The Lil Wayne witchhunt is happening. They’re building a pire in Times Square and when the proud Gothamites catch him, he’s gonna have to face a citizens’ jury just like that scene in Dark Knight Rises.
How dare you not love New York?!? Haven’t you read our plastic bags? Don’t you know that New York birthed Hip Hop? Have you tasted our tap water? Do you follow El Bloombito?
(Is it ok to remove some rotten tomatoes from the composting station in Park Slope?…because I need something to throw at Weezy when the angry mob catches him.)
Ok seriously…I know folks are mad because Lil Wayne told MTV that he “flat out, doesn’t like New York.” But he has had some trying experiences here (i.e., that Rikers Island jail bid), and he imagines that folks don’t like him here (even though his appearances are always jampacked), and he thinks something might have happened atSummerJam (but he can’t quite recall what). Now Weezy is totally entitled to that opinion, but obviously it’s not NYC’s fault that he got caught with a burner in 2009.
But how serious can I be when we have a New York State Senator (Malcolm Smith) holding a press conferences in Times Square, demanding that Lil Wayne apologize because:
“He should also know anecdotally or not, he’s insulted the memory of Frank Sinatra. And he’s also insulted Jay-Z. Both have made endearing songs about New York.“
This is going way left…and I love it.
Watch a clip of the “Lil Wayne Must Apologize to New York” press conference…
New York State Senator Malcolm Smith has a message for Lil Wayne…and Queens native, Nicki Minaj too. (thank you so much, Bucky Turco and the AnimalNewYork team for capturing this gem)
