Paris interviewed Lil Wayne for an Interview Magazine cover story where the two—now label mates—discuss clubbing, rhyming, the possibility of collaborating (aka predicting the future), and doing stints in jail.
Here's a standout exchange from the interview:
Paris Hilton: One thing I've noticed is that a lot of rappers, if you say to them, "Why are your lyrics about money, sex, and violence?" they'll say, "Well, we're telling it like it is. We're being realistic." But if you want to do something different and fresh, how do you do that?
Lil Wayne: You have to be an overall different type of person. Music is a reflection of who you are, and if those things that you mentioned are what your music is all about, then I guess that's who you are. I mean, I think it's just that simple. You have to be someone who is able to speak about different things. I speak about what I speak about, and I guess that's because I'm a crazy-ass nigga. [Hilton laughs] Kanye [West] speaks about a lot of different things, but that's because of who he is. You have Jay-Z, and he speaks about more corporate things, and I'm quite sure he's a pretty corporate guy. But I guess it's all who you are.
