Dads Space caught up Lil Wayne, asking the rapper about the recent birth of his son, advice for new fathers, his amazing 2008, what he thinks about ‘X Factor’, his ‘Hurricane Season’ film role, and his thoughts about President Barack Obama. “I think it’s gonna be good, like, I think it’s gonna be, he’s a lot of Democratic president like JFK,” Weezy opined. “I think he’s gonna take care, I think he’s gonna make the economy better and actually he’s said he wants to do the health thing. I think he’s gonna make that better too, like Clinton wanted to. Like I said, I think he’s gonna succeed because he’s not FDR, he’s not JFK, he’s not Clinton, he’s Barack and you feel like you know him more than you know the others, I don’t know why, it’s just that feeling he gives you. It’s like his wife is your aunty.” Watch a teaser below and check out the entire interview at dads-space.com.

QD3.com caught up with Lil Wayne after his show in Los Angeles to screen the latest cut of his documentary, ‘The Carter’. The rapper was enjoying a massage while eating steak and french fries. Weezy talked about getting eight Grammy nominations, but suspected that he wouldn’t win any. “Because you know politics,” he explained. “I think they think it’s just enough to nominate me or something. They’ll probably give me one next year actually. Everyone’s like, ‘You gotta win one, that’s why they nominated you for so many so they could have a reason to give you one.’ I hope that’s the case but I keep telling people I don’t think they’ll give me any, I think it’s just a nomination. Not because of politics, only because there’s a lot of great people in the categories and honestly, I don’t think I did what they did.” Watch the Weezy blog below.
