When a rapper says heâ€™s gonna â€œpop a pillâ€ then â€œbeat that p*ssy like Emmett Till,â€ thatâ€™s when we know that he might have gone just a little bit too far. Â But thatâ€™s just what happened this week, and the Till family isnâ€™t happy.
Lil Wayne and Future, two very talented hip-hop artists, have decided to push the envelope of disrespect by releasing a song called â€œKarate Chop.â€Â In the song, Lil Wayne takes the liberty of turning the mutilated face of Emmett Till into a weary s*x organ, ridiculing the agony experienced by this young man many years ago. Â The matter is made is even sadder by the fact that Tillâ€™s legacy was trampled by Lil Wayne, Future and Universal Records right in the middle of Black History Month.
I spoke this week with Airickca Gordon Taylor, spokesperson for the Till family and as you can imagine, the family is outraged.
â€œI just couldnâ€™t understand how he could compare the gateway to life to the brutality and punishment of death,â€ said Gordon Taylor.
