Lil Wayne has a lot to say about the Giants these days.

The rapper appeared alongside Odell Beckham in a wide-ranging interview with ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Beckham questioned the Giants' collective heart and vented frustrations about the offense during the ESPN interview.

"How come we can't throw the ball for more than 20 yards? How come we don't attempt or try to throw the ball for more than 20 yards?" Beckham said. "Those are questions that we have to figure out, but for now I would say it's our heart, it's our energy. It's what we bring when we line up before the game, all of that. It counts."

When Manning was asked about Beckham's comments he responded:

“I don’t watch Lil Wayne much, so I missed a lot of him."

The rapper took to Instagram to fire back at the Giants' quarterback and reporter Frank Isola.

At first, Lil Wayne appeared to praise Manning.

"Eli, man, every time I'm doing an interview about you, it doesn't have to be an interview, even in the crib amongst the homies, every time somebody badmouths you -- you can ask my homie Skip Bayless. The first thing I'm going to say is: 'Listen, I've got an uncle who was doing time that remembers seeing Eli, Archie, Peyton, Cooper at five in the morning every other morning at the schoolyard way before the students get there practicing.’

“I'm the first one to back you up and be like: ‘He got two rings before his brother.’ Here you are talking about how you don't watch Lil Wayne much. That's fine. I'm cool with you. I don't care what you watch or what you listen to or nothing like that. But hometown love. You don't have to do me like that," he said. “I didn't say anything bad about you, man. Dang! So I ain't going to say anything bad about you now. You still hometown love. I still (expletive) with you Eli. It's all good.”

Lil Wayne then took a shot at Manning, suggesting that Eli listen to his latest album: 'Tha Carter V' to improve his performances.

"You probably need to the way you been playing -- you probably need to bang some 'Carter V' before the game," he said. "Just a consideration."

In a sign that the beef is dying down, the Giants played Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter II' during Tuesday's practice.

During the Instagram video, Lil Wayne also took time to respond to Isola after the reporter stated that there was no point for the rapper to be in the ESPN interview.

“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," he responded. "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.”
