Lil Wayne calls out Eli Manning, further inserting himself into Giants beef

At this point, everyone has heard what Odell Beckham Jr. said about Eli Manning and his Giants teammates in last week's interview with ESPN.

Beckham questioned the Giants' collective heart and vented frustrations about the offense during the ESPN interview. Manning only shrugged about the interview on Monday, remarking "I don't watch Lil' Wayne much", according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano.

With the Giants back in East Rutherford to prepare for a home showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday (8:20 p.m. ET, Fox/NFL Network/Amazon Prime), questions were immediately addressed about the Beckham comments.

"Lil Wayne is serious and I was serious when I said..."

Wayne also seemed particularly hurt by the response of Giants QB Eli Manning, who claimed that he didn't pay attention to the Tha Carter V rapper.

"Man, listen, I got a uncle that was doing time that remembers seeing Eli, Archie, Peyton, Cooper, he remembers seeing them at five in the morning every other morning on the schoolyard way before the students get there, practicing".

"Every time I'm doing an interview about you and somebody is about to... even when I'm in the crib and amongst the homies, every time someone says something bad about you, I be the first one to [defend you]", said Lil Wayne while smoking what appears to be a massive blunt. "I'm cool with you", he added. "But you can listen, if you could".

"I know you're up there in New York and I know a little bit about New York", Wayne continued. I don't care what you watch or what you listen to or nothing like that. Dang! So I ain't going to say anything bad about you now. You still hometown love.

And then, the parting shot: "You probably need to the way you been playing", he continues. At practice on Tuesday afternoon, Lil Wayne was heard playing over the speakers.

And Lil Wayne is more than aware of the jokes and criticisms.

- Frank Isola (@TheFrankIsola) October 7, 2018Lil Wayne should be sitting next to Beckham when OBJ explains the screw up on the punt.

It started when Beckham suggested to ESPN's Josina Anderson during an on-camera sit-down that the now-1-4 Giants lack heart and energy, that he may not be happy in NY and that Manning may or may not be the right guy at quarterback for his team. Frank, I rock with you.
