Lil Wayne has been worried about Ja Morant for a minute.
This is what Weezy said last month about Ja, who’s facing a long NBA suspension for flashing a firearm on social for the second time.
“Do y’all know that boy? ‘Cause I don’t,” said Tunechi. “I know him from dunking and jumping, and I only started knowing him when I started paying attention to him in his last year of college. He come from like a town with 3,000 people. Like, what? What y’all expect? Y’all gave him $200 million.”
He continued. “I just said, a town with 3,000 people. You expect him to be responsible? Now we tripping. That’s magic. ‘Cause I could tell you now, I come from a real well-raised, beautiful mother, nice, you know what I mean? My mama would bust her ass to make sure everything around me was nice, and I still was a knucklehead. I shot myself … And that young man, I could imagine if I came from a f*cking place with 3,000 people and I became who I am.”
Apparently, Wayne asked his bestie, Skip Bayless, to get him in touch with Ja so he could impart some wisdom.
I tried, unsuccessfully, to connect Lil Wayne with Ja Morant. I know Wayne would fly to Memphis in a heartbeat.pic.twitter.com/4H4Z4V0I8t

But Ja’s team never got back.
Is Wayne’s mentorship what Morant needs?
