Matter Has Nothing To Do With Me" In A Recent Interview
"I don't feel connected to a damn thing that ain't got nothing to do with me," the rapper told Nightline in a recent interview. He added he was young, black and rich. "My life matter, especially to my b------," he said, winking at the camera.
Lil Wayne (real name: Dwayne Carter) walked out of the TV interview shortly after, angrily telling ABC News' Linsey Davis he's not a "politician.

Wayne backtracked Wednesday, according to reports, apologizing for causing offense.
"When the reporter began asking me questions about my daughter being labeled a bitch and a ho, I got agitated. From there, there was no thought put into her questions and my responses," he said.

Davis had asked the rapper about his sometimes misogynistic, offensive lyrics, to which he responded: "All those same lyrics made me who I am and I am a very successful man.
So, if it takes me to be degrading, then, man, please keep looking out for more, 'cause it's coming, baby."
But would he have a problem with someone calling his daughter a 'ho', she pressed.
"By a certain person, if they're coming directly at her, yeah," Lil Wayne said. "If they're calling her a b---- or a ho, I have a huge problem with that. Yeah, but I've never called a certain female that name unless I got a real big problem with her."
