These days, Lil Wayne is having difficulty remembering the lyrics of his own songs! During a new interview with Rolling Stone, the New Orleans-born rapper admitted that he doesn’t recall some of his famous hit songs.
The iconic rapper spilled the beans on his memory loss struggles while having a conversation with Rolling Stone on Friday. Read on to know what Lil Wayne had to say about his memory loss.
Lil Wayne confesses he can’t remember his own songs due to memory loss
Yeah, you read that right. On Friday, Lil Wayne disclosed in his latest interview with Rolling Stone that he doesn’t remember a few of his own songs which were part of his famous albums.
The Lollipop hitmaker told the media outlet, “I don’t know ‘Tha Carter III,’ ‘Tha Carter II,’ ‘Tha Carter One’ from ‘Tha Carter IV.’ And that’s just my God’s honest truth. You could lie, you could ask me [about] such and such song, I wouldn’t even know what we talking about.”
Lil Wayne whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., further mentioned that his projects hold “no significance” to him “at all” since he doesn’t remember them. He explained that his memory loss is so bad that he doesn’t even recall when his albums came out.
The 40-year-old musician continued, “That’s how much I don’t know.” He shed some light on why his mind doesn’t recollect important facts. He said, “I work every day, bro — every single day. And also, I always look at it as the curse part of the gift and the curse.”
The A Milli rapper stated that the trade-off of having a bad memory is that he is lucky to have an amazing mind that can create such successful singles in the first place. He told Rolling Stone, “I believe that [God] blessed me with this amazing mind, but would not give [me] an amazing memory to remember this amazing s–t.”
In the last couple of years, Wayne has dealt with a couple of health issues including his long-time battle with epilepsy. In the past, he has been hospitalized several times due to seizures. In 2017, he had to cancel a show in Las Vegas after suffering multiple seizures.
Lil Wayne has no plans to slow down anytime soon
Despite his recent memory loss struggles, Lil Wayne doesn’t plan to slow down. He recently shared with the media outlet that he wants to motivate the rappers of the new generation through his journey.
The Masked Singer alum went on to say, “The motivation isn’t to show them that I’m still that dude, which I am. The motivation is to show them why I’m still that dude. That’s the motivation, because I want [rappers of the new generation] to hopefully get something from that and they continue to still be whoever the dude or woman they are.”
