After dropping a few key words for the Miami Heat (and, um, one of their wives) during NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston, Lil Wayne dialed into a Miami’s 99 Jamz radio station Wednesday night (February 20) to address his beef with the team, also explaining that he wasn’t technically kicked out of that Heat vs. Lakers game a few days earlier. He did exchange a few heated words with Dwyane Wade though, which contributed to his sound off on Sunday night.
In audio via Miss Info, Wayne was only apologetic to his boy LeBron James, who he said got caught up in the crossfire (“only thing I do want to take back from saying that night is I said ‘F— LeBron”) and the residents of Miami in general, calling the city his “second home” then noting that this was only a sports beef. Other than that, everyone else was fair game. “I don’t apologize for that night. That’s who I am and yes I did say those things.”
The New Orleans rapper explained that he usually gets the cold shoulder from Heat players, but during last week’s game against the Lakers things went a bit far. ’I was at the game, rooting for the Lakers, saying ’Chris Bosh you can’t hit a shot, D-Wade stop crying, I’m saying whatever I wanna say, I’m a fan of who I’m a fan of,” he explained. “Then Dwyane Wade comes over and he looks at me. I said ’y’all don’t F— with me, so I don’t F— with ya’ll. Yall don’t F— with me’. [Wade] looked me dead in my eye and his exact words were, “We don’t.” He didn’t say “I don’t,’ he said ’We don’t.’ So I said ’okay, well F— you’ then. He said ’well F— you.’
And there you have it folks. “From that point on I’m turnt up,” Weezy added. “From that point on it’s F— everything about the Heat.”
After his confrontation with Wade, Wayne was tipped off that security was coming to escort him out. They were upset about him making obscene gestures at a fan, who he says he was joking around with, so he took the opportunity to see himself out. As far as his comments about being banned by the NBA, Weezy says he was prohibited from participating in the Slam Dunk contest, performing with Alicia Key at halftime and from attending the games–all for the well-being of the players. And that explanation came well after the festivities had concluded.
Oh, and was his comment about Chris Bosh’s wife true? “That ain’t important.” Read the full story at MTV News.
