After comparing sex to the brutal beating and murder of Emmett Till, Lil Wayne is finally acknowledging that his offensive lyrics were wrong.
In February, Lil Wayne hopped on the song “Karate Chop” and dropped this verse, “Pop a lot of pain pills, ’bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels … beat that p***y up like Emmett Till.”
Obviously, this angered the Till family who then claimed the lyrics “infected the Internet” and demanded an apology from the “Lollipop” rapper.
Well, after a two month wait, they’ve finally got what they asked for…well, kind of. Wayne issued the following statement to the Till family.
“It has come to my attention that lyrics from my contribution to a fellow artist’s song has deeply offended your family. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge your hurt, as well as the letter you sent to me via your attorneys.”
If you notice, the letter doesn’t say “I’m sorry” but it does “acknowledge” their hurt.
Weezy went on to say, “As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure. I have tremendous respect for those who paved the way for the liberty and opportunities that African-Americans currently enjoy.”
Still no “I’m sorry”…
