If it isn’t obvious by now: Lil Wayne loves sports. When there’s a college or NBA basketball game with one of his favorite teams, rest assure he’s nearby. During his one-on-one interview on the Jim Rome On Showtime show Wayne talked about sports and athletes who’ve rapped. On a more personal note the “How To Love” rapper showed his softer side.
The interviewer asked Lil Wayne about his 2010 criminal possession of a weapon conviction, which he served time for in New York’s Rikers Island. Considering last week’s tragic shooting in Newtown, CT Wayne wanted viewers to know if there’s one thing in his life he could change it’d be the whole weapon incident. “Before I leave, I want to say you mentioned that in 2010, I was locked up for a weapon. If there was anything I could do in my life that I could ever change, it’d be that,” he said. Without being asked about Sandy Hook Wayne concluded the show with a message to Newtown, CT. “Sandy Hook Elementary, my heart goes out to you,” he said showing Sandy Hook written on his white tee.
Slews of celebrities sent out their condolences to the families affected by last week’s shootings. Celebrity parents in particular took the news hard. This father of four is maturing. It’s all about growth, Weezy F. Baby.
