Weezy is by far one of the most influential rappers/artist of our time and definitely a lyrical mastermind. Lil Wayne has the ability to weave metaphors and analogies through the ill-est tracks and make a Top 40 hit out of any song he is featured on. However his recent lyrics involving the slain teenager Emmitt Till made him Public Enemy No. 1 amongst industry greats like Stevie Wonder as well as Till’s family. In the song “Karate Chop” by Future he says, “beat the p***y up like Emmett Till”. On what planet did Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. think it would be appropriate/clever/funny/cool/hip hop to compare sex to the torture, degradation, fear and death of a fourteen-year-old is beyond comprehension. While Epic Records has apologized for the lyrics, Lil Wayne has not. For that reason, we are done with him.
