Earlier this week while talking to MTV in Las Vegas at the Magic Convention (he was unveiling his new shoe with Supra), Lil Wayne said that he “flat out” doesn’t like New York. He wasn’t all hyped up, he wasn’t saying it with extreme conviction and/or hatred…he just simply said he’s not a fan of the Big Apple. Myself being a NJ native…which by default pretty much makes me a New Yorker since I work there, hang there, date there, etc…didn’t think twice about it. Wayne’s personal opinion holds no bearing on my life. Birdman came out the next day to co-sign his “son’s” feelings, but he wasn’t really saying anything bad either. He just basically said whatever Wayne dislikes, I’ll dislike it too. That’s a loyalty thing, that’s not an F NYC thing.
Those that know me are going to think I’m riding the Young Money bandwagon as I have great relationships with many of the roster, but this has NOTHING to do with that. To be fair, however, I’m going to break down exactly WHY Wayne was wrong for what he said, but also, why you should cut him some slack. Thank you to Hot 97 programming director Ebro for help with the songs! In
