Lil Wayne smoked '15 Blunts' before Machine Gun Kelly collab

Machine Gun Kelly has been known for doing all kinds of stuff, including his recent venture into documentary. He released his documentary Life In Pink to Hulu, which includes a very special testimonial from Lil Wayne about what they did before recording their collaboration.

Allegedly, Lil Wayne smoked “15 blunts” before recording. Of the experience, Machine Gun Kelly said, “I pressed play on the song, he’s like, ‘Is that what we’re doing? Yeah.’ He’s like, ‘Alright. You guys got time?’ ‘Yeah, for sure.’ He goes in the courtyard, smokes fifteen blunts. He just takes each, his eyes are closed just playing the track over and over again. He comes back in the studio and we can see him in the courtyard. We’re just kinda sitting there amazed, like that’s the G.O.A.T. forming his thoughts around a track that we made.”

He continued, “He comes back in at 5:30 in the morning. He’s like, ‘Y’all ready?’ He goes in the booth and he lays his shit like, one time. It’s just like, one time.”

Whether or not someone actually could smoke a full 15 blunts still remains to be seen, but there’s absolutely a bit of charming hyperbole there. And of course, it’s a quality Lil Wayne happens to be known for.

He also has a unique recording process. When interviewed for a 2009 documentary on Lil Wayne for MTV, Drake said of the rapper., “Wayne does this thing that’s scary and it’s unfair and I’m jealous of it for a million years. I’ll be playing a record and he’ll just sit there … it’ll take 40 minutes — sometimes 15 — and he’ll hop up and head right for the booth and lay, like, one or two or three of the most amazing verses that you’ve ever heard. It’s like, ‘What just happened? Did you just make a movie in your head?'”

Lil Wayne seems like someone that people across the board have a good time working with, for a number of reasons. From Machine Gun Kelly to Drake, the stories of going in the studio with Lil Wayne tend to be great across the board.
