It took more than two months, but Lil Wayne finally has reached out to the family of civil rights icon Emmett Till. In a letter, he said he wanted to “acknowledge your hurt” about his lyric referencing the 14-year-old black Chicagoan beaten to death for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi in 1955. — B.Z.
