Tyler the Creator wants to produce for Lil Wayne
Odd Future can now add Lil Wayne to their already-rabid fanbase.
While on the set of Birdman’s “Y.U. Mad” video in Miami on October 15, Weezy — who was rocking a MellowHype T-shirt — told MTV News how he supports the Cali collective. “I just rock with ‘em. Shout-out my man Taco; that’s my dude,” Weezy F. said of OF and Taco in particular. “I’m just real cool with the homies. Shouts out, Tyler.”
Well, for OF de facto frontman Tyler, the Creator, the admiration is mutual. “Wayne’s cool. I ran into him at my hangout back home, and he’s just cool,” Tyler told MTV News.
Tyler also has dreams of working with Wayne, but he hasn’t yet built up the courage to tap his manager Christian Clancy to help put the plan in motion. “I actually have this beat that I want him on, but I was too scared to get it to Clancy to get it to them, but Wayne’s cool.”
When they met, the two rappers didn’t get to speak long, and it was Weezy who dominated the conversation.
“I wanted to kinda fan out and sh–,” Tyler admitted, “But he gave me a speech about how happy he was that I won a VMA and that seeing my mom go crazy kinda made him feel like he won it too, because that sh– was real as f—.”
