“Flat out: I don’t like New York,” is how Lil’ Wayne summed up his dislike for the Big Apple in an interview with MTV News’ Rob Markman. While out in Las Vegas for the annual Magic Convention to promote TRUKFIT and his new sneaker with Supra, Weezy spoke on the recent bad luck he’s encountered in NYC. If you remember, he was arrested for a gun charge in 2007 following a concert in Manhattan. The incident lead to him serving a year in jail back in 2010. More recently, the bad luck continued as Wayne made news after his decision to pull headliner Nicki Minaj from Summer Jam 2012 back in June. The face of Young Money did touch on the good time he had during the make-up show last week that included guests Cam’Ron, Drake, and Foxy Brown.

“You’re not supposed to leave it at, ‘Everything happens for a reason,’ ” Wayne said of how the failed SJ set turned into a blessing in disguise. “I believe everything happens for a reason and then you make the most of that reason. I think we made the most of it last week.”
