A seemingly unauthorized version of Lil’ Wayne’s remix of Future’s ‘Karate Chop’ was leaked online, containing an insulting reference to Emmett Till, a young African American shot dead in the Jim Crow south, back in 1955. Epic Records have issued a statement of apology and the label’s CEO, La Reid has personally contacted the Till Mobley Memorial Foundation (named after Emmett’s mother) to apologise for any offence caused by the leaked song. However, Lil’ Wayne himself has made no apology for the song which, according to E! Online, contains the line “beat up that pu**y like Emmett Till.”

A post on the Foundation’s Facebook page stated that they were satisfied with Reid’s response, revealing “Mr. Reid stated the song was leaked out and he had not heard the lyrics," read the post. "He is a man of integrity that values our family's legacy and wouldn't allow such heinous usage of Emmett Till's name or dishonor his memory. We have yet to hear from Lil Wayne's camp and he is the one that said it! It was all I could do to hold back my tears while engaged in conversation. Thank you Mr. Reid for now I can exhale."

A version of the song, with the line censored out, is still available to listen to on the Epic Records site and on Soundcloud.
