Whoa!

We've always known Lil' Wayne to be controversial, but he has taken it a bit too far this time!

The rapper was recently featured on Future's Karate Chop remix, which was all fine and dandy until we heard the rapper spew an offensive reference to African-American hero Emmett Till.

Lil's lyrics were so degrading that Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid apologized to the 1955 Jim Crow South victim's family himself and promised to remove all traces of the song from the internet.

Epic Records said in a formal apology:

Ne-Yo Could Replace L.A. Reid Or Britney Spears On X Factor!

neyo 2013 grammys x factor judge talks 3

Sounds like Simon Cowell might have some added competition on the X Factor this year!

With L.A. Reid and Britney Spears both gone from the show, there’s still two seats that once again, need to be filled!

So, just who could potentially be up for a spot on the panel?? None other than Ne-Yo!

At the Grammys on Sunday, the R&B crooner confirmed that he’d been in talks right now to join the show, but that “nothing is set in stone” just yet!

Reportedly, talks had started to take place back in January and we think he’d make a solid judge on the reality show!

After all, he did serve as a guest mentor alongside Nicole Scherzinger, during this past season of the X Factor UK’s judges’ houses round!

He also has his own record label, Compound Entertainment, where he’s starting to sign on new talent like R&B/pop newcomer, RaVaughn!

We're pretty sure the Grammy-winner could make the cut — he's definitely qualified, if anything!

Being with Simon Cowell since Season 1, he insists working relationships have nothing to do with this. In fact, it sounds like he's even gonna miss him. Aww!

Reidy broke the news by saying:
