Heavens to Betsy, Ross. Lil Wayne returned to New Orleans to film his new video, “God Bless Amerika”. During the shoot, he continued his performance with the American flag beneath him. The move was deemed unpatriotic. In statement given to karencivil, Weezy says that he didn’t intend on offending his country.
It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled “God Bless Amerika”. The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed that behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America. In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground. In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up. I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don’t get that chance. That’s their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That’s who I’m speaking for in this song.
Tonight, Hov took things to another level by announcing his new album during the NBA finals, Magna Carta Holy Grail, due out July 4th.
