Ahead of the release of his thirteenth studio album, Funeral, which dropped earlier today, Lil Wayne appeared on Drink Champs to discuss the new project.

The interview, which ran for over two hours, covered a lot of ground. Alongside the new album, the discussion ranged from his relationship with Jay-Z, a general unawareness of 21 Savage, to why he would decapitate his Young Money protege, Drake.

At one point in the interview, host N.O.R.E asked, “Even though Drake is your artist right now... he sends you a record, you're still taking his head off?” Without missing a beat, Weezy replied, “Yeah.”

He continued, “All day. I'm letting him know when he send it like, make sure your mom and them don't be listening to this.” This caused some fans to speculate that Drake might feature on his now-released Funeral album, but like Tha Carter V before it, the Canadian artist was nowhere to be seen.

Later in the interview N.O.R.E shared a series of texts in which Jay-Z admitted that his initial reaction to Wayne's contribution on the track “Show Me What You Got" wasn't what he'd expected. "I to take a long walk and look at myself in the mirror," before giving himself a pep talk. "I said ‘are you sure you still got this?’”

It turns out Jay-Z hadn't shared this story with Lil Wayne directly. “He just let me know, ‘Boy, you’re coming for me."

The interview also included some other amazing moments, such as Weezy admitting that he thought 21 Savage was a rap group.

And he didn't seem to know what TDE was either.
