It's the number #1 question on everybody's minds: DID Lil Wayne and DJ Stevie J really kiss onstage -- on the mouth?! I don't know, but I'm pretty sure I do know what Lil Wayne would say if you asked him directly: "I don't recall." Ha! He's a slippery fellow, that Lil Wayne. Anyway. The rumor started, as so many do, with a viral video. Featuring footage that seems to show Hip-Hop DJ Stevie J giving Weezy a big wet one during a club appearance in Miami.
Now, perhaps you're wondering what all the fuss is about -- so what if two male rappers kissed onstage? After all, remember when Lil Wayne and Cash Money Records head Birdman were photographed kissing each other on the lips? (I know, who can forget?!) Birdman totally explained the gesture -- it was just a "mafia kiss."
In fact, I believe his exact words were:
That's my son, ya heard me. If he was right here, I'd kiss him again. I kiss my daughter, my other son, I mean, you have children? Well, if you did you'd understand what I meant with it. I just think people took that too far man. That's my son. I'll do it again tomorrow, I'll kill for him. Ride and die for him.
(Note: Lil Wayne is not actually Birdman's son.)
So, there you have it. Same deal with Lil Wayne and DJ Stevie J, I would assume. Or, who knows, maybe they're romantically involved. Who cares?! Perhaps YouTube commenter Kimberly Jones made the best "so what if they kissed" argument:
ok so why can't gay people be in hip hop? damn can't people who love hip hop have variety in it? Can't gay people be successful in hip hop the same way straight people are? Can't gay people support their family like these "straight" people are doing in hip hop? This is whats wrong with society today....afraid of something different
Agreed. Of course, we're still left to wonder ... who IS Lil Wayne? Seeking further insight, I turned to his lyrics -- for the song "We Be Steady Mobbin'" (because, you know, the mafia thing). And wouldn't you know it? It's just like Weezy says:
Yeah, and f*ck these bitches I swear I care about everything b-but these bitches I-I don't care, I, so what? These bitches
And there you have it.
Do you think Lil Wayne and DJ Stevie J kissed onstage?
