“Mayweather called him in 2013 for his fight against Guerrero at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
“Floyd told me he respected my work ethic. He said he respected everything I’m about,” Lil Wayne said. “He said he heard about the way I work and all the music I put out. He told me that as soon as we were done talking, I was going back into the studio, and he’s that way too, right back into the gym. He said he would really love if I would bring him out for the fight. I was honored.
“He asked me how much money. I told him absolutely zero dollars bro, come on!”‘
