Lil Wayne Unapologetic About Miami Heat Disses, But Loves City & Lebron James
Lil Wayne stirred up some controversy over the weekend, when he declared war on the NBA, Miami Heat, and its players after he claimed to have been banned from all league events -- although the league denies this.
If you missed it, the hip-hop superstar took to the mic at an All-Star Weekend event in Houston this past week, and sent a big "F*** you" to the NBA, Miami Heat, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade ... and even claimed to have slept with Chris Bosh's wife.
Well, since then, Weezy has explained himself, taking back his remarks against LeBron, but remaining unapologetic about other comments. In an interview with South Florida's 99 Jamz, he openly admits to dissing Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and doesn't apologize.
"I don't apologize for that night. I don't apologize for being who I am," said Weezy. "That's who I am, this is who I am. Yes, I did say those things.
"The only thing I do want to take back from saying that night... I said, 'F LeBron.' I didn't mean to say that because me and LeBron, we are cool and I'm really cool with his mom and we have a real good relationship and that's my homie, but it just slipped out. I didn't mean to say that."
When asked if what he said was true about sleeping with Chris Bosh's wife, he replied, "That ain't important. I was just having a conversation with Baby onstage when I said that or whatever I said. That was my fam in there. I wasn't on a television show or radio station. ... That was my party and my stage. I could say what I want."
His diss toward the Miami Heat wasn't taken lightly, especially by Miami natives and he understands that, so Weezy also clarified that as well, saying that while he may have beef with the Heat, he has nothing against the city of Miami and its citizens. "That's totally, totally wrong. These people accepted me with open arms from day one since I was a Hot Boy. This is just totally sports. This ain't got nothing to do with the city of Miami."
During the interview, Wayne claims to have spent $1.5 million a year on tickets to the Heat games and still gets no love from the team. Specifically, he said he was disrespected by Wade... and that's where the issues stem from. "The boy D-Wade comes over there and he looks at me and I said, 'Ya'll don't f with me, I don't f with ya'll.' He looked me dead in my eye. His exact words were, 'We don't.' I said, 'OK, f you then.' He said, 'Well f you,' " Wayne explained.
Later, he also offered an explanation about his claims of being banned from Miami Heat games, and NBA events altogether, admitting that it's not entirely true. "Maybe I was a little too upset and I walked out. Once the homie had told me he don't f with me, I was too heated," said the rapper.
