Lil' Wayne may be the rap world's biggest bandwagon fan (how is a guy who grew up in New Orleans and spends his downtime in Miami Beach such a Packers fan anyway?), but apparently he's now back on good terms with the Heat. All it took was a nod from King James himself.
"Them niggas never speak to a nigga," he told the mag. "They don't chuck me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets ... Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I'm not rooting for you."
"Did I? Did I?" James responded when asked about the nod.
"You did?" shot back Wade.
So, we're taking that as something of a sign that Wayne is something of a Heat fan once again, but relationships between two ego-driven superstars are always gonna be shaky. We just can't wait for Wayne's celebratory rap, though, when the Heat win the championship.
