Lil Wayne cursed at a Duke freshman?
by Chris Chase, USA TODAY Sports
Duke freshman Rasheed Sulaimon says he was on the receiving end of a one-way battle rap during Tuesday night’s 75-68 victory over Kentucky.
Rap superstar Lil Wayne was sitting courtside for the game in Atlanta and Sulaimon says he was dispensing some profanities in Duke’s direction. Sulaimon tweeted: “Still a @LilTunechi [Wayne's Twitter handle] fan but was shook when he cursed me out court side lol. Where the duke love at slime.”
I’m not about to doubt the word of an 18-year-old freshman, Dukie or not. And I’m not in the habit of defending men who wear those pants in pulic (see picture). But doesn’t this sound out of character for Lil Wayne?
He may have cursed, but it seems like Weezy would have more respect for the game than to curse out a kid, especially one with a relatively low national profile like Sulaimon. (He’s a highly-regarded McDonald’s All-American but he’s not Harrison Barnes, is what I mean.)
Wayne is courtside at games all the time. Why would he start in on Rasheed Sulaimon if he hasn’t done it to Kevin Garnett? Plus, his battle raps are always weak anyway. He’s a lover (of purple drank), not a fighter.
By the way, I don’t know what made me feel older: Seeing Sulaimon was born in 1994 or Googling, in succession, “slime,” “slime rap,” “slime lil wayne,” and “is there an apostrophe in lil wayne.” I still have no idea what “slime” means.
