EXCLUSIVE: Emmett Till’s Family Plans To Relentlessly Pursue Lil Wayne’s Sponsors

(AllHipHop News) The family of Emmett Till simply wanted an apology from Lil Wayne after a song lyric offensively referenced their kin’s name.

On the unreleased remix of Future’s “Karate Chop,” Wayne rapped, “”beat the p—y up like Emmett Till.” The family of Till and others felt it was disrespectful to both the deceased teen as well as women.

Since, the rapper has not apologized, the Till family have told AllHipHop.com exclusively that they intend to pressure Lil Wayne’s sponsors, namely Mountain Dew.

Shortly, the Till Family are expected to make offensive moves forward to further address Wayne and Mountain Dew, a product of PepsiCo. A similar tactic by women’s group UltraViolet resulted in Reebok dropping Rick Ross from their campaign.

    That Wayne felt it appropriate to even write that lyric in the first place is an indictment of our culture and a failing of our people to pass on the legacy of the struggle. We must ask, would a descendant of the Holocaust ever make a similar type statement using Anne Frank as a punchline?

    But they hold up the mantra of “Never Forget,” while we have long forgotten and only seem to consider dollars and cents. Hence, the Till family (and those affected by Rick Ross’ comments as well) must appeal to their pockets rather than their conscience.
