Lil Wayne Records Motivational Music For Phelps
Olympic swimming hero MICHAEL PHELPS was stunned after meeting his favourite rapper LIL' WAYNE - because the star had recorded a personal song for him.
After winning eight gold medals at the Beijing Games this summer (08), the athlete told the press he had listened to the hip-hop star's track I'm Me to pump him up before the races.
And Phelps was overwhelmed when he met the rapper for the first time at the MTV Video Music Awards in September (08).
Phelps recalls, "Lil' Wayne presented me with this iPod which contained 40 unreleased songs he had recorded - and one was called Michael Phelps.
"In that song he just keeps rapping 'Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps, swimming through the water ...' I like all the songs he gave me but obviously that means the most."
