Lil Wayne sent a letter of apology to the family of Emmett Till for disparaging his name in a rap lyric, but was the apology sufficient? Or even an apology?
Lil Wayne's "Karate Chop" lyrics contained a degrading reference to the teen, whose 1955 murder became a watershed moment for the civil rights movement.
"It has come to my attention that lyrics from my contribution to a fellow artist's (Future's) song has deeply offended your family," Wayne wrote in the letter.
Said the rapper, who suffered another seizure this week in L.A., "As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure."
