New Orleans native Lil Wayne is back with another Podcast interview and this time he’s giving Atlanta rapper Rich The Kid and West coast rapper YG their skateboarding flowers.
Lil Wayne Gives GOAT Hip Hop Skater Title To A New Generation
To promote an appearance on the “Players Day Off” podcast Lil Wayne shared a preview of their conversation on his Instagram. In that preview the host mentioned his G.O.A.T. status as Hip Hop’s best Skateboarder but Lil Wayne did not agree with receiving that title. Instead Weezy brought up two people from the new generation of rappers that he believes deserve the title more than him.
Lil Wayne remarked that Rich The Kid and YG have skills yet do not show off their skating abilities frequently. In the interview he jokingly said that he was exposing them adding that YG is the “hardest around” making it surprising that he skateboards so well. In response to the video Rich The Kid reposted it on to his own page and said he was honored by Weezy’s comments.
“No, I am trying to tell you man… they got people who don’t be wanting to show they skills for real until they get around me. Man, I’m gone expose you. First of all, Rich The Kid — man, the man skate with three watches on. Man that’s just that though.”
“Man YG man, I’m serious man. Man the hardest n***a in the world. I’m just sitting there like, ‘Man this man bloated out,’.”
Lil Wayne Tried To Financially Help Ex-Cop Who Saved His Life
Lil Wayne is always one to pay it forward. New reports reveal just how far he went to try to bless up the person who saved his life.
Ex-cop Robert Hoobler, who Tunechi credits with saving his life after his childhood suicide attempt, says he finally met the rap star again back in 2019. Wayne reportedly tried to help him out financially, and there has been talk about “Uncle Bob” joining his team in an administrative role.
Lil Wayne’s never forgotten “Uncle Bob” — the former New Orleans police officer who saved his life when he attempted suicide at age 12 — and he’s told him he’s got his back for life if he ever needs anything. “Uncle Bob,” whose real name is Robert Hoobler, tells TMZ … he saw Lil Wayne in 2019 when the rapper was in NOLA for a radio show, and that’s when Wayne offered to provide Bob with financial support if he ever needed it, telling Bob all he has to do is say the word.

Notorious B.I.G. Actually Helped Lil Wayne Stay Alive
The late Notorious B.I.G. actually played a vital role in Lil Wayne reconsidering taking his own life in the 90’s – the event in which “Uncle Bob” entered his life and ultimately saved it. The hip-hop star has stepped up to dish on contemplating suicide and Biggie Smalls being connected to his life-changing decision.
In a new “Uncomfortable Conversations” series with entertainment personality Emmanuel Acho, Weezy F. Baby doesn’t hold back on discussing mental health and his past attempted suicide moment. Wayne admits at the age of 12, he had his mom’s gun to his chest to take his life moments before B.I.G.’s “One More Chance” music video came on the TV.
“And Biggie was already gone or something. So I was looking, I was like, ‘You know what?’ Start thinking I had to get myself mad and noticed that I didn’t have to. that’s what scared me. How I knew I had a mental health problem was when I pulled the trigger.”
Despite still pulling the trigger, Wayne said he went through shock but didn’t feel any pain. A call he made to the police ahead of his attempt had law enforcement to come the rescue and ultimately get him rushed to a hospital.
