Lil Wayne recently had an interview with XXL Magazine. The Louisiana-native shared that he doesn’t really follow the present hip hop music or stay up on what’s popular and that he listens more to old school hip hop.
Wayne admitted that he does, in fact ,still listen to new, fresh artists such as A$AP Ferg and Odd Future, but he’s not in on what’s hot.
“I don’t know where hip-hop is at. 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.”
Wayne also reveals that he’s been on his skateboard more than in the studio lately. He went on to describe his I Am Not A Human Being II as “underground.”
