We don’t hear much from Lil Wayne these days.
Sure, stories and rumors from dubious sources find themselves plastered on front pages; but we hear little from Wayne himself as to how he’s feeling. After rocking the stage at the Bud Light Party Convention, that also featured an opening performance from Chino Y Nacho, Wayne kindly answered a couple questions about his partnership with Bud Light and his mood towards the Hip Hop world in its present day.
Being one of the rappers to really bring mixtape culture into the mainstream, what are your thoughts on what a lot of rap fans currently see as an over-saturation in music releases?
OVERSATURATION CAN BE GOOD. THE DIGITAL AGE IS GIVING THESE KIDS MORE ACCESS TO HAVE PLENTY OF DIFFERENT OPTIONS TO THE MUSIC THEY LOVE AT THEIR FINGER TIPS.
As a seasoned artist, someone who’s experienced most the corners of the Hip Hop world, what advice would you give to young artists who are looking to snag their first deal?
I WOULD TELL THEM TO KEEP GRINDIN. IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF DONT STOP! THIS GENERATION HAS PLENTY OF PLATFORMS TO DROP THEIR MUSIC THAT I DIDN’T HAVE. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM!
Speak on partnering with bud light and what it means to be performing at their party convention?
BUD LIGHT IS A RESPECTABLE BRAND AND IT WAS AN HONOR TO PERFORM FOR THEIR EVENT. HOPE IT WILL BE THE FIRST OF MANY THINGS WE CAN DO TOGETHER
It’s good to hear positivity coming from Wayne’s camp, especially when it’s in all caps. The performance with Bud Light has come and gone as a success, which bodes well for their upcoming Party Convention with Big Sean. These Bud Light collaborations are definitely something to look forward to.
