We realize that your interest in Lil’ Wayne has probably hit its own lil’ wane at this point. But bear with us for one last Weezy post: As some of you may have heard, LW was spotted earlier this year kissing rapper (and father figure) Birdman, and the photo prompted much rumor-mongering not only about the two men’s sexuality, but about whether they pay their entourage members exclusively with headbands and white T-shirts. Today the Baltimore City Paper addressed the photo in an admirably subtle manner:
After the departure of B.G., Juvenile, Turk, and producer Mannie Fresh, Cash Money CEO Birdman probably spent a lot of time on his knees in thanks that Lil Wayne is still around. Though still a Hot Boy, after nearly a decade in the game Wayne is eager to prove that he’s far from a little squirt, regularly beating off the competition with such force that it’s understandable if he’s feeling a little testy on the duo’s new album. A rapper with this much spunk coming out his mouth doesn’t need to spend any more time boning up on his skills or trying to impress people with his stamina. Wayne effortlessly dominates Like Father, Like Son to the point that Birdman often gets the shaft.
Shazam! We can’t wait for their take on the David Gest-Clay Aiken tour.
