Lil Wayne recently teamed up with Chicago rapper Calboy for their single “Miseducation”.

Calboy reveals how the collaboration happened in a conversation with HipHopDX, “What’s crazy about the Wayne situation is he reached out to me on Instagram,” said Calboy. “That’s when I felt like, ‘Man, I’m lit. Wayne reached out to me.’ He was like, ‘Yo, you fire, shorty. What’s the situation like?’ But I didn’t see his DM for like four, five months, bro. It’s just sitting in my DMs, and I didn’t see it and it’s a DM from Wayne [laughs].”

He continued “We was just talking about all type of stuff,” Calboy added. “He was going through the legal situations before he got pardoned by Trump, so I’m like, ‘Man, I’m sending my prayers to you, bro. Blessings. Keep your head up.’ He’s like, ‘Oh, I definitely need them, bro.’ He just wanted to see what type of person I was, and we just locked in from there.”

“What I got from that was to outwork everybody. I talked to Wayne about it at the video shoot, and that’s what he told me. He’s like, ‘Bro, just outwork everybody. Everybody doing what they do, but nobody works harder than me. That’s how I stayed relevant for so long because nobody works harder than me. We’re in the studio for days. We don’t go home, no shower, no nothing. We in there rapping. And there’s so much on a man brain you could rap all day”, said Calboy
