When it comes to his lyrics Lil Wayne remains creatively brash and largely unapologetic. It’s a stance that doesn’t sit well with the family of civil rights figure Emmett Till, whom Weezy referenced in a lyric on Future’s “Karate Chop (Remix).”
THE LYRIC WENT LIKE THIS…. “Beat The P%%%% up like Emmitt Till….Now for those of you who don’t know, Emmitt till was a 14 year old Boy from Chicago back in 1955 and was brutally tortured and killed for alledgedly “whistling” at a white woman while in Mississippi.
Many think that this was one of the events that contributed to the start of the civil rights movement. These lyrics should of never made the song in my opinion. Emmitt Till is very much a part of Black History and his story should continue to educate the Hip Hop Culture.
The word is the Family of Emmitt Till are goin to try and stick it to Wayne where it hurts… In His Pockets….Mountain Dew will be getting a call soon!
All wayne has to do is apologize………
