Lil' Wayne Whip It Like A Slave

Just thought we take a look through the wonderful search power of the Internet to see if it's only Charlamagne, the morning host of 100.3 The Beat, who has come out against the lyrical content of Lil' Wayne's songs.

Let's take a look at one particular song about crack that's a YouTube sensation but thankfully not being played on the radio yet: I think it would be pretty hard to come up with an acceptable clean version of this song.

Lil’ Wayne (and Dem Franchise Boyz), Whip It Like A Slave,” and the Crisis of Coonery By Tolu Olorunda

-That Lil’ Wayne is an embarrassment to the rich legacies of musical excellence which paved the road for his rise to prominence is not a breakthrough. It’s a given. An irrefutable fact.

After listening to the latest youtube hit “Whip it “(Like a Slave), I wonder if such a rehab session would work on Lil Wayne? Naw, he’d probably just sit there with that spaced out permanent grin on his face sippin’ Sizzurp through a styrofoam cup and mumbling auto tune lyrics as visions of black death flash before his eyes.
