While soul and R&B legend, Stevie Wonder, is a fan of Lil Wayne, he’s mad with the Grammy-winning rapper as he recently referenced Emmett Tillâ€”the 14-year-old boy murdered for whistling at Carolyn Bryant, a White woman, in Bryant’s Grocery and Meat Market in Money, Mississippi in 1955â€”when rapping on Atlanta rapper, Futureâ€™s â€śKarate Chop,â€ť single.
Known for his sexual lyrics, Wayne compares rough sex to Tillâ€™s death, indicating â€śthat he wanted to do as much damage as had been done to Till,â€ť reports thegrio.com.
â€śYou canâ€™t equate that to Emmett Till,â€ť Wonder said. â€śYou just cannot do thatâ€¦ Sometimes people have to put themselves in the place of people who they are talking about,â€ť Wonder said. â€śImagine if that happened to your mother, brother, daughter or your son. How would you feel? Have some discernment before we say certain things. That goes for me or any other writer.â€ť
