Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Lil Wayne appeared on The Tonight Show and discussed his unique approach to recording new music -- he doesn't write down any song lyrics.
"It's always a different trigger meaning sometimes it might be somebody else's song or maybe a feature, they already had that subject so I just stick to the subject. If it's mine, if the music is what it is. I go off the music," Wayne continued about his recording process.
"If I had a subject already on my mind, something that was bothering me or some verse that been rhyming too long and I didn't see a mic yet, there it is," he said.
Wayne joked about how The Tonight Show staff wrote down lyrics for one of his songs so that he could study it before performing. Fallon showed a photo of Wayne reading lyrics from a paper onstage during rehearsals.
Wayne also told Fallon that he skateboards to clear his mind.
