Lil’ Wayne Says Black Lives Matter Ain’t Got Nothin’ To Do With Him [Video]


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…


Billboard reports:

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.”
