Lil Wayne is undoubtedly one of the most prolific rappers of all time. In a recent interview with The Bumbu Room, Weezy talked about the music he enjoys listening to. To the surprise of many, Wayne says he doesn’t listen to any hip-hop, except for himself and Tech N9ne.
“I listen to music that’s not hip-hop all the time because I don’t listen to no other hip-hop but my damn self,” he said. “Of course, you got Anita Baker, Keith Sweat, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Tech N9ne — if you want to call that hip-hop — Judas Priest, Lamb Of God, Nirvana, Blink 182, [you] name it.”
Wayne also goes on to talk about new artists and the state of current hip hop. “The new hip-hop, I love it. I love that music — it changed, you know? ‘Cause, back in the G, you had to spit your heart out,” he said. “It’s ‘let’s just make something that’s cool to hear. We don’t have to listen to it’ — listening is different from hearing.”
