Lil Wayne is very much in a world of his own. Over the years, the self-proclaimed martian has proven that he exists in a tiny bubble where only he and ESPN exist. Perhaps, that’s a testament to his creativity and the focus he puts into his craft. The rapper’s known to clock in over numerous songs in the studio per day, which means that there’s more music we haven’t heard from Wayne than we have. This week, he unveiled his new single, “Kant Nobody” ft. DMX and Swizz Beatz which he said is among the “billion bangers” they have in the vault.

Following the song’s release, Lil Wayne made a rare appearance on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music radio show where he discussed his latest song, as well as the upcoming Tha Carter VI. “It’s Carter 6. I never even imagined. That didn’t even sound right years ago. I can’t believe we’re at Carter 6. My fans know I give my all. Go listen to my last feature and know it’s gonna be a thousand times better than that,” he told Zane Lowe. Additionally, Weezy provided some interesting insight into his daily routine, including his diet.

Lil Wayne Doesn’t Know What McDonald's Smells Like

When you’re rich and famous, the idea becomes less appealing when you have a personal chef to cater to your cravings. Lil Wayne revealed to Zane Lowe that, for over 20 years, he’s had a personal chef working for him. “When I was 19 I moved to Miami and my mom is a chef and she was very happy for the move because New Orleans is crazy. One thing she really wanted me to do was get a personal chef,” he explained. 

Wayne’s mother didn’t want him to eat anything that was available, especially since he was frequently on the move. The 40-year-old MC admitted that he doesn’t eat fast food but he’s also not a gym rat, either. “So from the age of 19 to now, I’ve always had a personal chef. I haven’t eaten any fast food forever. I don’t know what McDonalds smell like,” he said. “Only Gyms I know is Jim Jones. I can’t lift a weight. I don’t do no workout.” Check out the interview above and sound off on your thoughts on “Kant Nobody.”
