Future on Lil’ Wayne’s now infamous “Emmitt Till” lyric:
“(Lil Wayne) did bring light, in a positive way, to what happened. Even though they might have thought it was negative, he brought positive energy to the situation because a lot of people don’t know, my dad didn’t even know who Emmett was. He’s thinking I’m talking about Emmitt Smith”
Future’s dad also named him Nayvadius. So, his ignorance makes sense.
