In an interview with XXL Mag, LIL WAYNE:SPACE ODDITY 2001, the up-and-coming American rap star claims that he doesn’t read books because of his innate intelligence:
What are you reading right now to help youÖ
I donít read a damn thing. Thatís why I donít write music. Iím too cool to be reading and writingÖIím a very intelligent nigga. I can read like a motherfucka. I donít want motherfuckas to think Iím illiterate.
Youíre in college soÖ
I donít read, other than that shit.
But we talking about books for leisure.
Nah, Iíve done that like once or twice. Itís just not my thing. Iím not into made-up stories.
You know how people get together and they like, ďYo, you readÖ ?Ē
Iím not even in that conversation circle. That would be crazy, I canít answer nothing so why would I sit there and talk? I ainít read no books. I sit and watch ESPN all day. I can tell you what happened in sports. I do what floats my boat. If you trying to figure out where I get this talk, thatís me. Iím born with that. I donít have no brothers, no sisters. My brother is 6-years-old. My dad ainít never had one of those. And the one I called pops, he passed. My momma, she do her cooking thing. Iím an intelligent nigga,. I just refuse to be dumb.
It looks like Little Wayne has about as much social responsibility as brains. Unlike the other celebrity heroes who promote positive, intellectual lifestyles, the only thing Lil’ Wayne is good for is convincing America’s children a life of drugs, violence, misogyny, and illiteracy is the best way to live.
