Jeezy Shares His Thoughts On Lil Wayne Saying He Doesnt Feel Connected To The Black Lives Matter Movement

Young Jeezy recently sat down with Hot 97’s Nessa for a one on one interview and to promote his new album, Trap Or Die 3, which you can check out in a clip after the jump below.

At the 5:15 mark of their conversation, Jeezy was asked if he feels he has to defend or does he understand what his “Bout That” collaborator Lil Wayne had to say about the Black Lives Matter movement in a recent interview!

“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. People have to understand he’s been a superstar so long, since he was a child, I grew up on him. He 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.”

    Wayne really did some damage with that comment. Hopefully it encourages him to drop #D6 even faster!

    Edit: 1st!

    • Gudda Gudda

      why? so more people can hate?

      • Only4MyRealOnes

        Who’s hating on Wayne gudda. Please tell me. He is at the worst point of his career. EVER. Who is hating on that? If anything I’m praying for my FAVORITE ARTIST to bounce back. Gudda take your estrogen pills and relax.

  • TooReal

    While people still tripping about this I’m just waiting for this shit to to die down so Wayne can Focus on this law suit and his music lol

    • Patrick H

      Everyone will have forgotten next week it’s all good.

      • CarterBoy

        Not if these interviewers keep asking the artists they interview about Wayne’s comments

  • TooReal

    I bet while all the people on social media posting and tweeting harsh shit about Wayne all becuz he not following a movement they say he should be following Wayne proly just sittin layed back double cup and one hand and a fat blunt in the other not giving a fuck

  • Ye’

    Wayne was only talking truth he does understand

    • TooReal

      Yea but now days if your opinion not the same as others your the one wrong smh

      • Gudda Gudda

        exactly

    • Sparks

      He has made songs that are in line with the motions of the BLM movement. So what truth is he talking about “what are we running from , the police cause they’ve already enough us” just to give an example

      • Heroshe_tunechi

        So exactly that’s what happened. POLICE KILLED A BLACK MAN. that doesn’t mean the whole America is racist and doesn’t care about black lives. That’s exactly his point. How dumb are you. How can a policeman killing a black man is racism. It’s some fucked up incident and all have to act against it. Not blacks should act against white. Smh

        • Sparks

          Are you a fool ? The black lives matter is about tackling police brutality fool. Racism is tackled by a sub group of the movement. That’s why most people say ignorant stuff cause they don’t know what it is. Now go do your research boy

          • Thetruth

            Do your research, black lives matter was built on lies.

            • Sparks

              Um police kill black people and not getting justice is a lie ? Alright bro

              • Thetruth

                Police killing black people who are criminals and have well deserved it. It’s not hard to not be a criminal. Police kill just as many white people, actually double, as blacks.

                • Sparks

                  Wow I see criminal that have no weapons deserve to be killed by the cops? Are you some kind of stupid. If you saying BLM was built on lies cause Michael brown didn’t have his hands up does that still disprove the notion they are about which is ” tackling police brutality on blacks and also not getting justice ” Michael brown having his hands or not don’t make their message and less important stop being stupid. I bet you if Wayne said he supported BLM you’d be on his side. You a Stan. FOH can’t even take you seriously after you said. They kill black criminals that deserve it. Alton sterling – selling CDs ( guess he deserved it)
                  Castle – did everything he was supposed to as a licensed gun owner( guess he deserved it)
                  The dude that ran away from the cops and the cops shot him multiple times (I guess he deserved that too). Dog stop your ignorance

                • Thetruth

                  Sterling was a criminal, with a weapon. If you run from the cops and resist arrest then ya get shot at. No need for that bullshit running in this country. Live by the law bitch. And if Wayne said he supported BLM then I would be like well that’s a disappointment. And I’m glad he doesn’t. He knows what’s up, police brutality my ass! Stop the black on black crime that is killing the most blacks in this country by 500% dumbass. Talk in proper English to me bitch. You’re as worthless as the fucking criminals pleading they are innocent. Yes deserved to be shot, slim the population and get rid of the idiots destroying society!

                • Sparks

                  You white?

                • Thetruth

                  Damn are you a rocket scientist?

                • Sparks

                  Okay I see you white. Nuff said. No need to carry on with the foolishness

                • Thetruth

                  It’s just ridiculous that all of this is happening when is always happened and blacks kill more blacks every year than anyone/anything else… this “movement” is foolishness. Police kill more than double the amount as white people a year and media doesn’t cover that

                • Slim_Tunechi

                  Preach that shit man. Dude got a IQ unlike most people on here

                • Free Ma$e

                  Police are killing unarmed black men who are committing nonviolent crimes. When was the last time you heard about an epidemic were cops are killing unarmed white men or white people who were committing nonviolent crimes. this motherfuckin white guy was eating another persons face off. He didn’t get shot, tased, nothing. I agree. All lives matter. But don’t act like there’s not a problem…

                • Thetruth

                  It’s the way the media portrays shit now, look up the facts

                • Free Ma$e

                  Honestly I shouldn’t have to look up anything. When I see a cop killed anybody anybody that’s wrong. I think the use of violence force or daily force should be the last resort from a police officer. So when I see them kill a 10-year-old boy, or a 12-year-old boy that’s wrong. If they are armed or not. A cop shouldn’t fire until fired upon. They took the oath so they understand the risks involved.

