Lil Wayne's 'Karate Chop' Remix, Emmett Till Lyrics Among One Of Many Problems (CARTOON)

lil wayne karate chop remix

Lil Wayne has worked up quite a media frenzy. After his controversial Emmett Till lyrics sparked backlash, ultimately resulting in the verse being pulled from the song, the rapper's troubles did not end there.

Weezy not only grabbed the attention of iconic singers like Stevie Wonder, but Emmett Till's family came forward as well, penning an open letter to the Grammy award-winner star.

And if that wasn't enough, Wayne took it one step further by making shocking claims about Miami Heat player, Chris Bosh's wife.

But does the rapper even care about the bad press or the people he's offending? Cartoonist Kevin Eason doesn't seem to think so, illustrating that Weezy may be more concerned about recreational drugs than his media firestorm?

What do you think? Is Lil Wayne phased by the backlash? Do you think he cares about the effect his words are having? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
