Exclusive: Does Lil’ Wayne Really Have Beef With Brown Skinned Women???

- By Bossip Staff

We wrote it off as just a lyric when Lil Wayne said “Beautiful black woman, I bet that b*tch look better red” in his new song “Right Above.” But could the father of this beautiful brown-skinned girl really be color struck?

According to one of our readers, the answer is a hardy yes. Destiny, who describes herself as dark-skinned, says that derogatory statements made during a recent encounter with Wayne and his Young Money lackeys left her determined never to support the rapper again.

We met up with Mack Maine from Young Money, he then took us to a hotel a couple of other girls were there and so was Lil Wayne, Guda Guda, Lil Chuckee, and Birdman. When we entered the room Guda was like “Damn, y’all pretty, to be dark skin.” And then Wayne quoted a verse from his song [“Right Above”]. I heard the song before and I was offended when I heard the lyrics, but I brushed my feelings off and forgot about what the gremlin said. But him saying it over again made me angry as hell. So me being the outspoken person that I am, I said, “Wayne, your daughter is dark skin so why would you say such ignorance?” He said ‘My daughter is a dark skinned millionaire, that’s the difference between her and you.”

I can tell he was very upset because i bought his daughter up but that is no excuse for what he said. Next he stated, “MY daughter is the first and last dark skin child I’m having. The rest of my baby moms [are] light skinned chicks. I even got an Asian baby moms to make sure I have a daughter with good hair. Too bad we had a son.”

Everybody started laughing and [we] stormed out of the room. Some guys followed us saying “Not everybody hate dark skinned girls. Young Money just allergic to Chocolate.”

Do you believe Lil Wayne’s lyrics are born for an actual dislike from brown-skinned women. Do you think he would actually “genetically engineer” his younger children to be the opposite of the daughter he loves so much? And are his opinions and lyrics a threat to Reginae’s self-esteem?

    Yes he does, but he’s from the south. they have issues down there. he’s too black to have problems with brown women but you hear it in his lyrics…to be fair he doesn’t degrade brown/darker woman he just shows them no love.

    • shake em

      let me clarify, he degrades all woman, but never points a group out specifically

    • kelleykel09

      no let me clarify somethin for you, he has problems, not cause he’s from the south, but because he has problems. im from the south, a majority of my aunts and uncles are light skinned becuase my grandfather is cape verdian, ive never heard any of them ever mention anything about somebody being unattractive because they are dark skinned, mainly because their spouses are. so boo you.

    • buttascott88

      his ex wife is brown skin, nivea is brown, trina is brown i dont think he have a problem with dark skin women i think he just prefer light skinned women

    • nicole33

      being from the south has nothing to do with it! Im from the south and it is not like that at all! How are you going to speak on the south and you aren’t even from here? Look, Wayne has issues! Plan and simple. He doesn’t even like his own skin complexion? But that is a black man for ya! Black men are a disgrace these days.

    • RHONYC

      i got an issue with the fact that lil’ wayne looks WAY to young to have fathered that child.
      in this pic he looks like her creepy uncle trying to give her white wine ‘jesus juice’, if you know what i’m saying. lol 😉

    • RHONYC

      why he look like the molester uncle trying to serve her jesus juice? 😦

    • shake em

      @nicole- i’m from dc(mid atlantic kinda a mixture of north and south) i have family in atl(which is actually more progressive than some of the other areas down there) and new york. the black culture in the south is WAY more color struck point blank period. from “red bones” to paper bag test and such. You may know plenty of people who don’t care about that stuff but a lot more do. not entirely their fault though, theres a sad history down there.

    • heygirlhey

      this very true…i live in the south and most balck guys like their girls light, tan or white girls. dark skinned sistas get no love down here!

