It seems Lil Tunechi has been an eccentric git far longer than we imagined.
Earning his first paycheck from applying his lyrical talent, Lil Wayne tried giving the money to his mother. When she refused it, the 14 year old went to Nissan and got himself a cool Pathfinder.
Which is funny, because as a 14 year old he could not legally drive; I don’t even think he had learned to drive at that point!
Weezy made the revelation on ESPNU’s show ‘Power Hour’…
“I was 14 years old, and my first check that I got was for $6500,” he said on ‘Power Hour.’
“Fourteen years old, a $6500 check, waving it at your mom, you think you doing something; she ain’t bringing no $6500 check every week. That was the moment I knew I could do a little something.
“I actually gave it to her, but she didn’t want a dime of it, and she gave it back. She said, ‘Well, I don’t want it. Whatever you wanna do with it, let’s go.’
“So I went straight to Nissan and bought a Pathfinder,” he added with a laugh.
