LIL WAYNE SPEAKS ON SIGNING DRAKE AND NICKI MINAJ

With the upcoming ‘Drake Vs. Lil Wayne’ tour and ‘Tha Carter V’ set to release any time this year, Lil Wayne has been quite busy. The new XXL issue is set to hit newsstands soon and Young Money’s president, Lil Wayne, is on the cover.

By now I’m sure most are familiar with the story of how Drake signed with Lil Wayne. The epic phone call that happened while Drake was getting his hair cut. The reason behind one of ‘So Far Gone’s’ standout tracks, “November 18th”. If you aren’t familiar, Jas Prince heard Drake’s music via Myspace and passed it on to Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne in turn called Drake and flew him out to Houston (Nov 18th) and the rest is of course history.

In this newest issue of XXL, Lil Wayne speaks on signing both Drake and Nicki Minaj. Lil Wayne admits it took him a while to get into Drake’s music, but things changed once he heard him on one of his own beats. “But [Drake] was spitting and singing and killing that too. It took a while though. It wasn’t until I heard him spitting on one of my beats when I was like, ‘This fool’s retarded.”,says Lil Wayne.
