On the Lil Wayne’s recent Instagram Live podcast, the Young Money boss started weighing on George Floyd’s death, which occurred on Monday, 25th May 2020.

During Fat Joe and Weezy’s Instagram live, Fat Joe asked Lil Wayne what are his thoughts on the death of the 46-year old George Floyd who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on his neck during an arrest. The rapper started weighing on the death of the unarmed black man, George Floyd.

His words: “I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific,” – said Wayne. “We have to get so specific and what I mean by that, we have to stop viewing it from such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody of a certain race or everybody with a badge.”  

There have been protests across Minneapolis and the country in the wake of his killing.

Lil Wayne continued and said, “We have to get into who that person is. If we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

He also revealed why he doesn’t speak up more often when it comes to important issues. “The reason people always ask me why you don’t say this, why you don’t do that, what else am I gonna do after that? Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt, they think they did something,” he added. “I mean, what you gon’ do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out and do something? If I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I pray for them.”

According the rapper, he believes that people should be more informed before protesting. “What we need to do, we need to learn about it more. If we want to scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. You wanna protest about something, know what we protesting about. It’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. If we want to get into it, know what we talkin’ about before we talk about it.”  You can watch the full Instagram Live Lil wayne had with Fat Joe Below.
