After Lil Wayne and Drake’s reunion on Saturday following Weezy’s release , reports have cropped up suggesting there’s drama within the Young Money camp. However, on Friday (November 12), Drizzy shot down Web rumors that he got into an altercation with Wayne after the final stop of the Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour in Las Vegas.
“You got the story wrong…Lil Wayne punched me in my arm cause he saw a VW beetle pass by,” Drake tweeted, joking about the boredom-fighting road-trip game Punch Buggy and referencing Internet stories that Weezy socked his protégé in the face because he felt the Canadian MC abandoned him while he was serving his eight-month prison bid. “Haaa…YM Forever,” Drake wrote, shrugging off the controversy.
Drake’s rep also denied that any punches were thrown, onstage or off.
“There were no disruptions,” his rep said in a statement to MTV News. “The concert and afterparty went off without a hitch.”
MTV News also spoke to Drake directly after the Vegas show, following Wayne’s surprise cameo during their Thank Me Later collabo, “Miss Me.” The MC described his elation at seeing Weezy publicly for the first time since his release days earlier and revealed that he wasn’t expecting a friendly onstage bum-rush from the newly freed spitter.
“I talked to him on the phone, and he was like, ’I’ll see you in Miami. I got my party. I hope you make it.’ So I hit [Cortez Bryant], who manages me and Wayne, and I said, ’You’re not coming to the last show?’ And he was like, ’No, man, can’t make it.’ That’s how I hit the stage: ’I got no surprises for these people. They all think Wayne is coming and he’s not coming.’
“After the hook of ’Miss Me,’ ” Drake said, “I heard … Wayne’s verse. I didn’t quite know what was going on. I looked back, and there’s the man. I jumped higher than I’ve ever jumped in my entire life.”
All seems to be going well in Young Money land after Wayne’s first weekend back home, as the superstar MC was snapped alongside Drake, Mack Maine, Birdman, Bow Wow and Chris Brown at a Miami Heat game Thursday night.
