Say who?

Lil Wayne is a pioneer in the rap game. He’s paved the way for tons of the new wave artists. Many of them publicly credit him as a musical inspiration. Young Thug showed his support for Wayne when the legend announced he was retiring. Beyond his music, Wayne is a style-maker: One of the first to bring dreads to hip-hop.

Now, rappers like Lil Yachty and Uzi Vert are joining the wild hair trend. And while those rappers have a similar look to Wayne, he doesn’t know it. In a recent interview, Wayne was asked about four new wave rappers including Yachty and Uzi Vert and his answers shocked fans.

You know who they are, but Wayne doesn’t really care.

He swears to God he's never heard their names.
