  • A friend of mine once said, “Correctly applied heavy effort is greater than hard work.” The family of Emmett Till must have heard that saying before because just days after they said they would pressure Mountain Dew to drop Lil Wayne as a celebrity spokesperson for his insensitive rap lyric referencing Emmett Till, Weezy penned an emotional letter sympathizing for his actions.

    On the remix of Future’s “Karate Chop,” Lil Wayne rapped the line, “Beat the p***y like Emmett Till,” which caused public outrage. The Tills asked for an apology and for the reference to be removed from the song back in February when the track first leaked. However, Lil Wayne kept his mouth shut about the whole thing. Future’s record company, Epic Records, took action by removing the disrespectful reference and issuing an apology to the Till family. Still, Lil Wayne was silent which made people believe he didn’t care one way or another.

    2. Apologie should have been weeks ago ,, when he first spit that crap out of his mouth,, too little to late .
      He SHould not have sold anything on that song, or that album, its just a disgrace. this man needs some serious therapy, or counseling. and plus who can actually look at this man, he is so un-attractive and all these young black, really think he is somebody special. but he just another fool who has never had anything. And they just don’t know how to handle fame or Fortune. bottom line. this man is not a positive person in the music industry.

    3. Yep. Hit em’ in the pocketbook “It has come to my attention”. Hell it came to your attention the day you spewed that venom. But it only occurred to your dog ass to apologize after it came to your attention that your greedy ass might be losing some cash behind your ignorance. Unbelievable. Hope Pepsi boots your real ugly ass.
