Lil Wayne got under some people’s skin when he said that he “flat out” doesn’t like New York City, New York. After facing some backlash for his comment, Weezy spoke to MTV News about the response, stating that he doesn’t pay any attention to what others are saying and that he’s completely unaware of how people interpreted his words.
“I have to be honest with you, dog: All I do is work, and I swear to God, I don’t even know the reaction,” said Wayne. “If I knew the reaction I’d know how to be able to answer that question, but I don’t know the reaction. I just say what I want to say, do what I want to do and fuck who don’t like it.”
He also said he hadn’t heard Fabolous’ “So NY,” which responded to the comment with the rhyme, “I’m so New York, Weezy probably don’t like me.” “Nah, I don’t listen to nothin’ else but myself, ’cause I’m just tryin’ to get better,” he said. “I always listen to what I could’ve said or done better, so I’m sorry.”
