We all know that Lil Wayne loves sports, so it shouldn’t come as any surprise that he has something to say about the NCAA Tournament.
According to DREW REPORTS:
He takes his career so seriously that he records and tours nonstop and even has an “I Am Music” tattoo … on his face.So when we had a chance to catch up with him at mtvU Spring Break in Panama City Beach, Florida, a quick question about ESPN’s Championship Week and the upcoming NCAA Tournament turned him from multiplatinum rapper to studio analyst in an instant.”First of all, let me get in my mode,” he said as he pulled his glasses down from his head onto his face. “Hold on, ’cause this is what I do.”For those who don’t know, Weezy has been getting his “talking head” on lately with ESPN, and he also has a sports blog on ESPN the Magazine’s Web site.
Here’s Wayne’s take on a topsy-turvy week of college basketball:
“Shout-out to all the tournaments, because you got to pay attention [to all the teams],” he said. “Everybody who came out [as winners in] the tournaments was sleepers. You got teams like Radford, you got teams like Virginia Commonwealth came out there — shout-out to Larry Sanders. But the only conference that held up is the Big East Conference [Editor’s note: The Syracuse and UConn six-overtime thriller was on at the time of the interview] and conferences like the ACC and the SEC — shout-out LSU. You got to watch those teams like that in the Big Dance. Those teams aren’t there for nothing. You got to watch Virginia Commonwealth. You got to watch those teams.
“I really wanted DePaul to get somewhere,” Wayne continued. “That’s my perfect example: They got a 10-20-something record this year. But in that conference [Big East] they went to the semifinal. [Editor’s note: They were bounced in the second round after a huge upset win over Cincinnati.] They didn’t get the automatic bid. But if a team like that makes it, they’re playing with a different motivation.”
