Vinny Guadagnino Shares How He Nabbed Lil Wayne For 'The Show' [Video]


Vinny Guadagnino and Lil Wayne at the 2012 NBA All-Star Game.

Vinny Guadagnino held his own with rappers on "Hip Hop Squares," but how will rappers handle the Guadagnino's Staten Island clan? Well, we'll find out soon enough, because Lil Wayne is set to be the first guest on "The Show With Vinny," and the humble host is spilling all the details on how one of the most successful artists in the game ended up on his couch in this interview clip.

Vinny says he didn't have to twist Weezy's arm at all to come on the show, which is no surprise, given the former "Jersey Shore" star's street cred. "Back when we didn't really know what the show was even going to be, [Lil Wayne] was like, 'Hell yeah, I'll do it for you!'" But Vin was worried Weezy'd be eating his words after chatting with his unfiltered uncle. "My Uncle Nino was making, like, racist jokes, and I'm like, 'Yo stop, STOP!'" he shares. Luckily, Weezy laughed it off, but we can only imagine the things Nino had to say when glitter-girl Ke$ha came to visit...

Check out the video, and don't miss the premiere of "The Show With Vinny," Thursday, May 2 at 10/9c on MTV!
