Lil Wayne Denies Purposely Stomping on American Flag in ‘God Bless Amerika’ Video
Lil Wayne ventured home to New Orleans to shoot the video for ‘God Bless Amerika,’ a single from his new album, ‘I Am Not a Human Being II.’ A sneak peek of the visual has debuted, which shows the rapper walking all over the American flag.
If the video does not spark controversy, we can definitely expect the lyrics to. “My country ’tis of thee / Sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die / God bless Amerika / This ol’ godless Amerika,” Wayne raps.
This huge political statement comes after outrage over the Yong Money leader’s reference to Emmett Till, the black teen who was lynched for whistling at a white woman. The rhymer was forced to publicly apologize for his lyrics ( “Beat that p—- up like Emmett Till”) and subsequently lost his endorsement deal with Mountain Dew.
Wayne has denied he purposely stomped on the flag, using Twitter as his sounding board.
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
