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 Says He Doesn’t Like New York x Photos From Magic Convention In Las Vegas

Carrying on with his interview with MTV, Lil Wayne speaks on how “awesome” Nicki Minaj’s free Pepsi concert was to make up for Young Money’s cancelled Summer Jam 2012 set. Weezy also says that he doesn’t like New York, because he always has bad luck when he visits the city.

“Flat out: I don’t like New York. You’re not supposed to leave it at, ‘Everything happens for a reason’. I believe everything happens for a reason and then you make the most of that reason. I think we made the most of it last week.”

After the jump, you can view lots of pictures of Tune showing off his own SUPRAs and TRUKFIT clothing line at the annual Magic Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 20th.
