Following Lil Wayne's troubling statements regarding the death of George Floyd, he speaks with Dr. Dre about the current protests across America.
It's been nearly 32 years and "Fuck The Police" remains as relevant in 2020 than it was in 1988. The passing of George Floyd marks another murder of an innocent Black man at the hands of the police. Several cities across America have witnessed protests turned into riots due to the ongoing outrage surrounding police brutality against the Black community for ages.
Dr. Dre recently spoke to Lil Wayne last night on Young Money Radio where they discussed the current situation. It should be noted it's quite strange that Wayne even brought it up given how controversial his previous statements surround Floyd's death was. But still, Dre engaged in the conversation, stating that he was reluctant to even do the interview given the current climate.
"It’s like, man, that situation, it hurt my heart. My heart is still aching. And it felt like that cop had his knee on all of our necks, meaning black men," he said. After Wayne brought up the officer's arrest, Dr. Dre said that there needs to be more done, including a conviction for the other officers involved.
"They’re supposed to be convicted of first-degree murder.... They’re so brazen with it, broad daylight," he added. "He may as well have been whistling."
He continued, "It’s baffling, but it really feels like something is going to happen now, to at least put us in the area where we can start talking about a way to make this thing stop. I think this one could be the one because – Because I’m seeing white people out there protesting as well… which is a good thing. They should be. You said it right. Any decent human being should see that and go, ‘Fuck this. Enough is enough.'"
