Lil Wayne really stuck his foot in his mouth this time.
Lil Wayne is being criticized from every corner after claiming he has nothing to do with the Black Lives Matter movement because he’s rich and famous. He tried to claim afterwards that he was just mad at the network for asking inappropriate questions about his daughter, but the comments were way off base. He unsuccessfully tried to get the interview scrapped – probably because he realized what he’d done – with no success.
Now fellow rapper T.I. has put his two cents in, saying “U TRIPPING!!!! I don’t know what you goin thru, or what you are attempting to avoid but this … is absolutely unacceptable!” in a post. He continued, “You’re disrespecting yourself, bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy.”
T.I. also added that “You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership,” he continued in his Instagram post. “Bro if you don’t stand for something out here, all the money, jewelry, cars, mansions bandannas & hit records don’t mean (anything)!”
“Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted, captured & slaughtered out here daily!!!” he added. “You have to get outta that bubble that you’ve been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what’s going on around US!!!”
In case you missed it, here’s the interview:
