Lil Wayne Doesn’t Know Who 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert or Kodak Black Are
Lil Uzi Vert has responded to Wayne saying he didn't recognize his name. See the tweet below:
Lil Wayne talked to the New York Times about his new memoir Gone 'Til November on Wednesday (Oct. 12), and during the conversation he was asked what he thought about the new generation of rappers like 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert and Kodak Black. His answer is fucking hilarious.
"I swear to God I didn’t know you were saying people’s names just now, so that should probably answer that question," answers Wayne with what you can only imagine to be a blank face. "I just do my own thing."
Wayne fans should know that he notoriously only listens to his own music, so it's no surprise he isn't up on new rappers like that. But the way he worded it—to say he didn't even realize those were names the reported was listing—makes it all the funnier.
To be clear, at least three of those rappers (21 Savage not included) wear some of Wayne's influence on their sleeve, so to hear that Wayne isn't aware of how his DNA still swirls around in the younger generation adds even more humor to his response.
Elsewhere in the interview, Wayne touches on the status of Tha Carter V, saying it's completely finished and "so much better than everything I’ve ever heard. Not what’s going on right now — everything I’ve ever heard."
