Randy Moss Visits with Lil Wayne

Posted by Taylor Price on November 7, 2012 – 3:00 PM

It’s not often you get one of the world’s best entertainers and football players in the same room, but that’s what happened weeks back when multi-platinum recording artist Lil Wayne came to 49ers headquarters to shoot an interview with future Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss.

The interview, which features the hip hop artist asking the 49ers wideout about his remarkable playing career and many other topics, airs this Sunday morning at 7 a.m. PT on ESPN’s Sunday Countdown Show.

On Wednesday, Moss discussed his appreciation for Wayne’s involvement with ESPN and the opportunity to visit with one of the most famous musicians in the world today.

“I think a lot of people listen to Lil Wayne’s music over the years and for him to be able to take the music industry and mix it with professional sports, I thought it was something both sides wanted to see,” Moss said. “The music world wanted to see it; the sports world wanted to see it.”

Now, 49ers fans want to see it.

In the interview, the team’s Faithful fans will get to learn about Moss’ hard work behind the scenes and relationships with teammates.

It covers a number of topics according to Moss.

“I think it’s more of understanding me and how I work,” the 14year veteran wideout explained. “For us to do the interview and for him to ask the questions that he asked about my life, the 49ers, (Michael) Crabtree, there was a lot of things talked about.”

Moss’ 47-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals might serve as his greatest on-field memory with San Francisco so far. The interview with the respected entertainer might be considered as his top moment off of it.

“I considered it a blessing, a blessing in disguise because I try to stay humble,” Moss detailed. “I try to stay grounded and for Lil Wayne to come in an interview me, man, that’s something special.”

So special, Moss considered it to be a humbling feeling.

“I’ve said time and time again that we are human, they don’t think we’re human, but we are human,” Moss said. “It was a blessing for a famous rapper, an icon, to come in and interview me. I’m very humble and very blessed to be able to do that.”

Randy and Wayne.

*NOV. 9 UPDATE*

Thanks to ESPN for sending this statement from Lil Wayne about the experience interviewing Randy Moss:

“It was beyond an experience to interview The Great Randy Moss. I mean I literally felt unworthy but then I found out about how much he respects me and my music,and obviously I have tremendous respect for him as a player but even more as a man. Again, beyond an experience/interview…more like a mutual conversation between two very interesting people…one that ill never forget….thank u ESPN for the opportunity.”

    You for real? has Randy ever listened to what lil’ wayne says in his lyrics?

    If he did, I bet he would have declined that interview lol.

    I just feel like I need to shed some light man.

    A real rapper will encourage listeners with truth and hope. A rapper I would appreciate even more is one who leads others to Christ through music. thats real talk man.

    For example, go to Youtube and look up “Sevin – War in Here”…1)and check out this song 2) Look at how many views it has 3) Compare it to wayne’s views smh..

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

    I pray that this comment has blessed you.
