    @UR2UNNY, He’s appealing to a diverse crowd sweety. we all love black women but picking somebody who is inbetween black and white appeals more to everybody.

    UR2UNNY Reply:

    @2w, yeah that might be true but he NEVER uses a dark skinned girl…he even said in a song that a dark skinned girl looks better red..meaning a dark skinned girl looks better light skinned so i dont think he’s been trying to appeal to a larger crowd.

    This video touched me for some reason, I had chills down my spine. I applaud Wayne for sending this positive message out. (And while I’m applauding Wayne, I should also mention Marsha Ambrosious for tackling aids in her new video, keep spreading positivity.)

  16. Alex!

    let it be known: there are PLENTLY of studies that show that MOST of the women/men who are involved in the sex industry have been victims of sexual abuse……. & if he REALLY believed what this video was showing he wouldn’t support strippers by going to the strip club and giving them money. Broken women turn to that type of job b|c men like him provide an incentive. If there was no incentive, there wouldn’t be a bunch of broken women disrespecting not only themselves, but disrespecting God too :(
    it’s really sad. . . never ending cycle.

    The last line was not bad at all. The first half she seen her mom in a bad relationship so she thought that was how it was suppose to be, then the secound half she seen her mom married for love with lead her on a better path. Corny yes but it did fit.

  35. Tasha

    oh my gosh this video is so sad and the concept is making me cry. do some off yall know that some kids have to go through that stuff and they turn their life around because of what actions their parents took? its just so sad. some people have to go through that and end up like that too. if you guys are laughing at the video and picking at it you shouldnt be because that actually happens in real life and its not okay. this shows weezy’s serious side and i love it #TeamWeezy #TeamTunechi forever :)

    Nice to see him tackle something deeper than the usual. I can’t bare to listen to the song, it’s too repetetive and simple for my liking. The concept was alright, though.
    They could’ve left that last line out, where the girl thanked her friend for having her back and ‘teaching her how to love’. I thought that was a little corny.
