LIL WAYNE WEIGHS IN ON DABABY CONTROVERSY + REFLECTS ON TRUMP MEETING

Published

on

Lil Wayne sat down with the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday (August 11) for a wide-ranging interview ahead of his one-day Uproar Festival in Los Angeles on August 13.

During the interview, the Young Money rapper was asked about one of the most talked-about things in rap right now: DaBaby’s ostensibly homophobic remarks at Rolling Loud Miami on July 25, which led to him being dumped by a slew of festivals, endorsements, and even radio stations.

Wayne, who hasn’t exactly demonstrated that he’s up to date on current events, was unaware of the tale. Weezy provided his perspective on the topic after receiving the lowdown from Times staff writer August Brown.

Unlike Questlove, Azealia Banks, and others who have publicly chastised DaBaby for his comments, Lil Wayne has put it down to the nature of social media.

“You know how it does,” he added. “The amount of attention paid to artists and celebrities is insane. You don’t even have to be famous. Even ordinary individuals can feel like they’ve made a mistake because one of their 200 Twitter followers mentioned something. But that is the current strength of social media.”

Later in the interview, Lil Wayne discussed a contentious encounter he had with former President Donald Trump.

Last October, the two met shortly before the 2020 presidential election to discuss Trump’s proposed “Platinum Plan” for Black America. Following an altercation at a Miami airport in 2019, Wayne was pardoned by Trump in January, avoiding a possible 10-year jail sentence for federal weapons charges.

When asked how significant the encounter was, Lil Wayne replied, “Progress is always possible.” “Did you get a lot of pushback for taking that meeting?” Brown inquired, to which Wayne replied, “No, not at all.”

However, some of his peers may disagree with that final aspect. Royce Da 5’9, Lil Jon, and producer Bryan-Michael Cox were among those who expressed their displeasure with 50 Cent’s meeting with Trump.

“This ain’t the Iconic Genius who said, and I quote, ‘Bitch, real G’z move in silence like lasagna,’” Royce wrote on Instagram. “No, Satan, I rebuke you… Stay away from our GOAT’s [sic].. Wayne, on the other hand, would never have worn a shirt to the White House…”

Lil Wayne, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to pay attention to what’s going on online, as evidenced by his ignorance of the recent DaBaby controversy.

50 Cent and Jimmy Kimmel

Nicki Minaj and her cousin’s acquaintances are still being mocked. After reading the information about the COVID-19 vaccine causing testicular irritation, 50 Cent and Jimmy Kimmel cracked a few jokes while discussing the forthcoming BMF concert.

“I heard you got Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s testicles to be on this program, and I know this is meant to be a surprise, but I heard you got Nicki Minaj’s cousin’s friend’s testicles to be on this show. Is that accurate?” Kimmel inquired.

50, who is never afraid to tell a joke, jumped right in.

50 joked, “Listen, you didn’t look into the intricacies of the scenario.” “According to the details, he was set to marry. The testicles, I believe, are from the bachelor party. That was never said. Why hadn’t the bachelor party been considered? It was Pfizer if you had a great bachelor party and then your body started swelling.”

If you didn’t get the humor, Pfizer also makes Viagra.

The playful conversation between the two can be heard below.
