Lil Wayne responds to American Flag controversy in statement

Despite the huge dip in sales with I Am Not a Human Being 2, Lil Wayne still remains on top of the rap game with his music. Though the album came out two months ago, Lil Wayne continues to put out singles off the album. “God Bless Amerika” is the latest single Lil Wayne dropped off the project.

Recently, Lil Wayne was giving the single the music video treatment. For the music video, Lil Wayne returned to New Orleans. Fans were in for a treat, having their favorite son come back to do what he does best. At the music video shoot, Lil Wayne began dancing on the American Flag and it was caught on tape.

Barely halfway into the year, Lil Wayne has gotten caught up in numerous controversial stories and this one was among the most-disappointing. Choosing not to ignore this one, Lil Wayne has immediately released a statement about what happened. Although he danced on the flag, Wayne said it was not his intention to disrespect anyone.

Read the official statement below:

It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled “God Bless Amerika”. The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed that behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America. In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground. In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up. I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don’t get that chance. That’s their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That’s who I’m speaking for in this song.
