Lil Wayne Called Out by Young Fans [VIDEO]

A group of young girls recently recorded a musical critique of Lil Wayne’s lyrics. On a song called “Letter to Lil Wayne,” the group, Watoto From The Nile, denounce Weezy’s songs as being misogynistic and implore him to show respect to the fairer sex. According to CNN, the girls range in age from 9 to 10.

Rapping to the beat of Wayne’s “I’m Single” the girls proceed to blast the Young Money chief for “calling women out of their name.”

“This song is disturbing,” scolds one of the lyrics, “Please, Mr. Wayne can you stop the hurting?” The “Single” rework also takes Weezy to task for his drug references. Wayne has yet to react to the criticism.—Henry Adaso

    @ STUCKFRESH: You must not have any kids dickhead.

  • SHAKA LUTHER KANG

    So i guess Lil Wayne is the only artist they can come after for lyrics that berate women?

    They’re only doing this for attention.Why don’t they go after some of the videos being shown on 106 and park or MTV’s Jersey Shore for the treatment of women.Or how about mainstream shows like 2 and a half men or How I Met Your Mother?

    This is an epic fail on their part.I really hope they get the attention they desperately needs.Blame every ill in the world on hip hop music.That’s some dumb shit.

  • N C

    Why are these girls parents letting them listen to Wayne?

  • boxerriely

    I think i have to agree with most of the other comments. Weezy’s music is not intended for kids. Please parent educate your kids keep music like this away from them. I like listening to this type of music, I dont take it literally. And I have young kids. They are not allowed to listen. To me this video doesnt seem to come from the kids mouths, but adults staging the whole thing. Publicity stunt, and not a very good one.

  • WTF

    First and only, who in the hell are these kids parents to let the kids listen to his music? I think the parents need their asses kicked.

  • RappyB

    Wow, this is sad. Alright, Not a big lil wayne fan but let the dude say what he wants. If your dumb enough to actually “cut a nikka” just because you listened to Steady Mobbin then you are an idiot. Wayne even says he’s not trying to be a role model in an interview. And really get off that drug hating ish. Been listening to Cudi for four years now, thats the same amount of time I’ve been drug free. Haters, don’t quit your day job.

  • Devin Byrd

    These dumb bitches don’t realize that Wayne’s music isn’t meant for their age group. It’s aimed at guys and girls about 14 and up. And instead of calling out the way he raps and acts, can’t we just appreciate the lyrical mastery that Weezy displays in EVERY FREAKIN’ SONG? I mean come the fuck off it man! Besides, these girls are too young to understand what wayne talks about in his music anyway! And I’m telling you, These girls aren’t gonna make wayne switch his style up. I mean I don’t do what wayne raps about, but I listen to it and enjoy it. Wayne is a titan of the rap game. And some dumbass little girls aren’t gonna change that fact.

    • Kiki

      These dumb bitches.. This is exactly why we need this song. You are calling little girls dumb bitches. Lil Wayne songs may not be age appropriate for them but it is for you and look at how the disrespect is influenced. Its a domino affect and you are just one domino down

      • New

        Yeah Kiki

      • Meditationist

        absolutely, way too much negativity is pumped in the media.
        If anything i support what they’re trying to say, I want nothing to do with the present day hype.

    • Don mcCaine

      this devin is a wayne stan (lyrical mastery, titan in the game). stanning so hard he/she’s dissing adolescent women. clean yourself up youngin’…

    • ol boy

      u a real fuck boy fa dissing them lil girls sucka ass nigga

    • thoreauly77

      LOL at “lyrical mastery”!

      dude is budget.

      I stopped reading after “these dumb bitches”..THEY’RE KIDS YOU LIMP NUT! I hope when you try to have kids yo shit turn black and crumble off. You don’t deserve to procreate you fuck ass nigga. GTFOH!

    • RJ II

      It would make sense for them to come after Wayne, because he is the biggest artist in the genre. As far as parents keeping their kids from listening, his music is everywhere on the radio, BET, tv commercials. The sad thing is if these little girls wanted to be a part of hip hop they almost can’t.

  • Des

    Love it..

