Lil’ Wayne paid a visit to Jim Rome on Showtime on Wednesday night. In a segment released online, Lil’ Wayne recalls serving time in prison, future NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre reaching out to him while incarcerated, and what Favre’s actions meant to him. Weezy and Rome continue their discussion on which athletes can actually rap, and the current defensive rule changes in the NFL.

In related news, it was announced on Thursday morning that Lil’ Wayne will be performing at GQ’s Super Bowl party on February 2 in his hometown of New Orleans. Sponsored by Lacost and Mercedes-Benz, the invite-only event takes place at the historical Elm’s Mansion in New Orleans’s Garden District. Wayne expressed his excitement about performing at the event two weeks before his I Am Not A Human Being II album is set to drop on February 19.

“As a lifelong sports fan and a proud New Orleans native, I’m excited to partner with GQ, a publication that has long supported me, for this year’s party.”
