Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne does not hold back on analyzing his position in the music industry and explained what separates him from other artists in a new NYLON Guys feature.
Within his feature, Weezy F. Baby detailed his dedication to music-making.
“When I first started doing it, you only did it to be the best—not to have a hot song or popularity or for Instagram or Twitter. I’m one of thelast of a dying breed…the ones who are only about the music. You have to want to be unforgettable. The only other people who I can think of like that are Kanye [West] and Beyoncé.” (NYLON Guys)