                • Thetruth

                  That’s how they get killed, being shot at first. They have the right to shoot first.

                • Free Ma$e

                  That’s not correct idiot. Don’t fire until a threat is made or fired upon

                • Thetruth

                  Threats were made, you try being a cop with that attitude and you’ll die the first day.

                • Free Ma$e

                  An officer shouldn’t have an “it’s either gonna be you or me attitude”. If they’re scared to die they shouldn’t take the job. First step should always be to mediate the situation not shoot at the first sign of adversity. I’m sure in their training they aren’t taught to just start firing shots. But hey! They say it’s nothing more terrifying than a scared motherfucker with a gun…

                • Thetruth

                  That’s why I said threats were made. Don’t just read over what I say.

              • Thetruth

                Look it up idiot

              • Thetruth

                It was built on a lie because michael brown did not actually have his hands up. The autopsy proved it. Ferguson and the people there fucked up this country…

      • Clay Newman

        But the thing is… Wayne doesn’t write these things down. All of the songs are off the top of his head at that moment. He may have been told “yo the hook is about this n this” and waynes goes in on that subject.

    • Santana πŸ‘½

      Wayne is actually really smart if you think deep into the shit he say

  • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

    D6 is still sitting on Drama’s Flash Drive in the Junk Folder

  • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

    Lol Birdman not letting Wayne off that label no matter what. Wayne’s basically stuck forever and can’t drop music 😭😭. Whatever was in that contract that Wayne signed with CM back in the day must of had some hellafied restrictions and shit on there which is why Wayne’s in this predicament now. He clearly violated his contract and if he really did then there’s nothing the judge can do. Wayne can leave but he won’t be getting his $51M. Or Drake and Nicki.

  • The best things in life are free , free my nigga weezy

  • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

    Views still had Young Money’s rights on it which means Wayne still gets paid directly from that . Also a fair percentage of whatever Drake makes from his tours and venues also goes to Wayne that’s why he made 15 million this year without an album. ONLY cause of Drake.

    • Cut yourself , then jump into a pool of piranhas .

  • Official Birdman #Respek

    It would make sense that Wayne would lean toward Hilary, not because he supports her movement, but what would you expect out of a man who’s as connected to his mom as Wayne is.

    • MkπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•Š(0% trolling)

      Wayne said dat he support hilary bec she said sky is the limit and there is no ceiling lol

      • Official Birdman #Respek

        I know, but I said that in addition to consideration of the person

  • TooReal

    We not gone hear nothing from Wayne in months now besides a few feats this might have been Career suicide for Wayne tbh and he can forget about being on top of the rap game again cuz now its definite that only die hard fans will support his music Now he probably won’t ever get his respect as one of the GOATs now because blacks want to be so sensitive but IDC if I was the last fan standing nothing gone make me not a fan unless he disses me lol

    • MkπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•Š(0% trolling)

      Nigga wayne fans around the world no in america only not only black people so stfu wayne is big artist than u could think

    • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

      lol Wayne fucked up huge!

    • Nathaniel Diaz

      My dude you don’t grasp how few of Wayne’s fans are black. They a small minority if his fans n I bet even most his black fans aren’t with that blm movement either. He got so many fans out the US..this is nothing but a scratch to his career which he planned on ending in about a year anyway

  • MkπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•Š(0% trolling)

    Black fans from america is 1% from wayne fans

  • MkπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•Š(0% trolling)

    Wayne dont owe anyone of this bitch who support blm a dime its all people live matter if you saying blm only you fucking ass hole and racist bitch

      Bitches

    • Official Birdman #Respek

      I’m black and agree. If it aint “humanity matters” then it dont concern me

    • Only4MyRealOnes

      He doesn’t owe it, but the people don’t owe him to buy albums either. Trump doesn’t owe blacks respect but we don’t owe him our vote. With that logic you will never be successful.

  • MkπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•Š(0% trolling)

    Im ride for my idol i would kill fo my idol and i would die for my idol nigga

    • Only4MyRealOnes

      Borderline gay. You never spoke to him in person but you would spend the rest of your life in jail for him? You have to be a faggot of delusional.

