If you had a choice would you hang out with Jay-Z or Lil Wayne? I would say if you are an adult, that doesn’t wear outfits like the one above, then the answer would be obvious. A lot of rappers are egomaniacs that have yes men telling them how great they are all the time (sort of like athletes), so it isn’t surprising that Wayne doesn’t know how to react to someone like Lebron, who doesn’t have to bow down at his feet.
Instead of dealing with it like a man, he handles it the same way he dresses, like a teenage girl. That is why you are seeing the Tweets and ranting about sleeping with Bosh’s wife. That is what kids and unemployed Twodels do.
Bron’s camp has some insight on the situation courtesy of Hip-Hop 365.
According to a member of LeBron’s inner-circle who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Lil Wayne over the years has continuously made efforts into building a relationship with LeBron, similar to what the MVP shares with Jay Z.
And this has included invites for concert appearances, birthday parties and video sessions, but LeBron through the years has respectfully declined. “LeBron is extremely busy, he respects Lil Wayne and his peers in the entertainment industry, but he just doesn’t like to be bothered like that” says the source.
A lot of it also stems from jealousy, no longer is Lil Wayne the top draw at events in Miami. Usually, Lil Wayne holds top billing at Liv, not that night, as LeBron and his entourage of 12 entered the party, all eyes shifted away from the stage Lil Wayne was performing on and towards the 3-time league MVP and his crew.
“It’s an unhealthy obsession” says the source, but he reiterates that LeBron does respect the Young Money rapper and has no ill-will towards him, but he’s not going to bend over backwards to appease him.
You have to know your lane. Lil Wayne is a highly successful rapper and I am sure he is worth millions and millions of dollars, but he isn’t Lebron and he isn’t Jay-Z. It doesn’t seem like Lebron has anything personal against him, but he has crafted his image in a certain way and that doesn’t include hanging with Lil Wayne. It would be more likely that Lebron would hang out with Drake (which is the reason Drake has stayed far away from the controversy)
So, Wayne needs to take his skateboard and go home, he is sounding more like a crazy male groupie than a CEO.
