Video: Cortez Bryant Recalls The Last Time Lil Wayne Wrote Anything Down

Different than yesterday’s clip.

In the rapper’s upcoming “Behind the Music” special, set to air September 10 on VH1, he talks openly about scrapping his rhyme books during a furious recording session, where he transformed from Cash Money’s young sidekick to the label’s heavyweight superstar.

“The only way I won’t be able to rap anything I’ve written again is to record everything I’ve ever written before once,” he explained of what led to his now notebook-free style.

The result was a 35-minute freestyle called “10,000 Bars,” on which Wayne’s disjointed rhymes, parts of various working songs, become a cathartic release and set the tone for his memorable mixtape run and a series of Carter albums.

  10. The Shooter Says:

    Rappers need to learn that will be able to construct a song better if they actually took time to write it out, not everyone use the same method

  11. CiCi The Intern Says:

    Wayne ain’t ever been that great with words…

  12. The Shooter Says:

    I’ve only heard half of bp3, and it’s okay so far not something I have to finish

    I belive at teh end of the statment between before and once there should be “at”

    “The only way I won’t be able to rap anything I’ve written again is to record everything I’ve ever written before (at) once

    which would then make the following about him recoding 35 minutes relevant

    Joell Ortiz, who might not have a girlfriend, has about as many followers as people who bought Slaughterhouse. Crooked I only has as many as Ortiz, despite all of the time he spent working on those Hip-Hop Weekly freestyles. To think, he could have just written one song people actually liked.
