Lil Wayne's "Cannon" Was Meant For Trick Daddy

Wayne will forever be a GOAT, regardless of his political affiliation. Weezy’s contributions to the game are second-to-none. He brought us Drake and Nicki Minaj but even before cementing the Young Money empire, the groundwork he put in is what we all fell in love with in the first place. His mixtape run, specifically, holds a special place in the hearts of rap fans who witnessed his reign in a pre-social media era.

Weezy can outrap the best of ’em, and there’s no better example of this than the damage he did on “Cannon.” The rapper’s Dedication 2 cut has remained one of the many showcasing of Weezy’s lyrical depth but the beat wasn’t actually made for him. During a recent interview with Bootleg Kev, Don Cannon revealed that the beat was actually meant for Miami legend Trick Daddy who was apparently not interested because he had Madonna on his line.
