Lil Wayne admits that he finds it hard to remember the lyrics to some of his most famous songs due to memory loss.
During an interview with Rolling Stone, the Young Money head honcho, who is behind some of the biggest Hip-Hop albums in the last few decades, says it’s difficult to recall every word.
“I don’t know ‘Tha Carter III,’ ‘Tha Carter II,’ ‘Tha Carter One’ from ‘Tha Carter IV,’” Weezy told Rolling Stone.
“And that’s just my God’s honest truth. You could lie, you could ask me [about] such and such song, I wouldn’t even know what we talking about.”
The 40-year-old musician says he barely remembers “Tha Carter III,” once of his most iconic releases.
“That’s how much I don’t know,” Weezy explained. “I work every day, bro — every single day. And also, I always look at it as the curse part of the gift and the curse.”
He added, “I believe that [God] blessed me with this amazing mind, but would not give [me] an amazing memory to remember this amazing shit.”
The rapper’s health has declined in recent years due to his battle with epilepsy and recurrent seizures. Weezy has previously disclosed that he has suffered seizures since early childhood.
However, Lil Wayne also noted that, despite being unable to remember some of his most famous hits, he doesn’t plan to retire any time soon.
