Emmett Till’s Family Speaks Out Again


The family of Emmett Till is not letting Lil Wayne off the hook for the lyrics that disrespected the memory of Emmett Till and women in general. While Wayne probably isn’t very stressed over the opposition, has refused to say sorry, the family of Till have released a new video chiding the rapper for what he rapped on “Karate Chop,” a song by Future. The song was removed by Epic Records and was never released commercially.

Emmett Till sparked the Civil Rights Movement when he as a young boy was murdered in 1955 for whistling at a white woman.

    Ha ha they’ve been inspired by the ross situation. Don’t do the dew… Ross’s lil rhyme couldn’t touch waynes as far as being disrespectful.. I don’t like censorship but waynes shit wasn’t even funny.

    • I kinda agree with that. They both were lines that never should’ve left the booth though.

  • anemia716

    yea, and unfortunately he isn’t the first rapper you use Emmett Till as a punchline.

  • Riding the whole Ross/Reebok wave. These artists should have better publicists to do damage control. Been hearing about this Wayne/Emmett Till controversy for a few months.

  • Dave Williams

    they where getting at lil Whack Wayne before rick ross. this situation is 4 maybe 6 months old and there speaking out again DUE TO the Rick Ross situation ( these youngins be direspecting the ancestors and he wont say he,s sorry? smh )

  • ZUBU

    Totally disrespectful to the E. Till legacy and to his family. The court of public opinion should sentence Wayne to a few moments alone in a small room with the Till family and their supporters. As someone else said this shit ain’t even funny

  • acapwn

    He shoulda never even said what he said. How could he say it and think that it would be all good? Ignorant!

    Why he whisper at that lady?

    • hoeyuno

      No. Those rednecks were laughing about it when leaving the court room. A journalist asks ” were you expecting to be found not guilty?”… the redneck replied “nope, but it’s what I was hoping for”… later the 2 did a interview explaining how they did it.
