Lil Wayne was high on ”15 blunts” while recording ”Drug Dealer”
Machine Gun Kelly dropped his Hulu documentary Life In Pink on Monday (June 27). The film narrates MGK’s life in the past two years, within the period 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall and 2022’s Mainstream Sellout albums were released.
At some point in the doc, MGK recalls Lil Wayne downing ‘’15 blunts’’ before recording ‘’Drug Dealer’’ collab.
“I pressed play on the song, he’s like, ‘Is that what we’re doing?,’” he recounted. “‘Yeah.’ He’s like, ‘Alright. You guys got time?’ ‘Yeah, for sure.’ He goes in the courtyard, smokes fifteen blunts. He just takes each, his eyes are closed just playing the track over and over again. He comes back in the studio and we can see him in the courtyard. We’re just kinda sitting there amazed, like that’s the G.O.A.T. forming his thoughts around a track that we made.”
He continued, “He comes back in at 5:30 in the morning. He’s like, ‘Y’all ready?’ He goes in the booth and he lays his shit like, one time. It’s just like, one time.”
The record appeared on MGK’s sixth studio album, Mainstream Sellout, released in March this year.
