Lil Wayne Coaches Youth Basketball Game

Lil Wayne and Bow Wow

Lil Wayne took to the court to mentor seventh and eighth grade students at the Celebrity Court of Dreams charity game at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami over the weekend. The Young Money chief coached the YMCMB All Stars as they faced off against the South Beach AllStars amateur athletic union team.

Halfway through the game, he switched sides and joined the kids on their team. Bow Wow even showed up and helped lead the South Beach All Stars to a one-point win over YMCMB.

“Whatever dream you have, don’t quit,” Coach Carter told his young fans. “Don’t let anyone try and stop you.”

    gtfo outta here. I love Lil Wayne, but he’s not even a rap legend yet. Eminem, Jay-Z, 2pac, Nas and Biggie are by far better rappers and all legends. Lil Wayne will never be named over those artists in a any list of greatest rappers of all time. Eminem, Jay-Z, Tupac and Biggie are on the Rolling Stone and Vh1 greatest artists of all time list. Lil Wayne is no where to be found.

    Back in the early 90′s Lebron James and Kobe Bryant weren’t on any greatest basketball players of all time list either. Time doesn’t just arbitrarily stop and the history books close forever. Lil Wayne is the defining rapper of his generation, he’ll have his place in history with all the rest.

    @Huh, your point makes no sense as Lil Wayne has been on the map for more than ten years and only really got worldwide recognition in 2008 whilst Jay-Z and Eminem because sensations from their first albums and were highly credited by official reviews and fans. Also back in the early 90′s Lebron and Kobe were not even playing big league so you sound silly for the point its the same like saying Weezy wasn’t big cause he hadn’t been signed when the fact is he has been in the game for a long time and is now shining

    Its really sad how you people are talking sh$t about other rappers instead of saying its nice to see a rapper inspire our youth. If all rappers did this we might not be losing our brothers to violence and prison. Kay Z is my fab rapper, but Wayne been rapping just as long as Jay. He started @ 11yrs old and I do think he has crossed over to one of our greatest. He might not have the status Jay Z has, but even Jay has praised Lil Wayne. Just try to look @ the positive instead of using a youth basketball game to down the same rappers all kids look up to.
