Rapper turned rocker Lil Wayne is featured on the cover of the latest issue of RollingStone Magazine, on stands now. In the issue, Wayne says the reason he’s coming out with a rock album is because he got tired of rapping. He says he’s basically grown in this “rock star” and he just had to play the part with this new album. Read below for a few snippets from the issue, courtesy of MTV News.
“Honestly? I don’t want to be the best rapper in the world,” Wayne told Rolling Stone in an upcoming cover story arriving on newsstands Friday. “If I have a rap album I’m dropping, then I want it to be the best rap album. But I want to be the best. Period. Now. My favorite rapper hasn’t done what I’m doing.”
