Reason #2: Lil Wayne just allowed a major corporation to re-write a part of his legacy.
Getting an endorsement deal is supposed to be a good thing for your career. In a way, it signifies the fact that you've "made it" and that your name is so big that a company can use it to sell products. So Wayne teaming up with Mountain Dew should have been a nice addition to his resume. Instead, it'll now go down as one of the biggest blemishes on his entire career. That's not to say that this recent incident will define his entire career. We refuse to be a prisoner of the moment. But Wayne will have to work hard to make people forget about it. And, even then, they may forgive him for it but they won't totally forget it.
