Lil’ Wayne recently sat down with ABC’s Nightline for an interview. Before the piece airs on Wednesday at 12:35 a.m. EST, Nightline drops a preview of their conversation with the Young Money rapper. In a clip released online, Lil’ Wayne is asked about his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement. “What is it? What do you mean?,” says Lil’ Wayne, who appears puzzled and confused.
He would go on to say, “That just sounds weird, I don’t know that you put a name on. It’s not a name…It’s not ‘whatever, whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by police for a f***ed up reason.”
The 34-year-old would continue to say, “I am a young black rich motherf***er, if that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf***ers matters these days I don’t know what it is. That man white, he filming me I’m a ni**a. I don’t know what you don’t come to me with that dumb sh*t ma’am. My life matters, especially to my bi**hes.”
