Here’s your random web gem of the day: Two young girls, ages 9 and 10, decided to rap an open letter to Lil Wayne about his derogatory lyrics about women. Calling themselves Watoto From The Nile, they have utilized the beat and video style from Weezy’s “Single” to create “Letter To Lil Wayne.” The track centers around their wanting the rapper to “stop all the hurtin'” and treating women so poorly in his lyrics. Or as the 9-year-old girl says over the woozy instrumental while scribbling in her notepad, “My daddy tells me I’m a queen/ But you call women other things/ it makes me mad/ I can’t pretend.” I can’t help but imagine where this came from and who’s really behind it, but here’s the message that was attached to the YouTube video. The errors in spelling are their own.
“Letter to Lil Wayne” is a direct statement of justice from Watoto From The Nile. Growing tired and fed up with the constant degredation of Black women inside of Hip Hop music, they voice thier views and opinions on this melodic track.
