Lil Wayne goes back to his roots in the powerful video for “God Bless Amerika,” a cut off his album I Am Not a Human Being II. During his New Orleans homecoming, Weezy shows some of the real faces from his neighborhood of Hollygrove and destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina, with cameos from Birdman and Mack Maine. The Eif Rivera-directed clip sparked controversy after Wayne was accused of “trampling” the American flag.
He shot down the reports writing, “It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground.”
