Lil Wayne: ‘I’m A Black Rich Motherf*cker…PROOF America DOES Understand That Black Lives Matter!’ [VIDEO]

I don’t agree with what a lot of Lil Wayne raps about and I honestly believe that we would be better off as a society without music that degrades women, encourages drug use and promotes gang violence, but we do live in a country where just about anyone can get rich if they sing about that kind of thing and that’s amazing.

Lil Wayne seems to think so too, because he recently went off on a reporter who tried to ask him about the Black Lives Matter movement. He has a shockingly strong opinion about the issue and isn’t afraid to say what he thinks.

The rapper said in an interview with ABC’s Nightline that he feels as though Black Lives Matter has “nothing to do with” him.

“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me.”

He then went on to address the reporter directly, claiming that you can’t have a connection with something that doesn’t affect you.

“If you do, you crazy as shit. You. Not the camera,” Lil Wayne said, pointing to ABC News reporter Linsey Davis. “Feeling connected to something that ain’t got nothing to do with you? If it ain’t got nothing to do with me, I ain’t connected to it.”

When asked if he would like to amend a prior statement he made claiming that he has never experienced racism in his 33 years of life, he said “not at all.”

“I’m a young, black rich motherf*cker,” the rapper continued. “If that don’t let you know that America understands Black [Lives] Matter these days, I don’t know what it is. Don’t come at me with that dumb sh*t.”

Watch the full interview below:

Black people are well positioned in American society to have the same successes everyone else has experienced. We have black politicians, black actors and actresses, black singers, black judges, lawyers and cops. We even have a black President, despite the fact that he’s done a terrible job. To that point, I think Lil Wayne is right, America isn’t in a hurry to diminish the accomplishments of black people simply because of their skin color.

It has to be tiring to have reporter after reporter ask you about a movement that your only relation to is your blackness. Feeling as though they don’t represent you because they’re complaining of issues that you never faced on your way to the top and yet being asked to have an opinion on it has got to be annoying.
