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.
