Lil Wayne Covers GQ Magazine With Fellow Rockers-November 2011

Growing up in Hollgrove(New Orleans),LA, Lil Wayne has much to be thankful for but in the November 2011 Issue he covers GQ magazine with Gods of Rock, Eminem &  Keith Richards.  Although he has the hard core exterior and it can be found it many of his lyrics, Lil Wayne gets personal and opens up about his estranged father, his new profound hobby, Skateboarding and retirement.

On his relationship with his father
He don’t give a sh*t  about me. And I don’t give a shit about him. I saw the n*gga recently—I had a  show in New Orleans. And I ain’t afraid to put this out there, ’cause this is  just how much I don’t give a f*ck about a n*gga, and I want people to see how  you’re not supposed to be. I was parked at the hotel, and I saw him walking  outside the hotel. Just walking back and forth. I’m like, “Look at this n*gga!  You gotta be looking for me.” If Lil Wayne got a show in New Orleans, the whole  of New Orleans knows. Basically, you’re not there for nothing else but me. So I  call my man on the bus. I’m like, “N*gga, that’s my daddy.” So I tell my man, “Go see what’s up.” So my man goes to holla at him. He tells my man, “Oh. I  didn’t know y’all was here. I’m here waiting for this little ho to get off work  from the hotel.” For real? That’s when I was like, “Typical Dwayne Carter.” So  that’s what’s up with me and my real father. I don’t want to look like his ass,  but I do.

On his new hobby of skateboarding
I don’t know. I’m still  like a kid, because unfortunately my childhood was raped away from me because I  became a star, a rapper, or whatever you want to call it, and you can’t be a kid  and a rapper at the same time. So I watch television and I get real amped. Like,  people watch commercials, and they’re like, “Who’s gonna buy that?” I’m the  person they make the commercials for. I watch them, and I’m like, “Oh God,  that’s awesome.” So I was just watching TV, and I was like, “Yeah. I want to do  that!” And I called a guy and I said, “I want a ramp on my roof.” I have a  pretty big roof at home. So I put a ramp on the roof about five months ago, and  man, I’ve been skating ever since.

On why he will retire at 35
Basically, I have been doing  this for eighteen years. That’s reason number one. I have accomplished all that  I have set out to accomplish and more. Also, I have a label, and I’ve only put  out two artists [Drake and Nicki Minaj]. I have a lot more work to do, and it’d  be selfish to not focus on being the boss and focus on their projects.

But the main reason is my kids, my children. Now, if I thought I’d be selfish  to my artists, imagine what I think I would be doing to my kids. I have enough  money that they don’t have to ever do anything—which, they will do everything, ’cause they ain’t getting sh*t. [cackles wildly] Six [more] years, I can do this  Lil Wayne thing, and my boys will be about 7 and 8 years old. And man, it’s all about them then. You know, whatever they’re doing.  Sports. Whatever they’re into. That’s where I am. I’m at every game. I’m the dad  with the hat on. The jersey. That’s me.

I feel like I’ll be a new me, and how good is that? To actually be opening a  brand-new door of life at 35? That’d be awesome. Totally awesome. I’m looking  forward to it.
