Lil Wayne Responds To Flag Controversy

Heavens to Betsy Ross. Lil Wayne returned to New Orleans to film his new video, “God Bless Amerika”. During the shoot, he continued his performance with the American flag beneath him. The move was deemed unpatriotic. In a statement given to karencivil, Weezy says he didn’t mean any disrespect.

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.

    Great job ..literally jumpin all around the question..forreal ross,2chainz & wayne all get fuckin passes for tonz of fuckery ..jus admit u fucked up , whats so hard about that..everybody wants to keep a sqeeking clean image..shits ridiculous

  • j

    I am not from the hood, but I understand what he is saying (for once!). I can respect his view.

    I didn’t see the clip but I actually thought it was a statement being made. I wouldn’t apologize for nothing. History teaches us that America is not our (Blacks/Africans/Alkebulans)home or even their(whites) home. Blacks should have an idea about that now, but then again, in this new extremely short of attention span generation, I doubt many care. My point will be proved if I receive backlash for my comment.

    i was fortunate for my god giving talents to escape the hood.. translation: birdman came n scooped my lil ass up

    i dont fuck with wayne but damn people stay reaching. it wasnt done intentionally getcha thumbs outta your asses

  • KingJuggaNott

    Fuck them. Here it is, Wayne can say offensive statements about Emmitt Till and gets dropped from an endorsement. Ross can say an Offensive statement and He gets Dropped from HIS endorsement. But A Faggit ass Golfer can bark about Serving Tiger Woods Fried Chicken and it’s like Oh fucking well. THAT’S not offensive to black folk? Fuck them.

  • KingJuggaNott

    If Wayne ever gives a positive message those white folks are gonna kill him. They already want to separate him from his money. First step was putting him in Jail…next step is killing him. Like they did with Pac…..Biggie…but wayne is killing his damn self, so for Now he’s safe.

  • Yeezus Christ

    who gives a fuck

  • STINKMEANER

    i would maybe care about this is wayne really had a message. dude isn’t really saying anything meaningful or thought provoking in this song.

    if you wanna get into political rap, go ahead weezy, but there are a dozen dudes who do it better than you, and who don’t puss out at the first sign of controversy.

  • veesky

    I’m no Wayne advocate by any means but for once, what he’s saying seems to make sense

  • Bowtie_fly

    The public relations company that advised Wayne here, should have been the same one Rick Ross went to when putting molly in her champagne became magnified as derogatory.

    I’m so not a fan of Wayne, but he should do what he wants artistically. Screw being politically correct with your response. It’s a fucking flag. Why is it such a horrible thing to step on a piece of cloth? Nationalism is part of what continues to divide us.

    fuck america and that flag. so, what? america has been saying “fuck black people and their humanity” for 450 years.

  • Nathaniel

    all the money this nigga generates for this economy, all within his own brand. since the mid-90’s. and they got the nerve to call him unpatriotic? it doesn’t get more patriotic than that.

    that flag has never meant to black people what it could and should mean. never. so fuck their attack on wayne.
