Lil Wayne seems to have found himself in the middle of a beef war. Not with another person, but with an entire city. In fact, the biggest city in the country. In a recent interview with MTV, Weezy said he "flat out doesn't like New York" while answering a question about why his label pulled Nicki Minaj out of Hot 97's SummerJam line-up at the last minute. His unapologetic dismissal of New York probably has more to do with doing time at Rikers on weapons charges a few years back than, say, any misgivings towards the residents of the city. Regardless, New Yorkers don't take very kindly to criticism of their beloved city, so it caused a bit of a stir. And, professionally speaking, it's a ballsy thing for a rapper to say about a city that cherishes its landmark status as the spiritual home of hip-hop. Stylistically, Weezy doesn't anywhere near the same New York sound made famous by the Jay-Zs, Pete Rocks, Q-Tips, Swizz Beats, and RZAs of the world. So perhaps question needs to be flipped: Does New York even like Lil' Wayne?
