Lil Wayne Isn’t Speaking To Birdman Anymore

“I’m super-numb to it, to tell you the truth.”

February 19, 2015

Rolling Stone got Lil Wayne on the phone last week, and while he was expectedly tight-lipped about his gargantuan lawsuit against the Cash Money label ("That's a legal matter, homeboy"), he confirmed that he's no longer speaking to the label's honcho Birdman. "I have no words," he told the publication. "I'm super-numb to it, to tell you the truth...I'm human, but it's nothing a good blunt can't cure."

He also confirmed that The Carter V is 100% finished ("Cake baked, icing on top, name on top, candles lit,") but that he'll be releasing The Free Weezy Album first, for free, in March. "I'm working on it every day, man. I guarantee it's going to be something dope. If you don't want a musician being creative, don't get The Free Weezy Album." The rap vet also expressed his love for Rae Sremmurd and Migos (we like them too!) and confirmed that the evolving nature of slang is making him feel old: "Sometimes I don't know what the hell they're talking about on Instagram. I had to call [Wayne's daughter Reginae Carter, like, 'What the hell is "on fleek"?'" Maybe if he watched My Super Sweet 16 he'd be more in touch.
