Following news of rapper Lil Wayne’s recent health scare, the family of slain teen Emmett Till issued a statement in regards to Wayne’s current situation.
“Certainly the family of Emmett Till is praying for Lil Wayne’s recovery. Wayne is a human, just as Emmett Till was,” read a post made on the Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation Facebook page.
Till’s family, his cousin Airickca Gordon-Taylor in particular, had a few choice words for the rapper after Lil Wayne made reference to Till on Future’s “Karate Chop (Remix).”
Taylor stated that the Young Money founder had “no pride and no dignity” for making such a reference and “Karate Chop (Remix)” was later taken down by Epic Records.
As far as Lil Wayne’s health is concerned, recent reports state that the rapper has finally been moved from the Intensive Care Unit.
