Lil Wayne nabs the cover for Vibe's October/November issue
Weezy channeled Jimi Hendrix by dressing up as the legendary guitarist for the shoot.
Although the Young Money rapper took shots at Jay-Z on his latest album, Tha Carter IV, Wayne insists he has no real issues with anyone.
"There's no competition [with any artists]. Music isn't about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy. ... Everybody just happy to do music these days," Weezy told Vibe via MTV News. "There are no problems. That sh*t died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun — feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys."
Wayne also insists he doesn't feel pressured by, and isn't jealous of Drake's success.
"I don't look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn't my artist, then yeah maybe," Wayne said. "But that's my artist. He's not [just] a friend. We're more than friends. It's business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I'm the guy's boss."
