    Hopefully this will be the resolution everyone needed and the Till’s can now move forward. As we reported previously, Pepsico, who owns Mountain Dew let go of Lil Wayne yesterday due to his vulgar comparison of the horrifying beating to death of Emmett Till, and Wayne’s sexual intentions toward a woman. According to AllHipHop.com the family has released a statement.

    The Executive Director of the Mamie Till Mobley Foundation released the following statement;

    “Back in February, when I first heard the lyrics, I was in utter shock, disappointment and sadness. Just as Mamie Till Mobley didn’t endure the pain of losing Emmett Till alone, many people have stood in solidarity with our family, even if it wasn’t the most popular stand to take.

    “The road less traveled is surely not the easiest but standing for your principles provides the endurance needed to fight for human and civil rights. This decision was monumental, we commend Mountain Dew for taking action towards better social responsibility, and now I finally feel that we can exhale and focus on our beloved Mamie Till Mobley’s charge… Let’s get on with the business of positive thinking and living.”

    Again, we hope this means closure for all involved and that rappers realize there is in fact a line, recent events are proving that the public is tired of artists crossing it. We send our best wishes to all parties.
