New York, NY – Lil Wayne was the musical guest on Saturday’s (November 10) episode of Saturday Night Live and he brought a few of his famous friends to liven up the party.
The premise revolves around fictional rap duo the “Booty Kings” — played by Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson — who like to frequent the clubs for available women. They will only proceed to spit game if they have a woman’s consent.
“I’m on a mission for that ass, but first I need permission,” they rap.
While the booty-seeking duo continues their mission, special guest Future starts shuffling money into a collection jar for the Women’s Rights Fund.
Finally, Wayne comes in and spits a few bars about the topic at hand.
“Respect the ladies so I treat ya like an equal,” Wayne raps. “Got me starin’ at that booty like an eagle, yeah I see you!”
The irony isn’t lost. Several Twitter users were genuinely surprised Wayne and Future were included in the skit but considered it a sign of hope.
Check out a few of the reactions below.
