Lil Wayne Responds to Uncle Luke’s Rant
Another day, another rap feud. This time it looks like Lil Wayne has a bone to pick with rap legend Luther Campbell (aka Uncle Luke), who criticized him and other "out-of-town" rappers of not financially investing into Miami.
In a Miami New Times column, Uncle Luke wrote that he was frustrated with artists such as Weezy, DJ Khaled and Diddy who "[soak] up our sunshine, [take] over the nightclubs, and [sleep] with our women without investing anything into the community."
He writes: "I want to see Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all their boys start doing more for Miami. I want to see them doing fundraisers to help youth sports and after school programs. I want to see them at FCAT rallies. I want to see them do like Pitbull who works closely with the Kiwanis Club in Little Havana and DJ Irie who puts on a charity weekend for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Uncle Luke gave the aforementioned rappers until Jan. 1 to invest into the city or else he was going to revoke their "Miami cards" -- no more nightclubs, strippers or freebies for them. Granted, Uncle Luke is, undoubtedly, the biggest rap icon from Miami, but does he really have enough juice to kick rappers out of Miami? We'll have to see in 2012.
On Tuesday, Tunechi jumped on Twitter and responded with this tweet: "This N---a Luke trippin!!! I ain't feelin khaled rite now neither." So does Lil Wayne have beef with DJ Khaled, as well? Hopefully, Weezy, Khaled, Diddy and others can sit down with Uncle Luke and work something out.
What do you think? Should "out-of-town" rappers start investing in Miami since they party there all the time? Or is Uncle Luke out of his mind? Respond in the comments below.
