The Neighborhood Talk shared a clip of Young Money Radio where Weezy revealed that he believed "Wheezy" was about him. "That's my favorite tag. I don't know why that's my favorite tag, but that's my favorite tag," Lil Wayne said. "Probably my favorite new producer, too, so send me some beats, Wheezy Outta Here." Then he playfully hesitates about telling his funny story. "I ain't even gonna tell you... First of all, I thought when I first heard that—like I told y'all, I don't know nothin' 'bout nothin', so when I first heard those beats, those songs with 'Wheezy Outta Here,' I just thought that was Future shouting me out every time."
Lil Wayne couldn't help but see the humor at his own expense and interrupted his thought by laughing at his mistake. "Call me vain, I don't know what you gon' call me," he added while chuckling. "I was like man—I had to ask Mack [Maine]. You know I gotta ask Mack everything. I had to ask Mack, 'Why that n*gga Future keep shouting me out on people's songs and they ain't even talking about me on the song!" Watch Weezy make his hilarious admission below.