    • MsDtown

      Let’s be clear…yes, he does degrade all women and YES he does single out dark chicks, case-in-point – the lyrics from the song in this article “I bet that b*tch look better red”. Let’s keep it real…all Black women are subjected to defending their self esteem when these thoughts are perpetuated. Even the light-skinned chicks learn to focus on their complexion rather than their value as a woman in general. Not a good look. Lil’ Wayne is not invincible and we do not have to accept this from each other. We should treat prejudice black folks the same way we treat Racist white folks. The time for excuses is over.

  • daisy jay

    I remember when Right Above it first came out and I heard that lyric. All I heard in my head was *RECORD SCRATCH*. Color-struck? I’m willing to bet money on that. I mean look at the women he keeps hooking up with. Lauren, Nivea, Black, that Acosta chick idk her d@mn name. Whether if it’s a preference or not…I don’t know. But then again, who cares about Wayne’s scribbled on, crunchy black @ss anyway? I know I don’t.

    • DownSouthZeta

      Wow. Did you even read the article? You sound just as ignorant by referring to Wayne as “crunchy black”. He sounds like he isn’t the only color-struck one.

  • Lalalala

    Wowwww thats crazy! People really start to look at women as far as there personality not the color of there skin not one woman is better than the other just because they have a lighter complexion #pure male ignorance

  • 7lady

    As a brown skinned black woman (bout nia longs complexion). I was appalled too when I heard that verse. Not only Wayne feels this way but plenty blackmen with money do. It’s very sad. That’s why I do not but their music…i buy bootleg. I be damn if they get a dollar from me when they don’t even like my azz.

    • Nya313

    • RHONYC

      those gold diggers who b after:

      ‘a milli, a milli, a milla, a milla, a milli’ lol 🙂

  • shake em

    clearly i hadn’t read the article b4 my post

  • Jinx

    Umm what u mean they have issues “Down there” I’m from the south and Im not color struck. So miss me with that.

    I love all of my black women (that love themselves)

    • shake em

      Okay not all southern people are color struck, but it means a lot more down there than it does in say NY or DC, from what I’ve observed.

    • A"FREE"CAN

      The south is super color struck!!!! I live in ATL and I am a beautiful proud dark skinned woman(same complexion as India Irie) and I do not get much love from the brothas other than to say the same bull ish “You are pretty for a dark skinned chick and you have a great body” but no they do not want to date me only bed me….I lived in Boston, MD and Philly and most of the brothas there (Light, dark, yellow..whatever shade) showed me love even in the company of my light skinned friends! but ever since I moved South dang! even the white men who like black women prefer them light skinned! It’s like I have a disease some women hate on my skin tone and natural hair! they tell me to wear different colors then I will not appear as “dark” Woooo-weeeee! The Lord stills my tongue and my hands. It’s sad but that’s neo-colonialism in the present day African American community propagated by the white and black media. This I know though, I’m moving outta here, they can keep their light skinned “paper bag” mess!

  • Jinx

    And lil wayne is a clown and has always been a been.

    • Jinx


  • d

    I would question any woman that would hook up w/him. Sure he’s rich, but he looks like he never takes a bath,,,,again that’s just too me. I don’t pay those lyrics much attention, because the best girl he ever had was his first & actually wife Toya…I have nothing but respect for her & their child together…anyone after would be a stardom baby….

    • and the world turns..


    • 1TruDiva w/the PlatinumVocals--"Bwackka peepul don't teep!!!

      I totally agree. I said damn near the same thing a few weeks ago and these rabid people damn near died up in this biotch!

      See, the real lil’ Wayne comes out. The ONLY reason he can say that is because you’ll have some dim witted chicks sleep with him.

      Smh…After this and people will STILL support him and fight for him to the death!

      Rich or not, he’s STILL an ugly son-of-a-biotch!

  • London Girl

    Again, Black on Black hate! We really need help as a Race. It’s just said where we are heading. At the rate that Black men are impregnating lighter skinned and non-Black women, the Black race will no longer exist.
    Black is Black, light or dark! Damn fools

    • Lalalala

      Exactly! no matter what color you are women are women and just because some one is lighter does not make them more of a better person than anyone. That’s a shame that yes our own f*&%ing race downs each other.