  • MamaMia31

    It’s all about Freedom of Expression. Lil Wayne’s musiq is Rated R. At the end of the day Parents Use Discretion on what your kids do. I don’t expect today’s Rap artist to Raise my 13 yr old kid. And for the kids putting out this Kudos to you, however his musiq isn’t Meant for those young listeners- such as urselfz…

  • Stevew247365

    One Word – - – Explicit

  • http:www.robbinthehood/facebook.com cookie jackson

    do not blame lil wayne for these’s lil girl’s listening to his music…BLAME these’s lil girl’s momma for leting them even listen to lil wayne SONG’S…!!!

  • msthea

    he gonna make a song called “i cant tell u what to listen to, that ur parents job” now

  • ol boy

    ay that devin dude is a pure dummy how and why in tha hell wolud u call lil girls bitches u tha bitch nigga, ol lil wanye dick rinding ass faggot. kids are off limits dumb ass.

  • murder mami

    yo b somebody tryna sign these kids and get them some exposure at the expense of weezy. thats the real exploitation going on here. maybe young money will sign em lol

  • Don mcCaine

    it’s a SOCIETY problem…not so much the parents…let’s not forget some of these parents out there are KIDS THEMSELVES…

    many parents are at work, while the kids are in the hands of TEENAGE babysitters, daycare, after school programs…while the cars, radio and TV are playing Wayne songs…kids can get their hands on a nudie book left in the street, is that the parents’ fault?

    there was a time where rap wasn’t played until 8pm or even later on radio…this issue is WAAAAYYYYY bigger than wayne

  • Toni

    Another case of parents trying to profit from there children. If they really have an issue against the language, lyrics, etc., I believe they should have written a letter directly to Wayne. I am not a big fan of Wayne but I have to call it how I see it.

  • YES!!!!!

    YES!!! This is awesome. Good stuff. Someone needed to say it. Too bad that a couple young girls are the only ones who have the balls to do it. Ya’ll can hate all u want sayin that its grown folk music, but u dont have to curse in rap and talk about women like that and mention drugs to make it good. Listen to Da T.R.U.T.H and Ambassador. Awesome. Lecrae, 116 clique.

  • king of tha trill

    His CDs say parental discretion is advised…why are they even listening to his ish ?

  • Unknown

    I’m sorry but I have to say that I can’t blame the parents for whatever song of lil wayne that they heard…in the society that we live in you can go almost anywhere and hear lil wayne or some kind of music like that blasting. My mama didn’t allow me to listen to that type of music either when I was young, but in some kind of way I always heard some of every kind of rap music

  • zzz

    it’s not like he’s going up to a women on the street and calling her a bitch. if you don’t respect yourself i’m not gonna respect you. women that just fling themselves around at men are bitches.

  • Tash

    It bout time someone said something!

  • Devin Byrd

    Ok, what if somebody made a song like this about tupac, or nas, or eminem? Yall would be jumping on who ever made the video too. It is what it is man. I grew up listening to Wayne back when he was with the hot boyz and got to know a lot of his early shit. And I’ve followed him through his career. And I’m not just a Weezy fan. I also love Eminem, tupac, biggie, Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, and a lot of others. I just think It’s time everyone including the kids that made this video, to stop critisizing every little thing he does. Just let the man make his music. And if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it. And besides, isn’t it the parents’ job to make sure their children don’t hear any of his material? So in essence, it’s there fault for letting thier daughters hear his music. And you know maybe if there has been some better parenting, maybe we wouldn’t be on here having this discussion. But who am I to say how you should raise your kids? Even liking Wayne as much as I do, I don’t always agree with the content of his music. That’s just my opinion.

      ^ and you’re still taking up for wayne. do you know these young women? you immediately went to discredit them. what if they did just hear a Wayne verse and decided to do this video. there are smart children out there, heard of honor rolls?

      and what if their parents actually were behind them to do this? even if it is for promo, i would rather this than another 6’7′ freestyle…if it was another grownup, they would be considered haters, if it was another rapper, they need a buzz.

      and asking about the parents makes no sense, when people damn well know on a daily basis there are PLENTY of things kids are exposed to, even when the PARENTS are THERE. There are parents at work when their kids are messing around on the comment sections spewing racial stuff and cursing.

      it don’t matter which rapper they would have targeted, it’s a SOCIETY issue, this is what the collective needs to comprehend.

