Bill O’Reilly Thinks Lil Wayne Plays A Big Part In Why Employment Is Low Among Black Males

During his Fox News show last night, Bill O’Reilly went on a “money, jobs and race” talking point to share his thoughts on why he thinks unemployment is high among black males in the United States of America.

The political commentator believes that the main reason for why many African Americans are not succeeding in finding a job is because in poor neighborhoods there is a lot of chaos, violence and very little discipline in public schools. He then went on to blame Lil Wayne‘s music too.

Before going on about Wayne getting dropped from Mountain Dew for his controversial lyric about Emmett Till, O’Reilly plays the leaked version of Tune‘s “Karate Chop” verse and then proceeds to call it “garbage” and “stupid rap”. He also starts to criticize Al Sharpton for doing a book deal with Cash Money Content, which to Bill, is a company that “markets vile stuff” and “harms black children”.

What is your thoughts about this Wayniacs ❓ Even though I am not from America and I am a white male, so I’m not too sure if my statement will count here, but Weezy F Baby‘s music has only ever motivated me to work hard and get what I want in life.

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 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.
