Jimmy told TMZ, “We did 32 bottles because it was my man’s bday, and where he’s from you pop a bottle for every year of your birth, and that’s exactly what we did for him.”
Lil Wayne makes a bold statement to VIBE magazine stating, he knew there wouldn’t be any repercussions from the line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.”
WAYNE ON JAY-Z AND “THE OLD GUYS”
“There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That shit died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.”
VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?
LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.
VIBE: So you knew the repercussions of going after Jay before anything even happened?
LIL WAYNE: Well, I’m a man. I believe as a man you should know that. Every man should know the repercussions and consequences behind whatever they do before they do it. And of course, I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did.
Tyrese just got banned from the airwaves in Delaware.
You won’t be hearing any Tyrese songs on the radio in Delaware in the near future … because the singer’s music has been banned from the biggest hip hop station in the state.
TMZ spoke with Tony Quartarone — the station owner at KISS 101.7 — who tells us he’s not upset with Tyrese because he took a stand against liquor stores … instead, he claims the problem was the way the singer addressed his listeners.
Quartarone says, “Tyrese was not kicked off the air for pointing out that liquor stores should not be located near schools … I totally agree with that. But … he proceeded to downgrade my audience by calling them ‘homies.'”
Quartarone says he felt the language was condescending — and that’s why he asked Tyrese to leave the building Monday morning. After Tyrese tweeted about the incident, Quartarone says he decided to ban Ty’s music until he gets an apology.
He probably won’t get one — Tyrese called in to “TMZ Live” yesterday and told us he simply didn’t care if the station takes his music out of rotation.
