Lawd, let’s hope Weezy ain’t back to sippin sizzurp again. The legendary New Orleans rap lord admitted in a recent interview with veteran Hip Hop journalist Elliott Wilson that he didn’t know who slain Florida rapper XXXTentacion was until he heard X on his (Wayne’s) own track.
When asked about his Kendrick collaboration “Mona Lisa,” he replied, “That song old, man.” He said that XXXTentacion’s inclusion on the album was Mack Maine’s idea, and he said that he “didn’t know who XXXTentacion was” until he heard the feature.
XXXTentacion was killed in June outside a motorcycle shop in what police have described as an armed robbery-murder. Several suspects face murder and robbery charges and are jailed in Broward county, Florida.
His murder became an international news story; his music subsequently rocketed to the top of the record charts. And a number of fans and celebrities offered countless tributes to the rapper on social media.
Weezy also said he didn’t even know Birdman had apologized to him on-stage until after he left the stage.
“I was on stage, I was in performance mode, I was trying to remember the words,” he said. “Somebody actually had to tell me, ‘Oh he apologized to you onstage tonight.’” He said they talked about it later and regularly text about sports.
Birdman and Weezy have buried the axe but the Cobb County District Attorney reportedly is considering charging Birdman and Young Thug with orchestrating the 2015 shooting-up of Lil Wayne’s tour bus outside Atlanta.
