Lil Wayne, the self proclamed “Best Rapper Alive” sat down with Sway from MTV news to discuss YMCM’s superstars Drake and Nicki Minaj. During the interview Wayne tells Sway he thinks Drake is better than him and how he has let Nicki take more control over her lyrics and image. See what he had to say.
Wayne’s thoughts on Drake: “The first thing I said was this kid’s a superstar, I don’t think you can remember, but I did some interviews back then when they were asking me about him and I said he’s better than me. I can’t sing. I can make a song, but this kid has the actual R&B presence. Then he’s one of the dopest lyricists. That right there, he has a welcoming appearance. I knew he was something bigger than something I had envisioned for my company when I ran into this kid.”
On Nicki Minaj and her career: I can’t front, I just thought she was going to be the new female MC that none of these other female MCs can touch,” Wayne said about Nicki. “But now, she’s blossomed into a megastar with this new attitude and this style. Now when I talk to her, I just tell her, ‘Do what you do, baby.’ I used to be able to go into the studio and say, ‘Nah, don’t say that, don’t say that.’ You know, ‘That was better.’ Now, do what you do, baby. I don’t have a clue about what you’re doing right now, but it’s working, do it
