    Wayne was the soundtrack to my life in 8th grade man. 07-09 was some special years. That grind i saw him have for the music. I told myself whatever career I get into if I don’t love it and do it 24/7 like Wayne treated music I won’t do it.Wayne inspired me most with his work ethic like non other. I just want to find my passion and work like that. He doesn’t have a retirement date because he loves it so much that’s the only thing I want for myself fuck the money

    Man Wayne is the ultimate musician. This man needs to be recognized way more than he does. He made it cool to do alot of things, from ppl tatting their face, to black gangsta rappers wearing tight/slim fit clothing when it was frowned upon etc… won’t even touch on the influence he has in hip hop, i’d be typing for days. G.o.a.t.

  9. SJsRedemption says:
