Lil' Wayne INTERVIEWS Randy Moss + Naomie Harris & "Skyfall" Have BIGGEST OPENING WEEKEND In "Bond" Series History
Rapper Lil' Wayne interviewed NLF superstar Randy Moss recently where the two fellas discussed Randy coming out of retirement and being "outspoken" in the industry. Watch the interview inside and find out how well Naomie Harris' Skyfall flick did at the box office.
Lil' Wayne, who was grounded by his doctors a while back, shows no signs of slowing down as he got his side hustle on and appeared on ESPN's "NFL Countdown" yesterday. The hard core sports fan partook in his side hustle with ESPN and chatted up San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss.
Randy, who is know for being pretty outspoken, talked to Weezy about the luxury of being able to speak his mind public and how it sometimes gets him into trouble (just like Wayne).
Randy revealed that he went into retirement to get closer to his family but his love of football left him feeling empty. He says he cried like a baby in his garage one day and his oldest daughter comforted him and encouraged him to return to the game. Aww.
