Lil Wayne’s 7-minute tirade on “Misunderstood” about Sharpton is stirring up a wild storm. As if that’s not what it was intended for.

    Well I’ma be gangsta and say FUCK ALL HUMANS!! WE ARE NOT THE SAME I AM A MARTIAN.

  • Doc Think

    @23. FSU student– you are so right. A career in spin tell me that when he says 50% approve, he is rounding up. Not something that I would hang MY hat on.

  • Weezyfbabyluva

    First off, let me say that i agree with Lil’ Wayne. he has just as much right to speak his mind as any one else does. just cuz he is famous doesnt mean hes not gonna have an opinion like everybody else. i mean all Al Sharpton does is step in calling people racist. and like lil wayne says he isnt MLK or Jesse Jackson. what has he done other than make things worse and bring more controversy on the subject by saying somebody is racist. Lil Wayne has the right to say whatever the hell he wants if u don’t like it don’t listen 2 it. not like he cares .its not like Al Sharpton cares if u like him or not either.(if your white)

  • KALA

    Well my opinion is that al sharpton has his opinion and lil wayne does to. But I agree with Lil Wayne on this situation becuase growin up in da hood aint shit nice, and if you listen to the song carefully you’ll proably understand. I just don’t understood why al sharpton has a problem with his ryhmes cause to me they be raw but I say if mr. Sharpton doesn’t like it he shouldn’t listen to it. But I agree with Lil Wayne but I kind of understand where both of them come from though.

    So dis is wats up 2 me and WEEZY((LIL WAYNE)) IS DA SHIT SO FORGET WAT SOMEBODY GOT 2 SAY

  • rachel

    in my opinion lil wayne is right about everything in that song.

    I mean, given the fact that humanity, well, good humanity rather
    To me, is helpin one another, no matter your color or race
    But this guy, and people like him
    They’d rather speculate before they informate, if that’s a word, heh heh

    thats whats up.
    fuck al sharpton.

    lil wayne’s an a class retard, comparin himself to Malcolm-N-Martin….who played in a huge part in millions of black people not gettin lynched in 2008.

    He claims to be the bes MC alive….based on what record sales, the same fans were fans of 50 until his album flopped, before that they were fans of the Game, before that Ja-Rule, Before that DMX….Fans of these idiots chopnchange every year dependin whose got the biggest rims…Retards.

    What Happend to PE, EPMD, Gangstarr, J-Live, Pete Rock, Nice-N-Smooth, PerceeP (none a U probably no sh!t about these guys as U know sweet FA about Hip-Hop)these artits have had 100,000 fans each for the last 20yrs thats Phukin incredible, Lil Payne will be done an over just like every other vertically challenged embarresment.

    people are starting to get on my nerves with trying to blame rap music as an excuse for them not raising their kids properly. RAp music is music just like any other but that doesn’t mean that parents can’t prevent their children from listening. you should be getting on the parenting in American and leave the rappers alone.. they are not saying shit that people can’t hear in the streets everyday in the HOOD or other places. Come on now be for real.. If you don’t like rap music and the messages in them or words just stop listening. It’s not that hard. Change the radio station, Stop buying the cd’s, stop downloading the music. How can you complain about something but you keep listening. You have options in life and its not the rappers faught because you can control your little spoiled ass brat. Wayne baby keep doing ya thang. If you listen to some of his songs.. some of them have a positive message its not all cursing. If he wanna call a woman a bitch he gotta right, if he wanna say hoe he can.. leave him alone. Al Sharpton bored ass just want something to do. His fame is being minimized and he’s tryna keep his name in the media.. You smart muthafucka.

    lil wayne is the shit and al sharpton needs to get the fuck up out his toilet

  • pimpin

    yo Freddie van der Hyllerrs u dont know shit lil wayne is the best rapper alive

  • ( nihya ]*

    tha ppl who qet upset about weezy speakinq his mind are dumb. bascially it’s his oppinion. he said he didn’t really qive a damn what ne one said about it. wanye is a qenius and rappers express their selves through rap so wanye didn’t like al sharpton so he spoke on it tha same way ludacris expressed himself about oprah. wayne is very talented and like i tell my friends and all weezy haters;; u cant knock him for doin him he is tha hottest rapper in tha game period. so if he wants to say fuck al sharpton over a beat then he can its called tha 5th amdment he can say wat tha fcuk he wants.

  • ( nihya ]*

    oh and antonio is a hater.. but dhats his oppinion… his gay ass
    can drink a rat posion milk shake.. sayin lil wayne is an idiot is like sayin soulja boy is tha next jay-z…

    weezy is tha best rapper alive
    also yall qo listen to his new mixtape tha leek III featurin his hot track thinkin of you ft. tyga!!!

  • Kendyeezy

    I honestly think that Lil Wayne is right. If Al Sharpton doesn’t like rap music there are many other options out there for him to listen to. Weezy is only practicing his right of freedom of speech and if he don’t like Al Sharpton, shit, fuck Al Sharpton. Who is he to say who is good or bad? And I appreciate him saying the part about Al Sharpton not being MLK…he is NOT MLK and he needs to realize that because I don’t think that he has made half of the difference that King ever did, and I don’t think he ever will.
    I love Weezy!

  • Mrz.Pisces

    Lil Wayne and Al Sharpten are both welcomed to their opinion, but Al had no right to come at Lil Wayne the way he did. All he was talking bout is how the hood isnt the same, and how they are putting crack dealers in jail, but not rapist,murders,ect…All i have to say is that im a huge supporter of Lil Wayne, and Al Sharpten,but Al needs to coo it down a bit with trying to change hip hop. Its not the rappers fault that half of the woman they deal with likes to be called Hoes,Bitches,Sluts ect…Its the woman’s fault cause they are not tellin them “hey im a lady.” Lil Wayne is just speaking the truth,and Al Sharpten needs to stop tryin to change hip hop and leave it how it is…

  • WayneSucks

    Lil Wayne is easily the worst entertainer in history. He just feeds off of the uneducated ignorant people that follow him. His success simply shows how ignorant americans are.

  • Dramell Hogan

    Lil wayne did the right thing by going at AL SHARPTON. If u dont like rap dont listen to it as simple as that. There is a bunch of other types of music that people can listen to. So Al Sharpton can suck a fat one with his fake perm lol.

  • SoCalBby

    the people on here make me laugh… all this “you dont get it if ur not from the hood” shit is completely FALSE. i grew up in the suburbs, but in my town the suburbs can be less than a block away from the “hood”. i get it.. i understand the struggles and the hole drug dealer vs. sex offender concept. the problem is not ignorance of wat actually goes down in the hood, the problem is that people dont care. these politics such as al sharpton arent trying to understand every hustlers situation, they dont care about the condition of their lives. the only way were gonna see any improvement in everyones lifestyles, every race/gender included, is through compassion. “Open up your heart people.” thats where we all need to start. stop the hating and shit talking, stop trying to say were misunderstood. we arent misunderstood, al sharpton just doesnt care to understand, he lives in his own world and sits on his own high horse above all the people who have to push to make a living, but that doesnt mean that us, living in the real world, need to reciprocate the hate… it doesnt make us any better than him.

  • delk

    dee23, No offense but your bringing up the race card. This post had nothing to do with white/black racisim. I agree that Blacks do get the hard side of a sentance some times but a white man that melest kids or murders someone will get hard time. Talkin years. And an ass whoopin from whoever when he gets out. but i do agree bout sharpton running his mouth and being a hypocrite.
