On Lil Waynes final song on Tha Carter III, Weezy F Baby takes a moment to direct a diss towards Rev Al Sharpton. On the Nina Simone sampled DontGetIt, Wayne explains why he doesnt respect Sharpton with some poignant conversation.

You're the type that gets off on gettin on other people, Wayne says as he talks through the end of the song. I much rather you talk to me first and see if you can learn an opinion before you make one. Mr. Sharpton, and anyone like you, you don't know me.

It appears that Wayne is bothered by Sharptons crusade against the N and B words used in rap music. Sharpton has led the charge in trying to force rappers to stop using the words in their music.

You see you are no MLK, you are no Jesse Jackson. You a nobody, to me, you're just another Don King with a perm, just a little more political, he continues. And that just means you're a little unhuman than us humans. And now, let me be human by sayin' fuck Al Sharpton!

Now the Reverend has decided to respond to the verbal attacks as he dismisses Lil Waynes credibility. The following statement was provided by Sharpton for televisions first music blog The Daily Fix.

While some of the rappers dont like the fact that Reverend Sharpton has been leading marches against the use of the N, B, H words and NANs stance against the degradation of women in music, a Gallup poll released last week revealed that Reverend Sharpton has a 50% approval rate among African Americans. So why dignify a response to one rap artist who doesnt even say anything substantive.

Will this start a war of words between the two?
