PepsiCo has ceased its multi-million dollar contract with Lil Wayne, who was a spokesperson for Mountain Dew, following outcry over a controversial lyric in Future's track "Karate Chop," where Weezy suggests performing a sexually aggressive act against women that will amount to the brutality suffered by Emmitt Till, the Black teen murdered in Mississippi by white supremacists in 1955.
