As the self-professed greatest rapper in the world, Lil Wayne’s no stranger to controversy. Late last year, the Young Money honcho made headlines by threatening a lawyer during a deposition. Then, just recently, there was the whole non-apology to the Emmett Till estate over unsavory lyrics. Now, Weezy finds himself in more hot water as footage has surfaced in which he appears to walk all over an American flag.

The footage is taken from the set of Wayne’s video for “God Bless Amerika”, off his album I Am Not A Human Being II. A large U.S. flag drops down behind Wayne, at which point he performs on top of it.

It’s worth noting that “God Bless Amerika” has a number of different interpretations. Conceptually, it’s either 1) a meditation of America’s aggressive nature and military mindedness, or 2) a sweeping look at how mankind creeps closer to outright godlessness and moral decay.

This was on purpose and possibly planned IMO.

Disgusted, this is what I fought for. What your fathers and their fathers fought for. Now we sit and watch a disgrace of a human being “lil Wayne” trample Ol glory. I just sit her patiently waiting for one of you disrespecting, America thrashing, GOD hating, low life’s to walk by me and smirk some ignorant remark. I will rip the esophagus from the sewage line you call a throat. Bet

@disqus_XW7RbIOrAy:disqus Don’t blame God for such instances, it is the ignorance of other people who can’t choose to accept differences. What moral does the country who creeps closer to outright godlessness have? It provides us a central belief and power, therefore giving us a structure, it is just the idiots like #LilWayne who want to disgrace it mindlessly.

I am perfectly fine with the nation that creeps closer to outright godlessness. God has been the number one reason for murder. Don’t think so? Educate yourself.
