Lil Wayne Smoked 15 Blunts When He Was In The Studio With Machine Gun Kelly

Machine Gun Kelly’s new Hulu documentary Life In Pink came out yesterday, which tells the story of his pivot to pop punk. Possibly the most interesting part of the whole thing is his recollection of collaborating with Lil Wayne for “Drug Dealer,” and the way the iconic rapper smoked 15 blunts.

“I pressed play on the song, he’s like, ‘Is that what we’re doing?’” MGK recalled. “‘Yeah.’ He’s like, ‘Alright. You guys got time?’ ‘Yeah, for sure.’ He goes in the courtyard, smokes 15 blunts. He just takes each, his eyes are closed just playing the track over and over again. He comes back in the studio and we can see him in the courtyard. We’re just kind of sitting there amazed, like that’s the GOAT forming his thoughts around a track that we made.”

He continued, “He comes back in at 5:30 in the morning. He’s like, ‘Y’all ready?’ He goes in the booth and he lays his sh*t like, one time. It’s just like, one time.”

Kelly previously told a similar story about working with Wayne, minus the details about blunts.

Apparently MGK’s flirtation with pop punk is coming to an end for now, because a couple of months ago he said he’ll be returning to rap music. “I’m going to make a rap album for myself, for no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder,” he said in an interview.

Lil Wayne Denied Entry Into The U.K. Days Before Highly-Anticipated Performance

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne had been set to perform at the “Strawberries & Cream” festival taking place this weekend in London, making it his first performance in London since 2008. However, according to the festival, Weezy will not be able to perform due to issues customs denying him entrance into the U.K.

“Due to extreme circumstances beyond our control or influence, we are very sorry to inform you that Lil Wayne is now unable to perform at the festival on Saturday 18th June,” read a statement from the festival. “Lil Wayne has been refused entry to the U.K. directly by the Home Office in a last-minute decision. We are deeply disappointed by this sudden and negative ruling. We have received very minimal notice, and the timing of the decision is, of course, upsetting for all involved – including Lil Wayne’s fans, as well as the festival team.”

Since the announcement, Ludacris has been named as Lil Wayne’s replacement.

“In absence of any statement from Lil Wayne, we would like to apologise to everyone who was coming to see him perform at S&C. We look forward to welcoming the iconic Ludcacris to the stage instead.”

According to a Home Office spokesperson, Weezy was denied entry into the U.K. because of his arrest history. According to a spokesperson, “Any individual who has been sentenced to a custodial sentence of 12 months or more must have their application refused.”

Lil Wayne Has Been Denied Entry Into The UK For A Festival Performance Due To His Past Criminal Record

Lil Wayne had one of the greatest runs Hip-Hop has ever seen that was unfortunately derailed by label issues and legal troubles. Fortunately for Weezy and his fans, he has found a way to rise above and achieve multiple career revivals when it comes to the music. Yet, once again, Lil Wayne’s past has caught up to him as the New Orleans rapper is being denied entry into the UK days before he is set to hit the Strawberries & Creem stage on June 18. This set would have been Wayne’s first performance in the Uk in 14 years.

The rapper, now replaced by Ludacris, was apparently denied entry by the Home Office in a “last-minute decision” according to event organizers. “We are deeply disappointed by this sudden and negative ruling,” Strawberries & Creem organizers wrote in a statement. “We have received very minimal notice, and the timing of the decision is of course upsetting for all involved.”

The Home Office elaborated on their ruling in a statement to Rolling Stone: “In a statement to Rolling Stone, a Home Office spokesperson said, “Any individual who has been sentenced to a custodial sentence of 12 months or more must have their application refused.” The statement is referring to Lil Wayne’s 12-month prison sentence for weapons charges stemming from his arrest in July 2007. Though Wayne was sentenced to a year, he was released after eight months due to good behavior.

Migos Will No Longer Perform at Governors Ball, Lil Wayne to Fill In

Migos and Moneybagg Yo Perform Before Mayweather-Paul Fight

If you were looking to see Migos perform at Governors Ball 2022, it won’t happen. The forthcoming festival will not have the trio of Offset, Quavo, and Takeoff, which the festival states are due to “circumstances out of our control.”

The show’s cancellation comes as the trio is rumored to be in the midst of a breakup. A representative for Migos told TMZ the scheduled date was nixed due to Quavo filming a movie.

In replacement, Lil Wayne will take the stage for Governors Ball.

Rumors of the Migos breakup began swirling after Quavo and Takeoff released a single titled “Hotel Lobby.” Before the release, Offset and his wife, Cardi B, unfollowed the other two members. DJ Akademiks caught up with TMZ and revealed the breakup rumors have no legs.

“They might be going through a small disagreement or whatever,” Ak said. “I think that they’re angling it because, you know, Takeoff and Quavo just put out a song, so they’re kind of letting it lie, letting the questions linger or something like that.”

Akademiks added, “But at the end of the day, they’re family. Offset confirmed that to me, too. Maybe if it was the City Girls that unfollowed each other, but the Migos? Come on, I just can’t see a gangster group — like, the only sign of trouble is them hitting unfollow.”
