Emmett Till’s Family Rejects Lil Wayne’s “Apology”

(AllHipHop News) It seems like Emmett Till’s family is quite clear on what they wanted from Lil Wayne – an apology – and now they reject a letter that the rapper wrote to them today.

Lil Wayne may have used some clever wordplay in a publicist-issued letter issued today that seemed to be a formal apology for lyrics i “Karate Chop.” In the song, the rapper metaphorically speaking on how he would physically beat up a woman’s private parts like Emmett Till.

The Till family got the letter and said there was no actual apology in it.

Airickca Gordon-Taylor, Executive Director, Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation and Till Family Representative, released the following statement.

We are aware of Lil Wayne’s statement of acknowledgement of our family’s pain and our disapproval of referencing Emmett Till in his lyrical content.

While it’s commendable that he has vowed to respect the legacy of Emmett Till and his memory to ‘not use or reference Emmett Till or the Till family in his music’, this statement falls short of an apology, as none is mentioned.

Lil Wayne has not commented on the matter yet.
