As part of Noisey’s “Year Of Lil Wayne” series, they sat down with Q-Tip to talk about Weezy.
During the interview, which you can read here, Tip called Weezy one of his favorite MC’s.
He said, “I love Wayne. I think he’s a fucking beast. He’s an ill lyricist. He’s a prodigy. I love to do stuff with him. And that’s my boy, too. We talk sports and all of that shit. Yeah man, he’s acutely intelligent. Highly intelligent, skilled. He’s just got so much soul. I could go on and on about him. He’s one of my favorites, as an MC, as a visionary—like, he’s just dope. He’s just so dope. He’s fucking brilliant… he’s just a cool motherfucker, man. He really is. He’s a special guy. And I really love, like, Tha Block Is Hot, 500 Degreez, all that early stuff, too.”
