Emmett Till's Family Pens Open Letter To Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne is deep in drama and it's only February. While he recently spoke on his issues with the NBA, and his Chris Bosh slander, on Miami radio, Tunechi has yet to comment on the disrespectful use of Emmett Till's name in one of his rhymes. Now, Till's family has penned an open letter to the YMCMB rapper.

As previously reported, the "No Worries" rapper has come under fire for the line, "Beat the pu--y up like Emmett Till," from his verse on Future's "Karate Chop (Remix)." Epic Records, Future's label, apologized and his censored the song. Still now word of the incident from Tunechi's camp, though.

Now Till's family has penned a letter, shared by VIBE, addressed to Dwayne Michael Carter that explains why they feel so disrespected by the rapper's words.

A portion of the missive, drafted on letterhead attributed to Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation, reads, "Drafting this letter is very difficult because Emmett Till was not just a "sacrificial lamb" for the movement, he was our blood. There was a before image of our beloved "BoBo" that represented the fun-loving, bubbly playful child and member of our family before there was the iconic image of his disfigured face symbolizing as described by his mother as the "face of racism". [sic] He was more than a name that went down in history. HE WAS MAMIE TILL MOBLEY'S ONLY CHILD!"

The two-page letter goes on to urge Tunechi to be mindful of the power his words possess and suggest he join the Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation in efforts to "educate and restore" Emmett Till's name.

You can read the full letter on the following pages.

Faggit deserves to have two bullets lodged in his temple. Never liked this sissified,sellout,skinny jeans wearing,skater wannabe.Oh well maybe he rides it to far in a construction area and flips off a clip. Punks like him deserved to be lynched and set a fire. He is one thee ugliest motherfukkers i have ever seen in my life and any female that sleeps with this chimpanzee lookin a.ss nucca deserves aids.

fu*k him and his f*g supportin azz fans. n*ggaz still support this queer after he french kissed birdman and Stevie J. Now if another rapper did it you'd say hes gay,but since wayne did it you punks say nothing you downlow homos. He direspects big cities like NY and Miami and nothin is said. fu*k NY,theyve always been known to be puxxies you see how Pac punked them and fu*k Miami. Yall n*ggaz lame as hell. d!ck riding azz nuccaz. Wayne would never say fu*k Cali,Atlanta,or the Chi. Punk a.ss motherfu*ker should be a.ssassinated multiple times for ruining hiphop. He got no talent,never been a good rapper.

this is rap. most rappers are expected to write ignorant disrespectful sh*t

eminem's whole career consists of disrespectful rap
