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.”

Lil Wayne writes that during his 2010 jail stint in New York’s Rikers Island, he officiated a same-sex wedding – and also learned his girlfriend had slept with fellow rapper Drake.

The revelations are featured in Wayne’s upcoming memoir Gone ‘Til November, which recounts his time spent serving his eight-month sentence stemming from gun charges, Page Six reports.

Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr, describes in the book marrying off two male inmates. Inmates decorated the hall with toilet tissue and toasted to the union with 13 bottles of Gatorade.

“Gatorade is liquid gold in this bitch,” he writes in the handwritten journal. “Imagine seeing grown-ass men in jail hanging tissue for wedding decorations. AND one of them is Lil Wayne. Crazy.”

As for his girlfriend’s infidelity with Drake, Wayne writes: “Finding out that she fucked Drake was the absolute worst thing I could have found out. Drizzy came to see me, he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s true’. Damn! This is the type of shit a man never wants to find out while he is locked up.”

Elsewhere in book, Wayne describes visits from P Diddy and Kanye West, plus a girlfriend he asked to show up without wearing underwear (“to do a Basic Instinct”). His plans were thwarted, however.

“They have extensive-ass searches before you come in here, so they made her put on a pair of boxers because they knew she didn’t have on panties,” writes Wayne. “Damn!”

Wayne was arrested in July 2007 when a loaded .40-calibre semi-automatic gun was found on his tour bus. He released his eighth album I Am Not a Human Beingduring his incarceration; that album’s follow-up, The Carter IV, came out in 2011.

Gone ’Til November is out 11 October.

Lil Wayne Opens Up About What Happened Between Him & Birdman

Lil Wayne didn’t get a big enough piece of the $100 million pie, that he says Birdman received from Universal Music Group distribution deal.

According to a fresh round of legal documents reported by TMZ, Wayne says Birdman confessed to spending around $70 million on royalties, marketing and recording costs. The Cash Money Records founder reportedly supplied Tunechi’s lawyer with more than 20,000 pages of document to prove that he spent the money on business expenses.

However, Wayne says the money isn’t adding up because the $70 million isn’t included in the paper trail, which is significant since the “Grateful” rapper is suing Cash Money for $51 million.

The two have been going at it in court for well over a year now, and it looked like Wayne was inching towards retirement to fully wash his hands of the legal battle.

He addressed the issue  on ESPN earlier this week.  “This is business,” Wayne told Skip Bayless. “I have a family, I have kids, I have a mother, we got bills. Once the business is right, then everything is right.”

Lil Wayne Clarifies Retirement Rumors

Last week, #LilWayne had everyone clutching their pearls after sending out a tweet which alluded to him retiring from the rap game.

He said, “I am now defenseless and mentally defeated & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun.” .. Done with what and why?!

Anyway, Wayne visited Undisputed where he opened up about what he meant by the tweets. “This was a tweet off of an argument over what’s going on,” Weezy clarified. “I was at my tipping point.”

It turns out that the rapper had just become fed up with all of the drama surrounding his lawsuit against Cash Money CEO Birdman. He alleges that he’s still owed over $51 million and is pissed that he isn’t able to release his Carter 6 album.

When the rapper was asked about the state of he and Birdman’s relationship, he basically alluded to them being less amicable than they used to be.

“This is business. I have a family. I have kids. I have a mother. We have bills. Once the business is right, then the business is right.” Even when the money gets right, it seems like they’re still not going to be cool though.

Shannon asked whether or not he’d ever work with Birdman again and Weezy simply said, “No, give me mine and I’ll walk off free, smiling.”

As far as Wayne really being “done” with rap, he admitted, “I did feel that way. I still feel that way. I didn’t take [the tweet] down.” I think it’s safe to say that this is a sad day in hip hop.

Drake Supports Lil Wayne In His Fight To Quit Music

Following Lil Wayne’s tweet on his frustrations about his ongoing battle with Cash Money and Birdman, saying, “I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun. Ain’t lookin for sympathy, just serenity”; Drake posted a message to Instagram showing his support for his “boss”.

What’s Going On With Lil Wayne And Why Does He Feel ‘Mentally Defeated’?

Whether it’s tour stress, label duress, or a general mess of things weighing down on him, it doesn’t matter: Lil Wayne isn’t feeling so great, and he’s been through a lot in the last 24 hours.

First, someone dialed up 911 in Miami and falsely reported a shooting at his home, and this is the second time this has happened in two years. Then, shortly following the false alarm, he took to his Twitter, quit hip-hop, and shrugged it off some six hours after the fact.

Early in the morning on September 3, Wayne vented to his followers that he was all set with music, a curious thing considering how he just wrapped his own Lil Weezyana Fest and dropped a new track, “No Mercy.”

A conciliatory “I’m good y’all don’t trip” hit later that morning, keeping fans confused but at ease.

