Listen to Lil Wayne on iHeartRadio

Lil Wayne is helping to kick off the second season of Katie Couric's talk show "Katie."  On today's season premiere -- which airs on ABC affiliates -- "Weezy" sits down with Katie to discuss a number of tough topics, including his decision to drop out of high school. 

Lil Wayne reveals that it was actually his mother who encouraged him to drop out after seeing him carrying a gun to school.  Among the other subjects the two touch on is the time Wayne has spent in prison.  

Lil Wayne recently released the fifth installation of his Dedication mixtape series.
