Bad Move Wayne...Bad Move

Lil Wayne is facing a little heat about this new song. His new mixtape song "Whip It LIke A Slave", which features Atlanta based group, Dem Franchize Boyz, has brought out critics by the masses. As obviously out of line as the song title is, the songs hook takes it to a different level:

I wake up in the morning, take a sh**, shower, shave/ Stand over the stove and whip it like a slave/ I whip it like a slave, I whip it like a slave/ Stand over the stove and whip it like a slave/

Weezy's verse doesn't help matters much either making various references to slavery, fictional slavery (Kunta Kente...Roots), and anything else coonish. Journalists, music editors, bloggers, parents, fans, and non-fans, have been on fire about the song. I first heard it on the radio, and folks were calling in heated.

What do you think about the song? Does Lil' Wayne deserve the critical backlash he's receiving?
