Lil Wayne Smoked ’15 Blunts’ Before Recording Machine Gun Kelly ‘Drug Dealer’ Collab Machine Gun Kelly released his new Hulu documentary Life in Pink on Monday (June 27). It chronicles the rapper’s life during the time of his 2020 and 2022 albums. In the documentary, MGK recalls Lil Wayne smoking 15 blunts before recording his “Drug Dealer” verse. “I pressed play on the song, he’s like, ‘Is that what we’re doing?’” he said. “‘Yeah.’ He’s like, ‘Alright. You guys got time?’ ‘Yeah, for sure.’ He goes in the courtyard, and 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 added, “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.” What is something you can get right the very first time?
