Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has stepped forward to clarify furious comments he made a few days ago at NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, Texas and asked for forgiveness from the Miami Heat’s LeBron James.
Along with King James, Weezy F. Baby issued an open apology to the entire city of Miami for calling out its local team.
“Yeah, I heard about that, that’s what I want to clear up,” Wayne said in an interview when told the entire city of Miami was upset with him. “First of all, I ain’t have a cup. I can’t drink anything. Actually, I had a little bit too much to ‘think’ that night. Yeah, [laughs], I had too many thoughts on my mind that night but let me start off saying I don’t apologzie for that night. I don’t apologize for being who I am. That’s who I am. This is who I am and yes I did say those things. The only thing I do want to take back from saying that night is I said, ‘F LeBron,’ I didn’t mean to say that because me and LeBron are cool and I know his mom and we have a real good relationship. That’s my homie, it just slipped out. Other than that, I don’t take nothing back and like I said, I don’t apologize for being me. This is who I am. Now do you want an explanation for where all that came from?” (99 Jamz)
Wayne also said he did not regret calling out the NBA, labeling himself the new Pac or making accusations of sleeping with one of the Miami Heat star’s wives.
“That ain’t important,” Wayne added when asked if he had sexual relations with Miami Heat player Chris Bosh‘s wife, Adrienne. “Actually I was just having a conversation with Baby when I said that or whatever I said. Like I said, those were my fans in there. I wasn’t on a television show, I wasn’t on a radio station, I wasn’t in front of nobody’s video camera. … That was my party and my stage, I can say what I want to sweetheart.” (99 Jamz)
This week, Miami hero Uncle Luke blasted Weezy for his comments and demanded an apology.
“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)
Last weekend, Weezy blasted the entire National Basketball Association and the Miami Heat over allegedly being banned from their events.
“Y’all love these n*ggas so I’m gonna let y’all know why [I don’t like the Heat]. The Miami Heat told [the arenas] to ban me. So I say f*ck, I’m still going to come out here and party — when I say ‘F*ck,’ y’all say ‘NBA’. F*ck! When I say ‘F*ck,’ y’all say the Miami Heat. F*ck! … I ain’t 2Pac, I’m the new Pac. Holla at cha boy.” (YouTube)
