Lil' Wayne posted this on his Facebook page earlier....
"It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled "God Bless Amerika". The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed that behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America. In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground. In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up. I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don't get that chance. That's their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That's who I'm speaking for in this song."
Sound like a BS "apology" and explanation to me. What do you think?? If you missed the whole controversy...it's below. ***
SO DISRESPECTFUL. Like, I want to just kick some ass.
Rapper Lil' Wayne is shooting a new music video and steps all over our Stars and Stripes! Does he not know how disrespectful that is? You're not in a movie... you're playing yourself in a MUSIC VIDEO so there's no excuse.
Watch the video below and tell me.... just acting or completely disrespectful??
His lyrics are:"My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika."
Y'all watch the video and let me know what ya think below.