    • Boomboomroom

      Yup! The black race is going extinct in England. Damn Shame!!

    • Karri

      I totally agree with you London Girl-what kills me is that these brothers who do all the yapping wouldn’t be given the time of day by these women if they didn’t have money so they still paying for the POOH!

    • G.M.

      lmao…when did y’all blk women on this blogsite get a conscious, u know some of y’all are the ones participating in the downing of the black race with y’all bm ain’t sh1t comments, especially u @Boomboomroom, you’ve cut a few brothers down urself lol

    • Weallblack

      Sad but true I totally agree.

  • Jinx

    This is the same fool that said he was a greater man than Malcolm X and MLK. I’ve telling everybody 4 the longest that this guy shoulda been knocked out.

    Hopefully now that this is out Black Women will stop supporting this idiot and he will lose all he has and hopefully gets robbed.


    • Karri

      Now thats the business Jinx-Love me some Mos Def

    • Miami Chick

      Amen, honey, Amen! Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Nas, Common…these uplifting black men are the ones that deserve our support.

    • MsDez

      “Support…Mos Def.” “Uplifting black men like Mos Def…”

      You’re kidding, right?

      You mean the same Mos Def who committed bigamy when he married a Becky while still married to his first wife? The one who has numerous kids with numerous women, and had to be taken to court for back child support??

      What a FAIL. I’d support Weezy before I’d support Mos Def. At least Weezy is up front about what he wants and is not a hypocrite like Mos. Mos pretends to be the spiritual, conscious brother, but does the same grimy sh*t the no-conscious brothers do.

    • Jinx

      Ummm u need to kill yourself. Mos Def has 2 kids with his 1st wife Maria Yepes. And none with his 2nd wife. And neiher are white so what are u talking about.

    • MsDtown

      Cosign – Jinx

    • Miss_deevaray

      I’m with msDez. Mos def is the wrong person to support lil wayne is also. I say just stop supporting hip hop in general. Nobody not even the supposedly conscious rappers are good role models.

    • MsDez

      Dante Smith’s 1st wife was Maria Yepes with whom he has 2 daughters. He married 2nd wife former Toronto stripper Alane Wyatt, who identifies as WHITE, after knowing her for only THREE DAYS, and was STILL married to wife #1 when he married her. It is alleged that Dante also has 4 other kids with 3 other women. If you take a look at Ms Yerpes and Ms Wyatt, you will find that both are as light or lighter than the “ladies” Weezy prefers. Get your facts straight son, and learn to gauge people on their actions rather than their words. Mos talks a good game but he’s just as self-hating and mysogonistic as Wayne.

  • Lee

    That is some ignorance if I’ve ever heard it. How could you bash your own skin colour. Some of us black men need to step up and get rid of this Willie Lynch syndrome and educate ourselves. There is nothing wrong with all the beautiful shades that are in the black race

    • Big Mama937

      You would think with all that money, the gremlin would buy a brain (education). He has obviously sold his soul to the devil and self-hatred is dripping from his pores. He must hate his Momma too and every ancestor on his family tree for that matter! So many young men-completely LOST!

    • Sou

      He will wipe tears of his own sewing from his own daughter’s eyes. I feel for her. She is beautiful and will almost end her life in suicide b/c of her own father (who actually does love her…he is just too ignorant to see that his words and actions are determining his baby girl’s future-money or not).

  • anon

    So what? A lot of black women only date light-skinned men. They don’t want dark kids.

    • anon2

      Like Halle Berry?

