Rapper Lil Wayne sure caused a lot of buzz when he was asked about Black Lives Matter in a Nightline interview. The long time mega star said he doesn’t believe in the movement.
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” the Louisiana rapper said during the interview.
“If you do, you crazy as shit. You. Not the camera,” Lil Wayne said, pointing to ABC News reporter Linsey Davis. “Feeling connected to something that ain’t got nothing to do with you? If it ain’t got nothing to do with me, I ain’t connected to it.”
“I’m a young, black rich motherf*cker,” the rapper continued. “If that don’t let you know that America understands Black [Lives] Matter these days, I don’t know what it is. Don’t come at me with that dumb sh*t.”
This is quite a statement from the gangster rapper and he’s being targeted for it. Lil Wayne abruptly ended the interview below when challenged on the topic, saying he is not a politician.
Lil Wayne doesn’t support Colin Kaepernick’s decision to protest the National Anthem. In the interview below, he states he has NEVER had to deal with racism, much to the chagrin of the hosts who were clearly taken aback that he wasn’t supporting Kaepernick.
He also highlights that most of his fans are white, showing that racism isn’t something he encounters. Lil Wayne also spoke about how a white police officer saved his life!
The press certainly isn’t happy that Lil Wayne isn’t carrying their banner of division!
