Nicki Minaj Advises Lil Wayne To Use ‘Less Poetry’ On Twitter

Sun, Feb 28, 2010 by

The rapper recently joined the social networking service to much fanfare, quickly amassing more than 172,000 followers.

The prolific MC, however, hasn’t exactly tweeted with the same fury with which he released countless mixtapes. But his sparse messages have been received well, for the most part. They typically feature poetic refrains without much context.

“If we are all here for a reason, I’m just visiting,” he wrote in one message that’s been characteristic of his output.

But a backlash was started by some fans and comedian Lil Duval, who created the topic “#LilWayneDeepTweets.” The tagged posts poke fun at the overly philosophical nature of the rapper’s messages. As a result, Lil Wayne tweeted that if he wasn’t wanted on Twitter he would leave.

Lil Wayne protégé Nicki Minaj, herself a healthy Twitter user, has some advice for the “Lollipop” superstar.

“Less poetry,” she told MTV News from the red carpet of BET’s “Rip the Runway.”

But the female MC urged Wayne not to quit the service, despite the fact that he only has a few days of freedom left; he’s set to begin his one-year jail sentence in New York this week.

“We want to hear what you have to say, Lil Tunechi,” she said, using Wayne‘s Twitter handle.

From the looks of things, it doesn’t appear that Wayne will give up on Twitter just yet.

About 12 hours after tweeting that he would leave, the rapper began sending messages again.

“My problem is that I aim to please, and it seems as if [I] need a higher target,” Wayne wrote. “But for now, ‘Bullseye.’ ”

Via MTV, and what do you all think Weezy should start tweeting more about :?: Let us know in the comments.

    i actually think he should continue the tweets hes doing. I love them, fuck the haters. They just expect him to be like on some mixtape shit 24/7 i enjoy seeing how deep, and real wayne is, music aside. I love his music & i love him, and his tweets. for some reason “lil wayne fans” are so against wayne trying new shit. And it’s a little ridiculous, if you were a real fan you’d support what hes doin’ no matter what. (:

  • Samser

    He needs to start replying to some of his fans and put what he’s doing – such as “recording for tha carter 5″, or “getting ready for a party” ya heard me

    Or even post some of his lyrics

    @cassie

    clean those ears up!!!
    she said she wanted wayne to STOP tweeting about his “poetry”.

  • Dd

    Omareezy don’t be fucking stupid. Read cassie’s comment and at least act like you’re a literate human being. She’s saying it would make more sense for Nicki to encourage the poetry tweets because wayne is a rapper and so is she and rapping is essentially poetry.

  • http://lilwaynehq.com free wayne

    that was funny

  • tweezy

    First off, twitter is the worst fuckin invention ever (besides the Mac Snack Wrap from McDonalds)… and lil wayne doesnt give a shit if ppl dont like it, he wants to express his thoughts.

  • sweetgurl8

    I disagree, I don’t think Wayne should tweet less poetry cause like he said its a “mirror of my thoughts”…….why should he dumb down his tweets for anyone, this aint Lil Waynes Tweets for Dummies.

  • sweetgurl8

    Favorite Lil Wayne Tweets: (#5) “if we are all here for a reason, im just visiting…..but i am here….for now”. (#4) “if love is everywhere, i’ll never end up in the middles of nowhere”. (#3) Love is a road without signs yet we still drive bekuz we kan only imagine whats ahead”. (#2) “welkome to my department store of love, where 1 size fits all”. And my (# 1) favorite, “klumsy me, i’ve fallen for you”………gonna Miss u Weezy F Baby

  • Twainz

    Hi Lil Wayne you are one of the best Artists in the game right now and always. I love listening to your music because you put passion in what you write and I was wondering how much would you charge to perform at my 17 Birthday because it would really mean alot to me even though I am not the richest person. Can you please email me back when you get this message thank you.
