Lil Wayne "Karate Chop" Remix: Pulled Due to Emmett Till Reference

by at . Comments

Getting ejected from the Heat game is the least of Lil Wayne's problems this week.

His remix of Future's "Karate Chop," which features Weezy making a degrading reference to Emmett Till, has been pulled by Epic Records.

Many were up in arms over the lyrics about Till, an African-American teen from Chicago who was beaten and shot to death in the South in 1955.

"We regret the unauthorized remix version of Future's `Karate Chop,' which leaked online and contained hurtful lyrics," the label said in a statement.

"Out of respect for the legacy of Emmett Till and his family and the support of the Rev, Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., we are going through great efforts to [take it down]."

The Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation's Facebook page (named after Emmett's mother) declared that Epic CEO L.A. Reid had contacted the family to apologize:

"Mr. Reid stated the song was leaked out and he had not heard the lyrics."

"He is a man of integrity that values our family's legacy and wouldn't allow such heinous usage of Emmett Till's name or dishonor his memory."

"We have yet to hear from Lil Wayne's camp and he is the one that said it! It was all I could do to hold back my tears while engaged in conversation."

"Thank you Mr. Reid for now I can exhale."

The "Karate Chop" remix can still be listened to (for now) online. At the 3:14 mark in the song, Wayne says he'll "Beat that p--sy up like Emmett Till."

Listen to it while you can, if you even want to.

Alright when this dude raps he spits nonsense always coming up with lines that don't make any sense I doubt he even knows what he's saying so I doubt he meant it seriously but it was still stupid to say. Maybe now he'll realize he's not that good and stop making trash music
