(Gibson) Hip hop star Lil Wayne has revealed that he was a Nirvana fan when he was a teen.

NME.com reports that rock music fired the young rapper's rebellious spirit. He told MTV: "'Smells Like Teen Spirit' was the only rock song that [would] come on and you'd be like, 'That one is OK, I can deal with that one.'

"I was young and I actually listened to the lyrics. I probably felt at that time I was rebelling and I can associate myself with that. [I could] relate to the things he [vocalist Kurt Cobain] was talking about in the songs. I probably couldn't, but I thought I could." more on this story
