Today on ESPN’s “First Take,” rap star Lil Wayne said the Miami Heat being blown out last night in a 111-92 loss at home to the San Antonio Spurs was “something we’ll never see again.” The Spurs managed to build a 25-point lead, an advantage Lil Wayne brushes off saying, “the Heat still came within seven.”
A proud Los Angeles Lakers fan, Lil Wayne said that because of “Lebron James and Dwyane Wade,” the Miami Heat will ultimately win “7 games” and earn their third straight NBA title.
Lil Wayne’s take would’ve been interesting, to say the least. His music is filled with racial (and misogynist) epithets, most notably the N-word. And Justin Bieber is closely affiliated with the record company that Lil Wayne runs. Surely, Wayne has some opinions on the recently revealed videos that show a younger Justin Bieber repeatedly saying n*gger and joking about black people dying?
Lil Wayne says he’s sticking by Justin Bieber, even after a second video of the 20-year-old pop singer making racist jokes surfaced. In case you’re curious, Lil Wayne has harshly condemned Donald Sterling. In a video the rapper says, among other things, “f*ck Donald Sterling.”
It’s surprising and unfortunate that “First Take” host Steven A. Smith, who has been so vocal on the Donald Sterling controversy, didn’t take the time to question the rap star on these ongoing issues.
