Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell Calls On Lil Wayne, Diddy & DJ Khaled To Give Back To Miami

The former 2 Live Crew member puts the Miami residents on blast for "freeloading" and not contributing to the community.

2 Live Crew’s Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell has written an open letter to Lil Wayne, Diddy and DJ Khaled to give back to their current residence of Miami, Florida and stop “freeloading.”

In the letter published via Miami New Times, the former mayoral candidate blasts the artists for “soak[ing] up our sunshine, tak[ing] over our nightclubs, and sleep[ing] with our women without investing anything into the community.”

“Just 'cause Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled are from New Orleans doesn't mean they don't have to be a part of the community. They're getting rich while enjoying fun and sun,” he wrote. “I want to see Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy, and all their boys start doing more for Miami. I want to see them doing fundraisers to help youth sports and after-school programs. I want to see them at FCAT rallies.”

Campbell gave the Hip Hop musicians until January 1st to start giving back to Magic City. He ends the letter with a light threat, stating, “If I don't see them giving back to the Magic City, I'm gonna have their Miami cards revoked. They won't be getting into any more nightclubs. They won't be allowed near our women.”

    i think this is the stupidest, most immature thinking process i probably will ever hear. who CARES!!! no they dont free load. they purchase luxuries here; cars, property, etc, etc, etc and so on. we need rich ppl in miami(not that we dont have any) to spend money. they are tourist, tourist=money for the economy=money for any charity or any stupid thing you want them to be involed with. stop treating these ppl like gods as if they're involvement in these activities will help kids get better scores in the FCAT or heal a kid with cancer cuz it wont. they are reagular ppl who come to miami because of what we have here, clubs, women, sun, beaches. BTW this is exactly what regular tourist come to miami for and we dont tell these regular tourist with equal to more resourses than theese celebs t get more involved and stop free loading. this is so stupid

  • Everett Da Amin Rucker

    A "threat" like that wouldn't want to make anybody do a thing for the community. He should have just come up to him in person and ask.

  • Andre Fukyourlife Cooper

    Okay uncle luke..........49 more states to go.......Wasn't this the same man that didn't live up to being a good father? it is there money....it is called get your weight up(step your life game up)

  • 1luv

    thats all the man is saying. aint nothing that can hurt they pockets or they pride. though, it is weird celebrating with the opposing team in a club after they just beat your hometown where you LIV. unless you dont really give a shit about the place or people anyway. yall have a good day. peace

  • OK

    "I want to see them do like Pitbull who works closely with the Kiwanis Club in Little Havana and DJ Irie who puts on a charity weekend for the Make-A-Wish Foundation."

  • read it & decide

    I have a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy, and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami. I'm tired of seeing you cats soak up our sunshine, take over our nightclubs, and sleep with our women without investing anything into the community. I want to know when Lil Wayne is going to do more than show up courtside at the American Airlines Arena. Hell, it's not like he has to pay for the tickets anyway. You know he gets comped. This freeloading must stop. There was a day when out-of-town rappers were scared to throw their weight around Miami. It didn't matter if they were coming from New York or Los Angeles; they knew better than to act like they owned this place. Artists knew better than to come to Miami and disrespect us. But now folks in our entertainment industry have gone soft, turning into a bunch of groupies just because they want to say they drank rozay with the Cash Money crew. Just 'cause Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled are from New Orleans doesn't mean they don't have to be a part of the community. They're getting rich while enjoying fun and sun. They rap in their songs about King of Diamonds and LIV, where Lil Wayne was partying it up with Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks after they beat the Miami Heat for the NBA championship. What kind of sell-out move is that? I want to see Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy, and all their boys start doing more for Miami. I want to see them doing fundraisers to help youth sports and after-school programs. I want to see them at FCAT rallies. And I'm giving them a deadline. They got until January 1. If I don't see them giving back to the Magic City, I'm gonna have their Miami cards revoked. They won't be getting into any more nightclubs. They won't be allowed near our women. And Lil Wayne is gonna have to find floor seats for New Orleans Hornets home games because he won't be allowed inside the Triple A.

    i say why not? I agree with Luke, make them fools give back to the community and stop the leeching and exploitation of Miami. Luke is the unofficial mayor of Miami, he has every right to speak on it

  • bartsmart1978

    who is uncle luke and why should i care?

