Where is hip-hop? Lil Wayne doesn't seem to know.
He tells XXL that he's aware that hip-hop is in a state of 911 and reveals that he's been keeping his distance. Weezy says, "I don’t know where hip-hop is at. I just listen to the old stuff, and my television stays on SportsCenter. Even when I’m flipping through the channels, I stumble across MTV or BET or whatever, if I stop and watch that video, it’s because I haven’t seen that video. I’m so amazed. I don’t know if it’s new. I don’t know who the person is."
Wayne also says he's been doing a lot more skateboarding then making music of late and warns us to expect his next project, I Am Not a Human Being Two, to be on the "underground" side.
MY 2 CENT:
- Arguably the biggest name in hip-hop doesn't know what's going on in hip-hop? Sorry, not buying it.
- Sometimes it's questionable whether Lil Wayne knows where he is.
- The YMCMB roster might want to be checking their options right about now.
