He responded to Isola: “I’ve been hearing things like, if (Odell) wants to be taken seriously, why would he do an interview with Lil Wayne sitting next to him? … The person that said that is a reporter, journalist from New York by the name of Frank Isola. Frank, I rock with you. I actually like you, when you come on TV, I like your heavy New York, Italian whatever accent, I like the way you do your thing, you say what you want to say, you get your point across, but you mentioned my name, my name came out your mouth this time. When that happens, I’m going to fire back at you. … I don’t know much about you though. Fact is, you don’t know much about me. With that said, keep my name out your mouth.”

And left additional thoughts for Manning: “To Eli … every time somebody bad mouths you, I’ll be the first one to say — you can ask Skip Bayless, that’s my homie, shoutout Skip — is ‘man listen, I got an uncle that was doing time that remembered 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.’ I’m the first one to back you up … and here you talk about you don’t watch Lil Wayne much. That’s fine, that’s fine. I’m cool with you, I don’t care what you watch or listen to. But you know, this is hometown love, man. You ain’t gotta do me like that. I didn’t say anything bad about you.”

He continued by telling Eli that he should listen to Tha Carter V and let Isola know his interview was edited, so he wasn’t a “yes man” to Beckham.