  • Anonymous

    A real person knows you have to reciprocate what you got from the people. A fake person is selfish and wonders why they ain't getting anything back from the people. ASK BILL GATES IF I'M LYING. He's giving away BILLIONS. Y'all crying and being selfish over your little HUNDREDS! And don't speak on taxes and charity, I know about that! You can't give up a dollar? THAT'S WHY YOU CAN'T GET ONE BACK!

    Damn, i guess reading comprehension isnt something they stress in school anymore. The key word here is residence, meaning where u call home. If they down there calling miami home then yes they need to break bread and give back. I from the West Coast but im currently in DC and for the time being call it home and i still get down with community activisim even though i aint been around but for a little bit. I feel where luke coming from.

    • Sivraj X

      it's looks like i hurt that person's feelings by talking about what takes care of their family. they tried to put some other kind of twist to it that didn't make any sense at all. we talking about people giving back to the community by paying taxes. you need to get your head checked, because you have a complex problem due to your family and you getting food stamps, welfare and section 8. i bet you and your family have the nerves to buy weed with government money.

    • Anonymous

      So you think you better than someone by mentioning welfare? Whites get more government handouts than Blacks. Your ignorant self forgot there are more Whites than Blacks in America. Farming subsidies are welfare. Tax breaks are welfare. Well off Whites get food stamps too in this recession. Now reply back with some nonsense so I laugh at you because you think because you have a job you're better off than the next person. People are BROKE who have been working and STILL working for decades. Your booksmarts mean NOTHING in REAL LIFE.

    • Sivraj X

      You really are an idiot for typing that shit. I guarantee 85% of the population don't participate in community activism outside of their homes. Just because you live in a particular county, doesn't mean you have to anything extra outside of paying taxes and not breaking the law. You hating on these millionaires, because they are rich enough to have mansions in 5 different states and you don't. Breaking bread is paying your taxes and not getting on welfare, ebt and section 8.

      Yes I Agree, but Luke has really caught off guard.

    The Late DJ Uncle Al would be ashamed at how miami has become since he got killed.

    Luke, you bitch ass nigga, how dare you call out people living in a city you don't own. Last time I checked, your bitch ass was doing shows all up and down the state of Louisiana with the 2 Live Crew. You never helped the Katrina victims and you never marched, when black men were getting killed by racist police officers in Louisiana. You bitch ass coward!!!

    • Road Dawg

      This punk bet not ever set foot in New Orleans trying to do a show. Luke getting taxed everytime he attempt to show his face in New Orleans.

  • Christopher Currie

    All of this is good commentary, but taking it to the level of "(sleeping) with our women" kind of puts women in a position of being a commodity-- Look, all rappers, especially those who are prosperous, should look to have a good relationship with the community they live/stay/party/do business in. It should be substantive investment, though, not just throwing a White Party downtown and calling that investment, or renting out a yacht at the marina for the week. some substantive community help initiatives include: buying books and buying school supplies for kids, putting money toward rehabbing and/or building recreation centers. If you can blow 1 million at a strip club (allegedly), imagine what could be done with rehabbing an abandoned building and turning it to a rec center.

      luke campbell thinks that he has the right to act all high and mighty now. Just because you coach a youth football team where 75% of the little boys don't even graduate high school, you think you can talk trash. luke is part of the problem in miami, from the negative seeds he planted years ago. he needs to look in the damn mirror.

