Pepsi Drop Lil Wayne As Their Sponsor For Mountain Dew Over Emmett Till Lyric

Pepsi Drop Lil Wayne As Their Sponsor For Mountain Dew Over Emmett Till Lyric

PepsiCo have decided to drop Lil Wayne as their sponsor for Mountain Dew after his Emmett Till lyric on Future’s “Karate Chop” remix.

Weezy F Baby apologized to the Emmett Till family earlier this week with a letter, but they have recently come out and said that they don’t view the letter as an apology and that they want to meet Wayne.

If you follow hip-hop, then you will also know a similar story happened to Rick Ross recently. Reebok dropped Rozay for his lyrics on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O.” song were he rapped about drugging and raping a woman.

In my opinion, I really don’t think Tune will care too much about this. I guess it will also mean that we won’t be seeing anymore “DEWeezy” campaigns.

Lil Wayne Writes A Letter Of Apology To Emmett Till’s Family

Lil Wayne Writes A Letter Of Apology To Emmett Till Family

After Emmett Till‘s family mentioned they would be pressuring Mountain Dew to drop Lil Wayne as their sponsor, Wayne has decided it is time to address the situation and issue an apology to the family.

If you didn’t already know, Weezy F Baby rapped this line on Future’s “Karate Chop” remix: “beat that pussy up like Emmett Till”. He is referencing a 14-year-old black boy who got beaten to death for whistling at a white woman back in 1955.

In the letter, which you can read below, Tunechi promises that he will never perform the lyrics live and says he supports Epic Records for censoring the Emmett Till reference in the song.

Lil Wayne Addresses Miami Heat Comments & Walking Out Of Their Game Against The Lakers

Lil Wayne Addresses Miami Heat Comments & Walking Out Of Their Game Against The Lakers

Last night, Lil Wayne called into a Miami radio station, 99 Jamz, to speak with Felisha Monet and clear up his comments about why he said what he did about the Miami Heat and their players. He says he does not apologize for what he said because that is who he is, but he does take back saying “fuck LeBron” as they have a good friendship.

Weezy F Baby also made sure it was known that he said “fuck the Miami Heat” and not the city itself, as well as explaining the situation that happened at the Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers game just over a week ago. He confirmed that he did walk out of the AmericanAirlines Arena, but that was because he spends $1.5 million dollars a year on tickets and Dwyane Wade told him the team does not fuck with him.

In the final part of the interview, Tunechi talked about how the NBA pulled him from being involved in Gerald Green’s Slam Dunk contest, stopped him from performing with Alicia Keys at the All-Star Game halftime show, and not letting him have tickets for the event.

Listen to the full interview after the jump below.
