The web has been buzzing with Lil Wayne vs the mixtape deejays controversy [click to read]. Although Weezy appeared on DJ Dramas Shade 45 Sirius Satellite radio show to clarify his remarks, not everyone is comfortable with Waynes initial reaction and subsequent clarification.

so fuck the dj? For real? Skillz said on his Okayplayer blog. Wow! First lemme say I dont get alot of radio/club play, sometimes my record dont apply & I can understand that but I dont care if I had no spins on my record I would never say fuck a dj. No DJ at all, I wouldnt say fuck a DJ that I dont know!!

Skillz apparently is bothered with Waynes statements and explains the importance of the deejay when it comes to giving an artist exposure.

It just baffles me how the hottest artist out right now can say Fuck the djs!! Where would he be without the DJ tho? Real talk, I hear his records and its always a dj playing it, he continues. If you hot then DJs gon fuck with you but they are part of the reason you hot, its a tag team kinda combo. You rap on everyones song (whether they want you to or not) you jump on cats tracks and send em out to the world, wouldnt you want someone to think its hot (enough) to play?

As for Wayne singling out deejays he hasnt met, Skillz doesnt feel they deserve animosity that Weezy has publicly displayed.

Niggas takin my music and puttin out CDs that aint official. Nigga? You rapped on 70 songs that wasnt official! A lot of these DJs are branding you. They making you hot!
