NBA Star Reacts To Lil Wayne Roc Nation Announcement, Picks Between Jay Z/Weezy For "Best Rapper" Ti
NBA stud Rudy Gay is happy af to see Lil Wayne throw up the Roc for Jay Z. The Roc Nation Sports member has reacted to Weezy F. Baby recently declaring himself a new Roc Nation member.
In a recent interview, Gay congratulated Wayne on the power move but said Jay Z still had an edge on him for the "Best Rapper" title at the Roc.
"Yeah, I didn't see that," Gay said about Wayne declaring his allegiance to Roc Nation. "Oh wow, wow. That's uh, that's dope. Welcome to the company. Am I gonna hit him up for tickets? [laughs] I guess, I guess I can now, right? [Best rapper at Roc Nation?] Ah man, come on now, the boss [Jay Z]. The boss, man. The boss is still number one." (TMZ Sports)
Earlier this month, Wayne sparked headlines after declaring himself R-o-c.
"Is it cool if I just say it? It's the Roc," Wayne said. "You know I'm a member of that team now." After sharing the news, Wayne put up the Roc's diamond hand sign before launching back into his performance. Wayne has been contemplating a deal with Jay Z for years, dating back to the days of Roc-A-Fella Records. XXL has reached out to Roc Nation for comment. (XXL Mag)

Back in January, Wayne hinted at something stirring with the Jigga Man.
During his appearance at the first "LIV on Sunday's" of 2017, Tunechi was spotted jamming out to his "Burn" freestyle off Dedication 4 (I forgot how dope this song is) and throwing up the ROC sign. Weezy also got on the mic to shout "when you see me it's Y-M-R-O-C" and "triangle", which I would presume is for the ROC hand sign. (Lil Wayne HQ)
Last year, reports surfaced about Cash Money boss Birdman having issues with Wayne publicly shouting out Jay.
Sources close to the situation tell us ... lawyers for the 2 camps were close to reaching a deal - one meeting away, in fact - when Wayne publicly dissed Birdman by changing the lyrics in "I'm Me" from a Cash Money shout-out to a Jay Z shout-out. We're told Birdman has his own beef with Jay, which made Wayne's diss sting even more. Lil Wayne's "Suck my d***!" at that same show didn't help either - so he pulled the plug on negotiations. (TMZ)
