Lil Wayne Releases Official Video For Controversial ‘God Bless Amerika’ In Timely Fashion

lil wayne god bless amerika official video

Remember when Lil Wayne walked all over the American flag, and everyone was (rightfully) upset about it? Well, as bad as it may have looked, Wayne had an explanation for trampling our nation’s flag in the streets of his hometown Hollygrove community in New Orleans where the video was filmed; and now we have the official video for the controversial ‘God Bless Amerika’ single to see if his story lines up with the finished product.

The track aims to show Wayne as a true American icon who “speaks for the people,” and while the first verse of the track does indeed paint that picture amongst a backdrop of impoverished areas that are still marred with devastation from Hurricane Katrina back in 2005, the second verse quickly hops into a world of Weezy that is all too familiar.

You know — smoking, drinking, sex, women, being rich — please, stop me if you’ve heard any of this from Lil Wayne before. It even drew criticism from some via Twitter.


It seems timely for Wanye to release the video for this single in the wake of the George Zimmerman acquittal in the Trayvon Martin murder case, but many are still criticizing Wayne for hitting somewhat of a creative plateau as of late.

Is it possible that he has run out of things to talk about? Have we already seen the best from the YMCMB head honcho? Has Wayne’s music become too predictable and stale? Or is he just so rich that he just doesn’t care anymore?

Check out the video, and tell us what you think in the comments below!
