Is Lil Wayne Tweeting A Golf Star A Sign That Young Money Sports Is Growing?

Lil Wayne surprised fans that did not realize he was interested in the Augusta Masters taking place in Augusta, Georgia until he tweeted a congratulatory message to Tom Watson. However, could it be possible that Lil Wayne is about to add another sports celebrity to his revamped Young Money Sports agency?

Despite this, Lil Wayne continues to place a constant importance on making new music in 2016, and it can be observed that Lil Wayne is doing this because he believes that being the "greatest rapper alive" is a priority that one must ensure with certain standards.

Outside of his own professional goals, Lil Wayne also feels that making new music is important for his fans, and the needs of his fans was the theme of his recent Dedication Tour.

During the tour, Lil Wayne made a point of visiting smaller towns and venues in order to reach fans that could not make the journey to larger cities to see his concerts.

Multiple reviews from his tour stated Lil Wayne put his heart and soul into the Dedication Tour, and now there is a list compiled by UpRoxx that highlights his best songs from that concert series.

Interestingly, one of the things that 2 Chainz is talking about in his recent interview in April pertains to Lil Wayne and the unspoken rivalry between them.

According to Radio, 2 Chainz said in an interview that recording with Lil Wayne really challenged 2 Chainz to up his game as a rapper, and he stated the following about Weezy's talent.

"This process [of recording Collegrove with Lil Wayne] was probably one of the best rap processes that I've ever been a part of. Straight up."
Despite this, Lil Wayne might argue that no one is truly interested in being competitive in today's rap game. According to an April 4 report from Vibe, Lil Wayne stated the following.
"I'm part of a different culture, a different wave of music… At that time, it was all about being the best. I mean, I'm quoted for saying I'm the best rapper alive. Nowadays, nobody… they ain't trying to be the best rapper, or the best at anything. They're just trying to be them and do what the other people say is OK. I'm not a part of that culture and I'm d*** sure happy I'm not."
According to Rolling Stone, 2 Chainz will be moving on from Lil Wayne and Collegrove to do solo work in 2016 and talked about how he will "unlock his heart" with his new LP, Personal.
Regardless, as Lil Wayne is tweeting about golf and talking music, he is also being looked at by some celebrities as being thwarted by the Birdman drama in his life, and they want to see an end to it.

For example, Vince Staples was recently quoted by XXL Mag about the situation with Birdman and Lil Wayne and he stated on April 6, "Birdman give [Lil Wayne] his money, please."

Nevertheless, at the end of the day, Lil Wayne might be looking to spend more time relaxing with a golf club in his hand while he waits for Birdman to help him settle up his debts.

According to Yahoo Sports, Lil Wayne tweeted golf master Tom Watson on April 9 that he was giving him a standing ovation for his appearance at the Augusta Masters. Tom Watson tweeted back that he planned to return the ovation at one of Lil Wayne's shows.

Was this Twitter exchange between two of "the greatest" of their fields a friendly hello between elites … or a sign of an upcoming business handshake between Lil Wayne and Tom Watson?

On the other hand, Lil Wayne is known to tweet compliments to other athletes such as hockey star Alex Ovechkin and Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.

Alternatively, Lil Wayne could be more about tweeting for sports business endeavors because he recently re-started a sports management company called Young Money Sports, as previously reported by The Inquisitr. The first and only athlete Lil Wayne has signed so far is soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Spin.

Could tweeting Tom Watson, a now retired athlete, be a sign that Lil Wayne may soon be branching out into golf talent management with this golf superstar?

If Lil Wayne does become a successful musician that starts a talent management agency with a golf angle, he will not be the first. For example, Niall Horan of the band One Direction is currently at the Augusta Golf Masters and also started a golf talent management company earlier in 2016.
