By now, you’ve probably watched the infamous ‘Dateline’ interview with Lil Wayne that has everyone side-eyeing the Hip-Hop veteran. Lil Wayne basically dismissed the Black Lives Matter movement. Apparently, being a part of the movement doesn’t apply to him as a black man because he’s, in his words, “a young black rich muthaf*cka”.

Got six minutes to spare? watch the cringe-worthy interview below!


“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” the rapper told ABC News’ Linsey Davis.


Obviously, Lil Wayne’s interview set off a lot of emotions from fans, associates, and critics, alike. T.I., a fellow Hip-Hop veteran from the south and someone who has collaborated on projects with Wayne, took to Instagram and basically shamed Wayne for his opinions.


@liltunechi This is my son & daughter showing me this for the first time & asking me what you mean? I’m at a complete loss of words here. Wayne I’ve known you over a decade. Our daughters grew up together practically. Reginae’ spent countless times at my house with Niq-Niq when you were in prison & you extended my daughter the same courtesy when I was in the same position. Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still nigga U TRIPPING!!!! I don’t know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You’re disrespecting yourself,bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy. You have children (including mines prior to now) that have looked up to you. You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership. Bro if you don’t stand for something out here,all the money,jewelry,cars,mansions bandannas & hit records don’t mean shit!!!! Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted,captured & slaughtered out here daily!!! You have to get outta that bubble that you’ve been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what’s going on around US!!! I’m always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development,but u MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin’ you out here doin. You looking like somebody who has something to gain or lose by pretending like it’s not as bad as BLM making it seem & you’re not aware of an issue that needs to be addressed. That’s what would be considered “Uncle Tom Shit”…. I know U,YOURE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!! I’ve been proud to call myself a fan & a friend of Lil Wayne ,but if that must end in order to stand up for those who can’t do it for themselves…So be it. If you’re not prepared for a question in an interview,say No Comment Bro. But stop embarrassing yourself & everyone out here who’s been supporting you. There is no middle ground. Oppression knows no neutral party,either you’re part of the oppressed,or you with the oppressor. There is no such thing as oppression not affecting you. It’s #USorELSE out here

What are your thoughts?

Chance The Rapper Came ALL THE WAY THROUGH with his debut on Ellen. He performed his current hit, “No Problem” with 2 Chainz & Lil’ Wayne”. Wayne even added some new lyrics to his verse, inspired by his beef with Birdman.

Check out the energetic performance below!

Chance took the time to chat with Ellen about his choice NOT to sign with a label.
One of the hottest rappers in the game chooses not to be bound by a contract! That’s dope AF!!!

According to TMZ, rapper Lil Wayne has suffered two seizures on his private plane while headed to California Monday.

The website reports that Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, was traveling from Milwaukee to California when he suffered his first seizure. An emergency landing took place in Omaha, Nebraska where Carter met with paramedics. Carter refused treatment

After Carter refused medical treatment, he boarded his plane, only to land in Nebraska minutes later after suffering from another seizure. Carter was ¬†transported to a hospital by ambulance. It’s reported that he’s in stable condition and in good spirits.

Lil Wayne, who has described himself as having epilepsy, has suffered seizures before, including in 2012, when a plane he was traveling on made a similar emergency landing in Louisiana, and 2013, when he spent six days at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
