Lil Wayne is a lot of things — rapper, skater, author — however, the word “activist” probably won’t be making it to his resume any time soon.
The Young Money CEO sat down with ABC’s Nightline and discussed a myriad of topics, but it was his take on Black Lives Matter that had people scratching their heads.
When asked for his thoughts on the movement, Wayne responded, “What is it? What do you mean? That just sounds weird. I don’t know, that you put a name on it…It’s not a name, it’s not, ‘whatever whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f*cked up reason.” But that wasn’t all. The “Lollipop” rapper also claimed that because he is “rich” that proves America cares about Black people. “I am a young, Black rich motherf*cker. If that don’t let you know that America understand Black motherf*ckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is … I don’t know what you mean, ma’am. Don’t come at me with that dumb sh*t, ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my b*tches.” Sigh.
It’s worth noting that Weezy seems a bit out of sorts during the interview, but we can’t put our finger on why. Check out the Nightline interview below to see why Wayne says he doesn’t “feel connected” to BLM and let us know your thoughts. Also, watch our interview with Mr. Carter where he talks about his time in prison and his current relationship with Birdman … let’s just say, he doesn’t “feel connected” to him either.
From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album
Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.
Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.
“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!
But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.
Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?
