On the latest episode of “Young Money Radio,” Lil Wayne and Eminem spoke candidly about their experience in the rap game. At one point during their conversation, Weezy and Eminem both admitted to googling their own lyrics, so that they don’t repeat bars.

“I try to listen to the new music and I can get a little buzz – and go [in the studio] and kill something, but I still try to go off my regular procedure, and that’s just my natural inspiration,” the New Orleans native explained. “When you’ve made so many songs about everything it gets a little tricky,” Eminem added.

As REVOLT readers might recall, Tunechi made the announcement that he would be joined by the “Stan” musician just hours before the scheduled time. “Ready for some real GOAT talk?! Pull up at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET. A convo with me and Mr. Mathers. #YoungMoneyRadio LIVE from my Miami studio on @applemusic,” he wrote at the time.

Since launching “Young Money Radio,” Weezy has been joined by well-known figures in the music scene. Most recently, Drake called into the show and opened up about wanting to get back into the studio with his mentor. The “Mrs. Officer” rhymer also provided some insight into their recording process.

“Now, something about me and Drizzy’s songs that we do together, we are both perfectionists,” Wayne reasoned . “So, it’s not like you send me a joint, I’m going to throw a verse on there. We got a standard we got to live up to, we got a track record and a legacy we gotta always protect. And then on top of that, it’s like we have this thing where it’s like, well, if I’ma send you a joint and I’m going to go first, first of all – I already know, it’s like, all right, I know this man’s about to go crazy on me.”
