Lil Wayne's "God Bless America" video is causing controversy ahead of its release. Footage of Weezy stomping on an American flag while shooting the video has hit the web. The song itself, off of Lil Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being II, features lyrics like: "My country, tis of thee / Sweet land of kill them all and let them die / So God bless America, this so Godless America."
I'm a big fan of Lil Wayne's, and totally get the artistic/"freedom of speech" angle... but it still doesn't sit well with me. America has made him a VERY wealthy man.
What do you think? Artistic or Obnoxious?
I didn't step on the flag on purpose! It's a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drop it's just there as I perform— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) June 18, 2013
Do you believe him?
