2022 is already looking good for BLUE. He just got a $50,000 investment with lil wayne only a few days after the start of production.
As spotted on HipHopDX, the Mobile, Alabama native finishes the year in championship form. The artist formerly known as Yung Bleu was already touting a collaboration with Lil Wayne, but he’s taking his working relationship with him to another level. On Monday, December 27, he announced on Instagram that he had landed an official production credit on an upcoming Weezy project. “TO ALL THE N-GGAS WHO SPOKEN SH*** TTT!” he wrote in the caption. “LIL WAYNE PLACEMENT!!!! I want 50. I should have it when it was cheap yesterday not today’s price what you say @fatjoe @moonboyhitz. he wrote.
He then took to Twitter and revealed that he had just started experimenting with a beating machine a week before. “Man Lil Wayne the Goat I just jumped on my F***ING beat it’s overrr! Yesterday’s price is not today’s price I’ve been making beats for a week. ! Kodak now WAYNE PRODUCED BY: Moon Boy”.
Collaboration has been a goal for Bleu Vandross since he was young. In an interview with New hot hip-hop, he detailed how much of an inspiration Wayne was to him. “Lil Wayne is definitely one of my favorite rappers,” he revealed. “I feel like he used to go so hard with punchlines. Everyone just wanted to say and do punchlines and see how creative they could be with punchlines. So that was kind of the wave I was on back then. Like, I was a lot more lyrical than I am now.
