Playing the Field: Lil Wayne, Adrienne Williams-Bosh story could get nasty

“You claim to be a player but I f***ed your wife.”Tupac Shakur

The above is the most simple, yet effective rap/song insult in the history of writing rap/song insults. Watching “Tupac: The last 24 hours” last night on Current TV (yes the network still exists and yes, the John Belushi ’24′ is fantastic as well), I was reminded that you can never be 100 percent honest about people within your own industry 100 percent of the time. For instance, I could write “I heard that (insert name) from the Boston Globe is the laziest bastard going” or “(insert name) from the Boston Herald doesn’t watch a second of the actual game when he covers Celtics games – he simply plows through the free buffet and then proceeds to kiss the largest amount of athlete ass you’ve ever seen, only to get a C-minus quote.”

You might whisper about such things within an industry and once in a while drop some hints, but to ALWAYS flat-out say these things in a public forum? That’s a recipe for ostracism but more likely, death.

Rapper Lil’ Wayne is treading on thin ice these days. With hip-hop and the NBA tighter than ever (Nick Cannon is apparently the Pat O’Brien of today’s league, right down to the embarrassing voicemails), Lil’ Wayne needs to know better than to blatantly say in a public forum that he had sex with the wife of the third best player on the league’s world champion.

After leading an audience in chants of “F*** the NBA!” and “F*** the Miami Heat” this past weekend, Lil’Wayne pulled a Tupac:
“Let them n****** know I’m from the streets,” he said. “Ain’t no Twitter beef. Take it to the f***ing streets. Fuck all them n******. F*** Lebron [James]! F*** She-Wade! F*** Chris Bosh….And I f***ed Chris Bosh’s wife!”

The Miami Heat organization put in a request to the league to ban Lil’ Wayne from performing at NBA events, according to the rapper. Of course the league may have just decided that things got a little too strange with Wayne during last year’s All-Star activities and simply decided to not invite him back.

Either way, the next time Lil’ Wayne shows up in the stands at American Airlines Arena, you can bet that ABC’s conservative cameras won’t find him.
