Lil Wayne made his umpteenth appearance on ESPN’s First Take where he addressed a myriad of topics, including the recent suspension of an eighth grade teacher who thought it would be cool to use his lyrics as a teaching aid and an interesting moment which host Cari Champion refered to as “hashtag awkward.”
The only cool points that teacher was received was a yellow slip of chill as the teacher received a three-day suspension for her fandom.
Skip stays up on the frequent rapper guest’s daily news and asked Lil Wayne his thoughts on the situation, one that Wayne was naive to even happening. “Do you think kids can learn anything from your lyrics?” Skip questioned. “Are there any of those lyrics that embarrass you if they were put in front of eight graders in class?”
Wayne immediately counterattacked saying, “I’d never be embarrassed by anything I say because I say it and I mean it. But I don’t think that you should be trying to teach it any way to kids because I don’t record it and say it for kids to listen to it, but they will hear it.”
Mr. Bayless, who is forever the shrewd journalist, didn’t stop there with his wealth of knowledge for Lil Wayne’s career. When Weezy picked Kevin Durant over LeBron James as the league’s current MVP, Skip pondered if his “issues” in the past with some of the Heat’s players had any effect on his opinion.
Those said issues of course, stemmed from Lil Wayne’s claims of having had fornicated under the consent of the king with Chris Bosh’s wife Adrienne before he put a ring on it.
Everybody in the audience–Stephen A. included–could speak in subliminal and Cari Champion downplayed the situation as Weezy leveled off his answer.
Sometimes, if not always, sports talk can be just as entertaining as the games. Hit the play on the clip to see why.
