Lil Wayne Listens to Odd Future + A$AP Ferg, Doesn’t Know Where Hip-Hop Is At
Wayne explained that his music of choice when he skateboards includes some of his peers as well as newcomers in the rap game.
“I listen to a lot of Odd Future. I’ve been listening to a lot of old stuff, though,” he said. “Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of [Bone Thugs-n-Harmony]. ‘East 1999,’ that album. Stuff like that. The first album.”
When asked about today’s hip-hop scene, Wayne said he is amazed by some of the creative videos that the young artists are putting out.
“I don’t know where hip-hop is at,” he said. “I just listen to the old stuff, and my television stay 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.”
