Lil Wayne caught some flak when he spoke about George Floyd last month and said people should stop blaming the entire police force for the killing of George Floyd. He then addressed some of the backlash on his Young Money radio show during a conversation with Killer Mike and explained why he felt that way.
On Friday, Weezy talked about the police again on Young Money Radio and said an officer helped him once, which is why he doesn't hate all cops.
"My life was saved when I was young," he said. "I was 12 or something, I think. Shot myself. I was saved by a white cop, Uncle Bob. So you have to understand...you have to understand the way I view police, period. I was saved by a white cop. There was a bunch of black cops that jumped over me when they saw me at that door, laying on the floor with that hole in my chest. He refused to. Those black cops jumped over me, and ran through the crib, and said, 'We found the gun, we found this, we found that.' He said, 'I found this baby on this floor I need to get to a hospital.' He didn’t wait for an ambulance. He took his car. He made somebody drive it, and he made sure that I lived."
Uncle Bob's real name is Robert Hoobler, who was fired from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff Department in 2012 for tasing a man while hurling racial epithets at him. So there's that.
What do you think about Wayne's stance on cops?
