Lil Wayne Calls Jay Z His Idol
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Lil Wayne is currently at odds with his once father figure Birdman, and it’s all because Birdman and Cash Money Records keep delaying his upcoming studio album.
While it remains unclear why the album keeps getting pushed back, Birdman’s new protegé Young Thug has been taking shots at Weezy on social media and some suspect he even had one of his boys shoot up Weezy’s tour bus recently.
Lil Wayne may be done with Birdman and Cash Money, but he’s made up with his former foe Jay Z.
In fact, he now claims Jigga is his idol.
At his recent performance at KMEL Summer Jam in Oakland the other night, he tells the crowd:
“I just signed a deal with my mother f-cking idol Jay Z.”
Many suspected the announcement means he inked a deal with Roc Nation, but the rapper’s rep claims he was actually referring to joining Tidal as an artist owner.
