I'm a big fan of Lil Wayne. I was with him before he became good (pre-Carter days) and totally support his placement atop the hip hop perch but Mr. Weezy F., I can't support you on this. What the hell are you doing wearing a $1 million diamond studded Beats by Dre headphones at a basketball game?
The headphones Lil Wayne are wearing are very likely the same pair LMFAO wore at the Super Bowl which were made with 114 carats of diamond by Graff Diamonds and there are just so many things wrong with this abomination I don't know where to begin. Yeah, I get it, I get it, he's weird. He's an alien. Or a Martian, whatever. Still, it shouldn't excuse him from insane behavior! Let's figure out what you did wrongsies Weezy.
- Places where diamonds are great: On earrings. On necklaces. On bracelets. On big ass chains. On rings. On tiaras. On most jewelry. On most body jewelry. In jewelry boxes. In safe deposit boxes. Places where they're not great? On headphones. And in your butt.
- Places where it's acceptable to wear headphones: Walking around. On the train. On a plane. At work. At home. At the gym. Places where headphones aren't acceptable? Courtside at an entertaining basketball game.
- Places where it's okay to wear Beats by Dre headphones: None. Not with these much better headphones around.
So Mr. Carter, by wearing your diamond studded Beats by Dre headphones at the NBA All Star Game yesterday, you broke three of the golden rules of diamond wearing, headphone using life. Tsk, tsk.
See Lil Wayne, if you wore diamond studded Grados at an unentertaining basketball game, I wouldn't be mad at you. They're open-back! They sound fantastic! Likewise, if you wore regular Beats by Dre headphones to the NBA All Star Game, I wouldn't be mad either! You have to support your fellow hip hop artists. All good. But what you have on your head is a million dollar mistake. A flashing ring o' bling of rip off cheap taste.
SI mean, it's so ridiculous even your rapper BFF Drake had to look at you funny.
