It’s no secret that rappers from around the country have been taking their talents to South Beach, turning Miami into their personal playground. However, longtime resident of Miami-Dade county Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell is taking exception to everyone taking from his city but giving nothing back.
In a letter to the Miami New Times, the legendary Luke took aim at Lil Wayne, Diddy, DJ Khaled and others:
“I’ve got a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money Brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami. I’m tired of seeing these cats using up our beaches, soaking up our sunshine, taking over the nightclubs, and sleeping with our women without investing anything into the community. I want to know when Lil Wayne is going to do more than show up courtside at the American Airlines Arena. Hell, it’s not like he paid for them anyway. You know he got comped.”
“This free loading and mooching of my city has got to stop. There used to be a day when out of town rappers were scared to throw their weight around Miami. It didn’t matter if they were coming from New York or Los Angeles, they knew better than to act like they owned this motherfu**er.”