    • 305 Old Gold

      thats the point. aint really 'bout no street sh!+ although he really could get they ass "revoked". Luke just saying yall eating the food up, using the toilet paper, running the air conditioner, den ni@@uh help pay the light bills up in this b!+ch wich yall never broke ass. shout out to Big Mama. yeah

      I agree with you Wayne does need to do something with all that money. This other lame frog doesn't know what he's talking about Wayne ain't been doing shit with that money he's robbing.

    • Harlem Ghost

      Dear Drag Queen, Lil Wayne paid his taxes, so he already giving to the city of Miami. Skywalker doesn't do very much for the communities he helped destroy. A large part of the Miami black club lifestyle was created by this bastard. He still hasn't paid the community back, as a matter of fact, he doesn't even has his family straight. All of Luke's older kids hate his guts, because he was a horrible father to them. He needs to sweep around his own front door first before trying to check Puff.

  • 305 Old Gold

    ....oddly enough, he's right. trick daddy dem, flo-rida, even ross done rep some kind a ways in the streets on ground level. everybody want the pussy, ass & titties wid da sun in the fun image and aint circulating no dollas, no resources or contributing to building. yall fucking round thats why latinos build, own & run all this shit. haitians coming up a close second. we all related end of the day, but where money gets re-invested depends on who controlling. call they puzz-ass out Mr. Campbell

    • Anonymous

      Ok, so why doesn't Luther give back to all of the cities he made money in? Why doesn't he call out all of the latinos from other countries who are getting rich in Miami? Black people are so stupid and Luther is proving that money can't make you smart.

  • Broward County

    I respect Uncle Luke, and everything he is saying is on point. Everybody knows Puffy's right hand man, Harve Pierre, is a zoe, so he gets love from ZP. And Baby has been showing love to Sabal Palm and Zoe Pound for years. That- in a nutshell- is why these cats can run around like they are at home in Miami. But if Miami is your second home, you need to break bread. Now back in the era when Miami was REAL... when Ike ran Liberty City, Bunky ran 'Town, and Rick ran Opa-Locka, it was understood that O.B.'s had to pay tax. But once the Federal Government came in and shut Miami down in 1995, sending all the real niggas away for long bids, Miami has slowly but surely gone downhill. So much so that this nigaa "Rick Ross"- a former jail guard- has the city on his back. I respect what you're saying, Luke. But the young niggas growing up in Miami these days ain't built like the Original Gangsters who held it down in the 70's and 80's. These young niggas enjoy seeing out-of-town niggas run through their city... Y'all don't feel me, tho.

      I think the point was, she had to go to the white man's jail and she can't enter this country anymore, duh. Governor Scott has more power and control over more killers than you. You couldn't slap him if you wanted to. People in Miami bragging about and claiming gangstaz that ain't even from Florida. That proves that even in the old days, real gangstaz was coming to Florida and taking over lol.

      Lmfao ur dumb as fuck its well known blancos alive and well in columbia still running a coke empire....if u were from florida ud know the whole state laughs at rick scott why the fuck would u even bring him up lmfao like rick scotts goin to bongos or the dolphin mall u fuckin hilarious.

    • Buck Law

      Dummy, the governor of Florida is white and white people run Miami as well as this whole country. Are you really that stupid? I just think you wanted to disagree, so I forgive your bitch ass. Blanco got sent to jail by white people who had her ass running all the way to California, then they deported her ass out of the country.

      Hahahhaha last commentor never been to miami..shit im white and from fl..white people dont fuck with miami. In the 80s and 90s the godmother had that shit on lock. White people have always and will always stay in homestead and hollywood.

    • Buck Law

      You sound like a foolish child. Black people have never ran Miami. The white people called, "Uncle Sam" been running that shit, while the niggas fight for crumbs in the ghetto. A nigga a shoot his fellow black man, but won't touch a skinny weak ass white police officer. There were only 2 black men who even had night clubs back in the day in Miami and one of them was Luther. The whites and latinos owned 97% of the million dollar earning clubs, while the blacks had bullshit hole in the wall spots earning crumbs.
