Lil Wayne Claims He Did Not Step On The American Flag On Purpose In Video

Posted By on June 19, 2013

TMZ has obtained footage from Lil Wayne’s “God Bless Amerika” Video shoot, in which the rapper seems to be stepping all over the American flag.

The New Orleans rapper claims it was never his intention to disgrace the flag, and took to Twitter and Facebook to clear the air:



After the tweet, he got deeper into the conversation via his Facebook page, stating:

It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled ‘God Bless Amerika.’ The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America. In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal whats behind it but will never see it on the ground. In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up. I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don’t get that chance. That’s their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That’s who I’m speaking for in this song.”
