Lil Wayne’s ‘Nightline’ Full Interview: Watch Lil Wayne Say He’s A Rich Gangbanger, Black Lives Matter Sounds Weird, ‘My Life Matters To My B******’ [Video]

The Lil Wayne interview on Nightline, which aired shortly after midnight, in a segment called “Wayne’s World” on Nightline, began receiving blowback on Twitter as soon as the following snippet was released. Lil Wayne ended up storming out of the Nightline interview after talk turned to the Black Lives Matter movement, as seen below. Nightline reporter Lindsey Davis interviewed Lil Wayne, in an interview that seemed to turn sour, but ended with Lil Wayne still calling his Nightline interviewer “ma’am,” even as Lil Wayne told Davis she would be foolish to feel connected to something she wasn’t connected to, like the Black Lives Matter movement.

As expected, with Lil Wayne telling Nightline viewers that he did not feel connected to the Black Lives Matter movement, such a statement caused Lil Wayne’s segment to become pretty popular on social media. The full Lil Wayne Nightline interview can be seen below.

In that full interview with Nightline, Lil Wayne could be seen pulling out his red scarf and eventually talking about being a gangbanger, not a politician. Lil Wayne seemed to grow frustrated with the Nightline interview and the line of questioning, as it took a political turn. Lil Wayne’s previous controversial statements about the rapper feeling that he doesn’t see racism because so many of his fans are white were also shown in the Nightline interview.

Even before the controversial Black Lives Matter question and Lil Wayne’s even more controversial answer aired on Nightline at 12:35 a.m. ET, feedback began flowing into Twitter.

Some folks began to remind Lil Wayne of his own lyrics with certain people wondering aloud how Lil Wayne could make such a statement on Nightline. Videos of Lil Wayne himself chanting “Black Lives Matter” at a concert began to crop up on YouTube as well.

Others quipped that Lil Wayne must be on drugs and not know what he was saying on Nightline. Lil Wayne has been known to rap a lot about lean — a Codeine-fueled drink — and carry around his signature white cup. Earlier in the year, Lil Wayne suffered seizures, as reported by the Inquisitr.

It was a Nightline interview that featured Lil Wayne turning against his Nightline interviewer, with Lil Wayne asking how he could feel connected to a Black Lives Matter movement that he doesn’t know much about. Lil Wayne noted on Nightline that his own life matters and that he’s black, so black lives obviously matter to the folks who’ve made him very rich and successful.

On Nightline, fans of Lil Wayne who cried and said they are going to marry Lil Wayne were shown as they waited in line to receive his autograph.

Lil Wayne told Nightline viewers that he knew Black Lives Matter was about police violence and shootings and the like, a topic that Lil Wayne, who has survived being shot himself whilst growing up in a rough area of New Orleans, is very familiar with.

However, Lil Wayne spoke of himself being a rich black person and that obviously the nation knows that black lives matter to whites and other people, simply because Lil Wayne is rich, which seemed to be Lil Wayne’s implications during his Nightline interview.

Lil Wayne received lots of reminders of his own lyrics after the Nightline interview began to make the news. Lil Wayne’s @LilTunechi account got plenty of attention after storming out of the Nightline interview.

“I’m a slave for your ear.”

Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter was discovered by Birdman and all these years later, Lil Wayne is a father of four who told Nightline that he is misunderstood. Lil Wayne said on Nightline that he must answer to his mom.

“There’s God, there’s my family, there’s my kids…”

Nightline and their journey with Lil Wayne began well before the controversial interview, at a skate park. Lil Wayne invited Nightline to a concert, so the Nightline interview didn’t just begin with one evening.

Gone Till November is the name of Lil Wayne’s memoir that traverses his journey in prison.

Black Lives Matter isn’t a movement that has Lil Wayne as its champion.

“Do you separate yourself from it?”

“I ain’t no mother***** politician.”
