Lil Wayne Says He's Not Wanted In Oklahoma City Thunder's Arena, The Team Responds

Lil Wayne says he was denied from being in the arena for a playoff game and Oklahoma City Thunder respond.

Although Lil Wayne wanted to attend NBA's Western Conference Semi-Finals in Oklahoma City, he didn't get a chance to purchase tickets, according to his reps. The YMCMB emcee said he was "denied by the team" but the team responded with a statement.  

"Was going to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena," Wayne tweeted

Mack Maine, Young Money's president, shared that a ticket broker explained the matter to him.  

"He finally just let me know, they not really tryin' to sell tickets to him," he told MTV. "They said they'll give him some tickets on the front row behind but they're not really tryin' to have him sittin' courtside." 

Team representative Dan Mahoney denied this to AP. Mahoney explained that Oklahoma City sold out every home game they have played this season and that front row seats were not available. He also noted, "We'd love to have him at a game, but like anyone else, he needs a ticket."

Beyond this, Maine says they weren't providing Wayne with special parking or an escort.

"Why would you actually want to cause pandemonium? That's gonna make it harder for your security," he noted. "We're not no prima donnas, but that's just common sense, for our safety and the safety of your building. We were basically just tryin' to take our brother to the game."

    "literally proving what i said. hip hop is a culture first" No Special Ed. It proves (once again) that hip hop was always about business. Case in point. Grandmaster Flash sued Sugar Hill Records for $5 million in unpaid royalities back in the early 80's. There is no such thing as an art form that exists solely for the love of a culture.

    "a culture, that was exploited by business" Rhyming on the corner with your friends may be considered culture, but don't mistake passion for the craft as meaning it was never about money. In the old days of hip hop many artists weren't up on the business end. They simply made songs, and assumed it would translate to big money. Problem was they didn't read the fine print in their contracts, or realize that they didn't own anything they were putting out. Some like KRS-1 or Rakim may have wanted it to be more of a cultural thing, but then they realized love of the culture don't pay the mortage, or put your kids through college.

      literally proving what i said. hip hop is a culture first, and then record labels realized they could exploit these people by offering them a little cheese knowing they didnt fully understand the contracts. hip hop has been a culture looong before krs and rakim foool

    "selling records has actually diminished in value" But once you make that purchase, it doesn't matter if the value of that CD plummets. It's like going to a fancy restaurant. You just spent an hour eating a meal for $100.00 and guess what. You ate it all. Yet the restaurant still got your money.

    "The Carter 4 was garbage, stop using record sales as your argument" One, you saying it was garbage is an opinion, not FACT, and two, record sales mean basically everything cause hip hop is a business. Wayne himself wouldn't be in this if it was just for the love, and I don't blame him.

    • Anonymous

      And Finally, its WHO is buying the album? Teenage girls who recite his rhymes filming themselves and posting it on youtube? Or real rap fans?

    • Anonymous

      Record sales aren't everything, selling records has actually diminished in value. People buy anything Wayne puts out now regardless of the quality. Tha Carter 1 and 2 were better albums but weren't mainstream enough to be big albums. 3 and 4 both sold millions of records but were worse in quality. Nelly sold 5milvwotj Country Grammar, nobody is reciting none of his lyricswasnt even one of the best albums that year but was a top seller. Sales are over saturated these days

      "hip hop is a business" no its not. its a culture, that was exploited by business, and by people like talentless wayne. if you actually think record sales "mean basically everything" then you are borderline retarded

      This was the best quote of the article. They just want private parking, security and front row courtside seats....come on...give the guy a break!! It's not like they are asking for special treatment or anything. Oh and they just want all of those requests filled on game day, hours before OKC hosts their first ever conference finals playoff game. I'm shocked the kind people of Oklahoma didn't accept Wayne and his entourage's request.....

Fuck out of here square, you can easily hate on somebody for changing their swag if it also changes the way they deliver their music, you fucking retard. Wayne is garbage now, he hasn't been good since The Carter 2, and that's being generous. Don't use G.O.O.D. Music as your name either because you're making the fans of that label look like dipshits.

  • AMiAM

    well its understandable that he would need some sort of specific assistance from his transportation to the seating without causing people to act out of the ordinary. He's a celebrity and people bug out when they see people of his stature. regardless of how you feel about his music, life, etc. However, if it's sold out, then it's sold out. Need ticket in advance like normal folk

  • t

    for the record wayne is a lakers packers and hornets fan, he only goes to the heat games cus baby and them like going. i dunno why he wanted to be at the okc game, he must of been in the area. but knowing how okc and there fanbase is i can see why they didnt want wayne at the games. but next year if wayne really wants to be courtside he could if i was him id show up just because of this

    common sense is acknowledging that front row seats are sold out so keep crying ymcmb dumbasses. HHDX why did you cut that part out? is it because you are bought by ymcmb , this is just sad very very very sad.

    Y'all don't keep up with sport center? there was a segment a brief segment at that, but there was rumor that Lil Wayne and Trina had hooked up at a club, and as of right now Trina is dating James Harding. Just thought I let y'all know, Google it

    • no...

      you got that from Mediatakeout, and everyone knows that that bullshit gossip site, is real trustworthy. I don't know why websites site Mediatakeout as a source or why big places like Sports Center actually buy into their bullshit. It is the same site that said that Drake was leaving YMCM about 10 times, that Beyonce is pregnant again, Kanye and Jay hate each other, etc. Lil Wayne did date Trina years ago, they broke up or some shit, and then she released a diss track or two against him.

  • tired of ymcmb articles HHDx has sold out

      @ the guy above me you are the epitome of faggot. being a fan of the team is more important. you're train of thought is so fucking stupid. so you're saying that if someone asks you what team are you a fan of, you would say "NBA"? DUMBASS (not going to do the gay money symbols).

    • this is why the white man laughs at you punks

      of course we can be fans of teams and stick with them, But what is more important being a fan of a team or bneing a fan of the game. If you are a fan of the game then fuck which team you choose just aslong as you know who has potential and who doesn't .....DUMBA$$ES

    • Haha

      @ Anonymous You should stop watching sports...obviously you don't know what being a fan is. I understand following a player that you like from team to team but not switching from team to team depending on who's doing better. That shit is fucking gay, just like Lil Wayne.

    • KDT

      @YouSerious? I always say how full of bullshit he is when he jumps on every bandwagon too but in his Fireman music vid he has a Packer hat on so it seems pretty fair that he was a fan of the Packers. other than that, its all bandwagon bullshit.

      Nigga thats the dumbest thing ever and your the reason so many teams get stereotyped for having shitty fans. Niggas like you that like to dickride teams while there winning and actin like you a fan but the minute they start losin you go to the next team. Jump off a bridge dumbshit.

    • YouSerious?

      Lil Wayne has been a "Fan" of: The Packers (JUST as Rodgers heated up) The Heat (JUST as the Big 3 got together) The Mavs (JUST when they won the championship) And now the Thunder, JUST as Durant is becoming one of the best players in the game. Would it kill to show love to the Saints or Hornets? Saints have been great and the Hornets are about to have Anthony Davis.
