Lil Wayne has drawn the fury of black people in America towards him after he dismissed the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.
In an interview with Nightlife, when the rapper was 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 that black lives matter this days, then I don’t know what it is.”
Wayne has faced some backlash in recent months for his controversial opinions. In a preview of the interview, Davis addressed the Black Lives Matter movement, to which Wayne responds:
“What is it? What does it mean?”. In the full clip, Wayne got frustrated, snatched off his mic, and claimed “I ain’t no politician.”
