LAS VEGAS, NV - SEPTEMBER 21: Lil Wayne performs onstage during the 2012 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena

Lil' Wayne recently took a break from the final round of editing for Al Sharpton's new book to sit in a puffy white chair and chat intimately with Katie Couric.

Weezy will be starring in "the BIG conversation" for the season premiere of "Katie" next week.

This is not the first tryst the two have had: Wayne got all candid with the mild-mannered blonde back in 2009 for CBS' "All Access Grammy Special."

From that convo we got this Lil' Wayneism:

"I am gangster, Miss Katie."

"I don't take nothin' from no one. I do what I wanna do. And I'm gonna do that until the day I die. And if I can't do that, then I'll just die."

But, at least from the preview clips posted on Couric's site, it seems like the "Lollipop" rapper might have grown up a bit since then.

Well, kind of. He still most definitely defers to his mom on all things.

When asked about his syrup habit, Wayne said, "I'm an excessive person" and went on to explain that his doctor suggested he tell his mother to tell him to stop—since she was the only person who could really tell him anything.

She did, and he stopped.

Interestingly, it was also his mother who told him to stop another thing: high school.

Weezy said that, while he wouldn't recommend it to other kids, his mom decided he should just get his GED when she noticed him packing a gun (which she bought for him) into his backpack.

Our personal fav from the preview was when Katie tried to get all cutesy with him on the subject of prison popularity for a famous rapper and Wayne just looked at her and deadpanned:

"Uh, it's jail."

Looks like Lil' Wayne doesn't suffer fools gladly. Yep, we're tuning in.
