Lil Wayne says the Black Lives Matter movement has nothing to do with him.
Lil Wayne appeared on ABC’s Nightline last night and made some controversial comments. When asked about the Black Lives Matter movement, the rapper not only distanced himself from it but later stormed out of the interview.
Just a few months ago, Wayne said there was “no such thing as racism.” In this recent interview he went even further with his outrageous comments. When asked his thoughts on Black Lives Matter his views on were immediately obvious. “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 fucked up reason.”
He continued by expressing his conceited view of the movement. “I am a young black rich motherfucker. If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherfuckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is.” Showing again his lack of understanding for the movement, he added “I don’t know what you mean, man, don’t come at me with that dumb ass shit. My life matter.” Looking directly to the camera and winking, Wayne added “especially to my bitches.”
The reporter asked if he felt connected to Black lives matter, he replied “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as shit.”
Later in the interview, Wayne stormed out saying “I ain’t no fuckin politician.”
