Lil Wayne’s recent interview with Nightline was a disaster and his comments on Black Lives Matter have been discussed plenty on social media in the last twenty-four hours.
But Lil Wayne claims he was just really annoyed with the interviewer, and he apologizes to anyone he offended.
Hip Hop DX writes:
Weezy explained that his answers were said out of pure emotion following questions the interviewer asked about his 17-year-old daughter, Reginae Carter.
“When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a b*tch and a hoe, I got agitated,” Weezy tells TMZ. “From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses.”
He added, “Apologies to anyone who was offended.”
The New Orleans rapper shouted out that Black lives mattered during his Lil Weezyana Fest set this year and hasn’t been shy about addressing politics in his past music.
Wayne’s interview went viral after he acted clueless as to what the Black Lives Matter movement is all about.
“I am a young black rich [muthaf*cka],” he told ABC reporter Linsey Davis. “If that don’t let you know that America understand black [bleeped out] matter these days, I don’t know what it is. That man white [points at cameraman]; he filmin’ me. I’m a [n*gga]. I don’t know what you mean man. Don’t come at me with that dumb [sh*t], ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my [b*tches].”
