For anybody hating on Lil Wayne during his time in critical condition, Travis O’Guin has a message: “Shut up.”
Explaining his relationship with the mega-popular rap star, Strange Music’s CEO explains that it goes beyond merely professional:
I’ll tell you something. I dig [Lil] Wayne. So many people, even our own fans, are often times saying, “Wayne is mainstream bullshit. Fuck this.” We don’t feel that way. I want to make that clear. That dude is 100 with me when spent time in Rikers [Island], three hours talking to him. I learned a lot about that guy. When we went to Miami to record on Tha Carter IV, I learned a hell of a lot more, and when he came to Kansas City and spent the entire day at Strange Music [headquarters] and busted out the skateboard ramp, hung out, and had a barbeque; I am not just a Wayne fan. I consider myself a friend of the guy.
