Lil Wayne Delivers An Emotional Speech At The BET Awards

Published

on

Lil Wayne received the I Am Hip Hop Award at the 2018 BET Awards. The award puts the Lousiana native in elite company with the legends of Hip Hop.

A video played with artist like Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz speaking on Weezy’s legacy before Bun B and DJ Khaled handed him the award. Wayne walked on the stage with his mother Jacida Carter and his daughter Reginae Carter and delivered an emotional speech about his love for his family and his attempted suicide at the age of 12.

“I must give this award to the people who refused. What I mean by that [is] the people who refused to stop supporting me during all the…you already know. The people who refused to see me as haven’t put an album out in six years, four years. You guys respected me, you guys supported me. You came to every show. You respected every album, every feature. My family. My family refused, refused to stop motivating me. To stop treating me as if I am not the man. As if I am not the father who I am. As if I am not the person who I am. They refused to let me feel anything less. Please give it up to my family.”

For the next part of his speech, Weezy turned to his life-saving benefactor Uncle Bob, who also, as he saw it, refused to stop. In a heartfelt moment, Tunechi recalled the story of the day Uncle Bob saved his life after he attempted to shoot and kill himself at the age of 12.

“When I say, ‘refuse,’ there’s a man in New Orleans, his name is Uncle Bob,” Weezy begins in the early stages of a memorable anecdote. “He came into an apartment one day. He bust in the door, guns drawn—he saw nobody. He saw legs on the floor. It was my legs. He saw blood everywhere. Bunch of police hopped over me. He refused to do so. I never knew, I talked to him the other day, I never knew EMS was on the scene. He said EMS tried twice and they told him, ‘There’s nothing.’ He refused to let that die.”

Weezy continues, “He told his somebody, ‘Come drive this car. Forget a ambulance.’ He brought me to the hospital himself. He refused to wait, he kicked in the doors. He said, ‘You get whatever you gotta do and you make sure this child make it.’ Not only that, that day, Uncle Bob was a homicide detective. He was off on detail. He just heard the call and came. Not only did he refuse to sit, not only [didn’t] he give me to the doctors and leave, he refused to leave, he stayed and made sure that I made it.”

The ceremony was tapped for Jimmy Kimmel with Kimmel joined legendary producers Quincy Jones, Dr. Dre, 2 Chainz, BattleCat, Big Boy, George Lopez, Jeannie Buss, Jeezy, Pharrell Williams, T.I.,Ty Dolla $ign, Warren G and others were in attendance.

“Dr. Dre believed in me when I really wasn’t nothing and I’mma say that because I mean that ’cause I really didn’t know what I wanted to do,” he said. “When Dr. Dre gave me the opportunity, he really—he didn’t look at me like somebody that was less than him. He looked at me like an equal and we always been brothers from that day…that was real effective with me because, when you dealin’ with a star and you comin’ in as a nobody, it’s easy for the star to down look you or play you low, but for him to look at me even, that’s why we never said no to each other to this day because we always look at each other as brothers and we depend on each other and we need each other.”

Later in his speech, Snoop took the time to thank himself for the never giving up on his dreams.

“I want to thank me for believing in me,” he said. “I want to thank me for doing all this hard work. I want to thank me for having no days off. I want to thank me for never quitting. I want to thank me for always being a giver, and trying to give more than I receive. I want to thank me for trying to do more right than wrong. I want to thank me for just being me at all times.”

6ix9ine Arrested By ATF On Federal Racketeering Charges

Published

on

6ix9ine and his former manager have reportedly been arrested on racketeering charges.

According to TMZ, the ATF arrested 6ix9ine Sunday night in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shottie, at the same time. Both are facing racketeering and firearms charges.

6ix9ine is currently on probation, stemming from an October 2015 guilty plea to the use of a child in a sexual performance. Sentencing in the case dragged on for years until, last month, a New York judge gave him four years of probation and required him to complete community service, refrain from gang affiliation, and avoid future arrests.

This will surely put him behind bars for some time.

Stay posted.
