Embattled rapper Lil Wayne wants people to believe he didn't stomp on the U.S. flag during a video shoot for "God Bless Amerika" ... at least on purpose.

Despite the controversial lyrics to the song - and the fact he certainly looks like he's looking down on Old Glory several times - he claims he didn't see it.

Tunechi Tweeted, "I didn't step on the flag on purpose! It's a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drop it's just there as I perform."

Mmmyeah. Anybody buying that even for a second?

To us, it sounds about as heartfelt as his half-assed Emmett Till non-apology, but we welcome your take on the matter in the comments below, THGers.

Lil Wayne stomped on an American flag over the weekend.

He's filming a music video for "God Bless Amerika" in his hometown of New Orleans, and it all started off harmlessly enough, with Weezy rapping in front of the flag.

Old Glory is then released to the ground - already a big no-no, as we learned on Flag Day - at which point Wayne continues to rap, while stomping on it.

Check out the footage from Wayne's video shoot below:

The lyrics, believe it or not, are just as controversial, which isn't shocking from a man who infamously rapped about beating up a p---y like Emmett Till.

"My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika," raps the lightning rod that is Tunechi.

It's his constitutional right to do this, of course ... but that doesn't mean people will line up to defend him. We're anticipating quite the opposite in fact.

What's your take on the situation?

Nicki Minaj proved, with her raunchy performance at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, that she can be a lady on the streets and a freak on the stage.

She walked the red carpet in an elegant red gown, but oh how quickly things changed. The rapper gave Lil Wayne a lap dance, "High School" style.

Twerking like a woman possessed in her shredded leggings, midriff-baring crop-top, and high heels, she straddled and writhed against Weezy. Hard.

The big finish to Nicki Minaj's explicit twerk fest involved her completely bent over suggestively fanning her fingers between her legs. Check it out:

We haven't seen a "High School" twerking display like this since ... well, the Scripps Ranch twerk team video that got 33 high school kids suspended.

Lil Wayne, who has battled a serious health condition in recent months, says he can't feel seizures come on and doesn't feel anything when they do.

The rap star was hospitalized after an epileptic seizure episode that nearly killed him for a week this March, and then again for a day in late April.

How does it keep happening? For one thing, he doesn't see it coming at all.

Weezy opened up to MTV's RapFix Live on Wednesday about it, saying:

"I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital. I don't feel anything."

Trick Daddy and Lil Wayne are not big fans of each other, but Weezy's friend mentor Birdman has reportedly stepped in to quash this beef for good.

Lil Wayne went ballistic at a strip club last month after a dude in Trick's posse allegedly flicked a cigarette into the rapper's dreads at a Miami strip club.

Trick Daddy is bitter, claiming Tunechi got him blackballed from all the good strip clubs in Miami (really), leaving him to frequent butterface joints (really).

Moreover, Trick insists he didn't even do anything to Weezy.

Lil Wayne will no longer be representing Mountain Dew.

PepsiCo cut ties with its popular pitchman Friday over his controversial lyric mentioning 1950s civil rights martyr Emmett Till in the crudest of ways.

Weezy Live

"Beat that pu--y up like Emmett Till," the 30-year-old rapped on Future's "Karate Chop" remix, which was later pulled due to the offensive reference.

Weezy recently apologized for (well, acknowledged) the controversy in a letter to Emmett Till's family, but that apparently did not go far enough.

PepsiCo released a statement asserting that Weezy's "offensive reference to a revered civil rights icon does not reflect the values of our brand."

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."

Cedars-Sinai M.C. was the site of Lil Wayne's near-death seizure back in March after he suffered multiple severe seizures that almost took his life.

The rapper spent six days in the ICU.

Wayne later explained that he's an epileptic, has had these seizures since he was a kid and is totally fine. He Tweeted that he's okay today, too:

Hopefully, he takes precautions so that will truly be the case. Lil Tunechi may want to start paying closer attention to his medication and lifestyle.

Lil Wayne is laughing at reports that he's in dire straits following a $3.4 million judgment against him ... 'cause frankly, that's just a drop in the bucket.

The judgment stems from Weezy suing Quincy Jones III over a documentary.

QJIII sued back, claiming Wayne screwed him out of profits from the film about the rapper by Tunechi's frivolous suit. A California jury saw it Quincy's way.

As a result, LW was hit with a seven-figure judgment ... but it ain't no thing.

Lil Wayne and Trick Daddy rekindled their ongoing beef last night at a Miami strip club, and things nearly escalated into Drake-Chris Brown territory.

It all went down at King of Diamonds Wednesday when, according to sources in the club, Weezy "started to get a bad vibe from Trick Daddy's posse."

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
