It was back in May when Lil Wayne issued a written apology to the family of Emmett Till after making a not-so-tasteful reference on Future’s “Karate Chop (Remix)” (“Beat that p*ssy up like Emmett Till”). However, the Till family were unhappy with the rapper’s letter as nowhere did it actually say he was sorry (“I would like to take a moment to acknowledge your hurt” was the closest he came).
During a performance of “Karate Chop” at a Nashville, Tennessee concert last week, though, Wayne finally offered a proper apology to the Till family. He replaced his controversial lyric to say, “I apologize to the family of Emmett Till.”
