Lil Wayne is a cooning knob jockey. I can’t quite work out if it’s the drugs or the drugs, but that young man is gone. Now that we’ve got that out the way, let’s tell the story, shall we? Last week, the rapper ruffled a lot of feathers when he said he didn’t connect with the Black Lives Matter movement, or indeed believe that there was any tension that Black people need fear. This house negro had his head so far up the colonial masters’ behind that he claimed that the fact that a white man was holding the camera filming him, a Black man, was proof positive that Black lives did, in fact, matter. Because idiot.
If you haven’t yet had your dinner and are feeling up to it, you can watch the foolishness here. I certainly won’t offend your sensibilities by posting it. This deluded over-hyped walking notebook here. Ugh.
T.I. Bringing That #BlackManMagic!
But all of my anger was abated when T.I. stepped into the ring. People, T.I. got me in my feelings! Just the eloquence, the intelligence, the balance, and the restrained rage emanating off the page! Language has always been my mistress, and a man who can wield its power with grace has always been able to hold me spellbound. In a few sentences, T.I. got Lil Wayne all the way together: from initial courtesies, to dealing with the matter at hand, to outright drawing of the lines. It was poetry and it was flawless.
Read the full statement here. Thank you, T.I. You are the real MVP!
This is my son & daughter showing me this for the first time & asking me what you mean? I’m at a complete loss of words here. Wayne I’ve known you over a decade. Our daughters grew up together practically. Reginae’ spent countless times at my house with Niq-Niq when you were in prison & you extended my daughter the same courtesy when I was in the same position.Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still nigga U TRIPPING!!!! I don’t know what you goin thru, or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You’re disrespecting yourself,bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy. You have children (including mines prior to now) that have looked up to you.You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership. Bro if you don’t stand for something out here,all the money, jewelry, cars, mansions bandannas & hit records don’t mean shit!!!! Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted,captured & slaughtered out here daily!!! 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!!!I’m always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development,but u MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin’ you out here doin. You looking like somebody who has something to gain or lose by pretending like it’s not as bad as BLM making it seem & you’re not aware of an issue that needs to be addressed.That’s what would be considered “Uncle Tom Shit”…. I know U, YOURE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!! I’ve been proud to call myself a fan & a friend of Lil Wayne, but if that must end in order to stand up for those who can’t do it for themselves…So be it. If you’re not prepared for a question in an interview, say No Comment Bro. But stop embarrassing yourself & everyone out here who’s been supporting you. There is no middle ground. Oppression knows no neutral party, either you’re part of the oppressed,or you with the oppressor. There is no such thing as oppression not affecting you. It’s #USorELSE out here.
