On a remix to rapper’s Future’s song “Karate Chop,” fellow rapper Lil Wayne compared a rough sex act to the tortuous death of 14-year-old Till in Mississippi. Following a crude reference to rough sex, Lil Wayne indicates that he wanted to do as much damage as had been done to Till.
As you could probably imagine, the Legendary Stevie Wonder had a hard time believing the distasteful lyrics were made available for the world to hear.
Stevie says, “Sometimes people have to put themselves in the place of people who they are talking about.” He added, “Imagine 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 (song)writer.”
