(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne once again shared his thoughts about social issues.
After addressing racism during an appearance on Undisputed and Black Lives Matter as part of an interview with the New York Times, Wayne was again asked about the social justice movement on Nightline.
“That just sounds weird, I don’t know, that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f-cked up reason,” said Wayne, responding to a question about BLM. “I am a young black rich motherf-cker. If that don’t let you know that America understands black motherf-ckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is.”
He added, “That man’s white. He’s filming me. I’m a n-gga. I don’t know what you mean. Don’t come at me with that dumb ass sh-t, ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my b-tches.”
The Young Money boss made sure to point out he does not feel any connection to Black Lives Matter.
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me. If you do, you crazy as sh-t,” Wayne declared. “You. Not the camera, you. Feeling connected to something that ain’t got nothing to do with you? If it ain’t got nothing to do with me, I ain’t connected to it.”
The “Sucker for Pain”” rapper then walked off the set, “I ain’t no f-cking politician.”
Twitter users began blasting Wayne for his comments.
His name became a trending topic on the social media platform for hours once clips of the Nightline Q&A arrived online last night (November 1).

Lil Wayne didn’t even know what BLM is….he don’t be in touch with nothing that’s going on. He should’ve just said nothing tbh

Take one look at Truk-Fit and tell me if you thought Lil Wayne really cared about Black people.

Lil’ Wayne sounds CRAZY saying he’s clueless about the racism when he has addressed that same issue in a few of his songs before.
