In a recent interview with ABC’s Nightline, Lil’ Wayne had a lot but little to say about the Black Lives Matter movement. Wayne goes onto say that he does not feel a connection at all to the movement, and it has nothing to do with him because he is rich.
How quickly we forget…
Lil Wayne’s social media channels should run hot after his appearance on ABC’s “Nightline” in the early hours.
The Grammy-winning hip-hop artist was dismissive when “Nightline” reporter Lindsey Davis asked his thoughts on social issues.
In a preview of the interview, Davis addressed the Black Lives Matter movement, to which Wayne responds: “What is it? What does it mean?”
And when asked if he felt drawn to the movement, he answers: “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me.”
The rapper goes on to explain, “I’m a young black rich mother****er. If that don’t let you know that America understand.”
Wayne has faced some backlash in recent months for his controversial opinions. In August, he led the Weezyana Festival crowd in a Black Lives Matter chant, but the following month told Fox Sports 1’s Undisputed that there was “no such thing as racism.”
