Gangster rapper, Lil Wayne, has once again commented on the Black Lives Matter movement, and as expected, he didn’t mince words.
During an interview Tuesday with ABC’s Nightline, Lil Wayne, who’s real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., explained that he doesn’t feel connected to the social justice movement which formed in recent years amid protests over police use of force against African Americans. As expected BLM movement supporters took to social media, and they’re pissed.

“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” he said.

The rapper added Black Lives Matter “just sounds weird.”
“I don’t know that you put a name on it,” he said. “It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever,’ it’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f**ked up reason.”
He also said, “I am a young, black, rich motherf—er,” he said. “If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf—ers matter these days, I don’t know what it is.”
The rapper concluded the interview that way only Lil Wayne could stating, “That man white — he filming me,” the rapper then said, pointing to the camera. “I’m a ni–a. I don’t know what you mean ma’am. Don’t come at me with that dumb sh-t, ma’am. My life matter, especially to my bitches.”
After that he stormed out of the interview. When the Nightline episode aired on Tuesday, social media users who agree with the BLM movement went on a tirade. Needless to say, Wayne should stay off of twitter for a few days.

Now this isn’t the first time that the New Orleans rapper has criticized the Black Lives Matter movement and poked holes in their ideology. Previously in September, Lil Wayne appeared on the Fox Sports show “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed” and said, “I have never dealt with racism.”
When Kaepernick’s protest was brought up, Lil Wayne said that he respects athletes, but wanted someone to explain why Kaepernick was even involved in such a protest. Our thoughts exactly.
