Al Sharpton vs. Lil Wayne

Like Johnson, Weezy is also a repeat offender when it comes to the holy war between rap and religious leaders. Rev. Al Sharpton and Wayne got into a war of words back in 2008. Sharpton criticized Weezy for his use of the N-word and B-word, and the rapper wasn't happy about it, addressing the reverend directly on "Don't Get It" from his Tha Carter III. "You see, you are no MLK," Wayne said. "You are no Jesse Jackson. You are nobody to me. You're just another Don King—with a perm." Sharpton was quick to respond: "Why dignify a response to one rap artist who doesn’t even say anything substantive?”
