Lil Wayne, Rap Troll, Claims He Doesn't Know Who Donald Trump Is

Lil Wayne has been in his own Tunechi world for awhile now, but it's kind of hard to believe he's unaware of the current presidential candidates. When asked in a interview with the New York Times if he has any words for Republican hopeful Donald Trump, the rapper laughs before saying "Who’s that?"

Weezy likes to joke around a lot, so this response was most likely not a serious one. But the biggest LOL-worthy kicker comes when the interview asks if he's keeping up with rising rappers Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage and Kodak Black. Just like the shady dad he is, Wayne says: "I swear to God I didn’t know you were saying people’s names just now, so that should probably answer that question. I just do my own thing." 

Cue the GIF:

The rapper also speaks about his Gone ’Til November prison memoir ("I haven’t read it, and I don’t plan on reading it"), his bevy of guest features and working with Solange and Chance the Rapper. But that all falls to the wayside when Wayne drops gems like not knowing who Trump is.

Below, watch Reginae Carter (who probably knows today's rappers more than her father) reveal Lil Wayne's dorky dad side:
