Fabolous speaks on his Lil Wayne comment on "So NY," says he was hoping to uplift the city with the record.
Noted Brooklyn rapper Fabolous may have alluded to Lil Wayne and his comments about New York on his record “So NY," but during an interview with MTV News Fab revealed that he never had any hard feelings towards Lil Wayne after the Young Money rapper expressed his dislike for the city of New York.
While speaking with MTV, Fabolous explained that the city hasn’t been in the best of places musically and shared that he was hoping to raise a few spirits 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 the opportunity to clear the air with Lil Wayne when the two rappers both appeared 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.”
