Something weird has gotten into Lil Wayne.
The rapper, who once based a whole album around his experiences as a Black person in America following Hurricane Katrina, has made it obvious that he wants to remove himself from the narrative of Black Lives Matter, saying he doesn’t feel “connected to the movement” during a recent interview.
T.I. ripped the Young Money CEO on social media, writing, “I don’t know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You’re disrespecting yourself, bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy.”
Wayne’s daughter, Reginae, commented under Tip’s post about her dad: “You should’ve copied and pasted this and sent it to him thru via text but u wanna seek for attention.”
Weezy finally took to social media to comment on the backlash he’s been receiving:
Although Wayne issued a pseudo apology for his Nightline interview, fans and colleagues are not letting his controversial comments go anytime soon.
