(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne was blasted across the internet after the Young Money boss made some controversial comments about the Black Lives Matter movement.
“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,” stated Wayne in a Nightline interview.
Hot 97’s Nessa spoke with Jeezy about what his “Bout That” collaborator had to say about BLM.
“Everybody has their opinion, but at the same time, people just might not understand. I’m not definitely coming to his defense because he is an adult. He understands what he’s doing,” said Jeezy. “People have to understand he’s been a superstar so long.”
He added, “[Wayne] might not be connected on that level. It is difficult because he’s been rich for a long time. He’s been living on his own island for a long time. Maybe it’s something he just don’t see.”
Jeezy expressed he is still able to connect with less fortunate people because the Trap Or Die 3 creator was not as rich as long as Wayne.
Wayne reportedly apologized for offending anyone, but the Young Money boss sent out a tweet that appeared to be defensive of his Nightline statements.
“Is intelligence always misunderstood?” posted Wayne.
