StreetRunner linked up with LilWayneHQ to discuss all things Lil Wayne and all things coming up for the South Florida based producer. StreetRunner discusses the Carter IV, his artist Adela, and more. Here’s what he says about the first time he met Wayneâ€¦
“The first time I met Weezy was when I was working on Fat Joe’s album Me, Myself and I. Macho and my dude Safe were chillin’ with me at the Hit Factory parking lot waiting for Joe, and Wayne came out and Macho introduced me. Lucky for me my dude Safe had one of my beat CDs in his car and I was able to pass it to him. Within a hour of passing him the beat CD my manager got a call that Wayne wanted two beats from the CD for Tha Carter 3. Later that night I went up to Weezy’s studio session with Joe and he played us the records he made on my two tracks and Joe went nuts. I was like damn I just passed you this CDâ€¦ I knew at that point we were going to make a lot of music in the future. The next day I went back to Hit Factory and hit him wit another ten beats. I haven’t stopped hitting him with heat since. I actually worked on one record with Junior Reid and Lil Wayne in the studio. Wayne just circled the room a few times while the beat was playin’ and then jumped in the booth and put his verses down. I also been in the studio several times with him to vibe on tracks or hear new music he’s made on my tracks. He’s real cool and down to earth dude.”
