Lil’ Wayne Calls Into DJ Drama’s Radio Show To Clear Up Mixtape DJ Comments, Says Only Has Problem With One DJ, The Empire

Lil’ Wayne phoned into DJ Drama’s Shade 45 radio show last night to clear up remarks that he made regarding mixtape DJs.

“First off, I didn’t mean to disrespect no DJs, no mixtape DJs, whatever kind of DJ you is, with no kind of disrespect,” he said. “Especially given the fact that me and Drama, me and Khaled, me and my homeboy Raj Smoove from New Orleans, we all get it in and do the mixtape thing. Given that fact right there, things are blown out of proportion.”I meant every single word I said, but I fuck with every DJ I fuck with,” he continued. But this Empire nigga, I don’t fuck with him. For all DJs, just letting y’all know, that whole shit was meant for that Empire nigga. I don’t fuck with [him]. This nigga puts out a CD on me every month. I couldn’t [even] tell you what he looks like.”

Wayne’s initial comments regarding DJs surfaced in an interview with Foundation magazine. In the audio clip posted online, a frustrated Weezy lashed out against mixtape DJs with some harsh words.

“Fuck you if you a mixtape DJ,” he said. “I’m doing Lil’ Wayne. I’m against [mixtapes], anti-mixtape dude. I don’t know no mixtape DJs.”

Although his statement was a blanket comment, Wayne told Drama his words were aimed specifically for The Empire, who has raised his DJ profile with a series of Lil’ Wayne mixtapes titled Da Drought Is Over. The series has become just as popular as Wayne’s collaborative mixtape efforts with Drama (Dedication) and DJ Khaled (Da Drought).

In response to his comments on mixtapes, however, a number of DJs have begun to leak Lil Wayne’s album Tha Carter III in protest. Legendary New York DJ Doo Wop created a six-minute montage video that mocks the Cash Money camp thanking DJs for their support.

Lil’ Wayne said he has no problem given out his music for free, but noted his displeasure with so many DJs making compilations form the New Orleans star’s work, even going as far as having advertisements sold against the projects.

“Even though it sounds hard, it’s the easiest way if you try to get a hold of me to get clearance,” Wayne explained when Drama’s guest David Banner asked the rapper for a resolution.—Jayson Rodriguez

  • http://www.xxlmag.com MikeL152123

    I knew this was comming. There is no way he was talking about “Every DJ” out there. Drama and Khaled have done too much for him. He’s just pissed about the DJ’s who are trying to use his music to make a name for themselves and he’s right. You cant go on a mixtape website without seeing at least 10 mixtapes with wayne’s name on it that some no name DJ threw together. Then everyone gets pissed off because its all old songs on some unofficial mixtape. I dont blame wayne at all for being pissed and venting a bit. Fuck those DJs trying to use his music to make a name for themselves. CARTER 3 June 10th go get it!!

  • trippin

    Yall niggaz gave that fool too many passes to begin with.

    #1 he kisses a man
    #2 He had a ghostwriter (Gillie Da Kid)
    #3 He says he was better that Jay-Z (clearly not)
    #4 He backs down from 50 Cent (50 would literally kick his ass)
    #5 He disses dJ Drama & didn’t come to his aid when Drama needed him
    #6 He says “Fuck You” to the very people who put him on top
    #7 He had a problem with 1 or 2 djs, but doesnt address them specifically like a man from the beginning.

    & most importantly…

    He put out all those mixtape songs himself so he has no one else to blame but himself.

    • Capital G.

      If that ain’t the fuckin’ truth…

      • Cinsere

        Could not have said it better myself. Plus #8 – He sucks, and ya’ll believe his ramblings about him being the best simply because he says so, and not based on any actual criteria.

        Ya’ll some brainwashed mu’fuckas.

