Lil Wayne has shown today just how business savvy the rap star really is. Following the hugely publicised donnybrook between two of hip hop’s biggest names, Drake and Chris Brown, Weezy has said enough is enough, claiming that bad blood means bad business.
The ‘beef’ in question happened not even a week ago at WiP nightclub in NYC. Various stories have been thrown around, but the long and short of it is that there was a punch-on, leaving both Dreezy and Breezy looking pretty red and sore. While the men in question were nowhere to be seen when police arrived, the matter is looking like it will make it to the courtroom, with Brown’s lawyer claiming that Drake was one of the aggressors.
But today, head of the Young Money crew, Lil Wayne, has put his foot down. TMZ reported that sources close to Drake have confirmed that Lil Wayne, Birdman, Mack Maine and other members of the posse have all called Drake, trying to talk sense into him and convince him to bury the hatchet. Brown, who features on a number of up-and-coming Young Money tracks, has a habit of making massive hits, which translates very nicely to massive bucks. And the longer this pathetic excuse for a beef between rappers plays out, the longer the company risks minimising returns.
Sources have also said that Drake has ignored the advice, refusing to extend an olive branch to Brown. It would appear that Drake, who stars in the 2012 series of Degrassi High, is about to learn a hard lesson that ‘making money matters most’ – time to swallow that pride.
