Cash Money Records boss Birdman has stepped forward to speak out on recent reports which suggest there are tensions flaring between his Young Money protégé Lil Wayne and Miami’s Trick Daddy.
Baby said he recently met Trick one-on-one to make sure there were no real issues toward his industry son.
“To be honest with you, I saw Trick Monday in [Miami strip club King of Diamonds] and we had a talk and it was all love,” the #1 Stunna told “RapFix Live” host Sway Calloway on Wednesday’s show, which was shot on location in Miami. “We got a lot of friends out here. These are people that we met day one, from day one when we hit the town. A lot of Haitian friends, Ross, Khaled, E Class, Flo Rida, all these boys — even Trick. These people we been knowing since we hit the town, so when a lot of it erupts I wanted to holla. I saw him Monday and we talked. That’s dead meat.” (MTV)
Earlier this week, Trick said Wayne had him restricted from all Miami strip clubs following their recent altercation.
Trick Daddy tells TMZ he’s open to a proposed sit-down with Lil Wayne to settle their feud … but what he’s actually doing is throwing gasoline on the fire. In case you’re not up to speed … Lil Wayne went ballistic after a member of Trick’s posse allegedly flicked a cigarette in Wayne’s dreads at a Miami strip club. Mr. Daddy isn’t copping to the incendiary move. Now here’s where it gets bad. Rather than trying to make things nice, Daddy’s logic is … “If I [wanted to start s**t with Lil Wayne] he would have been in the hospital for a different reason than a seizure.” Trick is bitter … claiming Wayne’s gotten him blackballed from all the good strip clubs in Miami … and hey, now all that’s left are the butterface joints. Finally … enter Birdman … who has the good sense to try and defuse the situation between the 2 feuding rappers by scheduling a sit-down happy meal. (TMZ)
A representative from King of Diamonds spoke on the dicey confrontation last month.
Before Wayne could react … we’re told KOD security jumped in between the parties and cooled off the situation. Also, our sources say at no point were Trick Daddy and Wayne ever face-to-face — and Trick Daddy was not with his boys when things got heated outside. King of Diamonds tells TMZ, “It’s sad they had to revisit a situation that was Internet beef … while surrounded by naked girls.” TD’s been jawing at Wayne over Twitter ever since he went on a major anti-Miami rant back in February. We reached out to Weezy and Trick Daddy’s camps … nothing back yet. KOD says both rappers are welcome back anytime. (TMZ)
Rumors of the altercation popped up across multiple blogs days prior.
Lil Wayne reportedly engaged in a scuffle with fellow rapper Trick Daddy in Miami recently stemming from comments that the former made about the South Florida NBA team the Miami Heat. Wayne, the 30-year-old rapper, reportedly showed up to the Miami gentlemen’s club King of Diamonds where he was confronted by the 39-year-old Miami rapper Trick Daddy. The latter reportedly threw a cigarette in Lil Wayne’s face and a scuffle ensued, according to Vlad TV reports. Trick Daddy previously spoke about his issues with Lil Wayne and others who he felt disrespected his city. (Christian Post)
Back in February, Trick publicly spoke out against Wayne after the Young Money head called out his city’s Miami Heat.
“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)
