Lil Wayne Amazed To Hear Famous Lyrics He Forgot He'd Written

Rapper Lil Wayne had an incredible reaction to hearing his own lyrics because he couldn't actually remember that he wrote them in the first place.


To be fair, Weezy has been releasing music since he was just a kid back in the mid-90s, and he's been pretty prolific in that time.

However, the Grammy winner was confronted by one of his most famous lyrics - from a remix of 'Lollipop' - and had no idea that he'd even written it.


He was being interviewed in the studio by Fox Sports presenter Darnell Smith when Smith revealed his favourite lyrics from that particular song is the line: "Safe sex is great sex/Better wear a latex/'Cause you don't want that late text /That 'I think I'm late' text."

It's a decent piece of advice to follow, but also a nice rhyme scheme too. Couple that with Lil Wane's signature drawl and you've got a hit on your hands.

However, he wasn't sure that it even was one of his lines.


Wayne responded: "I said that?!"

He then added: "I didn't know I said it or why I said it, but I said it,"

Well, it doesn't matter now, it's been said.

The clip has quickly gone viral, with many of Weezy's fans chiming in to express their respect and love for the artist.


On YouTube, one person commented: "This dude Wayne was mind blown by his own lyrics that's how you know you are great.

"Best Rapper Ever."

Another said: "Wayne spit so many verses over a span of 20+ years it's not surprising he'd forget some of his lyrics. He's been in the game literally since 97."

Another simply wrote: "Legend."

To be fair to Lil Wayne - real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. - he's released 13 studio albums, one collaborative album, five EPs, and no less than 20 mixtapes over his career of more than two decades.

The guy is still only 38. That kind of work rate means you're likely to forget a couple of lines here and there.
