Lil Wayne Pens Non-Apology To Emmett Till's Family
While Epic Records issued an apology in February and removed Wayne's offending lyrics from the track, Wayne remained silent on the matter for months.
In a letter issued this week, addressed to the Till Family, Wayne empathized with the pain that his words caused but did not say sorry for causing the pain.
"It has come to my attention that lyrics from my contribution to a fellow artist's song has deeply offended your family. As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge your hurt, as well as the letter you sent to me via your attorneys."
The dispute began in February with Future's song "Karate Chop (Remix)," which featured Lil Wayne's controversial lyric "beat the p***** up like Emmett Till." more on this story