  • Corbin

    These girls are brave man, they should be commended for their efforts. dropping a positive message is always a good thing. and you and i know its not really gonna change a whole lot but at least they tried.
    And for the people asking why they targeting weezy, why not snoop, dre, wu-tang, etc. They Are! but obviously they can’t write a song and do a video to every single rap artist out there so they chose to take on the Biggest, Most Popular, Most Air Time and T.V. Time artist in the game right now. its actually a pretty brilliant target for them to choose, these little girls are on their Sun Tzu – Art of War shit. lol

  • De-S

    this is whatever, but every rapper has bashed women in some type of way… we saw this same type of shit with eminem circa 200, when mmlp supposedly made white kids shoot up schools. lil wayne is an artist like everyone else..

  • MR2turbo

    why don’t some of you all just shut the fuck up. this isnt about or geared towards any other rappers. lil wayne is an idol that many people look up to especially young kids. how many of you fucking idiots out there had an idol at that age? When you look up to someone at that age and you realize they’re not who you thought they were, it comes with great dissapointment because 8, 9, 10 year olds are innocent. lil wayne can say what he wants its his music, but this video was respectful to him and believe it or not these girls make better points then some of you fucking morons out there. I’m behind this video.

  • http://facebook.com/chingchangwallawallabingbang JESSICA DURAN

    I understand completely what these lil girls are saying, & IM GLAD that they express it. You go lil mamas!!! & EVEN I FEEL LIKE THAT. I love wayne but it aint ku the way he refers to woman, c’mon now, lets be real. N for the people talkin shit bout these lil girls, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOUR DUMBASS?! Its sad the world is filled with idiots. FYI SHE WASNT DISSIN WAYNE! It was a PLEA to wayne! EVEN Wayne will understand that! Guaranteed!!!

  • ur mom

    where the hell are the parents at? This isn’t Wayne’s fault. He’s rapping, you can choose (or maybe, idk, your parents) whether or not you want to listen.

  • MindState

    Okay now I dont cosign any name calling to any 9 and 10 year old kids, that’s not what’s up but i will say that i find it hard to believe that they just thought up and concieved this all on their own without any influence from their parents. I think it’s good that they have someone in their life to teach them to respect themselves for real but I’d be amazed if this was all their idea without any grooming or coaching or whatever..

    Now i’m not the biggest Wayne fan in the world at all but I dont see why he is being singled out when there are plenty of other artists talking about the same shit Wayne be talkin about.
    They should’a went at the wack state of hip-hop in general and told these labels and the people to raise the bar back up to where it used to be in terms of just straight up quality and originality in the music. I can barely listen to the radio (here in georgia anyway..yeah I know) anymore. Shit hurts my ears..

  • carter

    that is awesome, 9 and 10 year olds.. how could you hate on something done as well and as intentional as that?

  • Akin Jide

    We’ve all known individuals who’ve been so fervently devoted to a particular assumption that they were completely incapable of accepting any opinion fundamentally at odds with their impassioned belief.

    Such folks tenaciously cling even to proven falsehoods because conceding that they’ve been living a lie is a psychological leap just too painful to make.

    I’m convinced a similar phenomenon is occurring in a collective way, relative to the American people’s view of their nation’s unquestionably deteriorating status and the role of media.

    Despite being awash in profound injustice and resulting inequity, causing worsening unemployment, hunger, homelessness, medical neglect, poor school performance, infrastructure decay, etc., we can’t bring ourselves to acknowledge that our capitalist way of life, made thoroughly predatory by unchecked greed, has irredeemably failed.

    Our popular culture is absolutely depraved, giving free rise to rip-off schemers and shameless charlatans of all sorts, but we don’t associate the sleaze on our radios, television sets and our email in-boxes with a complete breakdown of social responsibility, not to mention common decency.

    Although it would be relatively easy to connect the proliferating dots representing various evidence of ethical and material collapse in America, we don’t pick up our figurative markers and draw the requisite lines that would clearly reveal the big picture.

    That keeps us focused on just those few, glaring shams and scandals that the mainstream media find sufficiently titillating to cover. We’re consequently led to think that they’re isolated, atypical instances, not the iceberg’s tip of wholesale dissolution.

    How has hip hop been used to perpetuate the madness

    It kills me the way people use the excuse that parents should protect their children from adulterated material. As if a parent jumps out of the bushes whenever a child sees something vulgar or offensive. You can raise your child with good morals and be supportive an your child can still be corrupt from outside influences (Montana Fishburne).

