Lil Wayne lyric angers Till family

Epic Records is going to "great efforts" to take down a new Future remix leaked with a vulgar Lil Wayne lyric that has offended the family of a black teenager murdered in the 1950s.

Epic said the company was making the move "out of respect for the legacy of Emmett Till and his family".

New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne made a sexual reference involving the brutal death of Emmett, a 14-year-old Chicago boy tortured and shot in Mississippi in 1955 for whistling at a white woman.

The Till family objected and civil rights veteran the Rev Jesse Jackson reached out to Lil Wayne's management, The Blueprint Group, on the family's behalf.

Neither Mr Jackson nor members of the Till family could be reached for comment and a publicist said Lil Wayne had no comment so far.
