[With Lil Wayne announcing his Lil Weezyana Fest in honor of the 10-year-anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Louisiana native and Weezy affiliate Kidd Kidd talks to SOHH correspondent Nikita Rathod about New Orleans a decade later.]
New Orleans has always been worse. I’m not even going to lie to you.
New Orleans has always been New Orleans. Crime rate, murder rate, it’s always been the same. I always tell people this too, a lot of people looked at Katrina as far as like it’s so sad, sad for it happening but for me, being from New Orleans, born and raised in New Orleans and knowing how it is out there, I feel like it was a blessing too because it gave a lot of people chances to get out of New Orleans.
You got people that didn’t have nothing when they was in New Orleans and then they went to these other states and got a job – had to get a job, got their own crib, stuff like that.
They made a whole new life for they self. Katrina was like a gift and a curse.
