Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has responded to Miami's Pitbull days after he dropped a diss record aimed at his head defending the South Beach area.
Although quick and to the point, Weezy F. Baby revealed his shocked reaction to seeing Pit get at him on wax.
"Dam pit bull bro I thought u was kool.," Wayne tweeted Wednesday (February 27). (Lil Wayne's Twitter)
Pit raised eyebrows when he released his "Harlem Shake" freestyle this week and put Wayne on blast.
It seems Lil Wayne's "F*ck the Miami Heat" rant didn't go over so well with one Miami resident. Namely, Pitbull. Mr. 305 has just released "Welcome to Dade County," a freestyle over Baauer's "Harlem Shake," wherein he addresses Weezy without ever mentioning his name, specifically. He raps: "You got money, yeah yeah, that's sweet/ But we all know Slim and Baby really eat/ You talk Miami if you talking Heat/ Moral of the story, don't sh*t where you eat." (The Boom Box)
Last week, Miami native Uncle Luke publicly went after Wayne in an open blog post.
"He has no respect for the city because people in Miami's entertainment industry -- from local radio DJs to South Beach nightclub promoters to the Heat's front office -- spread their legs for him and every out-of-town celebrity who rolls through town. Lil Wayne treats Miami like his b*tch because people let him. When Weezy claimed he was thrown out of the Heat home game versus the Lakers, the franchise tried to downplay the incident, saying they only asked him to leave and he left on his own. That was a b*tch move." (Miami New Times)
His words inspired fellow South Beach rapper Trick Daddy to speak up.
"I don't care who be offended by what I say. I rep my city and want nobody disrespecting. When their lease is up, they can leave. We've got to stick together as radio, as artists, as deejays and fans who love the music as a whole. And that's what makes a community. Me and Luke been talking, we've been getting together, we're going to find out some type of way to get this thing back on the road -- I can't go nowhere else, this is my home. So from now on, when they get here, they're going to have to start checking in. They're going to check in by turning to 99 Jamz and listening to us, what we've got to say. They're taking all of our beats and rapping over them anyway." (99 Jamz)
