DJ Doo Wop Responds "Fuck Lil Wayne!" With Video
Doo Wop told HipHopDX, "Basically Lil Wayne made a statement disrespecting all mixtape deejays.I understand ifhe's sour at a few dudes who exploit the game by leaking too many songs from your upcoming album on their CD, but that doesn't justify him shitting on the whole culture." The veteran added, "Lil Wayne wants to separate himself from the very thing that helped him become a household name, and it needed to be addressed. He made a million songs and freestyles last year, but the radio mostly played the commercial releases. How the hell do you think the rest ofhis jointsgot heard?"
The New York mainstay defended his peers and made an enduring case for the mixtape, in a message directed to Wayne. "Nowadays the game is what it is.Downloading is at an all time high and CD salesat an all time low.So even if mixtapes didn't exist, sales still wouldn't be whatthey should. Don't blame the deejay, homey. Thank the deejay.You don't hear 50 Cent shitting onmixtapes. He's a product of it, and never denies it." Doo Wop was among the top deejays instrumental in 50 Cent's rediscovery, with a collaborative freestyle appearing on 2002's Guess Who's Back?
The New York deejay has put his acclaimed mixing abilities to new mediums in a video just released (posted below). The edited clip, which includes various punch-ins of commentary against Wayne, along with an array of images of the work he's done, shows adoptive father and Cash Money Records CEO Birdman commending deejays for their hard work at the Core DJs Retreat two months ago.
Narrative editing of interview clips and song excerpts goes on to mock Lil Wayne for the leaked pictures of him kissing Baby on the mouth, hypocritical statements about New Orleans awareness after Hurricane Katrina, and drug addiction.
The clip closes with Ronald "Slim" Williams, co-founder of the Cash Money label, affirming mixtape deejays at the same retreat, "Y'all created a monster in Lil Wayne."
