Lil Wayne Speaks On Verzuz
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Weezy shared who he believes would be a worthy contender for the live-streamed concert battle.
“I was interested in Mixtape Weezy going against Lil Wayne. That would have been crazy.”

The Rapper Talks Forgetting “Tha Carter” Mixtape Series Amid His Plans To ‘Never’ Retire
During the interview, the rapper was also questioned about his ‘Tha Carter III’ mixtape, which is reaching its 15th anniversary on June 10. The rapper, who says he works “every day,” candidly explained that he cannot differentiate between all the series’s projects.
“I’m going to be so honest with you: I don’t know Tha Carter III, Tha Carter II, Tha Carter One from Tha Carter IV. And that’s just my God’s honest truth. You could lie, you could ask me [about] such and such song, I wouldn’t even know what we talking about. So it holds no significance to me at all.”
Then, he went on to delve into his strenuous career and recording schedule.
“I work every day, bro — every single day. And also, I always look at it as the curse part of the gift and the curse. I believe that [God] blessed me with this amazing mind, but would not give [me] an amazing memory to remember this amazing shit.”
Lastly, Wayne explained that despite his decades-long career, he won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
“The motivation is to show them why I’m still that dude… When you’re an artist — a real artist like myself, I was born this way. So I don’t think that the real true artists and pioneers, they never retire. They died doing this.”
