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 Will Design & Release His Own Shoe Line

Lil Wayne Will Design & Release His Own Shoe Line

It looks like Lil Wayne is heading more and more into the fashion business. Weezy has already released his TRUKFIT clothing line and now he plans to release his first signature shoe line. VIBE spoke recently with Tune about his first line of kicks, but he didn’t want to give away too many details. Tunechi did say that the shoes will not be released through TRUKFIT, Reebok or Nike and we will get an official announcement in the next few weeks.

VIBE: Do you guys plan on doing Trukfit shoes?
Lil Wayne: That will probably be further way down the line. I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won’t be Trukfit. I have shoe with a well-known company. I just don’t want to say yet because I haven’t dotted the line yet. But it’s done

Can you give us any hints? Is it going to be a major shoe company like Nike or Reebok?
Nah, it’s not a Nike or Reebok, I can tell you that much.

We’ve seen you in Supras heavy…
Uh-oh. Watch out [Laughs].
