Miami rap legend Uncle Luke has a message for some of hip-hops non MIA natives residing in his hometown. The 2 Live Crew founder says that hes sick to his stomach of watching artists live the high life on South Beach but not showing up for the city when it comes to more important social issues in the communities.
“I’ve got a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money Brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami,” Luke told the Miami New Times. “I’m tired of seeing these cats using up our beaches, soaking up our sunshine, taking over the nightclubs, and sleeping with our women without investing anything into the community.”
In his rant, Luke specifically called out New Orleans native Lil Wayne, who along with Cash Money executives Birdman, and Mack Maine who currently reside in Miami. The collective made the move to MIA following the tragic Hurricane Katrina that rocked their city.
“I want to know when Lil Wayne is going to do more than show up courtside at the American Airlines Arena” Luke continued. “H-ll, it’s not like he paid for them anyway. You know he got comped. This free loading and mooching of my city has got to stop. There used to be a day when out of town rappers were scared to throw their weight around Miami. It didn’t matter if they were coming from New York or Los Angeles, they knew better than to act like they owned this mother f–ker.”
Luke’s war of words is sure to spark a bit of controversy with his fellow Miami residents but the “Banned In The U.S.A.” icon is showing no signs of backing down from his threats. Luke has given all parties a deadline to get their act together.
“I’m giving them a deadline” Luke warned. “They got until January 1. If I don’t see them giving back to the Magic City, I’m gonna have their Miami cards revoked. They won’t be getting into any more nightclubs. They won’t be able to go near our women. And Lil Wayne is gonna have to find floor seats for New Orleans Hornets home games because he won’t be allowed inside the Triple A.”
