Lil Wayne Taking Shots At Frank Ocean
In his remix of Future’s song Turn On The Lights, YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne spits a line about Odd Future member’s Frank Ocean’s sexual preference. “Tell her I skate. No Frank Ocean, I’m straight,” Weezy raps in a bit of a spin on the No Homo line popularized by rapper Cam’ron.
Frank Ocean’s name isn’t the only one Lil Wayne drops in the song. The New Orleans rapper also mentions singer/actress Miley Cyrus. “And when get together she be on the Miley Cyrus. Totally eat each other up like Somalians,” he raps.
Frank Ocean’s new video for the song Pyramids, featuring singer John Mayer, dropped Monday. He has not yet commented on Lil Wayne’s line about his sexuality.
A UK music blog, The Line Of Best Fit, announced it’s Idiot Of The Day award goes to Lil Wayne for his “needless” and “off-topic line” about Frank Ocean.
The line also received much criticism from fans on Twitter and other social media sites.
Not everyone hates it, though. Pitchfork said that the song is “extremely raunchy,” but more engaging” than anything on Lil Wayne’s new mixtape, Dedication 4.
