The family of Emmett Till simply wanted an apology from Lil Wayne after a song lyric offensively referenced their kin’s name.
On the unreleased remix of Future’s “Karate Chop,” Wayne rapped, “”beat the p—y up like Emmett Till.” The family of Till and others felt it was disrespectful to both the deceased teen as well as women.

Since, the rapper has not apologized, the Till family have told AllHipHop.com exclusively that they intend to pressure Lil Wayne’s sponsors, namely Mountain Dew.
Shortly, the Till Family are expected to make offensive moves forward to further address Wayne and Mountain Dew, a product of PepsiCo. A similar tactic by women’s group UltraViolet resulted in Reebok dropping Rick Ross from their campaign.
