Emmett Till’s Family is Rightfully Angry at Lil Wayne’s Blatant Disrespect
 

 
by Dr. Boyce Watkins

When a rapper says he’s gonna “pop a pill” then “beat that p*ssy like Emmett Till,” that’s when we know that he might have gone just a little bit too far. *But that’s just what happened this week, and the Till family isn’t happy.

Lil Wayne and Future, two very talented hip-hop artists, have decided to push the envelope of disrespect by releasing a song called “Karate Chop.”* In the song, Lil Wayne takes the liberty of turning the mutilated face of Emmett Till into a weary s*x organ, ridiculing the agony experienced by this young man many years ago. * The matter is made is even sadder by the fact that Till’s legacy was trampled by Lil Wayne, Future and Universal Records right in the middle of Black History Month.

I spoke this week with Airickca Gordon Taylor, spokesperson for the Till family and as you can imagine, the family is outraged.

“I just couldn’t understand how he could compare the gateway to life to the brutality and punishment of death,” said Gordon Taylor. For those of us who aren’t familiar with the legacy of Emmett Till (apparently, Lil Wayne already is), Till was a 15-year old boy who was beaten beyond recognition and murdered for whistling at a white woman.* Till’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley, made the courageous decision to insist that her son be buried with an open casket so that the country could see how ugly the brutality of racial violence can become.* Mamie’s sacrifice sparked international outrage and served as part of the fuel which created the foundation for the civil rights movement

I get mad about Katrina refresnces , that's like our 9-11. n*gga dont understand how's my people actually died, fu*k losing a house.

I don't see any disrespectful Katrina or 9-11 sh*t in music. When n*gga mention Katrina they just mean wet.

i guess some people could see it as being disrespectful by simply mentioning katrina, even if they are only using it as a reference to wet. im not sure what other way there is use till as a reference besides beating something up. ive heard many lines about "blowing up" like bin laden, 9-11, etc.

im not making the argument that its right or wrong. just that (imo) this type of thing is common in rap and they probably dont understand that.

It's not that serious though.....

That sh*t was 60 years ago an it's simply a reference to a historic event though it may be a death of a single person.

12 years ago 9/11 happened and people are rapping about it all the time. 3000 people died if I remember.

Biggie rapped about "blowing up like the world trade" in which 6 people died a few years after it happened.

Chill out.

not that big of a deal. it's a lyric to a song. a simile. it's for entertainment not news or historical publication.

side note: "killing these bi*ches like Rae Carruth" much more disrespectful and still the illest line wayne ever spit.

smh. you can't be that ridiculous.. it's the FAMILY calling it disrespectful. if the family of one of the world trade victims called that line by biggie disrespectful then by all means I have no say about them "taking it wrong". the nerve of you to say it is not that serious. until you lose a son to murderers who walked free due to this fu*ked up system you cannot have an opinion on this matter. whether it's 60 years or 70 those type of wounds never heal.
