Lil Wayne Says Drake Gets Hated On Because He’s Light-Skinned

Lil Wayne has shared why he thinks people in Hip Hop “hate on” Drake, and he believes it has to do with the color of his Young Money collaborator’s skin.

The New Orleans legend stopped by The Richard Sherman Podcast on Friday (January 19) to share his thoughts.


“I get that from my upbringing, from being around Birdman,” he began, when Sherman praised his talent-scouting abilities.

When Sherman asked why people hate on Drake, Weezy didn’t hesitate to weigh in. “He red, he light-skinned.”


“That’s just American history,” he continued. “How I know is, because I’m not light-skinned. I hated on all light-skinned dudes in school. So yeah, it’s American history, man.”

Check out the full interview below. The comments about Drake begin at about the 16:15 mark.

Earlier this week, B.G. sent Lil Wayne a message about a potential Hot Boys reunion, telling his former groupmate to “stop playing.”

During an Instagram Live, the New Orleans native — who was released from prison late last year — made it clear he wants the rap group to re-form even though he recently dissed Wayne.


“Say Juvie, there’s people on my line, man, about this Hot Boys reunion,” he said. “Weezy, stop playing, man. It’s a big bag involved, man. Ya heard me?

“I know you super rich. I know you like Taylor Swift outchea. Come on, man. Stop playing, man. Let’s get to this bag.”


B.G.’s plea for a Hot Boys reunion was met with some criticism from fans given his recent comments about Lil Wayne.

One said: “Sir, you can’t diss the man and want him to help you get to a bag. He doesn’t need that bag like you do. Being humble will get you far lol.”


Another joked: “Wayne be on his mind every second of the day and Wayne just thinking bout coochie and drugs.”

B.G. took aim at his former Cash Money labelmate last month on a song with Finesse2Tymes called “Gangstafied.”

“My n-gga Boosie went home and my dawg was steady blowing/ My n-gga Weezy steady touring but he’s bitch and it’s showing/ I’m still a living legend, don’t act like you didn’t know it,” he rapped.

B.G. then attempted to clarify his remarks on Instagram Live where he said: “Y’all don’t understand what the fuck be going on, you know what I’m saying? I tell a n-gga I love him and call him a bitch all in the same sentence. It’s family business, man.


“Shout out to my little brother Weezy. I spoke to my little brother last night. Shout out to shorty, man. Still my little bro. Love my little bro. This shit be complicated.”
