The power of prayer is real, and so is the power of forgiveness. 

EXCLUSIVE BLOG: Dwayne Michael Carter Has Stolen Emmett Till’s Last Breath

Despite the Emmett Till controversy surrounding Lil Wayne’s “Karate Chop (Remix)” lyrics, Emmett Till’s family is lending their prayers to Lil Wayne for a speedy recovery. 

Lil Wayne made headlines when he suffered from multiple seizures last week, landing him in the hospital. After spending six days in the intensive care unit at Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Hospital, Lil Wayne has now been released, but the hearts of many still go out to his final recovery. 

DETAILS: A MESS! Emmett TIll’s Family Says Lil Wayne’s “Karate Chop” Lyrics Are “Dishonorable” 

On the Facebook page of the Mamie Till Mobley Memorial Foundation, an organization founded in honor of Emmett Till’s life, the family posted their concerns for Lil Wayne, stating: 

“Certainly the family of Emmett Till is praying for Lil Wayne’s recovery. . . Wayne IS a HuMAN, just as Emmett Till was.”

Despite Lil Wayne’s disregard for Emmett Till’s legacy, it’s nice to see Emmett Till’s family turn the other cheek and support Lil Wayne.
