Two Girls Rap Open Letter To Lil Wayne

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.

LETTER TO CRYBABIES

If you Little girls and boys don't like Dwayne Carter's music, just take a good look a thing called FREEDOM OF SPEECH and maybe If you don't like it you cry baby people just shouldn't listen to his music, DUHH! Lil Wayne is a RAPPER okay? the things he says in his songs is to entertain and make money, its his JOB, and he gives back to the people of the world and he gives back to his fans. So its best to just get off his back.... Just like Lil Wayne has said himself... ''You Can Love Me Or Hate Me... I swear It Won't Make Me Or Break Me''

First of all, kudos to the girls for taking a stand for what they believe in, not everyone poses the courage to say what they feel. Lil Wayne, also posses the courage to voice his opinions. So, although the young girls disagree with Mr. Lil Wayne’s choice of nicknames for women, it is evident that they have something in common. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions & rights. The theme of self respect is encouraging. Women do deserve to be treated with the utmost respect, however so do ALL other people. In Lil Wayne’s words, “…good humanity rather to me, is helpin' one another, no matter your color or race”. The reality of the matter is that this world we live in is no perfect place so there will always be disagreements. The common ground between the girls & Lil Wayne is the freedom of speech in this great country! It is excellent to see the privilege being exercised. That is what makes everyone unique. A person’s use of words does not defy us. No one can take away anything that is instilled in one’s heart unless one allows it. It is unfair to persecute Lil Wayne. We all have the freedom to speak our minds.

I'm not saying the derogatory language is okay but I have two things to say to this....
1) almost all rappers use this language and stuff, so why call out only Wayne
2) Why are these little girls listening to Lil' Wayne anyway?? He says stuff they don't need to hear (obviously) so why do their parents let them listen to him.

I'm a huge Lil' Wayne fan but yeah he does have a "strong" vocabulary. So don't listen to it if your offend, or if your 9 and 10 years old. His CD's say parental advisory for a reason.

You are so right!!!! Everyone has a opinion, And these, young girls do to, because, they want to respect themselves, and all women, After all we are your Mother's sister's daughter, and wives, who love you, had you, and most raise you,by ourselves, And this is what, all rappers think about us. just to make a dollar, How sad, women wake up we really don't have to 'have' sons, now days, we can control them, by not having so many ungrateful beings.

I luv women and respect them. Cause that's how I was raised. But Lil Wayne does not repersent all men. So if his music offended u in any way,please don't listen to it point blank. He has the freedom of speach just like everyone else and if he happens to get paid for it ,oh well. Stay blessed all!
