I know right? Of all people, Lil Wayne.
There has been a lot of flak lately with the rapper, that his songs are crap, his lyrics are crap and basically he’s just a bad influence on young kids from all over the world.
I like to think differently. The media likes to blow things out of proportion. If you put in a little effort, you can easily find a treasure trove of uncensored inspiration.
Here are 10 quotes from Lil Wayne himself.
Let it inspire you.
