Lil Wayne: “Flat Out, I Don’t Like New York,” Queens State Senator Demands Apology For The Remark

Posted on August 23, 2012

Wayne has had a rough run with New York City for quite some time now, first he was arrested in 2007 and ultimately jailed for gun possession after getting pulled over following a live show. His most recent misstep was earlier in the summer when he pulled Nicki Minaj from her scheduled performance at Hot 97's Summer Jam, which we all should remember created quite the controversy.

Now he simply just doesn't like us.

In a recent interview, when Wayne was posed with the question of what happened with Hot 97's Summer Jam performance, he didn't hesitate to express his dislike for the Rotten Apple.

“Lil Wayne has never been shy about expressing his disdain for New York, but that didn't stop Tunechi from rolling through the Roseland Ballroom to rock the stage with Nicki Minaj. ‘Flat out: I don't like New York', Weezy told MTV News on Monday night while in Las Vegas to introduce his new line of sneakers with Supra.”

“Wayne's distaste for the Big Apple performances is understandable, considering it was his 2007 gun arrest after a NYC show that led to his 2010 incarceration. ‘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.”

Weezy's comments were heard by Queens State Senator Malcolm Smith who demands an apology from Lil Wayne.

A press release from the Senator's office stated that “The rapper publicly said he flat out don't like New York. New York City is the birthplace of the Hip Hop music movement. Millions of New Yorkers listen to his music every day. His comments outraged his local fans and residents. The group today will be demanding an apology of the hip hop star.”

The press release also promised that Smith will be “joined by members of the hip hop youth council and tourism officials” to help address the issue as well.

Wayne is entitled to feel that way given his history, so should he apologize?
