Emmitt Till Estate Upset Over Lil Wayne Lyric

Its still crazy to me that segregation was legal in America. Artists do NEED to be more accountable for the things they say. Emmett Till’s family is outraged over a new song released by Lil Wayne and Future where Lil Wayne raps this line:
“…Beat That Pussy Up Like Emmitt Till…” What do you think? Did Lil Wayne go too far? This is a bigger issue than Lil Wayne and his choice of lyrics, to me this is about self love and understanding the history of black people in America. I don’t think Lil Wayne really thought about the line before he said it. We can do better. Watch the Emmitt Till documentary below. -spotted at Rap Radar
