A Letter to Lil’Wayne From Three Black Girls

“Letter to Lil Wayne” is a direct statement of justice from Watoto From The Nile. Growing tired and fed up with the constant degradation of Black women inside of Hip Hop music, they voice their views and opinions on this melodic track.

In solidarity with other bloggers, I must share this video entitled, “Letter to Lil’ Wayne.” The video features three young black girls speaking out against famed rapper Lil’ Wayne in the hopes that their viral video will force Lil’ Wayne to retract his stance on drugs and objectifying black women. Honestly, as of late, I have been inspired by black girls like Willow and even the brown skin Muppet from Sesame Street singing about loving her nappy hair. I like how new media and media is being harnessed to tell a black girl’s story on her own terms.
