Lil' Wayne's Black Lives Matter Comments Cause Controversy: 'I Don't Feel Connected'
Rapper Lil’ Wayne is causing some controversy after an interview with Nightline, which aired on Tuesday (November 1), made his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement known.
“What is it? What do you mean?” the 34-year-old rapper said.”That just sounds weird. I don’t even know why 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 f*cked up reason … I am a young, black, rich motherf*cker. If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf*ckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is. Don’t come at me with that dumb sh*t, ma’am. My life matter, especially to my bitches.”
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as sh*t,” he added. “I’m connected to this flag right fucking here, because I’m connected. I’m a gangbanger now.”
