Lil Wayne understands why some people criticized him for saying racism is over, but claims people don't see it from his perspective. 

The rapper got some backlash last month when he told Fox Sports 1's "Undisputed" that there was "no such thing as racism" because his concert audiences had a lot of white fans. He also said millennials knew that racism wasn't cool. 

When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest. 

"Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don't know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though." Carter said. 

The Grammy-winning rapper said he was lying on the floor when police broke down the door, stepping over his body looking for guns and drugs. But one man stopped and chastised the others for leaving him. 

"He was white as snow. Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me," Carter said. 
 Carter says the man known as "Uncle Bob" personally took him to the hospital and stayed with him. 

"(He) stood there and waited until the doctor said 'He's gonna make it,'" Carter said. 

Still, he acknowledged that despite what he told Skip Bayless on "Undisputed," there is such thing as racism. However, he says when he looks out from the stage, he sees all colors. 

"It's the world out there. It's not a certain part or a certain kind or a certain culture or whatever of people, it's people -- those people out there in that crowd," Carter told the AP. 

He added: "I'm blessed to have that opportunity, so with that said I can only be honest with such a thing, I have never witnessed racism.

" Carter made the comments while promoting the recently published "Gone Till November: A Journal of Rikers Island," a revealing account of his eight-month jail sentence in 2010 after a gun charge.

Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat show brotherly and sisterly love on their latest collaborative banger, “Big Brother x Lil Sister.” J.D and Brat have been a dynamic duo for many years and recently they have been hard at work in the studio crafting a new project together.

Produced by Jahlil Beats, the song boasts a soul sample and a crisp drum beat. On the track, the rap tandem celebrates their unbreakable familial bond. Throughout the song, they compare themselves to some of the legendary duos in music, including Ashford & Simpson and Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

“One thing’s for certain,” spits Dupri, “you see her, you see me,” with Brat adding, “We in this bitch like the 2016 EPMD.”

Later, the So So Def honcho raps, “Now what this is is that Snoop and Dre / Mixed with U-G-K / When the two of us get together there’s no more playin’ in G-A,” with Da Brat adding, “We got that Game and 50 / We got that Ashford & Simpson, n—- / We are solid as a rock and ain’t no n—- f—in with us.”

“Big Brother x Lil Sister” follows their previously-released bangers “Alessandro Michele,” “I Prayed for This” and “F U Pay Me” featuring The-Dream. Dupri and the Da Brat are still working on their Business as Usual mixtape, which has no release date yet.

One thing’s for sure JD and Brat are releasing some serious Head Bangers. So What Cha Sayin’?
