Lil Wayne Doesn't Like New York

The Young Money star flat out can't stand the Big Apple.

Published August 22, 2012

Lil Wayne has finally told the world how he really feels about New York. In an interview with MTV, the Young Money leader reflected on why he chose to organize a free concert for Nicki Minaj’s Big Apple fans after the controversy between Nicki and NYC radio personality Peter Rosenberg.

"Flat out, I don’t like New York," the rapper said. "The whole Summer Jam Nicki thing, I can't really remember the situation, but I know it was my call. As far as last week [Nicki's show], last week was awesome. I think everything happens for a reason, and I think when people say that, you’re not supposed to leave it at, 'Everything happens for a reason.' I believe everything happens for a reason and then you make the most of that reason. I think we made the most of it last week."

The rapper has gone through a lot on NYC territory, including an arrest on gun charges, he eventually served an eight month sentence in NY's Rikers Island jail in 2010, and pulling the  Summer Jam drama. While Weezy feels he made the best out of Nicki's situation, the Louisiana rapper isn't holding any punches over his true sentiments for hip hop's original city. Hopefully the love he received from fans at last week's show will begin to sway his feelings. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
