I go to Atlanta to attend BloodRawâ€™s DJ/Media Appreciation party, and come back to all kinds of shit hitting the fanâ€¦ (but much love goes to CTE â€“ had a flippin ball)
DRAMA IN PARADISE â€“ DJ Drama speaks on Lilâ€™ Wayne in an interview with HipHopDX.com hereâ€™s what he saidâ€¦
HipHopDX: Speaking of Wayne, shortly after the raid, there was an interview with MTV News where he said that you and other mixtape DJs had to â€œsmarten up,â€ â€œplay the game fair,â€ and to look at DJ Clue and Khaled as examples. A lot of people looked at those comments as disrespectful; have you spoken to him since then?
DJ Drama: Yeah, it was fucked up. To be honest, heâ€™s never really spoken to me about that, weâ€™ve spoken about some other things. Thatâ€™s a tough one, in a lot of ways. Iâ€™m going to say first and foremost, I respect Lil Wayne, and when it comes to that microphone and what he does in that booth, the boyâ€™s a problem. Heâ€™s on top of his game, I will never take that from him. But when the raid happened, and he made those comments to MTV, it was a stab in my back. One, because, I just felt like if anything, that was a time I needed all the support that I could get. Thereâ€™s no denying the impact that the mixtapes that I did had on where heâ€™s at today. Everyone knows how big Dedication and Dedication 2 are, so I was real offended by that, I didnâ€™t think it was a good move on his part. But on another note, Wayne had definitely come through for me on my album, so I canâ€™t just write a nigga off like that, Iâ€™m not that type of dude. I had issues with that, as did a lot of people, because a lot of people knew the impact I had on his career, thereâ€™s no denying that. Lil Wayne was definitely here before me, but niggas will tell you that they ride more to Dedication 2 than the Carters. Especially in a situation whereâ€¦loyaltyâ€™s a lot, man. And when Wayne had those problems with Gillie, I made a decision on my own based on the work that me and Wayne had did when the nigga was tearing his ass. And for someone to turn around when I was at my low point, and say, â€œYou need to do it right like Khaled and Clue?â€ OK, thatâ€™s whatâ€™s up, dog.HipHopDX: What has it been like for you to see him blow up the way he has?
DJ Drama: Oh I love it. Thatâ€™s the type of nigga I am; I do me. My team is my niggas, thatâ€™s who I talk to day to day. At the end of the day, Iâ€™m a fan of this music. So I can separate my friendships from what this music shit is. Lil Wayne is one of the hottest niggas out, and I would never take that from him. Thatâ€™s what I was so excited to work with him in the first place. Heâ€™s got a banger on my album thatâ€™s fucking crazy. I donâ€™t have bitter or ill feelings toward the man; heâ€™s good at what he does, the same way Iâ€™m good at what I do. Iâ€™m a positive person, and Iâ€™m sure we can get past this, because just as the world would, Iâ€™d love to see a Dedication 3.
â€¦. Umâ€¦ sounds kinda fucked up to me considering Drama did help the brother outâ€¦ (amongst the likes of other rappers)

Busta Rhymes assault trial delayed again. Sorry 50 fans, a lot of DJs are declaring Kanyeâ€™s album as being the HOTTEST album of all time so maybe now 50 can sit down some place and stop wasting folks time promoting that mediocre ass album (or so I heard).
