Rapper Responds to Lil Wayne's Emmett Till Diss

Chicago native, Sean Barnes is angered by the recent diss of Emmett Till by Lil Wayne so he has released a response called "1955," the year in which Till was murdered. The song not only gives a brief history of the life of Emmett Till, but also talks about other horrendous acts committed against African Americans that Barnes believes should be known by Black youth.

Barnes is not the only one upset about Lil Wayne's diss of Till ,as Boston activist, Enisoto Adika Ekunsirinde, has started a petition to demand that Lil Wayne issue a public apology to not only Emmet Till's family but the African American community in general