    • Wood Life

      Still Coppin it! C3 June 10th

    • Bull

      1. What does that have to do with his music? That’s a pic leaked by a nigga that don’t like him.

      2. That’s false, gillie wrote none of his shit, although sources close to wayne have told me he coached him on BMJR

      3. I dunno about that shit I’m not gonna touch that one.

      4. He smart for squashing with 50 Cent, 50 Cent might be swole but Birdman is no fucking joke and said he will blow up a nigga neighborhood behind wayne. The real Birdman in ’94> Soulja Slim

      5. The fuck are you talking about? Wayne never dissed drama you reaching ass idiot.

      6. Empire didn’t put this nigga on top once again you fucking imbecile.

      7. Wow what a good reason to boycott Wayne.

      Conclusion: Trippin, you’re dumb as shit and your internet priveleges should be revoked.

    see now that makes sense but its too late
    he should speak more clear next time

  • Jack

    well this has been the final straw for little wayne as far as I’m concerned I’m not gunna bump his music anymore trippin really summed it up lil wayne is a fraud to begin with #8 fake gang affiliation.

    • Tom@myspace

      fake gang affiliation? How you know this nigga isn’t a real blood? I don’t know either but he hasn’t been killed yet or called out by Blood OGs so I can only guess it’s the real deal.

      Plus why the fuck would you stop listening to a nigga because of his personal life? The last straw? Niggas will hate regardless. You ain’t bump this nigga shit to start with.

  • Jack

    the good songs on the carter 3 are tie my hands with robin thicke but even that one is just ok to much talking shoot me down is good if your high and beat build is good if your a musician. and thats it comfortable was better on the mixtape version so i won’t be buying his album and this is from someone who has 1 and 2.

  • Ghost Deini

  • Big Jay

    Uh oh, Wayne says some retarded mess on the record, and it came back to bite him in the wallet, and now he’s backtracking.

    “Lil’ Wayne said he has no problem given out his music for free”

    This is a lie. Look up that Rolling Stone article they did on him, he’d charge a family member $75,000 just for a cameo, which he puts on record a half hour after he hears the other parts of a song.

    …and here comes the Carter III, apparently the best rap album EVER (I might download it to see what the fuss is about. If I actually like it, I won’t delete it. But you won’t EVER catch Big Jay buying a Lil Wayne album), that he’s recorded like 500 songs for that keep getting leaked out. Tell me, if he charges $75,000 for a weed influenced freestyle, you think he’d actually give his album away? No, he wants that money, even if it ruins his credibility.

    He’s backtracking, trying to refine his original comment that targeted all DJs, hoping that all the other ones that have the Carter III will not leak it, and that those who have it will not share it anymore.

    Don’t mess with Wayne’s money, or he’ll have to change his story and try to appease you to make you stop messing with his money.

    I heard the sound byte. He meant what he was said. Once he gets off the Juice maybe he will think twice before he speaks. Until then stay tuned for the next backwards statement.

I don’t know no mixtape DJs.” This lil nigga been a homo for a lota years now. I know this lil nigga personally from the years I stayed in the N.O. and he doesn’t have any balls!! He always say shit and tuck his tail b’tween his legs and run behind Baby who himself was knocked out and raped in Orleans Parish Prison, PARISH PRISON! That nigga a bigger pussy than lil Gayne. Fuck all Cash Money/Lil Wayne supporters! Hit me if you got a fuckin problem!!!

  • NOLA2727

    I don’t know what’s all the fuss is about when people mention lil lame (lil wayne sorry).This dude is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overrated and 90 percent of shit he’s spits has no fucking meaning or he’s trying sooooooooo fucking hard to be fly .Down here in the N.O. man you should see some of these brainwashed dudes out here.They think this nigga the best thing since jesus christ. This cat is an average rapper at best.He has no creativity ,stays bitting other rappers,and there is just nothing special about this dude.Save your money a few weeks after june 10th and go to best buy on July 1st and buy that new nas album.I love some artist from the south but this shit is getting out of hand.This corny bullshit is putting choke hold the art form.Some of these labels need sign artist like Royce da 5’9″( He’d smash lil wayne’s ass in a sec)Saigon( Would lyrical destroy him with word play and subject matter)Papoose( Would alphabetical slaugther his ass).This nigga wayne is a fake thug .Baby is the nigga who put in the street work .I have a question . Why would people back a nigga who kisses a another man in the mouth repeatitly ,talks a bunch of shit and takes back and every word he says?If this was a nigga you see everyday in the hood you’d call him fake and you’d run him every time you see him, because you’ll feel like he’s a bitch! Why does this nigga gets stamp on his pussy passport.You lil wayne disciples need to wake up. The Whore Of Babylon is about to fall!I’m Out !

