NYC rapper Fabolous may have made indirect references to Lil Wayne and his remarks about New York on his record “So NY,” but in an interview with MTV News Fab stated that he never had an issue or bad feelings towards Lil Wayne after the YM rapper uttered his dislike for the city of New York.
Speaking with MTV, Fabolous said that the city hasn’t been the greatest music wise and expressed that he was hoping to lift a the state of mind with the release of “So NY.”
“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.”
Fabolous even had a chance to get the issie straight with Lil Wayne when the two rappers both showed up at Club LIV in Miami.
“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.”
