Mountain Dew Drops Lil Wayne Over Offensive Emmett Till LyricsPosted: May 3, 2013
Lil Wayne has been dropped by Mountain Dew for his offensive lyrics about Emmett Till in the song “Karate Chop” by Future, according to TMZ.
“Pop a lot of pain pills, ’bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels. Beat that p*ssy up like Emmett Till,” rapped in the song, which leaked onto the internet in February.
The Till family, angered by the lyrics and lack of an apology recently said they would go after his endorsement deal with the company and urged fans not to attend his upcoming tour.