    These girls simply made a video to say that they find some of Wayne’s lyrics offensive. Wayne has freedom of expression in his lyrics just as these girls have freedom of expression to protest them. I’m sure that these girls had some help from their parent to formulate this response. But the initial reaction to the lyrics could’ve been created by them and that’s what actually matters. A little girl can be offended in being called a bitch or whatever just as much as a little black kid can be offended by a white person calling them nigger. How they respond is completely different to how they felt to the incident.

    When I was younger I bought many parental advisory albums and no one in the store prevented me from buying them. I’ve been to parties and many public venues and people would play rap with adulterated material in front of children and no one would object. So like someone said earlier children can have proper parenting and can still be exposed to offensive material.

    But what annoys me about this isn’t the people attacking these girls to defend Wayne but thefact that no one has been able to construct a reasonable response for Wayne to use such language. This is the reason why rap today is still often criticized and recieves little respect from people. It isn’t the fact that rappers depict violence, vulgar language, and sex without any explaination except “it happens in other forms of media”or “if you don’t like it, don’t listen to it”. I’m not saying Wayne is wrong here or that he shouldn’t use that language but if a rapper honestly wants to be considered an artist and consider rap as artistic music then Wayne and all rappers should own up to their lyrics and accept criticism. Wayne doesn’t have to even respond to the girls but he does have to admit that his music can be offensive and young children are not completely isolated from hearing it.

  • eastbeast

    SOMEBODY OLDER TOLD THEM TO MAKE A SONG ABOUT WAYNE FOR THEY COULD GET ATTENTION AND TRY TO BLOW ALL THESE RAPPER OUT HERE WAYNE THE HOTTEST SO THAT WHO THERE AFTER

  • whysoignorant

    Its really about all rappers, but if you aim at the highest rapper youre sure to get a response.

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    real Spit.

    Lil wayne lyrics are diffrent from those back in the day. 1. radio singles back in the day were “radio friendly” Nowadays, the radio let anything GO. 2. Did you guys recall his peformance on BET for Every girl in the world? Dude brought up lil girls on the stage. There has to be a disconnect between music and real life.

  • EL

    that was a fuck boy comment from devin tru..but come on man!! its not for there age.

  • ELL

    and @ nicholasdelorejo,
    what do u mean by if rappers want this to be considered as an artistic artform?? because so far i know HIPHOP is an artistic artform..i do understand what u mean but thats bullshit..hiphop dont need no confirmation by anybody!!!

  • http://xxlmagazine word2yomomma

    not really taking up for lil wayne cause he is soooooooooo over rated and not worth the hype ,im 33 years old and have been listening to hip hop since i was 11 , and im am trying to figure out why the fuck everyone thinks he is the first to sing about such things as drugs and women ? thats all rap is about most of the time, unless they sing about bling? every rap song you listen to is about women ,drugs , guns ,and big stupid fucking rims.. so who gives a fuck about pointing weezal out ? people just act like this shit just started , and if certain people didnt drive around in their cars bumping rap music with their kids in the ride with them and were more responsible we wouldnt have this issue.

  • yaheard

    theres a reason why his albums have a PARENTAL ADVISORY label on em u fuckin dumbasses

    • CRJMajor

      That’s not the point they’re trying to make here. Even if there was a Parental Advisory label, he’d still be degrading women in his lyrics. That’s how I feel.

  • Ghost

    come on kids wayne is a gangsta he does and says these things for a reason ..and this is 2011 live tha world now n not bak then so stop listening to music yur not suppoed to listen to.

  • CRJMajor

    Oh shut the hell up. I bet you were the main ones sneaking and listening to rap when you were their ages. But guess who’s actually doing something about it!!! Leave the girls alone and hop off their vaginas. They DO have a point. And if they WANT to be a part of hip hop they CAN, don’t you ever in your life tell a child they can’t do anything. Look at Soulja Boy. He raps about bammer hammer and dancing. WTF? You goin to hell for messing with these kids. I hate to wanna get spiritual all of a sudden but it’s just in me. Don’t get mad because they’re doing the right thing. Nobody else wanna step to Wayne so I’m glad they did.. AND I’LL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO POST THAT VIDEO ON MY FB!
