Lil Wayne, Puff Daddy, and DJ Khaled get a deadline

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke expresses his dislike for how rappers Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled use Miami but don't give back to the Magic City.

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.

C. Stiles

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.

Its a trip bcuz, i always used to say the same about artists giving back to the community. Luke pulled their (trill) card & he is speaking up on all our behalfs in mia. U see all these rappers on flyers for club performances but never having a giveaway at a local park or whatever, or sponsor a miami pop warner team i.e. We dont just want u in our clubs. Our kids buy and listen these mixed messages they sell and they are so caught up they forgot the meaning of giving back... These cats gotta tighten up... And maybe some parts of the illumiati is true..... Maybe they cant even control their own destiny..... Hmph thats a thought. This is big E speaking from a small but big town called perrine.

I agree with Uncle Luke. The question still stands: Will they do so?

Stilleto Smile

It's there choice to give back to whatever community they want to! They have other organization they give back to. What makes them obligated to give back to the Miami community? Just because they live here? How many other celebrity lives in Miami and don't give back to the community. They are helping Miami when they come here because they generate a lot of sales.I know Diddy gives back to the New York community. Wayne gives back to New Orleans. So why do they have to give back to Miami???@Stilleto_Smiles

Yo tio you are 100% right dude! these so-called rappers run around town here like they own the place.I remember like you said when back in the day you had to be careful around MIAMI now its getting to hollywood and it makes me sick, makes us look soft. I enacted a personal boycot of all non-miamian living in miami music. Maybe if we can get the rest of south FLA to join in we can eliminate this market from their pockets and then maybe they will respond, but as long as we keep thinkin they are cool they are gonna run around town like they own dade. I also agree its about the kids, I am in the healthcare sector and deal with many unfortunate issues in childhood and for some reason these kids really look up to these guys, we definately need these clowns to act more like community supporters and give back to these youths who look up to them sooooo much! Tio Luke keep up the good work dude, you for sure have my vote for mayor of Miami and then Gov. of Florida if you want! (305)

Luke I get your drift, they will come to Miami to make money, but when there is a fund raising event they stay away. These guys need to be on front street. If they don't like it go home. The only reason they don't go home the people there are asking the samething. You riding around in your big fine car, and gold hanging everywhere, but cann't say what you have done to help some who is down. Put there bottoms out

What other cities have you been too?....Chicago can be pretty bad pretty bad, So is D.C.... Detroit is prob the most neglected i think....So i dont buy this Miami is the worse. Im from Miami... and I think that everyone should give back to the community some way or another bc This is what made you, and may be you can make it better for the next person. But to call out 3 guys, sounds like a hater.

I just think poorly written article, poor argument, but giving back to the community is essential and builds character.

I think anyone that says Luke is right has to consider why he is calling out only these 3 music artists, for what reasons(soaking up our sun is not a good reason. sleeping with OUR women is not either), and are they the only 3, if not, broaden this article to talk about why people should give back to the community and u can use 3 as examples. But the way he wrote this article....HATER all Over it.

I also think that Luke contributed to this idea of sexism. Having women as property, whether he realized it at the time or not. It wasnt his fault, he bought in to the idea bc it sells.

He should b more concerned that miami is bein repped by a fake ass cop who is obviously full of shit n we as the hip hop community just let that go??? I'm ashamed of all hip hop these days its all fake bubble gum bullshit n I revoke my fanhood from this disgusting bastardized version of true hip hop music long live the classics 80-90s pre soldier boy era old school or no school Tampa got ur back Luke!!!!!

Luke is Irrelevant, and now annoying and Irrelevant. He is probably just upset because Lil Wayne drove by in a Rolls Royce, and he was gasing up his Kia. More obviously, jealous that he is not being comped court side Heat tickets.

This whole argument is WEAK. You calling them out because they Soak up our sun? Take over our night clubs?! and Sleep with out Women? like the women didnt have a choice... Should we call out every Wealthy person that Reps Miami..Bc if you not calling them out them too, then you just sound like a HATER.

I agree with you that People should give back to their community because it is the right thing to do, but not because of the reasons you talking about.

Tighten Luke, this a weak article

I strongly agree with uncle Luke. who I have seen countless times doing things lil wayne, dj khaled or Puffy would do. Even if they made a small effort it would be alot. Even though therye busy. U cant be too busy to give something back to a place uve exploited for Lord knows what. They should have a deadline, or a shakedown.

What Luke is saying is that all these rappers are blowing money over that bridge when in fact they don't want no blacks over there to begin with ( CHECK YA HISTORY BOOKS) These people fly in from all over the world making the business owners RICH as hell and wont even step back across the bridge to spend a dime in the real Miami . There are no black owned businesses on the beach in which the Miami Beach Police Dept is the only agency i know that parks Super Sized Corrections Buses in front of there building during major black events. The people who own those businesses on the beach take that money and run back to the plush areas of Miami and dare not spend a dime back into the black community . But our dumb asses year after year keep running over there during the holidays spending outrageous money just to say were on the fucking beach like its bragging rights. How many hip-hop artist from Miami who spends so many years " TRYING TO BLOW" so they call it , actually get exposed nationally outside of the Miami area? And here is another real focal point . I dare any black person who is not from here to go to certain parts of this city and try to buy something from a store and i guarantee you that you would think that you were slapped back to the 1960's civil rights movement. Blacks in Miami are hurting , Not only the poor but from all variations of life. Ask the county worker who spends 30 years working just to send his kids to college but when they obtain there degree they cant even get a good job here in the Magic City to uplift there family's. Why do you think ATLANTA is so packed with Miami folks and its sure not the weather. If your going to spend all that money on South Beach at least blow some of it in the Black Community in the various areas , And trust me not all areas look like OVERTOWN !
