Not everyone was happy with Lil Wayne‘s tirade last week in which he dissed the NBA and the Miami Heat team. Rapper Pitbull, who is a proud Miami native, decided to give Weezy a piece of his mind on the hometown song, ‘Welcome 2 Dade County.’

While Pitbull doesn’t throw any real shots at Weezy, he does reiterate that he loves Miami to the fullest. “I’m self-made / I’m self-paid / I grew up with no daddy / I’m from Miami-Dade,” he spits over Baauer‘s No. 1 hit single, ‘Harlem Shake.’

However, Pitbull does issue a warning to the Young Money leader to watch his mouth when it comes to his beloved city. “You got money, yeah / Yeah, that’s sweet / But we all know Slim and Baby really eat / You talk Miami, if you talking Heat / Moral of the story, don’t s— where you eat,” he raps.

In Weezy’s defense, he did recant his previous remarks and insisted that he wasn’t disparaging the 305. “As far as the city of Miami, I do wanna apologize for the misunderstanding and whatever has everybody thinking that I have something against the city, because that’s totally wrong,” he told Miami radio station 99 Jamz. “These people accepted me with open arms since day one, since I was a Hot Boy. It’s just totally sports, this ain’t got nothing to do with the city of Miami.”

Nevertheless, it’s good to hear Pitbull show some hometown pride on Baauer’s chart-topping dance hit. Dalé!
