Lil Wayne recalled his early days of touring with DMX during a tribute to the late rapper at Trillerfest on Saturday (May 1) in Miami. In a video of the event, Weezy reminisced about the cross-country joint tour featuring members of X's Ruff Ryders crew (Eve, Swizz Beatz and Drag-On) and the Cash Money Millionaires (Wayne, Turk, Juvenile, Hot Boys, B.G.) that hit arenas in early 2000.
“You see, when I was a younger kid, we used to be on tour a lot, like six months out the year,” a shirtless Wayne told the the crowd. “And we used to go on tour with another record label because we used to have so many artists. We didn’t have to have no opening acts because we just needed another record label and it was just us and them. So back then, we went on this tour called the ‘Cash Money Ruff Ryders' tour. See, being from New Orleans, it’s so far away from New York and Cali and s--- like that we didn’t know if it was real when we seen it on TV, the New York guys, the L.A. people. So when we saw DMX, we all fell in love.”
