At Cipha Sounds’ Take It Personal, Vinny spoke about how Lil Wayne professed his love for Jersey Shore in one of his first interviews after serving eight months in jail for gun possession back in 2010. In the interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 back in March of 2011, Wayne attributed Vinny’s support for him while in jail as a catalyst for his love for the show:
On the real, I just started watching Jersey Shore. You can ask them, I’m mad I missed out. And then the other day Vinny had on a “Free Weezy” shirt, I rocks with Jersey Shore, man.
Not all of Young Money are as inviting of the reality TV star as Lil Wayne. According to Vinny, his first time meeting Lil Wayne included a bit of shade from Nicki Minaj, an occurrence that Cipha Sounds says he has shared with the female MC.
