Lil Wayne Says It’s Amazing What Has Been Done For Haiti & What Hasn’t Been Done For N.O.


Lil Wayne was vocal about how humbled and honored he was to be taking over folk icon Bob Dylan’s part on Monday night’s remake of “We Are the World.” But at the end of his soft-spoken comments to reporters during the recording session, the New Orleans-bred rapper added one more thought that instantly sent a buzz through the room.

“I think it’s amazing what’s been done for Haiti,” Wayne said, gazing out at the assembled reporters and cameramen in a tent just outside the Jim Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood as he stepped off a stool and lowered the microphone. Then, raising the mic to his iced-out grill once more, he added, “But I also think it’s amazing what hasn’t been done for New Orleans.”

And with that, he walked out without taking any further questions.

Lil Wayne To Perform In Haiti Benefit Concert

They will join a host of hip-hop acts including Pharrell Williams, Chris Brown and Queen Latifah at the Black Entertainment TV (BET) two hour event ‘SOS Saving OurSelves – Help for Haiti‘, which will be broadcast live from Miami on February 5. The event will air on US TV channels MTV, VH1, BET and Centric at 8pm EST.

The group, which featured the rapper, his Haitian cousin Pras Michel and Lauryn Hill, split up in 1997. He told BBC Radio 1Xtra: “Everyone is doing different relief and when the time is right, the vibe is right, The Fugees should definitely contribute a single to go into Yele Haiti (Wyclef Jean’s charity). I think it would raise a lot of money.” The rapper helped actor George Clooney organise the previous ‘Hope For Haiti Now’ telethon and gig, which took place earlier this month. It has so far raised $66m (£42.1m), reports BBC News.
