During an interview with MTV news, Fabolous expressed that he had no hard feelings towards Lil Wayne after the YMCMB rapper talked about his dislike for New York City. Fabolous mentioned Lil Wayne’s comments, and even added it to his record “So NY,” said that NYC hasn’t been the best musically but hoped to elevate that with his latest release.
“It’s his opinion,” Fabolous revealed. “So if he doesn’t like New York it’s not a bad thing. I do feel he spoke it out because it was how he felt. New York isn’t at its strongest point musically or something like that. It’s also hard to say that about any place. I don’t care if you do an interview and say ‘Yo, I don’t like Kentucky.’ The people of Kentucky are gonna have a little gripe about that…I took what he was saying and tried to empower some pride back into New York. You know what I mean, ‘I’m so New York, Weezy probably don’t like me.’ That’s what it was more about. Just making a statement and taking what he said and motivating people with it.”
Both rappers were at Club LIV in Miami where they had the opportunity to clear with the air with both parties in a jovial mood the discussion.
“I seen him at Club LIV and when I saw him I was like, ‘I’mma go over there and holler at him.’ Just to check the temperature and make sure everything’s okay because you know people hearing things and I don’t know which way they took [it],” said Fabolous. “And he actually came over to me and came and said ‘what’s up’…That was the end of it there. It was no reason to dwell on it. I even actually took a picture for my Instagram just to show the people that it wasn’t no big deal.”
