You may or may not have heard about Lil Wayne's controversial appearance on Nightline on Tuesday night, in which the rapper told the interviewer that the Black Lives Matter movement had nothing to do with him.

There have been as many different opinions offered as the diversity of those making them is reflected in the media and on social media. One thing we know for sure; you're going to have an opinion of your own.

When host Linsey Davis asked Weezy about the movement, he responded;

"What is it? What do you mean? That just sounds weird. I don’t know, that you put a name on it…It’s not a name, it’s not, ‘whatever whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a fucked up reason.”

I'm Connected

Wayne goes on to argue that his success in the music industry is proof that the general population already believes that black lives matter.

"I don't feel connected to a damn thing that ain't got nothin' to do with me," he said.

With the full interview now available to watch, the rapper pulls out a red flag from his pocket and tells the interviewer, "I'm connected to this motherfucking flag. I'm a gang banger, man. I'm connected."

In another part of the interview, Wayne can also be heard standing by his comments during a recent Fox Sports interview in which he insisted that racism doesn't exist. During that interview, he was asked if he felt racism in the States, to which he responded, "No, not at all".

At the completion of the more recent Nightline interview, the host suggests that it ended "angrily" with Wayne telling her, "I ain't no fucking politician".

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne has since apologized for the comments that he made on Nightline, explaining that the line of questioning from the interviewer had made him upset. He told the entertainment website that when she began to ask about how he felt about his daughter being called a "bitch", etc, in relation to some of his explicit lyrics, he became angry and the interview was lost.

From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses,” Wayne told TMZ.

It might be best to watch the full interview and judge for yourself.
