DJ Khaled Says Lil Wayne's Miami Beef Is A "Misunderstanding"

DJ Khaled says that Wayne's recent spat with Miami is just a miscommunication.

Lil Wayne made headlines earlier this year when he dissed members of the Miami Heat after claiming to get kicked out of one of their games.

In response, Wayne was the subject of responses from Luther "Luke" Campbell, Trick Daddy, and Pitbull. Wayne later apologized to the city.

One Miami Hip Hop figure, DJ Khaled, didn't feel slighted by the situation.

"Miami is my city. I rep Miami and I feel like the Miami Heat is my team," explained Khaled to MTV's "RapFix Live." "I felt like Wayne went on the radio and showed love to the city and bigged up the city and its love,"

Khaled chalked the situation up to a simple disconnect between Wayne and Miami. "I've learned in this game there's a lot of misunderstandings, miscommunications, so it's about love, man, and I know it's love. And that's all I know, so if you gonna ask me, it's love."

Khaled also suggested that Wayne keep his sports loyalties under wraps. "When you're passionate about your sports, you can't really let it be known because if you know how much I really like the Jets, you might not be my friend anymore," he joked. "When it got back to Miami, it turned into, he just said 'eff Miami.' It had nothin' to do with the sports teams no more. When that was everything it had to do with; it was sports, and that's it."

    2. 30,000 who were polled called Miami the rudest city they've been too. Imagine the impact that kind of WOM will have on future tourism.

      funny, i live in miami and we are currently having one of our biggest weeks ever. ultra music festival (big techno thing) is now 2 weekends instead of one, and we are flooded with people from all over the world. the food network just has their wine and food fest last month and it was the biggest its ever been. fun fact for you miami haters, tourists will never stop coming here because the sun is shining, the water is clear, and the women are the finest in the country. families aren't the ones flying here to play in the water, it's college kids, couples with jobs looking to get away from their kids, and rich euros/latinos/russians. we're closer to vegas than disney. and we got lebron.

    Some more fun facts for you stubborn one's to ponder: 1. Mickey Arison, the owner of the Heat, is worth 5 billion. He has deep enough pockets to attract the best player in the NBA, Lebron James, to Miami. As long as Miami keeps winning titles, Miami will attract more rappers and celebrities who in turn drop big money in the clubs and restaurants. In turn, that attracts the everyday folk to Miami. Tourism will always play a factor, but in a recession, families aren't going to fly to Miami just to play in the water.

    Why don't you actually travel to Miami and take a look around the city and its surroundings. Alot of closed down businesses. It looks dirty. Even the famous beach looks dirty. Fact remains that if it wasn't for the Miami Heat that city would be attracting nobody. Tourism is always an up and down thing. You're always going to have people spending money on museums and night clubs, but the bigger picture is Miami ain't Las Vegas. Thanks for reciting the travel brochure though.

    "Miami does not need rappers" Oh yes they do. Just like they need NBA players like Lebron and Wade. What else does Miami have to offer besides sports and clubbing? Wayne and Birdman have enough money to jump start their economy anytime they visit. Take them out of the equation, and all Miami has to rely on is tourism, which isn't poppin off like it used too.

      Your argument could only be valid if you were only refering to American tourists. People from all over the world come to Miami and they ain't thinking about no Lil Wayne. The athletes rappers you mentioned are nowhere near the wealthiest people living or visiting Miami. You're just blinded by the flash and you're only thinking inside the box.

      I've gone to Miami six times in my life and the city where I'm from is considered a tourist mecca and is not doing so well in this economy while Miami is flourishing in tourism.

      That's right dumbass Miami had a RECORD YEAR for tourism in 2012! Your bitch ass thinks Wayne and Birdman can stimulate the economy better? L O L! Most of these tourists think Wayne and Birdman live in New Orleans! This is how we know you're some retarded ass bitch, you were just saying Wayne can buy Miami, then spun around and said why would he want to when WE KILLED your bullsh*t comment with FACTS. NOW, you're saying they can stimulate the economy when they visit? BITCH, THEY LIVE THERE! You think they can add 20,000 jobs for a year by doing shows and appearances? STFU you piece of sh*t.

      "and all Miami has to rely on is tourism, which isn't poppin off like it used too" ^ this clown....... "The 23.4 million visitors that came to Florida in the first quarter of 2012 represented an increase of 2.4 percent over last year's first quarter, Visit Florida, the state's tourism marketing arm, reported on Wednesday. Direct travel-related employment in Florida rose 1.9 percent to 1.03 million, adding 19,200 jobs over the past year and representing the largest employment total since first quarter 2008, the agency said. On the heels of a record year for the Florida tourism industry in 2011, its encouraging to see the trend of more visitors and more jobs extending into 2012, Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. An estimated 19.7 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the first quarter, up 1.2 percent. Florida experienced a 2.7 percent increase in Canadian visitors at 1.4 million and a 13 percent increase in overseas visitors with 2.4 million . Floridas 14 major airports had a 2.5 percent increase in total enplanements and recreation taxable sales for Florida the first two months were up 8.7 percent. The average daily room rate rose 5.7 percent and the occupancy rate for Florida hotels increased 2.7 percentage points." ^ SHUT THE F*CK UP QUOTE-MAN

    Miami knows they need lil Wayne $$ and all the other stars that visit South Beach on the reg. If and when the music scene in Miami acts as if they don't need anybody but themselves in Miami, that is when they become more isolated like they used to be before the How Can I Be Down festivals. Outsiders are making Miami MORE famous than the local stars have ever done, which is why Miami, on the music scence is more nationally known. You need to know Miami 'music politics' before you diss Khaled. Khaled has been there since day one with Dj Epps, and the Terror Squad starting to make the connection with Ny & Mia....

      Miami been the spot, out of town rappers are just now able to afford to live there.

      kingo is full of shit, you really think "rappers" keep the economy in Miami booming? gtfo... Miami does not need rappers, the locals don't blow up because there are so many other things going on in that city.. everyone knows, if you want to blow up in the music industry you go to NY or LA... not Miami.

      Entertainers including Lil Wayne, Birdman, Lebron etc. are way far from being the richest people in Miami, they help boost the city revenue but their absence won't cripple the city's economy, you're giving them too much credit brother.

  • LEVITIKUZ

    If Miami was truly your City, you wouldn't be cool with Wayne. It's a shame that when Wayne disses Miami, Khaled and Ross loss their balls and don't defend Miami and yet Pitbull is the one who calls out Wayne for dissing Miami. Even though Wayne & Pitbull make shitty music, at least Pitbull defends his turf. Gotta respect that.

      but he didnt diss the city. he dissed the team. Sports fans have been saying "fuck *insert team*" since the beginning and its never been perceived as hating the city but since it was wayne, people wanna take it as him dissing the city. And i dunno why some people are bitching about it because half of the people in miami didnt even support the heat until lebron got out there. Check the history. the games werent even sold out on just Wades name alone. Wasnt until lebron got out there so yall can just stop that

    If your rep Miami and rep the Miami Heat but also root for the New York Jets your a tool. No Miami fan roots for the Jets. Also, it wasn't a miscommunication, everyone heard what Lil Wayne said then heard his weak apology about wanting to be able to skateboard the streets without beef. DJ Khaled is the definition of a dick rider.
