Lil Wayne's musical education
Lil Wayne's mum made him leave school to focus on music. The rapper - who was just 17 when he shot to fame with his first solo album 'Tha Block Is Hot'- said his mother told him he had to turn his back on the education system and focus on his music career because she knew he was going to do well. He said: "I was still in school after I dropped my first solo album. I was still in school. It was platinum and I was still in school. "My mum, she made me quit. She said, 'Look, I'm going to let you quit school, but them b****s better get you a tutor!'' Despite his mother's insistence, Wayne continued to go to his old school anyway, despite regular confrontations with his teachers.. He told MTV: "They used to make me get off the campus and all kinds of wild s**t!" He recalled saying to teachers: "'C'mon man, I'm my own millionaire! You gonna really kick me off a public school campus? I just was going to this school last week, making straight A's.' Once his debut album was released, the rapper said he knew he'd made it when he bought a brand-new Mercedes-Benz and was given a BMQ two-seater as a gift from his label.Posted on 22 Dec 2009 07:30 to category : Music News
