Discussion: Has Lil Wayne Gone Too Far?



Lil Wayne has come under fire recently for his controversial lyrics in the remix to Future's "Karate Chop".  In the song near 3:05, Wayne says he is going to "Beat the pussy up like Emmet Till".

Emmet Till was a 14 year old boy who was taken from his home and brutally beaten and murdered after he allegedly flirted with a white woman.  Since his passing, he has become a prominent figure from the civil rights movement.

Upon the backlash from media and Till's family, Epic Records has issued an apology stating they had not heard the lyrics before it leaked and have since pulled the song and commercially re-released a censored version.  Wayne himself has not made any statements or apologies in regards to the matter.

burn_a_miracle 20th-Feb-2013 04:08 am (UTC)
He has a lot of lyrics that talk about him being the shit and using toilet metaphors. Its weird.
gyuri 20th-Feb-2013 03:41 am (UTC)

The answer is yes. Dwayne and his set are the motherfucking worst.

He's an annoying little drugged out troll.
jason350 20th-Feb-2013 03:42 am (UTC)
Disgusting fucking human being.
bestillmyxheart 20th-Feb-2013 03:42 am (UTC)
ugh, scum of the earth.
vehiclesshockme 20th-Feb-2013 03:42 am (UTC)
That is really fucked up. Christ. :\

Incidentally I was just watching a documentary about Till the other day.
derbysinner 20th-Feb-2013 06:55 am (UTC)
I watched that documentary and really really felt gross about Mississippi being a part of the United States. His mother broke my heart, I can't imagine living through what she and his family lived through.

I do not understand how that troll would think that line was supposed to entice a chick to get naked, could there be anything less sexy than a teenage boy beaten to death by racist shitbags?
thetxbelle 20th-Feb-2013 10:47 am (UTC)
I can't believe some people would vote that he didn't go too far!
bodylikemind 20th-Feb-2013 03:43 am (UTC)
also future always sounds like he's in pain why do people like him
devochkazhenya 20th-Feb-2013 03:47 am (UTC)
i don't know at all. future's voice is awful, he sounds like he's sobbing whilst having whooping cough
amore 20th-Feb-2013 04:14 am (UTC)
there was a good couple months where i heard future all day every day at work so he really grew on me lol
eccentricvibe 20th-Feb-2013 04:21 am (UTC)
I don't understand why people like him either. His voice is irritating.
cageyb 20th-Feb-2013 04:29 am (UTC)
I know a lot of critics and people I respect who rep for him and ngl some of the beats and production they give him are hot but his voice is insufferable, so idgi.
xzackb 20th-Feb-2013 03:43 am (UTC)
lil wayne's entire existence in the music industry has gone too far imo
inhibiting 20th-Feb-2013 03:43 am (UTC)
Wonder how he would feel if that was his son. Disgusting!
ukwons 20th-Feb-2013 03:43 am (UTC)
