Dr. Boyce: Lil Wayne Feels that “Women Should Be Respected?” Negro, Are You Serious?

Someone needs to help me. I’m sitting here, going in and out of consciousness like the victim of a car accident, not able to believe my eyes and ears after hearing Lil Wayne say that he believes that “women should be respected.” If there is anything that anyone learns from hearing any Lil Wayne song for any small amount of time, it’s that he doesn’t give a f*ck about women, doesn’t have any use for women other than s*x, and would gladly shoot a woman in front of her child and put her dead body in the trunk of his car (I’m not kidding).
Part of me is glad that Lil Wayne made his remarks, since it gives us an opportunity to point out the sheer lunacy that has taken over commercialized hip-hop music, where the most ignorant and destructive among us are given the biggest microphones. If there isn’t one homicidal c**n willing to take the lopsided and exploitative contracts being offered by record labels, there is always another one willing to take his place. Like the recent “shackle slave shoe” that was going to be issued by Adidas, there are millions of us who insist on keeping our minds shackled with the very ignorance that has wired us to sing, dance and celebrate our own self-destruction.
I wrote the piece below for NewsOne.com once I saw what Wayne had said, but I’ll admit that while writing it, I was in the same cloudy brain space that Wayne occupies when he drinks and smokes himself into oblivion every morning before breakfast. I thought about the fact that I wish I could help my brother Wayne to realize that he and I are no different and come from the same place. It’s just that he made the decision to give up on himself and the people he loves, which I would never do.
But money is the most powerful drug being consumed by men like Lil Wayne. It can distort reality right in front of you and make you embrace negative energy to your very core. So, I have no interest in trying to negotiate with a drug addict, since that almost never works.
Without further ado, here’s what I said to News One:
I almost fell out of my chair, had a seizure and dropped into a massive coma when I read recent comments by the rapper Lil Wayne when making reference to his protege, Nicki Minaj. In a recent conversation with MTV, Weezy had the audacity to say that he believes that women should be respected.
“That’s a female; first and foremost Nicki Minaj is a female. I don’t know what anyone else believes, but I believe females deserve the ultimate respect at all times no matter, when or where or how,” Lil Wayne said to MTV.
Weezy made his peculiar remarks in response to a beef between Nicki and Hot 97 over comments made by DJ Peter Rosenberg. Rosenberg insulted Minaj in front of the Hot 97 audience, which is a no-no for anyone seeking to get Minaj to perform for their event. The comments led to Wayne pulling Minaj out of the Hot 97 Summer Jam. As a result, Weezy jumped out to defend Minaj’s honor in public.
