Lil’ Wayne In The UK
MTV News EXCLUSIVE | We tracked down the highly rated rapper when he flew over from the US
When Lil Wayne he said: Right now were in Wat How do you say it? Watford?
He may not have known exactly where in Europe he was, but the fact was that the hottest rapper in the game -as crowned by MTV US- was sat talking to us backstage at Area nightclub, Watford.
Lil' Wayne had just stepped down from the DJ booth where he had retreated to after the crowd rushed the makeshift stage - and was on good form.
It seems he wasnt sure of his status this side of the Atlantic: The crowd knew the words to my songs, my girlfriends phone numbers, everything!.
He continued Thats a big surprise to know that they actually understand what Im talking about, because you have to know what Im talking about to say it!
It was indeed a night of surprises.
Forget the fact that Weezy actually made it to Watford, played for over an hour and was in a fully coherent and talkative mood, the real surprise came when we asked him if there were any UK artists he was feeling.
You would have expected BET Award winners Kano or Dizzee Rascal right? Wrong.
I used to like Craig David, what happened to him? I rock with him, hes cool. But you know since Ive been over here Ive been seeing a lot of things I like."
"I like a girl called Nia Jai (Manchester based singer on Rio Ferdinands Chalk Music label) who has this song Throw Your Ms Up. I need the name of everyone in that video and I want them all on my album!"
And he didnt stop there adding: "And I like some other girls called Booty Luv " they got the goods " then you got the Sugababes I like them too.