    • London Girl

      And they are just as ignorant and pitiful

    • dextress

      I like white guys because they treat me like I exspect to be treated. booo. to blk guys! LOL

    • Cougar_Lover

      i got a lil white girl on the team but thats simply because i am using her lol but to be honest i am an equal opportunist user lol and white chicks have there issues to. especially those who swear up and down to hate white men because one black dude beat the gushy up sooo good. so it is not just a black self hate thing. a lot of races hate their own race for some seemingly minute reason

    • MsDtown

      Not like Halle Berry. Do you even know who she’s dated in the past? Who she’s married? And just because someone is open to dating/loving all types of people is different from self-hating. Just because a brotha or sista dates interracially doesn’t mean that they hate black folks. Let’s please focus on the issue at hand and not perpetuate a whole ‘nother category of hate. Do unto others…

  • Bren

    what an ignorant blk man…I guess he’s allergic to his mom, sisters aunts, etc…what an ugly piece of shiit..does he really think any decent looking woman would ever mess with him if he didn’t have money??? lol heck No!!

    • Lalalala

      Exactly! he would be just like any other regular dude but bc he has money that’s the ONLY REASON light skin women will talk 2 him #REAL TALK!

    • G.M.

      money is the reason the majority of attractive women of any shade or color gets at any man and leaves/dumps most…why do u think intelligent men strive for success…for the amount of pu$$y that becomes available and the luxurious lifestyle, duh…we didn’t come up with the word golddigger for no reason

    • LL

      i think he knows that…i kinda feel sorry for his daughter it’s hard not to take that statement the wrong way…his daughter is pretty not pretty for a brown girl just pretty!!

  • Jenn

    That monkey just ignorant! I am light skinned and thats bull. Most of my friends are brown and beautiful…

  • her?yeahher

    you would think that someone who was trying to educate themselves (wasn’t he trying to go to college to finish his education??) would think ABOVE such blatant ignorance.
    Melanin is blessing….even though it sometimes wouldn’t appear that way…. plus it’s not the first time that he’s made reference to the fact that having money somehow makes you a better person.

    so yeah, I guess he’s still just another dumb a$$ rapper. I feel bad for his daughter though because regardless of how much money her daddy has she will still have issues because of her looks. smh
    Thanks wanye 😦

  • Denzel

    Lol and??? Aren’t dark skinned black women prejudice too? Many of you dark butt bytches only like light skinned or white men so why you got a problem with Wayne’s preference??

    • sinfulchocolate

      Sweetie, please…I’m a dark skinned sista who’s preference is dark skinned men. Guess what they tell me? I’m too dark or I’m very attractive, but I’m not light enough…

      BTW, I’m located in Arkansas…the south. Never had a man tell me that when I lived in Chicago or Detroit.

  • Jinx

    And here is the irony when I’ve talked about this guy guess who was calling me a “hater” yep u guessed it a black woman.

    Aint that some Sh**

  • Kandi Koated

    truth of the matter is, women why would you want a man that doesnt want you. whether because of self esteem problems or self hate wayne lets it be clear what he wants and what he doesnt. Find someone who likes u, regardless of whether they are a blk man or another race.

    • London Girl

      @Thats crazy and yourself

      You both make valid points; I myself would not look twice at lil Wayne, but when a Black male makes comments like this, it could affect (darker skinned) Black women. We are vilified enough by White people. We do not expect, nor want, it from our own men.

  • juliemango

    I identify with lil wayne since i use to suffer from the same inferiority complex i know better now just love beauty in all shades now!!!

  • her?yeahher


  • mark

    Big deal! Some black women only get with white men because they want light-skinned children with “good hair”. Why should Wayne be any different?

  • nymphis


    I respect your opinion. But if you dislike Wayne for that type of statement why would you listen to his music regardless of where you get it from? Something should either offend you or not.stand on how you feel.

  • Tee Miles

    “I like a long haired thick Red Bone” LOL

      What if she was a bald head thick red bone??lol

    “Do you think he would actually “genetically engineer” his younger children to be the opposite of the daughter he loves so much? And are his opinions and lyrics a threat to Reginae’s self-esteem?”

    * * * *

    Actions speal louder than words. I don’t find this whole story hard to believe at all.

    Even if it isn’t true, many black males have this attitude and many black females do too. Hispanics also.

    • shake em

      and Indians (the red dot variety). White people took over the world and set the standard. In every ethnicity even out there in the darkest regions of africa lighter/closer to white means beautiful
