Lil Wayne sat down for an interview with Nightline and got very candid regarding his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement – once he figured out what it was.

Initially, he said that it “sounds weird,” because he didn’t know “you put a name on” what’s been going on (as far as racial injustices in the nation). He went on to say, “It’s not a name. It’s not ‘whatever, whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot for a fucked up reason.”

When asked if he felt connected to the movement at all, he said this (among other things), “I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothing to do with me.”

His controversial and confusing statements come after he told the story of the White man who saved his life when he shot himself as a kid, ultimately framing the way he would view race in America as an adult.
