“Don’t come at me with that dumb-ass [s—t], ma’am.”
That was the response Lil Wayne gave Nightline's Linsey Davis when she asked him about the Black Lives Matter movement. Once again, someone asked Lil Wayne an important question that deals with a society he seems to have removed himself from because, as he says, "I'm a rich [n—ga]."
Lil Wayne made an appearance on Nightline, and it had nothing to do with upcoming album Tha Carter V and all to do with his stance on racism. Wayne has been on an interview spree in recent weeks, and during every interview, he's been asked about his views on racism. You see, Wayne doesn't think racism exists because a white cop saved his life once. Give him a round of applause for doing his job.
Wayne, who just released a book about his time at New York City’s jail Rikers Island, should probably pass on any future interviews because obviously he's being trolled just to see how dumb he really is.
During Wayne's Nightline interview, Davis attempted to probe several times about BLM, and each time he doubled down on his ignorance. At one point, he stated that he didn’t like giving incidents of police violence a name.
“That just sounds weird, I don’t know, that you put a name on it. It’s not a name, it’s not ‘whatever, whatever,’ it’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a [f—ked-]up reason," Wayne said.
And once again, he seems to believe that because he's rich, the only life that matters is his own.
“I am a young black rich [motherf—ker],” he said. “If that don’t let you know that America understand black [motherf—kers] matter these days, I don’t know what it is.” He then pointed to the camera and said, “That man white; he filmin’ me. I’m a [n—ga]. I don’t know what you mean, man, don’t come at me with that dumb-ass [s—t], ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my bitches,” he said.
Here's the thing: Why are people so concerned with what Wayne has to say? Why are people asking him for social commentary? Asking Wayne for social commentary is like asking Ozzy Osbourne about the molecular dynamics of an atom. Why would someone whose brain has been ravaged by drug use care about something bigger than him?
Over the last several weeks, Wayne has proved he doesn't give a damn. Stop trying to make him give a damn. Sure, he may have appeared on one of the most woke albums this year (ahem, Solange's), but Wayne's been brain-dead for quite some time.
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as [s—t]. Not the camera, you. Feeling connected to something that ain’t got nothin’ to do with you? If it ain’t got nothin’ to do with me, I ain’t connected to it," Wayne said, after being asked if he felt a connection to BLM. “I ain’t no [f—kin’] politician."
If you're not asking Lil Wayne about Tha Carter V, please move on. Don't even bother. The man's brain can't handle logical discussions. Drugs and ignorance are bad … mkay?
