Grammy nominee Lil Wayne went bowling with news anchor Katie Couric while sharing bowling advice to one another.
Couric's "All Access Grammy Special" airs Wednesday on CBS. Fans may be surprised at what Lil Wayne has to say.
The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, discussed with Couric the real reason why he dropped the D in his first name. "I dropped the 'D' 'cause I'm a junior," he said, referring to the fact that he is named after his dad. "He's not in my life, and he's never been in my life, so I don't want to be Dwayne."
According to MTV News, during Lil Wayne's interview he explains his song dedicated to Hurricane Katrina.
"I believe that music is another form of news. Music is another form of journalism to me. So I have to cover all the areas. You get Lil Wayne's take on the new president, money, the economy, women, whatever."
Couric asked the MC if he had any questions regarding how George W. Bush handled Hurricane Katrina. He replied, "I'm gangsta, and gangstas don't ask questions."
At the end of the interview he summed it up by saying, "I'm a rapper. And I am a gangsta. And I do what I want."
