As we reported last week, Luther Campbell has given Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and Diddy until January 2012 to start giving back to the city of Miami in the form of community work, or risk having their passes revoked.
Campbell, also known as Uncle Luke was the front man for the Miami-based rap group 2 Live Crew. More recently he had an unsuccessful run at the Mayor’s office.
The ultimatum was issued via an article Campbell wrote for the Miami New Times.
I’ve got a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money Brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami. I’m tired of seeing these cats using up our beaches, soaking up our sunshine, taking over the nightclubs, and sleeping with our women without investing anything into the community. I want to know when Lil Wayne is going to do more than show up courtside at the American Airlines Arena. Hell, it’s not like he paid for them anyway. You know he got comped.
This free loading and mooching of my city has got to stop. There used to be a day when out of town rappers were scared to throw their weight around Miami. It didn’t matter if they were coming from New York or Los Angeles, they knew better than to act like they owned this mother f*****.
Artists knew better than to come to Miami and disrespect us.But now folks in Miami’s entertainment industry have gone soft, turning into a bunch of groupies just because they want to say they drank Rozay with the Cash Money crew.
Lil Wayne has finally responded. Writing on twitter that Campbell is “trippin.” More surprising was the shot Wayne took at DJ Khaled, saying he wasn’t “feelin” the DJ.
I think Luke is pretty serious about that deadline, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out.
What do you think of Wayne’s new beefs with Khaled and Campbell?
