Lil Wayne Feels "Unwelcome, Unwanted" By Oklahoma City Thunder After Ticket "Snub"

by at . Comments

After the Oklahoma City Thunder denied Lil Wayne entry to Game 3 of the NBA's Western Conference Finals the other night, the rapper was left out in the cold.

And reeling emotionally. Despite the seemingly fair and straightforward reason for his denial - he had no ticket - he says he feels "unwelcome and unwanted."

The rapper said two Thunder players - Kevin Durant and James Harden - reached out to offer him tickets to last night's Game 4, but "that's not the point."

'That's the players stepping up but of course the players aren't white," Weezy lamented.

Lil Wayne, Gun

"I don't want to be sitting there next to a (person) that's like 'I don't want this (guy) sitting next to me.' (Forget) you ... I'm in Forbes,'' he laughed.

Lil Wayne Tweeted on Thursday night that he had been ''denied by the team to be in their arena.'' The team responded by saying the game was sold out.

But the Grammy-winner described a more complicated scenario later.

He said he typically procures tickets for such games ''from this guy named Mike'' who had requested special security, parking and entrance for LW.

According to Mike, whoever the heck that is, the team responded that they would only sell the courtside seats he requested for Mike's personal use.

In other words, no Lil Wayne. Allegedly. Anyone actually believe that?

In any case, Lil Wayne says he feels welcome at other arenas, including Miami, and likes being able to energize players - many of whom are fans of his music.

But in Oklahoma City, he said that while ''the players want me there and I respect that, I don't want to feel - I'm going to still feel unwanted. Unwelcome.''

Thunder star Kevin Durant is determined to change that, saying:

''We'd have loved to have him here in Oklahoma City. We'd have welcomed him with open arms. Hopefully, next time he can come and enjoy a game.''

''It was just a misunderstanding. We were sold out of tickets, I heard, and we didn't come through,'' Durant said. ''He knows a few of us on the team."

"We offered him tickets to tonight but he had to do something. He had something to do, but I'm sure if his schedule was free, he would have came tonight."

"We're still inviting him to games - if not this year, next year."

The rapper says that while his manager is encouraging a boycott of the city, ''I never say never.'' The door is open, Weezy. Just call a few days ahead.

this article makes me sick to my stomach!! I am a white male 46 and believe it or not I love listening to hip hop, r and b, rap ect. and until about 3 minutes ago, Lil Wayne (BITCH) is my favorite. Nothing is more discusting than someone pulling the race card over something like this. Looks like I'm gonna have to find a new rapper to be my favorite. Gonna be kinda hard though, the little fu**er has got his talented a^* in a little bit of everything! Except OCT games!!

@ Your MoM

maybe try some other rappers like tupac, biggie, nas. lil waynes music is shit and he's a dumbs


You know something is wrong with Oklahoma's economics if you don't see one face of color in the lower levels sad but true and don't give me that blacks are lazy or on public asst. when the percentages on aide don't support that claim lets just be honest can we ?


LOL @ Forbes. No one cares Lil Brain. Obnoxious nobody who happens to look like crapola. Dude, you're ugly!


Everybody talkin shit about Lil Wayne saying that and he's wrong for it. But you're just as wrong for saying Oklahoma doesn't want his kind and he needs to go back to the hood. I'll have you know I am black and the things he's talking about only a black person would understand. I'm not racist all my family is mixed up...but if he didn't have a ticket that's the thing not getting on his level and saying racist shit like that. Has anyone ever thought about all the things you can get for being Hispanic, native American, even Asian for college and they don't have anything for being black or African American? No there isn't maybe if people would get that then maybe we would have a little more respect towards the Caucasian race. But until then, there will always be a hostility bound right there. Just saying...


lil wayne is a disgusting white-hating racist. this country doesnt need these ungratful black people. we need this country to get back to its glory days, before ghetto thug life was the norm.


Really? Seriously? You should be ashamed of your self - Forbes or no Forbes. People like you keep adding fuel to the fire for real racists. If the truth be said, it' sounds like you are a racist yourself - "hatred or intolerance of another race or other races."
GROW UP, stop 'hating' and pulling the 'race' card everytime you don't get your way. How immature. Oh, and one more thing... please DON'T come to OKC. We don't want your kind (and I DON'T mean black people) in our great city.


just another example of a pampered star, who in this case happens to be black, expecting the red carpet rolled out, and everyone to bend over backwards to appease him. if I were from okc I would say good riddance to bad rubbish, and tell him not to let the border hit him in the ass on his way out.


They were white? Seriously? Thats how you are gonna spin it? You werent let in because your spolied lil ass didnt have a ticket! If you were white, you still didnt have a ticket! Stop putting everything on race you brat! Dont try to play "poor me wasnt let in cuz im black" grow up! Sooooo not a fan! Never had a prob with him before, but now i seriously do!


This "Lil Wayne" controversy is a mystery to me. I know who the Okc Thunder are, but I don't know who is Lil Wayne is or why he thinks he is so very special as to be entitled to a free courtside (or other) free ticket just because "who he is." What an egotist. Heck, I'm a Thunder fan but can't go to the games because my COPD prevents that. Lil Wayne must really be something special, even if very few have a clue as to why that is. I certainly don't.
