Details on the alleged incident circulated online yesterday (January 6).
Earlier today, a report broke out which centered around Lil Wayne, Mack Maine and several other members of the Young Money roster. According to the letter, a young woman - who is of a darker complexion - and her friends were in Miami finishing photoshoots when they went to visit the YM crew at a hotel. Upon seeing them Wayne allegedly said, "Damn, y'all pretty to be dark skin." The story goes from there that the woman mentioned Weezy's oldest child was dark skinned leading him to respond with, "My daughter is a dark skin millionaire. That's the difference between her and you." The two supposedly have a brief back and forth and she and her friends storms out the room. (Karen Civil)
