Lil Wayne recently spoke about his relationship with the paparazzi and how they bring their A-game when he goes into the Los Angeles area. Speaking to Paris Hilton, who is pretty familar with the paps herself, that he tries to avoid the aggressive photo takers.
"[I avoid them] because I don't live in L.A., there's not a lot of that. But when I've gone to L.A. and been in the hotel or wherever, I've seen how serious the paparazzi is out there-like, they park across the street from the hotel and as soon as you walk out the front door, they jump out and start snapping. I live in Miami, so I really don't have to deal with that on the same level. The only time I ever really witnessed some crazy paparazzi was during my court experiences. Every time I rode up to court, as soon as I jumped out of the truck, they were there to snap, and all in our way to where we couldn't walk. It's nowhere near like that around here. But maybe I'm just not that caliber of person that they want to take pictures of me like that. [laughs]" (Interview Magazine)
