Lil Wayne Sends Message To Sandy Hook Elementary, Says He Regrets Weapons Charge

Lil Wayne sends heartfelt message to those affected by Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

By now, Lil Wayne has made it clear that he is a great fan of sports. The emcee has had his own show online, he's appeared on several sports shows in the past and he attends games regularly. But in a recent interview with another sports show, Jim Rome On Showtime, he took the time to talk about more than just sports. While most of the interview was centered around it, perhaps his most heartfelt message came at the end of the interview. During this moment, Wayne expressed regret for his past with weapons and respect to those who suffered from tragedy in the recent Connecticut shooting, showing that he had much more on his mind than just sports & Rap.

When discussing his time in prison, Lil Wayne thanked those who supported him. In particular, he thanked Brett Favre.

"At the moment, it meant more than a lot. At that moment, you're looking for help from anywhere," he explained. "You're looking for support from anywhere possible so to hear Brett Favre say he's praying for me everynight, that put a smile on my face for a long time. And to smile in that place is almost impossible." 

He also discussed his displeasure with current NFL rules, gave compliments to some athletes who rap and more. 

However, his most most heartfelt moment came at the end of the interview. During this time, Wayne took a moment to provide a message for Sandy Hook Elementary, the school most affected by the Connecticut shooting.

"Before I leave, I want to say you mentioned that in 2010, I was locked up for a weapon. If there was anything I could do in my life that I could ever change, it'd be that. Sandy Hook Elementary, my heart goes out to you," he said showing that Sandy Hook Elementary was written on his shirt.

    Garaunteed he continues to brag about guns in his songs.....

  • GoDonnieX

    Wayne is just following somebody's orders. This is propaganda for gun control. Wayne's guns were not going to be the ones shooting up a fuckin elementary school. How the fuck does this shooting have anything to do with whether responsible citizen's should be able to protect themselves from a foreign onslaught... or domestic for that matter. Fuck these politicians.

  • fullofish

    I nearly killed myself with a firearm that I accidentally discharged into my chest putting a bullet 1 inch from my heart. I went to prison on a NY State firearms conviction. Here is a small sample of some lyrics from my career as a gangster rapper: "With the gun in this position, you could call it Kamasutra" "I'ma call my guns jumpers, cause my bullets just leapin to 'em" "Imma spare everything but these n-s I flip the gun and gun f*** these n-s take the knife off the AK and cut these n-s" "My gun go crazy like it's retarded. Red light on it's like it's recording" "Guns turn you boys into sex change." "A gun is not a math problem, I won't even think, Just leave ya dead like the mink under my sink."

I applaud him for his message BUT if we are going to ask MC's about weapons and jail time.......let's go for people like T.I. or 50.....who REALLY ACTUALLY lived in the streets and REALLY were in tune with that lifestyle......HALF these guys get in the booth PRETEND that are gangbangers, crime lords, and weapon fanatics and THEN when some shit happens with them or society they back pedal faster then a DB covering Calvin Johnson.....word up.

      milehigh spoken like a real geek. If you grow up in the hood shit is hard as fuck. If you never been to the hood dont speak on the hood-Treach Even you dont gang bang or sell dope it doesnt mean shit is easy or you was soft because I know guys that are not gang bangers or d boys and they will kill you quick.

    • Ghetto is born not made

      Anybody who lived in poverty until the age of 10, in the 17th ward like Lil Wayne, can be considered a real ghetto boy. Clown, just because you make money and move to a mansion, it doesn't change what the hood made you. Only someone from the suburbs would even think like that, because they don't understand.

  • WL

    he is definitely maturing. folks only praise the negative.

  • Corey

    How is this news? I regret those weapons charges I got? No way, he spent time in jail for it, I'd regret it too. Then why'd he have them? Why's he still rapping about the same shit? Promoting Chief Keef and Lil Mouse? Dude wants attention. It's like he's looking for a way to make Sandy Hook about him...

    remember when he shot himself?

  • MaG

    its crazy the stuff we choose to comment on, respond to, and criticize. I feel like if this said "Lil Wayne Dropping Album in 2013" the comments would be filled. I think this is just as important, if not more so.
