Al Sharpton Partners with Lil Wayne to Release His Next Book Under Cash Money Records

ddopaposThere was a time when this partnership wouldn’t have been conceivable.  Lil Wayne didn’t like Al Sharpton, and Al Sharpton didn’t like Lil Wayne.  Sharpton’s last public connection with Lil Wayne came when the pastor met with PepsiCo executives in response to their decision to drop their endorsement deal of Lil Wayne.  The relationship ended after Dr. Boyce Watkins wrote an article on Your Black World giving a scathing critique of the company’s decision to support artists who release lyrics that are degrading toward the African American community.

After that article was released, Sharpton was invited to meet with executives from PepsiCo, but the details of the meeting were not released to the public.  Shortly afterward, it was announced that Sharpton is going to partner with Cash Money Records, the company owned by Lil Wayne and his partner, Birdman.  The company has a publishing arm and has decided to release Sharpton’s next book, “The Rejected Stone.”

The book is set to be released on Oct. 8 and will be published by Cash Money Content and Massenburg Media, in partnership with the Simon & Schuster imprint Atria.  The book covers Sharpton’s path from being a street activist to a national public figure.  It also gives Sharpton’s point of view on rappers and the hip-hop community in general.

“Just because we disagree doesn’t mean we have to be disagreeable,” he said to the Associated Press.

What do you think?  Visionary or hypocritical?

  4. I am NOT at all surprised at this fiasco. “Rev” Sharpton has sold his soul for CA$H MONEY a long time ago. He is a disgrace to the black community and a jack-legged preacher. How can you call yourself a Man of God and come into agreement with someone who makes music that is Anti-Christ and Anti-woman. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson has NO street nor kingdom credibility. They are religious bafoons! #Amen

  5. Can you say meritorious manumission AL Sharpton…inappropriate Behavior!! Cashing in for himself and the hell with the Race. Really Al????

    Two “Me, MY and I’s,” folks. And while Lil Wayne has never even tried to fake like he’s for black folks, and not merely for himself, Al Sharpton has been able to long somewhat camouflage the fact that he has long been selling out black folks, smoothly and slyly, he then teamed up with Obama and his Jew bosses, and now Wayne and his Jews, and he’s serving and idolizing the color GREEN rather than BLACK. Both of these dudes are Jew lapdogs, and blacks should turn against the both of these Judases. — Rev. George Brooks

    We get the leaders we deserve. Is anyone really surprised? After all, Sharpton was able to convince the black community to drop their demands of the president, after sacrificing to vote in large numbers. We all agreed hook, line and sinker even as other communities who sacrificed less made their way to the White House for a share of the spoils. If I were were Sharpton, I would conclude that the people I lead are dense, and wont make too much noise if I showed my true colors and legitimized the evil that is eating our community.

  9. They serve the same master. Walk away from both.

  10. why dont pastor sharpton put up some money and help Rachel Jeantel.invest in her college education.

  11. How can two walk togather except they agree. it is bad when when people that say they are helping Afro Americans teem up with “The Poster boy for drugs and tatts” Little Wayne and help business use such people to sow their TOXIC low life style to our youth as this is a way they should live, no wonder our young people can’t get a job. It is time to be a man and not a trash can.

    • How can Sharpton, as a reverend utilize the services of someone who stands for everything against God. HOW can he as an African American work with someone who spits in the face of every black person with the. Trash he puts out.How can he as a man team with the company of a man who rips apart the image of manhood at every turn. I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND. Please, can some one tell me why.

    Al Sharpton was once an informant for the fbi and who knows if he ever stopped. Now he’s a supporter of Barack Obomber and is quiet about all of Obombers crimes by drone, his refusal to do anything for the Black community while doing everything for gays, etc. Al Sharpton is part of the Black mis-leadership class and is a sell-out for wealth and fame.

    Pepsi To Meet With Emmett Till’s Family & Al Sharpton Over Lil Wayne:

    EXCERPT: Rev. Sharpton released a statement last Friday (May 3) via his National Action Network page stating he and the Till family requested an audience with PepsiCo to spark dialogue in hopes to address the “sensitizing of corporate America,” and hammer out other details.”

    THESE ARE THE “FOLLOWERS”, Y’ALL CALL “LEADERS”!!! I KEEP TELLYING Y’ALL ABOUT THESE SCREACHAS, BUT Y’ALL DON’T WANT TO LISTEN TO THE TRUTH! THIS SCREACHAS IS ‘FOLLOWING’ Lil Wayne, and these khazars (who own him), but he always talking about KEEPING IT REAL? IS HE REAL?

    Now, this clown is ENDORSING this saggin’ wearing negroid sc(rapper) when a couple of months ago, he was DISSING him for making a mockery out of Emmett Till’s death!!!

    TODAY’S EXCERPT: “After that article was released, Sharpton was invited to meet with executives from PepsiCo, but the details of the meeting were not released to the public.

The company has a publishing arm and has decided to release Sharpton’s next book, “The Rejected Stone.”

    THE RELEASE OF THE OUTCOME OF THE MEETING WILL NOT BE SHOWN TO THE PUBLIC NOR WILL IT BE RELEASED!!! I wonder why? Now (Sharptongue) is going to PARTNER with Cash Money Records (which is really owned by khazars), who will publish his book!!!

    ARE Y’ALL TOO BLIND TO SEE; YOU ARE BEING LEAD BY “FOLLOWERS”, WHO CLASSIFY THEMSELVES AS SCREACHAS AND LEADERS? THEY TAKE Y’ALL TO THE WATER AND “DROWN” YOU WITH THEIR LIES, ALTHOUGH, CLAIMING TO “BAPTIZE” YOU DUMB XTIANS TO ‘CLEAN’ YOU OUT? How in the he.ll can some cold water ‘clean your soul’?
