Lil Wayne is not to be played with. The larger than life MC sent a brief, yet subtle response back to Uncle Luke following a warning the 2 Live Crew founder placed on the Miami spitter and other rap stars gallivanting in his town.
“This n—a Luke trippin!!!” Wayne tweeted on Tuesday evening. “I ain’t feelin Khaled rite now either.”
Last week Luke spoke out on rappers he felt was living it up on South Beach but not paying their respects to the sunshine state 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 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.”
