Lil Wayne is asked his thoughts on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and to much surprise, he doesn’t know
what that is. In a recent interview in front of a national audience with Nightline the rapper stated the following,
“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 fucked up reason… I am a young black rich motherfucker. If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherfuckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is… I don’t know what you mean, man, don’t come at me with that dumb ass shit, ma’am. My life matter. Especially to my bitches.”
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” he continued “If you do, you crazy as shit.”

This isn’t the first time Wayne has spoke out about racism. In September, he mentioned never experiencing racism and not knowing if it actually exists. Then in October, he followed that statement by saying he doesn’t know what racism is.
Seemed as though, Weezy was firm on his stance of obliviousness, until a video surfaced of him explaining why BLM at a concert.
