VIDEO: Lil Wayne dissociates himself from ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

The Grammy-winning hip-hop artist was flippant when Nightline reporter Lindsey Davis asked his thoughts on social issues.

In a preview of the interview, Davis addressed the Black Lives Matter movement, to which Wayne responds: “What is it? What does it mean?”

And when asked if he felt drawn to the movement, he answers: “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me.”

The rapper goes on to explain, “I’m a young black rich mother******. If that don’t let you know that America understand.”

Wayne has faced some backlash in recent months for his controversial opinions. In August, he led the Weezyana Festival crowd in a “Black Lives Matter” chant, but the following month told Fox Sports 1’s Undisputed that there was “no such thing as racism.”

Lil Wayne Gets Candid On The Black Lives Matter Movement

Lil Wayne may have a long week with of dragging after his controversial response on his thoughts on Black Lives Matter.

 ABC released footage on Lil Wayne’s sit down with “Nightline” where the New Orleans rapper seemed confused when he was asked about his stance on the BLM movement, “What is it? What do you mean?” he questioned.

If that wasn’t crazy enough, Weezy then goes on to explain why he believes why the movement doesn’t apply to him, “That just sounds weird, I don’t know that you put a name on. It’s not a name; It’s not ‘whatever, whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by police for a f*cked up reason.”

He then goes on to say, “I am a young black rich motherf*cker, if that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf*ckers matters these days I don’t know what it is. That man white; he filming me I’m a n*gga. I don’t know what you don’t come to me with that dumb sh*t ma’am. My life matters, especially to my b*tches.”

Female Cop who shot Dead Unarmed Black Man charged with First Degree Manslaughter

Prosecutors in Tulsa, Oklahoma, have filed charges against the white female police officerBetty Shelby, who shot and killed unarmed black man, 40-year-old Terence Crutcher who had his hands up on September 16. She has been charged with first-degree manslaughter. Dashcam and aerial footage of the shooting showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby with his arms up in the air. The Tulsa County District Attorney’s office said Officer Shelby ‘reacted unreasonably by escalating the situation’ by ‘becoming emotionally involved to the point that she overreacted.’
Crutcher’s twin sister, Tiffany, spoke to reporters outside of the Tulsa County Courthouse on Thursday and said that the family is happy Shelby has been charged. She said that they hope the district attorney prosecutes the case and hopefully obtains a conviction. Adding that she hopes a criminal conviction will help bring an end to the killing of innocent citizens by police.

Oklahoma GovMary Fallin  also said that she hopes a first-degree manslaughter charge against Shelby provides some peace to the Crutcher family and to the people of Tulsa.

Urging Tulsa residents to be patient as the case works its way through the justice system. She also added that Shelby is innocent until proven guilty.

A warrant has been issued for her arrest and arrangements are now being made for her to surrender. If convicted, she faces between fours years and the maximum sentence of life in prison.
