Lil Wayne almost couldn’t get through a Saudi airport and the Crown Prince was upset about it
Lil Wayne once received a Frank Mueller watch worth over $25K plus a black Lamborghini from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia after facing difficulties at a private airport in the Middle East kingdom. In a clip from an old Drink Champs interview shared by Daily Loud, Wayne recounts a moment he was almost stopped upon landing for having “too much” jewelry.
“We landed at a private airport,” Wayne said. “I set my backpack with all my jewelry on there. The lady said I’m sorry, the jewelry is too much. I think she was saying if it’s over $25K you gotta declare it. I’m very no-nonsense, I’m like man f*ck all that. So I went back to my plane.”
He continued, “All of a sudden I’m sitting in my plane, n*gga walked in the plane like ‘Yo,’ quote and quote, His excellence, he’s pissed, he said you walk straight through to no nothing,’ he was highly upset.
“‘I bring you gift over $25K,’ he made his homie open the gift, it was a Frank Mueller watch. So I know yeah, that’s over $25K,” Tunechi added while everyone busted into laughter. “‘Oh I forget, Lamborghini or Ferrari,’ I thought it was a general question. I said ‘oh, Lamborghini,’ I thought he was asking me which is better.”
Weezy later realized that the Crown Prince was about to buy him a new Lamborghini. “‘What color?’ ‘I said, ‘you talking about buying me one? Black. ‘In front of your house in three weeks, I’m very sorry for this…’”