It’s easy to see why he’s frustrated: The rapper has been feuding with his label over delayed releases and dealing with other legal matters for years, and it appears he’s had enough.

What “I’m good y’all” entails remains to be seen, but hopefully he’s moved on from “defeated” to exactly that.

Lil Wayne’s Miami Home Raided By Police

Lil Wayne received a surprise guest at his Miami beach home on Tuesday: the police.

Though the rapper was not home at the time, ET has confirmed that his mansion was raided by Miami Beach police officers after obtaining a warrant. According to additional reports, the warrant was allegedly issued in order to seize property since Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., owes $2 million to Signature Group after a September court ruling.

According to TMZ, Wayne was sued by Signature Group, a company that leases private jets, for neglecting to pay utilities. Ruling in favor of Signature, the court ordered Weezy to cough up $1.8 million, plus $200,000 in attorney’s fees.

The raid comes one day after Wayne announced the upcoming Thanksgiving release of his new mixtape, No Ceilings 2.

Lil Wayne Tweets RIP to Lamar Odom

Rapper Lil Wayne has incorrectly pronounced Lamar Odom dead on Twitter. To make matters worse, Twenty Three hours later, the tweet is still up.

Former Laker (and ex of Khloe Kardashian) Lamar Odom is currently in critical condition at Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center after being found unconscious in a nearby brothel over the weekend. Meanwhile, back in 2013, the YMCMB head honcho, Lil Wayne was “killed” by the internet when rumors began circulating that he was near death and had been read his last rites.

One might think that an experience like that would make Dwayne a bit more sensitive to the accurate announcement of someone’s death on social media. But it hasn’t.

Lil Wayne Owing $2 Million Private Jet Utility Bills

Report provides that Lil Wayne is obligated to pay one of his private jet utility bills of over $2 million!

Wayne lost a lawsuit from Signature Group, a company that leases private jets to the rich and famous. Signature went after Weezy for missing payments during the first 2 years of a 3 year deal with the company.

According to the suit, Wayne had more than $1 million on his tab as of July 2014. For his part, Wayne claimed he never signed a contract with Signature.

The court disagreed, and ruled in favor of Signature. Since it’s been a year since the suit was filed, the $1 million ballooned to $1.8 million. Wayne also has to pay $200,000 in attorney’s fees.

Lil Wayne Drake Was Right ‘F*** That Ho!’

Lil Wayne settled his beef with Drake, who slept with his girlfriend, by concluding, “F*** that ho!” … this according to a book treatment he’s shopping around to publishers.

We’ve obtained additional pages of the treatment, which tie up the story we told you about Friday — that Drake visited him while he was at Rikers Island and told him the day before Weezy hooked up with his girlfriend, Drake slept with her. According to the treatment, Drake said, “I did f*** her.”

Apparently, Weezy decided the GF was too loose for his taste, because in the treatment he concludes, “As a man, I’ll admit that shit really f****d me up, but hey, **** that ho!” He added, “Love is blind, that’s why I say make sure that bitch is a seeing eye dog.”

And there’s some real entertaining stuff, like when Wayne writes about guards coming into his cell and checking his nut sack, and then opening his cereal box and stomping on it.

The treatment also has proud moments, like when Wayne was down in the dumps but was uplifted by a visit from his lawyer. He says when the lawyer left, he went back to his cell to make himself some dinner. “Tonight’s menu was noodle soup and a Doritos burrito. Yeah! Made it myself.”

But there were low points, too. He says that same night, “The guy below me yelled all night, “Yo, f*** you Weezy!”

Lil’ Wayne’s $51 Million Lawsuit Exposes Cash Money’s Dirty Business

2. Cash Money Records failed to provide Weezy and/or Young Money with accounting statements and payments of net profits for years.

Lil Wayne Sues Cash Money for $51 Million

Lil Wayne is suing Cash Money with the hopes of ending his contract with the label, according to TMZ. The lawsuit alleges that CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams and the company have withheld a substantial amount of money that it owes him with regard to the rapper’s still-unreleased new album, Tha Carter V. Because the label has not paid him the money he claims he’s owed, Wayne contends that he should be able to leave Cash Money.

In addition to severing his contract, Lil Wayne is seeking $51 million and has asked a judge to declare him the joint copyright holder of everything released on his Cash Money imprint, Young Money, including recordings by Drake and Nicki Minaj. A spokesperson for Birdman was not immediately available for comment.

Last month, the rapper publicly spoke out against Cash Money, tweeting, “I want off this label” and calling himself a prisoner. Tha Carter V was originally due out last May, but was delayed to a December release; it did not come out and the Cash Money website still advertises it as “coming soon.” Around the time of Weezy’s tweets, his manager, Cortez Bryant, told TMZ that the rapper had no intention of leaving the label.
