Lil Wayne spent the morning in Bristol, Connecticut on the ESPN campus. The Drake vs Lil Wayne tour was in Hartford last night, so he was in the area and reportedly had not gone to sleep when going on SportsCenter this morning.
They did a lot of various things on SportsCenter, like challenging anchors to basketball shooting arcade games. Most notable though, Lil Wayne revealed the album cover for Tha Carter V and announced the release date.
Towards the end of his time on SportsCenter, they got Lil Wayne to freestyle to the SportsCenter theme music. Wayne seemed nervous about doing it, saying he is a horrible freestyler but a great rapper. It is an interesting comment from Wayne considering so much of the mythology around his music is built upon the belief that he doesn’t write lyrics down, that he just spitballs in the studio whatever comes to mind.
Still, he did it although he seemed nervous.
What did you think of the freestyle? Let us know in the comments below.
