to be huge rap stars in the late 90s early 00′s. Thats why Wayne needs to learn to read because every interview or any conversation for that matter he sticks his baby foot in his mouth. He is one of the reason McCain is going to win and eat this country alive.

    Man Wayne is a talented dude but this guy just inst hungry anymore and its so apparent. You listen to Carter II or Dedication 2 then listen to Carter 3, its like a completley different fuckin dude. That dude smashed through the glass ceiling and got himself on some bullshit. Wayne is destined to be irrelevant in 2 years if he keeps this kindof ignorance going. Bring back that mothafuckin Hustler Music that brough you to the table in the first place Wayne!

  • Prince Ceasar

    Lil Wayne is a bandwagon, cornball nigga. I think it’s cool that he made alot of paper, but, due is still a clown. I don’t think that there is a such thing as “being” too cool to read. Lil Wayne makes black people look bad. I hope kids don’t read that bullshit and think that it is cool.

  • jig

    Why is he beating a dead horse named No Limit,but he’s a new age artist?
    This is what our artists have been reduced to.
    Now I understand if the nigga don’t read books,that’s fine.I don’t either.(Although I read the newspaper daily.)But to reinforce the idea to black youth that reading isn’t cool,well…, isn’t cool.
    That’s exactly why they say we’re N,I,double G,E,R’s
    We all say dumb shit,though.
    Sometimes on accident,sometimes for shock value.

  • T’Keyah M

    WAYNE!!! what is on his mind when he says this crazy mess. I mean he wants to be the image of todays youth yet does and says all the WRONG things. I mean from day to day The Carter is indeed on our minds but it should make him think twice when the reason gets worse by the day. I mean lets be honest in our hearts we will always love the you Wayne we first met when he was in his teen years with chapped lips and nappy braids! Well I guess the rapper is just feelin hisself a little right now forgeting that he can be broken just as fast as he was made by the very mouth that spits his rhymes that catch and keep us!

  • grant ny

    what an idiot, he talking about his soliders in cash money??? where were they in compton when fake crips wanted beef, i guess fake crips are gullier than fake bloods, i actually like some of his stuff half of carter 3 is hot and carter 2 was fire, but hes probably the fakest rapper out thier no lie, how he blood when hes been signed from 11? fuk out of here.

  • Enlightened

    COLLEGE – COLLEGE – COLLEGE – COLLEGE – COLLEGE

    Did y’all all miss that key word? This nigga is a disgrace NOT BECAUSE HE DOESN’T READ, but because HE DOES READ and acts like that’s something to be ashamed of. Notice when the interviewer said, “but you’re in college” he didn’t say he wasn’t in college he just said, “I don’t read nothing but that shit.” Even if that’s true THAT’ ENOUGH NIGGA. Do you know how much you have to read in college? This nigga is ashamed to admit he’s in school.
    That’s some old little boy ass EPISODE OF FRESH PRINCE WHERE WILL TALKED ABOUT HIDING HIS BOOKS IN A PIZZA BOX WHEN HE WAS A KID SO HE WOULDN’T GET JUMPED ASS SHIT.

  • ZACK MORRIS

    You know the problem is wayne says what a lot of young black men are thinking. No limit was wack compared to cash money, and yea he is to cool to not read and write. But like my nigga plies said “REAL NIGGAZ EXTINCT ITS ONLY A PUCKIN PEW”. With that said a real nigga would never fix his mouth to say some bullshit like that! White people dont need to hear your tattoo on the face ass sayin you dont read or write! And wack or not No limit put it down for the south in no other way any label did. Nigga get your mind right FOR REAL!!!!

  • Nate

    I’ve already mentioned him shooting himself for years (no real Piru does that), bitchboy does not scare anyone, but the funny thing was how he rationalizes his guest verse price:

    “Exactly. You know I ain’t about to fuck over your song.”

    Such B.S. Wayne sounded lame on about a half dozen good artists I bought last year and the song he did he had the worst verse, and it made the song the worst on the album. Example 1: Kanye’s album-the Barry Bonds song.
    Example 2: Chamillionaire 2nd album which was good except for the song with Wayne. Dudes like Ye can afford it, but legit artists that are up and coming can’t afford to pay for weak crap that doesn’t make your song better.

    Wayne will squeak through college with a D average, or C- or whatever the minimum passing grade is at his school. Or they will just pass his ass so they can say Wayne is one of their alumni, and they can start looking for alumni checks from him to build new shit.

    If this nigga ever graduates, I want to see his transcripts, because I really don’t see this nigga getting more than a C in any class he takes. If he graduates Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Summa Cum Laude, then I would call for an investigation, because he probably just started paying off the professors or having his weed carriers threaten them with a beatdown if he doesn’t pass his classes.

  • SHOWTIME516

I read and write all day so I guess I’m not cool…I’m sorry but if u read or listen to most of his interviews you’ll see this guy still has some maturing to do. And he thinks God is lookin at him and really thinkin he’s PURE? where’s the knowledge in this guy?

    I had a lot of hope for Wayne after the Carter II. I truly did. He’s capable of making great music (i.e. The Dedication series, The Droughts I and II, Tha Carter II).

    Lil Wayne can rap, I like his work.

    The only problem I have when he talks about a football player who doesn’t practice or train and catch 100 passes. Who does that? Micheal Jordan is the best athlete ever and he worked harder than everyone else. You can’t compare sports with rap because rap is an art and an art is valued based on opinions, while sports is based on more objective measures like points,touchdowns,etc. Don’t compare sports to rap, rap doesn’t require nearly as much skill or dedication. I just hope the kids can see thru the bullshit.

(considering all wayne swallowers..I mean followers do as his dumb ass does) 1st how he gone diss no limit? when 50 dissed him he turned bitch talkin about god aint put him here for that..so i guess god put him here to down another black man like p huh? DONT WORRY I’LL WAIT! I know the nigga really on that dope saying shit like he too cool 2 read..I wonder do he tell his daughter not to read..Imagine how cool that shit would be? Even if he really felt like that it just was some stupid shit to say bein a nigga in a position where young kids look up 2 you. Now its gone be some fool ass k-dubble ass nigga tryin to follow wayne & be illiterate raising kids to grow up & be just like them….dumb motherfuckers that look up to dudes that kiss men..in the mouth. I wonder what else that nigga a kiss when the syrup & coke kick in…somebody call the fag & tell him 2 marilyn monroe his self(THE WHOLE BOTTLE BITCH) & save hip hop since he too cool/high 2 read the shit

    Ya’ll negative mufucka’s understand what he’s saying! He doesn’t read for fun, the man is in college so yes he does read. But I guess ya’ll better than him because reading is your hobby? He ain’t no different from the rest of the n*gga’s out here, When Sports Center’s popping everything stopping lol! I respect him, he’s gods creation and God makes no mistakes. All that disrespectful shit ya’ll writing means nothing, because only god can judge…. so why waste your time? And Wayne been said he’s in college in previous interviews, so he ain’t hiding shit. Anyway I’m out of, here fuck you haters!
