Turk reflects on the current Lil Wayne, and admits the two Hot Boyz grew apart.
Former Hot Boy Turk spent almost nine years in jail, which definitely put a halt on his rap career. During that time, his former group mate, Lil Wayne, became as big as ever, reaching mainstream status. Now that Turk is out of prison he's been releasing a steady flow of music, and in a recent interview, spoke on the distance between him and Wayne.
While talking to G41 Radio Turk spoke on the differences he sees in Weezy F.Â "Yeah, Wayne...that's like my little brother, but we grew apart," Turk revealed. "I got my own movement. I was just locked up. If I had been out, it would've been the same result. ...I think my thing gonna go farther. I got people that can relate to me, and I can relate to. I'm not Michael Jackson, I ain't weird, quote-unquote. Some of these dudes out here, you can't even touch 'em, you can't even talk to 'em."Â
The former Hot Boy also spoke on Weezy's alleged addictions, and related it to his own trouble with cocaine and heroin.Â Â "I used to be in a circle where I was caught up in some drugs. I used to do heroin, cocaine. I used to shoot heroin and cocaine like an old nigga, when I was fifteen, sixteen, because no one tell me nothin'. So the only thing I can say about that situation is when you're under the influence... anything can come out your mouth. Don't necessarily mean that's the type of person you is."
Turk concluded that Wayne is not the WayneÂ he once knew.Â "Wayne's like a little brother to me," Turk said. "That's not Wayne. When I see certain pictures of Wayne, I know that's not Wayne," he concluded. "I'd rather not even talk about the Wayne that's happened today. I don't know that Wayne. I can't speak on that Wayne."Â
