Lil Wayne Admits He Hadn’t Known Of XXXTentacion Until His Posthumous Feature On ‘Tha Carter V’
While late rapper XXXTentacion never knew that his vocals would eventually end up on Lil Wayne‘s long-awaited project ‘Tha Carter V,’ Weezy recently admitted something, or rather someone, unknown to him also.
In addition to opening up on why he hadn’t included Drake on ‘C5,’ Wayne also told Elliott Wilson, for his CRWN interview on Tidal, that he hadn’t known of X until Mack Maine brought him his vocals to check out ahead of the collaboration.
So, he explains, “That was my big homie Mack’s idea. He came to New Orleans to do something for like a day or two, and he came back and said I have something I want you to hear. That was the first time hearing my mom on the song, so when he played that, then he played the song…May he rest in peace, but I didn’t know. Y’all know I don’t listen to nothing but myself cause I work too much, so I didn’t know who XXXtentacion was. So Mack had to explain the whole story to me right then and there. I had to google and all that and I found out, figured everything out. It was easy. It wasn’t such a thing as yes or no, it was let me get my verses together.”
Additionally, the track referenced is the second song “Don’t Cry,” produced by Z3n and Ben Billions.
