Ouu! That's intense.
Rap concerts have gotten a bad wrap lately. Seemingly every rap performance tends to end with violence, being followed up with several unflattering headlines. Rarely does it start on the artist’s stage though. However…
Lil Wayne paused an entire performance to give concert-goers an etiquette lesson. After someone threw an unidentified object on stage during Wayne’s set, the “Lollipop” rapper cut the music and offered the crowd some friendly advice.
“So, let me letchu know… Where I’m from […] we don’t throw s**t on stage,” he began.
While the crowd boo’d Wayne right after he stopped the music, they quickly started listening to what he had to stay. It took the artist only a few minutes to stay his piece, make his point and move on.
“Because all my ni**as got pistols and they don’t know who to shoot at,” the New Orleans born rapper continued. “So, if you throw something else, Ima be more safe and Ima be the bigger person and just leave. Cause I don’t want kill everybody.”
“Let’s go,” Wayne said before continuing on with his performance.
The video of the moment, which DJ Akademiks posted on Twitter, has been viewed over a million times already. “Low key Lil Wayne handled that maturely. Could b worse,” Akademiks captioned the clip.
“Respect a [goat] when you’re in their presence !” a Twitter user responded. “Lmaooo the way he went back into jammin after saying that,” another tweeted. “He needa highkey talk to Birdman like that,” one fan said.
And speaking of Wayne and Birdman… The two recently ran into each other in Miami. Because everyone is a paparazzi these days, the monumental moment was caught on camera. The two can be seen hugging and briefly chatting before the short clip ends.
Don’t be fooled
Coming in with the perfect timing, a Rich Gang affiliate was on Snapchat just as Wayne and Birdman possibly ended a long, long beef at LIV in Miami Beach. To the sound of Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares,” the duo hugged before exchanging a few words. Over the club’s loud stereo no one could hear the conversation between the rappers, but they both smiled and greeted each other warmly.
The meet may have been an accident though. Sources told TMZ that the Louisiana natives arrived in different cars. Wayne performed alongside 2 Chainz, while Birdman “kept a relatively low profile.”
Regardless, this is a welcomed change from the previous status of the “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy” rapper and Wayne’s relationship. Don’t be fooled though… The lawsuit between the two is still in full swing. Despite the fact that their latest meet up was all smiles, Wayne still needs his coins.
