During Lil Wayne's recent interview with Nightline, he caused some controversy with his statements on the Black Lives Matter movement. After asking what it was and getting some background, he said that it "just sounds weird." He went on to explain his take on things.
"I don't even know why 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 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. Don't come at me with that dumb shit, ma'am. My life matters, especially to my bitches."
Speaking to TMZ, Wayne explained that he was just mad because of a previous question. "When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a hoe, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses."
Lil Wayne told TMZ he sends apologies to anyone who was offended. You can see the full interview that Nightline ran here.