  • GuapGeneral

    ^Hahahahaha. Homie does kind of have a point. But some of his is dope. He’s definately no the best thing on the market. Cats like Rick Ross and T.I. Are above him in my opinion. He does do his thing though, sometimes. You can’t deny that. He’s just not consistant. If he puts out 10 songs, 5 will be trash 2 will be average at best and 3 will be dope. Tha Carter III definately doesn’t live up to the hype. I tried listening to it last night and couldn’t get all the way thru it. Nd this is coming from someone who’s been rocking with Wayne since ’98. I didn’t just jump on the bandwagon, dickriders.

That would be very nice . Can We get some real rappers in the mainstream! Is it to late for this to happen? I can’t help it.I don’t know what’s worst,him being overrated or his arrogance.

  • Trippin

    @ Bull

    I’m not gonna get mad at you lil homie because you’re probably only 13 & I’m 26. But let me break things down for you with facts. Obviously you know how to use a computer so do the online research then do the research with people you know in the prison systems.

    A few more points:

    #1 Birdman confirmed that Wayne & Baby do kiss each other.

    Baby: “That’s my life, that’s my love, & that’s my thing”

    Young Buck, Juvenile, & TQ also confirmed it as well so the picture is not photoshopped

    #2 Gillie told us he wrote for Lil Wayne & also exposed the kissing incident first. Go to youtube & check it.

    #3 Lil Wayne dissed DJ Drama after the Aphilliates got raided in Atlanta for mixtapes. His quote on MTV: “…need to smarten up, but you gotta play the game fair”. Basically he said that Drama wasn’t doing things right, but ironically he now he needs Drama’s help to smooth things over with the djs. Unfortunately Drama dropped the ball for fellow djs in that interview.

    #4 Lil Wayne dissed Jay-Z in “Complex” magazine. “It’s not your house anymore & I’m better than you”

    #5 Jay-Z tapped Lil Wayne’s wack ass on a track with T.I. called “Watch What You Say To Me”

    #6 Several credible sources have already given us Baby’s track record from his time in Parish Prison so he’s not going to destroy a whole neighborhood over Lil Wayne. NY wouldn’t allow that

    #7 All the djs around the world who have included Lil Wayne on mixtapes have been dissed by him. It’s not about Empire because if Weezer really had beef with Empire he would have found him. If he was a real blood he should have had some cronies find Empire, but guess what? Lil Wayne is being extorted & isn’t a real blood per se. He bought his way in.

    #8 Benny Hoffman’s post confirmed a few facts that many of us already knew

    & most importantly…

    Yall niggaz gave that fool too many passes to begin with.

    I think that’s a pretty stupid comment to make. Empire has put out “The Drought” series, wich created a lot of hype on the internet for Wayne and his new album. If anything, Wayne should thank him for creating the demand for the Carter III. There are much more DJ’s that just put random tracks on a mixtape and then put it out as a “best off”-tape.These “The Drought Is Over”-tapes usually bring new tracks by Wayne, wich creates hype, wich let people want the album even more.

  • Dre Peoples

    AYO “Trippin”,you forgot fact #9……..Wayne Is Trash!

    #12 He’ll never be better than HOV(Now run along wit cha little ass hits/read my rap sheet,Nigga 3 classics-Jay-z

    #13 Niggas ain’t gonna stick by him if and when this Carter 3 shit stinks.They’ll go back to their regular lives just as little wayne will.The ghost writers he signed for the carter trilogy will get pissed with only writing mixtape shit and only writing for a nigga that can only produce gold albums and will leave and we’ll start hearing those wobbledy wobbledy bullshit’s that we used to.
