No, Lil Wayne has not (to my knowledge) recorded a version of “SJI.” However, I was somewhat interested in a comment he made in the recent Rolling Stone cover profile. Admittedly, he seems to be pretty much stoned throughout, and might also be the sort of person who is on his own planet even if he sobered up for a few minutes. So this isn’t exactly poetry. But..
.. the context is that the writer has just explained how Lil Wayn,e, at around age 11, was introduced to Csh Money co-founder Bryan “Baby” Williams, and “rapped for Baby on command.” Impressed, Baby gave him a business card. The writer quotes Wayne:
How New Orleans is in my music is, we have this drive about us. We have this motivation. You see people on the corner, singing, and that takes a different type of pride to do that. It takes a different type of pride to go on the corner and ask for money for Girl Scout Cookies. When we used to play on the little baseball team, you had to wash cars at the red light. It takes that kind of pride.
That’s why me, being 11, looking a this man who’s intimdating the world, tells me to rap, and I rap. He didn’t ask me to tell him about who I am. I probably would have froze up. But music, rap music — I think that’s where New Orleans comes in. We’re relentless when it comes to music.
Again, there’s some stuff there I don’t quite get (notably the Girl Scout Cookies reference). But I think I understand the gist of what he’s saying, and I think it’s probably on point.
