Lil Wayne has no plans to backtrack.

Wayne further elaborated on the topic of Black Lives Matter during an interview with the New York Times.
The Young Money leader said:
I believe there’s a bunch of different types of artists and musicians. To even notice what’s going out there — I’m trying to make these words stop popping up in my head, I’m trying to make them rhyme. I’ve got all kind of color lives mattering up in here — green, all kinds of stuff mattering. I’m trying to make sense of what’s on in this world up in here [points to head].
Wayne later added:
I was on a sports show recently, and I was asked a question like that about black lives or whatever. When we got off the air, [the host] Shannon Sharpe said: “I really want to commend you for answering like that, because you didn’t make something up just to make yourself one of us. And to make yourself a victim.” I’m not that. And honestly, I don’t care. I care what’s going on with me and my kids and my world and my mom and who’s going to pay this next bill. That’s what matters to me.
Oh for the love of God! How can people not understand that BLM is not saying all police are bad? We just want the good ones to call out the bad ones and make sure they are punished for killing unarmed civilians!
I don’t expect sh-t from anyone who would make light of what happened to Emmit Till. F-ck Lil Wayne.
Yeah I think this was worse than his original interview. Meh.
I’m so tired of explaining #BLM to people. If you want to be ignorant, oh well.
He’s an agent. Any man who joins a gang at 25 is beyond reason
We figured this much. What was the point of this interview?
Wow… I wish people wouldn’t spend a dime on his music.. So all those folks that made him rich don’t matter?
I kind of agree with him. Social media and groupthink has so many young black people thinking that the world hates them because they’re black but it’s not the case. Check yourself and see why people are behaving a certain way before crying racism. The people that will do you the worst will look just like you.
Had he worded it like that he still would get dragged. Not everyone is down wit BLM and i think people should just accept peoples honesty, i much rather hear the truth than hear a bunch of lies a PR rep wrote
