Weezy’s Influences

Lil Wayne is influenced by musicians other than his daddy The Birdman:

“I am music. That’s me, Jack. I found a new love for music, and I got to owe it to a lot of people in the game. They don’t even know. I got to owe a lot to T-Pain. He made me really look at myself. I always look at somebody like, ‘I can’t do what you do, but man, I damn sure wish I could.’ So when I figure out what I could do about that, I go and do it. So every time I get a chance to say it, T-Pain, Prince, Wyclef, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz — all these are people I looked at the past two years. I viewed them seriously and was like, ‘Wow, I could do that without being totally them.’ I can present it as Lil Wayne.”

Wow, he put T-Pain in the same category as Prince, Wyclef, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, and Lenny Kravitz. That just goes to show you where the music game is headed.

    I agree T Pain?? But the dude is a fluke he use to ride Jiggas D.I. all day now he replaces him with T. Pain since Jigga was like Nukka PULEASE.

    I really don’t understand why people give T-Pain a hard time. He is the Roger Trautman of his day and he is damn good at it. I don’t want everyone to start doing it (Snoop), but for him it works.

    I think he was trying to say that these people are original, that’s what makes them special…however I don’t see where Lil Wayne is an original or that he changed the rap game so much that it left you with the same feelings as Prince or Erkyah….

  • Southern Belle 225

    Um, he can do what they can do? I don’t think so! He needs to put the syrup, weed, coke and whatever else he uses down and NEVER pick it up again! Little Ass Monkey!

  • jusplayit04

    @ Bird

    So true

  • jusplayit04

    @ Anonymous3-the fire whatever

    If Lil Wayne isn’t original what other rapper can you name with his style or flow that you know or knew of?

  • beautiful b

    oooh my goodness, so disrespectful (in my coming to america accent)

  • http://www.entertainmentundergroundmag.com Chocolate

    All he did was say how T-pain helped him .. Not a big deal TP is doing his thang now ..

  • what??????????

    He’s another cat I be glad when his career is over cause dude is straight up wack. Not to mention his ass is a poser and gay!

  • tj

    Oh please for this man to think for a second that he is half as innovative as Prince, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, or Wyclef is simply a side effect of his much storied cocaine abused.

  • Hot brownie mix

    Yes whats up with that. T.PAIN..lol Thats funny.. You must want him to star on your next album Wayne

  • Just Sit and Be Bajan

    Oh I would do Weezy in the parking lot for free. He’s so fine reminds me of ex.

  • Southern Belle 225

    @jusplay it…I’m from where he’s from and I think he’s just awful. Now, he makes some good songs, I won’t lie, but I don’t think there is anything great about him other than he knows how to lay down a good hook. I don’t know how anyone can say that he is an educated rapper. Everytime he opens his mouth to talk, I get embarrassed for him.

  • and another one...

    Homo thuggery at its worst – Weezy needs to sit down somewhere, preferably in rehab.

  • establishedat20

    @SOUTHERN BELLE

    DO YOU HONESTLY THINK THAT WAYNE ISNT EDUCATED?(ALL DRUG ALLOCATIONS ASIDE)

    SWEETY LISTEN TO THE CARTER 1,2,AND 3 AND I BET YOU CHANGE YOUR OPINION JUST BASED OFF OF THOSE ALBUMS.
