Epic Records To Pull Future's "Karate Chop" Remix Over Offensive Lil Wayne Lyric
 

 

Lil Wayne caused controversy with a lyric on Future's "Karate Chop" remix where he raps, “Beat that pus-y up like Emmett Till," eliciting a fiery response from Till's family.

According to a.ssociated Press, Epic Records has responded to the backlash. After the Rev. Jesse Jackson reached out to Wayne's management The Blueprint Group on the family's behalf, the label has released a statement claiming that the remix was "unauthorized" and that it leaked online. The label promised to make efforts to erase the track from the web, stating that an official version of the song will be released at a later time that "will not include such references."

"We regret the unauthorized remix version of Future's 'Karate Chop,' which was leaked online and contained hurtful lyrics," the statement said. "Out of respect for the legacy of Emmett Till and his family and the support of the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. ... we are going through great efforts to take down the unauthorized version."

Additionally, a Facebook posting on the Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation last night said that Epic Records Chairman and CEO LA Reid personally reached out to apologize.

After learning of the reference on the song, Airickca Gordon-Taylor, the founding director of the Foundation and cousin of Emmett Till, spoke out on behalf of the family and branded the reference "disrespectful." "We found it dishonorable to his name and what his death has meant to us as a people and as a culture," said Gordon-Taylor. "It was offensive not only to us, but to our ancestors and to women and to themselves as young, black men. I just couldn’t understand how you could compare the gateway of life to the brutality and punishment of death. And I feel as though they have no pride and no dignity as black men.”

Till was k!lled in 1955 while visiting his family in Mississippi. He was beaten severely and shot in the head before his attackers tied a cotton gin to his body with barbed wire and threw him into the Tallahatchie River. Two white men were acquitted of the k!lling by an all-white jury.

It still doesn't make it right. Emmitt Till's death highlighted a much larger issue which Wayne of all people should respect.

Emmett Till wasn't a man, he was a 14 year old boy that was tortured, stabbed, choked then tortured again then finished by being shot multiple times. After that they threw his body in the water to rot for days.

His death represented the brutal truth of what the whites did to blacks in the south. So another black man, that wants to act like a **** and say that line to entertain those whites don't give two sh*ts about blacks, then you're going to have blacks from old and young to give their voice on that.

9/11 happened after the United States bombed and invade the middle east, which k!lled women and children, so the terrorists decided to show America what fear is. We still use drones to k!ll innocent people, yet we don't talk about that.

So I don't give a sh*t about the 9/11 lyrics, since that was a retaliation against what America did to their people. But Emmett Till was an innocent boy that was murdered for whistling at a white woman, he didn't attack or k!ll her, just whistled. So don't give me some quote that you don't even understand about. This isn't the same thing, idiot.




















And before you say that I'm just some black guy, I'm Hispanic, puto

Firstly my post was an (ironic) qoute from stalin which fitted into the topic.
What happened to him was beyond fu*ked up... but n*ggas die everyday b, people move on and forget about sh*t on a daily basis. If a rapper had used a punchline which was similar but to another race or another incident nobody would of said sh*t.

To throw Emmett Till into the term as a "n*gga that dies everyday" just shows how lost you truly are. I bet you never even heard about Emmett Till until this lil wayne track happened.

"n*ggas die everyday" represents dudes that choose to shoot each other over nothing. That's a n*gga, Emmett Till wasn't a godamn n*gga. He was an innocent black boy that was brutally tortured to death by some evil white hicks, to label him as some n*gga tells me you're labeling him as just some dog that needed to be put down. Plus I'm starting to think you're some stupid hick or some lost black man saying this stupid sh*t. I don't remember another rapper saying a punchline where a child was brutally tortured to death, could you bring me up to date on that, because I think you're full of sh*t.

I still can't believe you even labeled Emmett Till as a "today n*gga", like he was shooting up white folks and he had to be put down, k!ll yourself for that bullsh*t.

If n*ggas die everyday why you worried about 9/11 victims then???

And on Jay-Z blueprint 2 they took Biggie's line "Blow up like the world trade" off that album after 9/11. And his reference was of course the first bombing attempt on WTC

You reaching now
when did I ever say I was worried I don't give a fu*k, just weird how people pick and choose over what to cry over. There's a million messed up hip-hop lines.

Never heard the song but that line's just terrible, not the least bit creative. Anyway the line probably sparked more controversy than a 9/11 one because it mentioned an event involving an individual and reasons other posters mentioned
