Lil Wayne Doesn’t Feel Connected To Black Lives Matter
Lil Wayne is making headlines over his remarks about Black Lives Matter. On last night’s episode of “Nightline”, Wayne explains his feelings on the Black Lives Matter movement. He says that he didn’t like giving incidents surrounding police violence a catch-all name:
That just sounds weird, 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 f*cked up reason.
I am a young black rich motherfucker. If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf*ckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is.
Pointing to the camera man, Wayne continued:
That man white; he filmin’ me. I’m a n*gga.
Growing a bit frustrated with the subjected, he stated,
I don’t know what you mean, man, don’t come at me with that dumb a** sh*t, ma’am. My life matter.
Then, he looked into the camera, smiled, said,
Especially to my b*tches.
When he was asked if he felt connected to Black Lives Matter, he responded:
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. 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.
In the full segment that aired on ABC, he actually removed his mic and walked out of the interview saying,
I ain’t no f*ckin’ politician.
