Now it’s nooo secret that after Lil Wayne’s 2007 gun arrest witch latter lead to his incarceration in 2010 that he has not been a fan of the “Big Apple”. Well it seems like New York State Senator Malcolm Smith has reportedly lashed out at comments made by Lil Wayne and has demanded an apology.
N.Y. State Sen. Malcolm Smith is demanding an apology from Lil Wayne. “New York City is the birthplace of the Hip Hop music movement,” Smith said in a statement Wednesday. “Millions of New Yorkers listen to his music every day. His comments outraged his local fans and residents.” (Syracuse)
While in Las Vegas Monday night to introduce his new line of shoes with Supra this is what he had to say in an interview with MTV “Flat out: I don’t like New York, you’re not supposed to leave it at, ‘Everything happens for a reason,’ ” Wayne said of how the failed Summer Jam set turned into a blessing in disguise. “I believe everything happens for a reason and then you make the most of that reason. I think we made the most of it last week.” (MTV)
I feel the Senator is more affended by the remarks made by Wayne about the former New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin.
“Jeremy Lin has been added to Rising Stars Challenge game for All-Star Weekend after recent Lin craze,” Weezy said, reading from a report. “Now, everyone got the Lin fever and everybody doing the Lin — I don’t, I’m trying to figure out what I call him. Well, he beat my Lakers. So ever since that game, I hate him. So I call him Lin Laden. Yeah, that’s what I call him. Lin Laden. Trend that. That’s what y’all need to start calling him. Lin Laden. But for tonight, Lin Laden was defeated by the Hornets. So seems like Lin couldn’t beat New Or-Lins. Ha! Score for me.” (Weezy’s Sports Center)
In my opinion Wayne shouldn’t have to apologise for his remarks or his “personal” disstain for the state of N.Y. If that’s how he feels it’s his right to express it! The senator even tried to bring in Jay-Z and Frank Sinatra into the argument. Lol. I believe it’s just a public cry for votes…what do you think?