    • The Bome Back

      Me too

  • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

    Wayne actually did scream BLM at the Lilweezyana fest but I ain’t goin say nun

    • Heroshe_tunechi

      He was being sarcastic if your dumb ass doesn’t know don’t talk about stuff.

      • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

        Cram his dick down your throat harder tbh

  • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

    All jokes aside, Wayne should just go ahead and give the fans C5 for free, go on one last tour, come back and give the fans D6 and just fuckin retireπŸ’―

    • #1Stunna(Fuck Kush)

      Ye shoulda been retired 4 yrs ago

      • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

        Facts

      • Only4MyRealOnes

        Yeezy is still relevant. Weezy is barely hanging on. I know it’s hard to swallow. We never thought this day would come, but it has.

        • #1Stunna(Fuck Kush)

          This is just simply not true.

  • Only4MyRealOnes

    As much as we as Wayne fans want to defend anything and everything he does, what really matters is majority. Not the minority vote. an example is meek mill, yes he has a core fan base, but Drake is winning because he has a mass appeal. Wayne still has us but his mass appeal is gone. Numbers don’t lie. I wish nothing but a successful bounce back for my man Wayne but I’m not going to kid myself either. I’m looking at facts and statistics. You stans are just looking at hope and prayers.

    • Nathaniel Diaz

      And what “numbers” are u going by? If you really did check the math you’d see his numbers have him on top tier. Even bulkshit 3rd party videos of Wayne that so many people make ring up crazy views. Ppl are always checking for him, even if its to be negative. Point is he’s still super relevant and u here acting like he’s being over shadowed by anyone. Fuk outta here

      • Only4MyRealOnes

        You are delusional as fuck. Lil Wayne is no longer where he use to be. Look at the billboard 100. Look at the iTunes top 100. Birdman is putting a strain on his success. You are a dick water who lives inside all day and can’t realize facts about the real world.

        • Nathaniel Diaz

          How he gon be on those charts without new music u dumbass? Lol “live inside allday” you got me fucked up Lil nigga. I ain’t like you n half the people here that comment on every post and have time to even make a specific discus account. Your computer screen frying ya brain u hoe ass nigga.

          • Only4MyRealOnes

            Suck a dick you faggot.

  • La Raza

    2011 was close to 2008 for wayne, dropped a carter album have a lead single that charted many with other great singles also lots of features in 2011 for wayne only thing that would have made it complete would have been if c4 sold a milli it was close tho

    • youssef

      It did

    • The Bome Back

      2011 was his peak

      • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

        No it wasn’t, 2007-08 actually was. He was still up there in 2011-12 but after 2012 his career started goin down the toilet pipes

  • The Bome Back

    Lmao but I remember when he was performing in August he did say “Black Lives matter” on stage

  • Justin Cayz

    Lmao this is pathetic. Blm movement is just a bunch of insecure people what the hell is this. Who the fuk cares if one nigga doesn’t agree with every feminist in the world. Straight up pathetic

  • Lil Weezy Vert

    all these people pissed off hahaha i love it. Infamy is the same as fame when your rich. People just dont seem to understand that.

  • TooReal

    Feel like we ain’t gone ever hear the end of this this gone follow Wayne the rest of his career and its something else the Wayne haters always gone bring up like the usual “Wayne Fell Off, He Not a real blood, he kissed another man in the mouth” now this

  • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

    2012 was really the last year Wayne’s career was still up and alive, after that he started falling off hard and losing relevancy. Personally I think it was Ianahb2 that did it a lot of ppl stopped fuckin with Wayne after that album. The only thing good about Ianahb2 was the dope ass cover Ye designed for it.

  • Lil Weezy Vert

    Man Kanye a spoiled ass white dude in black face i swear

    • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

      If Kanye is white then what do u call Wayne?? Nigga skates at 34, made rock music for like 2 years and wears vans 24/7

      • Lil Weezy Vert

        Niggas cant skate? Tons of black rockstars too. Ur point?

        • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

          Skating is proven a white sport and them other rock niggas is white too. No normal black person listens to rock.

          • Lil Weezy Vert

            Lol your stupidity amuses me

    • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

      And Uzi is literally the whitest black nigga in history foh

      • Lil Weezy Vert

        Hes white yeah. Not white in black face tho

        • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

          This nigga Uzi looks like he goes camping in the woods nd shit with his white friends

          • Lil Weezy Vert

            Okay is that an insult?

            • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

              I’m just saying since you wanna talk about white ass black niggas

              • Lil Weezy Vert

                Lmao im js… Ur comparing Kanye and Uzi now?

                • Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman

                  Uzi> Wayne. And yes Ye even said Uzi and yachty kind of reminds him of himself and his work when he was younger

    Also when Wayne said those black lives matter comments on stage I took it as sarcasm. “Nothing else matters, only black lives”..poking fun at you crazy pro nigger activists.
