Lil Wayne's catalog is filled with iconic bars ranging from "Okay, you're a goon, but what's a goon to a goblin?" to "Real G's move in silence like lasagna." At this point, he's dropped so many gems that a few are starting to slip his mind.

Fans of Lil Wayne know that he never writes down his lyrics in favor of rapping off the dome. This impulsive recording technique combined with a prolific career that stretches more than 20 years has resulted in Weezy forgetting some of his most unforgettable lines. 

In a leaked conversation between Fox Sports' Darnell Smith and Wayne, Smith recited some of the 38-year-old's rhymes back to him. While Wayne's witty punchlines and metaphors usually wow listeners, he impressed his own damn self after hearing a line from the Kanye West-assisted "Lollipop (Remix)."

This a classic: "Safe sex is great sex / Better wear a latex / ‘Cause you don’t want that late text / That ‘I think I’m late’ text," Smith said.

Hyped, Weezy responded, "Oh! I said that? I'm a dog! I don't know when I said that or why I said that, but I said it. … I don’t write, man."

But this isn't the first time Wayne's approach to rap has proven too proficient for his own memory. The hook of "Make It Rain," his Grammy-nominated 2006 hit with Fat Joe, uses a similar cadence as another collab he had previously released alongside Jim Jones, titled "Weatherman."

Yikes: Jones recently revealed on The Joe Budden Podcast that he "wanted to f**k Weezy up over that record." Wayne then had to explain how his nonstop lifestyle and drug use can cause him to *unintentionally* mesh ideas.

Though Jones was about ready to take things to the "next level," Juelz Santana stepped in and convinced him to let it slide. Shouts out to Juelz!
