Lil Wayne Denounces Black Lives Matter

  /  11.02.2016

Lil Wayne is at the center of controversy once again. After saying there’s “no such thing as racism” last month, the New Orleans rapper is under fire for new comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.

During a six-minute “Nightline” segment that featured three years of rare reporting access, Weezy was asked about his thoughts on BLM. After first sounding befuddled by the movement, he explained his confusion.

“That just sounds weird,” he said. “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 fucked up reason.

“I am a young black rich [expletive],” he continued. “If that don’t let you know that America understand black [expletive] matter these days, I don’t know what it is. That man white. He filmin’ me. I’m a ni**a. I don’t know what you mean. Don’t come at me with that dumb shit, ma’am. My life matter, especially to my [expletive].”

It didn’t end there, when asked if he felt connected to BLM, he implied that those who do are “crazy as shit.”

“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” he said. “If you do, you crazy as shit. You, not the camera, you. Feeling connected to something that ain’t got nothin’ to do with you? If it ain’t got nothin’ to do with me, I ain’t connected to it.”

Then, he pulled out a red bandana. “I’m a gangbanger, ma’am,” he explained. “I’m connected.”

According to “Nightline,” Tunechi “ended the interview angrily,” walking off while saying he “ain’t no politician.”
