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.
