“Beat the pu–y up like Emmett Till,” Wayne rapped on Future’s “Karate Chop (Remix). And because of it he lost a major paycheck from Pepsi.
“We do not plan any additional work with Lil Wayne moving forward,” a rep for the soft drink giant said in a statement to MTV News. “His offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand.”
“We also support blocking and banning the endorsements,” a Till representative said on camera. “I’ve maintained through February, Don’t do the Dew. His biggest endorsement is through Pepsi’s Mountain Dew. Stop buying it, stop lining his pockets. People are outraged because they feel that he should apologize to our family.”
Wayne then issued a mea culpa to the family, “acknowledging” his lyrical miscue in the spirit of “word play,” but his attempt at making amends was panned by the family as a pseudo-apology, prompting them to seek further disciplinary action that would hit him where it hurts most: his wallet.
“While it’s commendable that he has vowed to respect the legacy of Emmett Till and his memory to ‘not use or reference Emmett Till or the Till family in his music,’ this statement falls short of an apology, as none is mentioned,” Airicka Gordon-Taylor, a Till family representative told TMZ.
Lil Wayne issued an written apology to the Till family but they weren’t moved by the open letter. ”While it’s commendable that he has vowed to respect the legacy of Emmett Till and his memory to ‘not use or reference Emmett Till or the Till family in his music,’ this statement falls short of an apology, as none is mentioned,” Airicka Gordon-Taylor, a Till family representative told TMZ Wednesday.
Dear Till Family:
As a recording artist, I have always been interested in word play. My lyrics often reference people, places and events in my music, as well as the music that I create for or alongside other artists.
It has come to my attention that lyrics from my contribution to a fellow artist’s song has deeply offended your family. As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge your hurt, as well as the letter you sent to me via your attorneys.
Moving forward, I will not use or reference Emmett Till or the Till family in my music, especially in an inappropriate manner. I fully support Epic Record’s decision to take down the unauthorized version of the song and to not include the reference in the version that went to retail. I will not be performing the lyrics that contain that reference live and have removed them from my catalogue.
I have tremendous respect for those who paved the way for the liberty and opportunities that African-Americans currently enjoy. As a business owner who employs several African-American employees and gives philanthropically to organizations that help youth to pursue their dreams my ultimate intention is to uplift rather than degrade our community.

Mtv has been hard at work promoting Vinny‘s new Jersey Shore spinoff show “The show with Vinny”. It has a unconventional talk format. Lil Wayne was the first guest on the couch and he basically confirmed his engagement to girlfriend Dhea. While eating, Vinny asks Wayne if he eats Italian food, to which he responds, “My fiancee is Italian.” (3:20 mark)
Wayne was rushed to Cedars Sinai in LA after suffering another seizure late Tuesday night. Weezy tweeted, “I’m fine. Thank u,” on Wednesday afternoon.
He spent 6 life threatening days in the ICU back in March. Tmz reported that it may have been an overdose of sizzurp. Lil Wayne disclosed to the public that he has been epileptic since childhood and in fact his seizures were not drug related.
The video is steamy. Lil Wayne and Nicki have some explicit sex scenarios. But Nicki reveals Wayne was the perfect gentleman and was hesitant to feel her up.
Nicki said “He refused to touch me. He’s so respectful.. and then I was like, ‘Wayne, you can touch certain parts!’ But he was acting scared. He was like, ‘Yo Nick, this is my dream, I’mma be the man after this video.
“He was just acting crazy, but if I didn’t tell him, ‘Yes, you can touch me, do this’, whatever, like, he refused to touch me. He’s a Southern gentleman, which people don’t realise.”
“We kept on laughing the whole time and he (Wayne) was like, ‘Stop laughing’ and I was like, ‘All right’, and then we’d burst out laughing again. But you know what?
“Towards the end of the night is when we shot the steamiest scene, and I guess I was just too tired to be nervous, I was like, ‘Whatever, let’s just get this over with!
“It’s still like, Wayne is still so sexy! He looks like a piece of art because he’s all tatted up. It’s just so sexy, black and beautiful.”
Lauren also talkes about BET’s hit show “The Game”
Wayne called into a LA radio station Power 106 earlier today to discuss his medical problems on air.
“The bad news is I’m an epileptic, I’m prone to seizures,” says Wayne
“Like, this isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them.”
“But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent,” he continued. “Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.”
No worries his team knows what to do in case he suffers a seizure.
“I have people around me. I actually have [seizures] so much they already know what to do. They already know how to handle it. Certain times I don’t even go to the hospital, but this time, it was real bad because it was three in a row, and I’ve never had three back to back like that.
“The third one was so bad and I live in the hills in L.A. So the reason why it was bad was that I live all the way at the top, so you know how hard it is getting down those hills. That was what was so scary about it.”
His seizures didn’t stop him from knocking up Nivea for the 2nd time.
Rumors on the internet are swirling Lil Wayne knocked up Nivea for the 2nd time. The New Orleans rappers currently has four kids by 3 other different women ( Toya Carter, Lauren London, and Sarah Vivian). Sources overheard Nivea at her 32nd birthday party say the baby is due in September and Wayne is excited about the news.
