Lil Wayne Speaks on George Floyd’s Death; Says We Need to Stop Blaming “the Whole Force” or “Everybody With a Badge”

Lil Wayne is the latest rapper to vocalize his thoughts on the recent killing of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis and is calling for people to hold themselves accountable for the actions they’re taking regarding the fight against police brutality.

During an Instagram Live conversation with Fat Joe on Thursday (May 28), Weezy F. Baby spoke on Floyd’s death and the killings of other innocent Black citizens. “I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific,” he told Joe. “…And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge.”

The New Orleans native suggested that law enforcement should not be the focal point when placing blame. “We have to actually get into who that person is,” Wayne continued. “And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

Lil Wayne later explained his decision to not speak publicly on social injustices, questioning what he would be able to do to directly aid those impacted by these incidents. “What else am I gonna do after that?” he asked. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”

Tunechi also honed in on the importance of being informed about these issues, rather than supporting causes without being knowledgeable of the proper information. “It’s actually learning about it,” he explained. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know…We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”

Weezy has joined a host of rappers who have spoken out on social injustices and police brutality as of late. T.I., Cardi B, Diddy, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill and more have used their platforms to demand justice for unarmed Black women and men, like George Floyd, who have been killed by police.

Kanye West Says He Is Running For Presidency; Elon Musk Endorses Him

Published

on

For years, Kanye West has teased fans with the prospect of running for president, claiming to have been inspired by President Trump’s bizarre blend between reality TV melodrama and successful political strategy.

Yesterday, West finally announced his 2020 presidential run. Or rather, he typed a tweet on his phone and tapped, “send.”

That’s it – for now, there’s no evidence that West has actually filed the necessary paperwork, meaning he would have to run as a write-in candidate, if he’s serious.

There is, currently, one presidential candidate named Kanye West in the FEC database for the 2020 election year, a Green Party candidate named, umm …. “Kanye Deez Nutz West.” So, probably not the real Kanye.

One celebrity to offer his support to West was Elon Musk, who tweeted:

It’s unclear where Kanye West stands on the political spectrum – for a time, the singer was one of the few high-profile Trump supporters in the entertainment industry, but was never able to articulate why; it seemed to be an aesthetic choice, based on personality rather than policy.
