Small Bite: @LilWayne – When do lyrics go too far?

Full Platter:

Lil’ Wayne is probably somewhere hoping he had held his tongue.

Associated Press is reporting that the rapper is still dealing with the fallout stemming from criticism concerning his lyrics he recorded for a remix of fellow rapper Future’s “Karate Chop.”  The lyrics compares a rough sexual act to the vicious death of Emmitt Till, a black boy killed in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman.

The lyrics have not only drawn ire from the family of Emmitt Till, which prompted the record label to work diligently to have the remix removed, but now music icon Stevie Wonder has added his disdain to the equation.

When asked during an interview, Wonder was pretty blunt. "You can't equate that to Emmett Till," Wonder said. "You just cannot do that. I think you got to have someone around you that — even if they are the same age or older — is wiser to say, 'Yo, that's not happening. Don't do that.'" Wonder, who is also a Lil’ Wayne fan, goes onto to give some great advice: "Sometimes people have to put themselves in the place of people who they are talking about," Wonder said. "Imagine if that happened to your mother, brother, daughter or your son. How would you feel? Have some discernment before we say certain things. That goes for me or any other (song)writer."

So the question remains: when do lyrics go too far and why didn't the record label step in sooner to object to the potential problem it could cause?
