Lil Wayne Says Being Sober Is a ‘Great Feeling’

According to the terms of his probation, Lil Wayne has been ordered to refrain from drinking or using drugs for the next three years, a major adjustment for the New Orleans MC who previously relied heavily on weed and cough syrup as part of his writing process.

Though Wayne has noted that his straight edge lifestyle has made recording more difficult, he appears to have finally come to terms with his court-enforced sobriety, revealing that it’s a “great feeling” during a recent interview at the Providence, R.I. stop on his I Am Still Music tour.

“It’s a big difference. I almost jumped in the crowd,” the ’6 Foot 7 Foot’ rhymer told MTV. “I’m sober, I’m sweating. I’m tasting my sweat. My sweat taste different. My sweat used to taste like weed. But now it’s just, I’m like I don’t know what it is … I’m out there, my eyes big, my eyes all wide. I had threw my glasses, I don’t even need these. I could see everything right now. But yeah man, it’s a great feeling.”

Wayne’s not the only one noticing the positive change. Tour mate and fellow Young Money member Nicki Minaj recently remarked that her boss is a “joy to be around” now that he’s clean. “He’s nicer. He’s more calm,” Nicki said. “I guess when you’re not getting high you have to deal with reality and I think he likes his reality now … The couple (of) times I’ve seen him, it’s just a joy to be around. He’s easier to get along with and easier to talk to, I feel, now.”

Wayne and Nicki are currently midway through their sold out 24-city I Am Still Music Tour with Rick Ross and Travis Barker, whose next date is in Greensboro, N.C. on April 8.
