Lil Wayne Says His Mom Told Him To Drop Out Of High School

by

Lil Wayne¬†did a sit down interview with Katie Couric and revealed that his mom told him to drop out of school when he was 14 so he could focus on his music career. He said: “Not at all. I mean, kids please finish high school, and all my kids, you are finishing high school, but it was my mom’s idea (for him to drop out). “I had an album out. I was platinum already, thank God, and I was still trying to go to regular public school and she stopped me getting ready for school one day. She was walking past the room, I’ll never forget she was on the phone with somebody talking loud and she walked past my room and she saw me putting my bag on my back and she said, ‘you going to bring that to school with you?’ and I remember I asked her, ‘you don’t want me to bring it?’ and she thought about it and said, ‘I do.’ “Two minutes later she walked back into the room and she was still on the phone and said, ‘you don’t go to school no more, you’re getting a GED.’ I said okay.” He added: “So I got a GED and went to college.”
