Lil Wayne has no more love for the Big Apple. The platinum rapper has vowed to never set foot on a New York stage again after his recent incarceration.
Following his release from jail in November, Weezy made appearances on “NBC’s New Years Eve with Carson Daly” and “SNL,” both taped in New York City, but he has no plans to perform in concert there. “They’d have to give me U2 money,” he told Rolling Stone.
Weezy’s feelings stem from his 2007 arrest in the city for attempted criminal possession of a weapon, for which he served eight months on Rikers Island.
Wayne wants to get far away from the City That Never Sleeps, eyeing vacations in Santorini, Hawaii, or the Napa Valley. “Your phone doesn’t work,” he said of the Northern California locale that came recommended by Drake. “I heard it’s a very relaxing place.”
