In a recent interview with NYLON Guys, Lil Wayne talks about when he had multiple Seizures.

“I don’t remember anything about the experience,” Lil Wayne says during an interview from NYLON Guys that was excerpted on rap-up.com. “I don’t mean to sound bad, but it wasn’t no life-changing thing. I shot myself when I was 12. I grew up in Hollygrove. I’ve seen way worse.”


On his love for music:

“All I am is music. That’s all I do and all I know, 366 days a year, 25 hours a day, eight days a week. This is my life and what I breathe. This isn’t something I do. It’s who I am.”

On stepping up:

“I was always ready for the call. That’s the best way to explain it. Wayne’s always ready. When it’s my turn, I make way more than the most of it. If you’re ready when they call you, and you make the most of your time, then they’ll never stop calling you.”

On his writing process:

“I’m just a regular street nigga that’s a little smarter than the rest. I rap whatever comes up in my head. Whatever rhymes with the next word and how I’m feeling. I start rapping and we find something within what I just said and make a song out of it.”

On weed:

“I don’t know how it works, but I know that I need weed… extra when I’m creating. It helps in a major way.”

On being only about the music:

“When I first started doing it, you only did it to be the best – not to have a hot song or popularity or for Instagram or Twitter. I’m one of the last of a dying breed… the ones who are only about the music. You have to want to be unforgettable. The only other people who I can think of like that are Kanye and Beyonce.”
