Rapper Lil Wayne may have upset many proud black people, (inparticularly dark skin women). The New Orleans native-rapper, openly dissed a dark skin model by telling her (paraphrase), light skin women make babies with good hair. The story gets more interesting as the model provides a testimony of her run-in with LilWayne and his crew, (‘Young Money’), in which she includes some disturbing quotes made by the ex-convict rapper:
“My friend Tammy is a model she had a couple of photo shoots to go to in miami ..after going to her photoshoots we met up with mack maine from young money, he then took us to a hotel a couple of other girls were there and so was lil wayne, guda guda, lil chuckee, and birdman. My friend Tammy is light skin and me and my friend jessica are dark skinned chicks, when we entered the room guda guda was like“damn ya’ll pretty to be dark skin” and then wayne quoted a verse from one of his songs that said “Beautiful Black Woman i bet that b*tch look better red”.
I heard the song before and i was offended when i heard the lyrics i brushed my feelings off and forgot about what the gremlin said, but him saying it over again made me angry as hell, tammy was looking in shock and jessica was clearly upset ,so me being the outspoken person that i am i said Wayne your daughter is dark skin so why would u say such ignorance. he then said “my daughter is a dark skin millionaire thats the difference between her and u”. Is this fool serious?
I can tell he was very upset because i brought his daughter up but that is no excuse for what he said next he stated “MY daughter is the first and last dark skin child im having, the rest of my baby moms light skin chicks i even got an asian baby moms to make sure i have a daughter with good hair, too bad we had a son”, everybody start laughing and me and jessica stormed out of the room and some guys followed us saying “not everybody hate dark skin girls Young Money just allergic to Chocolate”, of course me and my girls cursed them out..
Lil Wayne has been known to put light skinned women on a pedestal in many of his songs, and always features lighter complected women in his videos, but if this testimony is to be believed by this young model, Lil Wayne may lose several fans (who happens to be dark skin women). Not to mention, Lil Wayne’s 12 year old daughter, and her mother (Toya), are dark skin women as well.
Through many years (and even til this day), dark skin women are considered ‘outed’ in this image and media-driven society, but to hear this slave-mentality-nonesense come from a black man, is beyond ignorant.
