Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has stepped forward to address a brief physical altercation he had with a cameraman during the weekend’s DirecTV celebrity Beach Bowl in New Orleans.
According to Weezy F. Baby, an unnamed cameraman became too physical with him and forced out some dicey comments.
“[I’m pissed] because one of these camera dudes just pushed me just now,” Wayne said moments after the altercation. “And I don’t like to be touched by people I don’t tell to touch me so I’m gonna get out of the building because if I touch somebody, I go to jail because they not the color of me, they’re not the same color I am so you know how that go. But to them? F*ck you!” (E! News)

Outside of the altercation, Wayne talked about his new I Am Not A Human Being II cover art while in New Orleans this past weekend.
“(Kanye) said, you know, man, let me do your cover. I saw the cover and I approved it. He had an explanation behind it – he said, he chose the moth butterfly thing because it has so many different stages of life, and it goes through so many forms and changes, and no one can figure it out, and it’s always beautiful. At a time it’s ugly and at a time it’s beautiful too. And that’s me.” (NOLA)
