"I ain't no motherf**kin' politician!"

Lil Wayne is in deep, hot water with the black community following statements he made about the Black Lives Matter movement. The rapper sat down with Lindsey Davis on ABC’s Nightline and chatted about his recent FS1’s Undisputed interview where he said he doesn’t think racism exist, one reason being that most of his fans are white. “I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism,” he told hosts Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe.

When it comes to music, Wayne is a genius. But when it comes to politics and social issues, he’s not your guy. He said so himself when he stormed out of his interview after being questioned about issues that continue to plague the black community. Yeah, it got that real.
