“I watch sports, sports, sports, sports,” attests Lil Wayne on 2006’s “Sportscenter.” So ever the sports fanatic, it wasn’t a surprise to see the rapper last night (February 16) on his second home as of late, SportsCenter.
Like he always does at this time, the Louisianimal touched on sports, sports, and well, more sports. “Any studio I go to, any room I’m in, any place I’m at if there’s a television, that person who’s involved with the television is already alarmed to know “What channel is ESPN, Lil Wayne is on his way,”” the rapper avowed.
But when sports wasn’t a topic, Wayne talked music. At the moment, Wayne is currently prepping a joint album with 2 Chainz, titled ColleGrove. While discussing the recent debut of ColleGrove’s first single “Rolls Royce Weather Everyday,” Wayne revealed to SC host Stan Verrett that he wasn’t actually privy to the song’s run-on title. In fact, according to him, “That [was] my first time hearing the title myself.”
“The title was [originally] called “Everyday” and actually, we shot a video for a whole other song like two days before that,” he shared. “So when I got on set [of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon] to rehearse and they cut that song on and The Roots started playing, I didn’t know what was going on truthfully. It was all brand new to me.”
Whether you want to call it “Rolls Royce Weather Everyday” or “Everyday,” the song is the first offering from the collaborative LP, which is expected to arrive “soon.”
Another topic of discussion was Cam Newton and the outpour of critics that have swarmed his way following Super Bowl 50. Calling the naysayers “wack,” Wayne showed support for the star quarterback and recent NFL MVP. “This is entertainment, this is sport. Let a person be a person other than that, I don’t get it.”
